3 offensive players who shined in Week 4
1. Nick Chubb
No surprise here — Nick Chubb is once again the top offensive standout for the Cleveland Browns in Week 4, as he ran for 118 yards and a touchdown on 19 rushing attempts. Chubb looks truly unstoppable through four weeks, as he is on pace for nearly 2,000 rushing yards on the season. He’s second in the NFL in rushing yards while leading the NFL in rushing first downs and 20+ yard attempts.
There’s not a single running back more valuable in the league right now than Chubb, and he proves that on a weekly basis. Sure, he has one of the best run-blocking offensive line units in the NFL, but he makes a lot of those big plays himself.
In fact, he has 10 more evaded tackles this season than the next best running back, Josh Jacobs. He is prone to breaking off a big run at any point in the game and he has been automatic in the red zone so far.
With two losses against subpar teams this season, it may be time that Kevin Stefanski considers utilizing Chubb even more. In the Browns’ two wins this season, Chubb has carried the ball 45 times, while he has only carried the ball 36 times in their two losses.
Browns fans have especially been disappointed in how he has been utilized in the red zone, as Chubb hasn’t received as many chances as he should within the 10-yard line. Keep an eye on his workload in the coming weeks as he looks to continue his dominant season.
