Chuba Hubbard, RB (CAR)

Scores first NFL touchdown

Hubbard rushed 16 times for 61 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-28 loss to Minnesota.

Hubbard finally hit pay dirt in his fourth start in place of the injured Christian McCaffrey (hamstring). The latter was just placed on IR this past week, assuring the rookie tailback at least two more starts following his solid outing Sunday. Hubbard will get a very favorable matchup in Week 7 when the Panthers take on the Giants' 28th-ranked rush defense (137.2 rushing yards allowed per game).
