Week 7 stats: 63 rushing yards, 2 receptions, 10 receiving yards, 1 touchdown — 15.3 fantasy points
One thing to know: The Carolina Panthers traded away starting running back Christian McCaffrey last week, opening up the top job in the backfield to two contenders — D’Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard. Hubbard appeared to be the top man in the backfield to start the game, but an ankle injury cut his night short.
The Carolina offense is in flux right now, and will be taking offense wherever they can get it. It’s possible they move forward without a lead back, instead choosing to ride the hot hand week-to-week. Also, worth noting that between Foreman and Hubbard, it was Hubbard that found the end zone.
