Facing tough snap competition

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-30

The Panthers took Texas RB Jonathon Brooks (torn ACL) in the second round of the 2024 NFL Draft, potentially giving Hubbard competition for a starting job, Alex Zietlow of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Hubbard was positioned to enter Week 1 as a starter for the first time in his pro career, and while he's still the favorite for that task, snap competition in the Carolina backfield just got much tougher. The Panther took Brooks with the 46th overall pick, making him the first RB drafted in 2024 (20 selections before Trey Benson). They also still have Miles Sanders, who was a massive bust in the first season of his four-year contract but has a guaranteed $4.02 million salary for 2024. It's a situation where Hubbard's projection as the Week 1 starter might not mean much in terms of fantasy expectations for the full season, especially if reports continue to be positive on Brooks' rehab from the ACL tear he suffered Nov. 11.

Workhorse role to finish season

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-07

Hubbard rushed 23 times for 83 yards and brought in both targets for nine yards in the Panthers' 9-0 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

As has typically been the case during the latter portion of the season, Hubbard handled the clear lead back role and furnished his fourth tally of more than 80 rushing yards in the final six games, which all came in conjunction with 20-plus-carry workloads. Hubbard set new career bests with 902 rushing yards and 233 receiving yards across 17 games, sending him into the offseason with plenty of momentum.

Eclipses 70 total yards in loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Hubbard rushed 11 times for 45 yards and secured four of five targets for 26 yards in the Panthers' 26-0 loss to the Jaguars on Sunday.

Hubbard didn't have anywhere near the opportunities he'd enjoyed in several recent games, with the Panthers' inability to keep up with the Jaguars helping to neutralize the ground game. Hubbard's carry total was his lowest since Week 11, and he'll have one more opportunity to put together a productive effort in what has been a solid 2023 campaign when Carolina hosts the Buccaneers in Week 18.

Cleared for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-29

Hubbard (hamstring) was as full practice participant Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Jacksonville.

The Panthers listed Hubbard as limited Wednesday and Thursday but apparently liked what they saw in practice and don't have any doubts about his Week 16 availability. He has a five-game streak with at least 64 percent snap share, 14 carries, 17 touches and 11.6 PPR points, piling up 446 yards and four TDs in that time.

Limited again Thursday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-28

Hubbard (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Thursday, David Newton of reports.

As was the case Wednesday, Hubbard is operating with a cap on his reps due to a hamstring issue one day later, while fellow running back Miles Sanders practiced without limitations due to a toe concern. Hubbard thus has one more chance to get back to all activity this week before the Panthers potentially give him a designation ahead of Sunday's game in Jacksonville.

Dealing with hamstring issue

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-27

Hubbard was limited in practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.

In the wake of the Panthers' Week 16 loss to the Panthers, Miles Sanders (toe) was the running back revealed to be dealing with an injury. However, Sanders was able to log a full session to kick off Week 17 prep, while Hubbard operated with a cap on his reps. As such, the situation will be monitored to see if Hubbard may be in danger of yielding snaps to Sanders on Sunday at Jacksonville.

Heavy workload in Week 16 loss

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-24

Hubbard rushed 16 times for 43 yards and a touchdown and brought in his only target for eight yards in the Panthers' 33-30 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Hubbard once again had the backfield work early all to himself, outpacing Miles Sanders by 13 carries. However, he found surprisingly tough sledding against a Packers defense that had been frequently vulnerable to the run, but he managed to salvage his fantasy day with a four-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that served as his fifth of the campaign and tied his career high. Hubbard next takes aim at a tough Jaguars run defense in a Week 17 road matchup New Year's Eve.

Over 100 total yards in win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-17

Hubbard rushed 22 times for 87 yards and secured both targets for 16 yards in the Panthers' 9-7 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Hubbard outpaced Miles Sanders by 16 carries in the victory and parlayed the opportunity into his second straight 87-yard tally on the ground. The second-year back also recorded multiple catches for the seventh time in the last eight games, and he's now logged over 20 rush attempts in three straight contests. Hubbard heads into a Week 16 home matchup against the Packers' porous run defense with the lead job firmly in hand.

Continues to lead team's offense

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-10

Hubbard rushed 23 times for 87 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in Sunday's 28-6 loss to the Saints.

Hubbard had more than twice as many rushing yards (59) as Bryce Young had passing yards (29) in the first half. Unfortunately for the 24-year-old running back, the negative game script coupled with more touches for Miles Sanders (who finished with 10 carries for 74 yards) limited Hubbard's opportunities after halftime. Hubbard has built up some momentum with at least 92 scrimmage yards in three consecutive games heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Falcons.
