The Top RBs To Start in Week 17

Chuba Hubbard, RB, Carolina Panthers (at JAX)

Analysis by Kyle Soppe | I never would have thought that we’d be here: ready to crown 2023 fantasy champions, and Chuba Hubbard would be working on a stretch of five straight games returning fantasy value.

But here we are! Players like this are what makes fantasy equally frustrating and fun. On one hand, active managers who identified this as a potential volume spot are being rewarded in a significant way. On the other, a player like Hubbard allows a team that drafted poorly to overachieve by simply getting lucky with additions.

Hubbard has at least 17 touches in all of those strong performances, and that role appears here to stay. The Carolina Panthers have no reason to throw away these final two games because the Bears have their first-round pick, so I’m expecting their offense to function this week as it has for a month now: run-centric with Hubbard being the center of their universe.

The Panthers’ workhorse is a top-20 play for me, ranking ahead of players like Austin Ekeler and Derrick Henry, options that were considered fantasy royalty less than four months ago.
