A couple weeks ago, I participated in an NFFC draft and ended up with the fifth pick. Christian McCaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara and Jonathan Taylor were the first four selections, and I was staring at a few running backs with red flags. Saquon Barkley, who is recovering from a torn ACL and Derrick Henry, facing inevitable regression and an offensive shake up.[1] Drafting RBs in the first round with red flags is easily the quickest way to lose your league. Normally I would’ve just pivoted with a Zero-RB approach, but here I opted to select Nick Chubb, a player with a high floor and an underrated ceiling. The next player off the board was Ezekiel Elliott. After the draft I questioned myself a bit for going the route I did. I mean, everything is pointing toward Zeke bouncing back, right?

Here are two reasons I will continue drafting Chubb over Elliott.
