A COVID outbreak among the Cleveland Browns running backs has thrown an unexpected twist into fantasy lineup decisions for those who have Nick Chubb on their rosters. All four running backs affected were fully vaccinated, so they could still be cleared by game time. If not, D'Ernest Johnson will have to carry a heavy load.

ON BYE: Chicago, Cincinnati, Houston, New York Giants

Fantasy football rankings for Week 10 are based on the point-per-reception (PPR) scoring used in most seasonal and daily fantasy football formats. One point is awarded for every 10 rushing and receiving yards and one point for every 20 passing yards. Six points are awarded for touchdowns scored, four points for passing TDs and one point for receptions.

Rankings are compiled by FantasySharks.com.

Cleveland Browns running back D'Ernest Johnson (30) could have to carry a heavy load this week.
