Every year the early rounds of our fantasy drafts have a handful of tough decisions. Players have a range within which they get drafted, and whether it’s because of an injury, holdout or suspension, some players have wider ranges than others. Sometimes it’s because of the situation they're in moreso than the players themselves.

Which brings us to Nick Chubb. The second-year running back was great down the stretch for the Browns last year. Now he can build on that season as the unquestioned lead back for the first 10 weeks. Then Kareem Hunt will return from his eight-game suspension, just in time to possibly take a sizable chunk out of Chubb’s value right before the fantasy playoffs.

So when should you draft Nick Chubb? Two experts, Frankie “Fantasy” Taddeo and Adam Ronis argue both sides of the issue.
