Nick Chubb up for Ground Player of the Week honors for third straight week

Chubb has been a candidate for the award every week so far in 2022


There's no denying it now — Nick Chubb has been the best running back in the NFL to start the 2022 season.

He's on the ballot for Ground Player of the Week honors for the third consecutive week as a result, and it's no surprise to see him as a candidate again after he built another dominant performance Thursday night against the Steelers with 23 carries for 113 yards and one touchdown. He's topped 100 yards in two of three games to start the year, and he currently sits first on the league rushing leaderboard with 341 yards.

He's the only running back this year who's been up for the Ground Player of the Week vote every week, too. This week, he joins Chicago's Khalil Herbert and Atlanta's Cordarrelle Patterson. Fans can cast their votes here.

Throughout the 2022 season, FedEx and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund will donate $2,000 in the name of each FedEx Air & Ground Player of the Week to HBCUs across the United States. Over the course of the season, HBCUs will receive more than $100,000 in grants to support needs-based scholarships through the 2023-2024 school year.
