Nick Chubb Could Be Salary Cap Casualty

Thursday, February 22, 2:09 PM

The Cleveland Browns want to keep running back Nick Chubb (knee) around, but he's also recovering from two surgeries on his injured knee this offseason and is due to carry a salary cap charge of just under $16 million in 2024, the final year of his contract and his age-28 season. The Browns would take on around $4 million in dead money if they were to cut Chubb. The Athletic's Zac Jackson points out that Chubb's contract was structured long before his injury. When healthy, Chubb has been one of the league's best RBs, but the Browns also need to account for every penny on their salary cap now and into the foreseeable future. Chubb will mostly likely be back in 2024, but he'll be a risk/reward fantasy selection coming off a gruesome knee injury early last year.

Jahmyr Gibbs News

Jahmyr Gibbs Totals 114 Yards, Touchdown In Win

Sunday, January 21, 6:29 PM

Detroit Lions running back Jahmyr Gibbs rushed nine times for 74 yards and caught four passes for 40 yards in the NFC Divisional Round win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Gibbs delivered a 31-yard rushing touchdown early in the fourth quarter to help the Lions pull away in the 31-23 victory. The rookie remains a threat to score a touchdown or rip off a chunk play on every snap, so he remains a DFS next week despite a tough matchup with the talented San Francisco 49ers' defensive front.
