I know for sure Chubb wouldn’t be putting up McCaffery numbers in Carolina.I strongly disagree with that McCaffrey is the best running-back.
Scheming is fine, but it helps disguise the fact that he isn't a power runner. Chris isn't a great north-south runner. Chubb is far superior at banging through holes and shedding tacklers.
Chubb had only 58 fewer YAC than McCaffrey despite only starting in 11 games in 2018. Adjusted for a 16-game starting season, Chubb would have ranked only behind Barkley in YAC. McCaffrey also only ranked 11th in tackle-breaking.
If they switched teams, do you believe McCaffrey would be putting up Chubb's numbers?
McCaffery just has an extremely unique skill set that we’ve never seen in the NFL. One of the most elite pass catching backs ever and the NFL is trending that way anyways.
To be able to make those kinds of plays as an RB is mind blowing considering where he gets the ball is rarely that far down the field. He’s electric.
Also, of course Chubb is a better between the tackles old fashioned runner. Just in today’s NFL he’s not the best overall back.
