For anyone out there who was still on the fence about whether or not Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb would be an RB1 or RB2 option by the end of the season, I think he just gave us all the answer in fewer than 15 seconds. 


Chubb exploded against the Falcons defense in the third quarter of Sunday's game to blaze a 92-yard touchdown run, the longest in Browns franchise history, to silence any remaining doubters of his fantasy value and ownership urgency in the future. 

The 92-yard TD rush was also a Browns' franchise record as the longest scoring rush by any players in Cleveland's history – a history that includes running back Jim Brown. 

Ever since the Browns shipped former starting RB Carlos Hyde off to the Jacksonville Jaguars in October, we've been waiting for Chubb to show us if he can be the real deal. But I think it goes without saying his time has come, and if he isn't owned in your fantasy league, you want to race to the waiver wire, now.
