Chuba Hubbard Fantasy Value Skyrockets Following Christian McCaffrey Injury

Following a Christian McCaffrey injury that is likely to sideline him for weeks, the Chuba Hubbard fantasy football value has skyrocketed. Even after minimal impact through Weeks 1 and 2, Chuba Hubbard is the hottest name on the fantasy football waiver wire, as he steps into the starters roll in the Carolina backfield.

Chuba Hubbard Fantasy Football Outlook

There are a few specific types of fantasy owners who should be sprinting to pick up Chuba Hubbard right now.

The forward-thinking Christian McCaffrey fantasy football owners may have already handcuffed Hubbard on draft night, but for those of you who did not, you should be the first group trying to pick him up immediately. Anyone in a 10-team league or deeper will want to make picking up Chuba Hubbard into serious consideration as well, as he is likely to outperform a wide margin of bench players over the coming weeks.

Beyond the immediate impact he will make, there are a number of reasons that make him a good stash option even when McCaffrey does come back. First of all, we know McCaffrey is phenomenal, but we also know he has an injury history. In years past, the Panthers have done all they can to get McCaffrey back onto the field in a timely manner following an injury. However, with a hamstring, and with McCaffrey’s injuries in general, they seem to linger. He doesn’t always come back at 100% and could split usage.

We saw this exact scenario in Carolina just last season with Mike Davis, who was able to carve out a very nice fantasy roll for himself. I expect Chuba Hubbard to be able to accomplish the same.
