Chuba Hubbard (Carolina Panthers)

After Singletary, the other running backs are entering this week with some uncertainty but if things break the way they might, they could be good plays this week. One of those running backs is Chuba Hubbard with the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers signed Miles Sanders in the offseason to a sizable contract that made it seem like he was going to be the primary running back in Frank Reich's new offense. The season started that way with double digit carries in three of the first four games.

However, the past two games Sanders has played in he has had only nine total carries. Meanwhile, Hubbard has been much more involved and he has had double digit carries in three of the last four games.

The Panthers are playing the Colts this weekend and they are allowing on average 127.4 rushing yards per game and have allowed the most rushing touchdowns with 15. Hubbard is a good start this week as long Frank Reich doesn't shift back to Miles Sanders.
