Christian McCaffrey News

  • Christian McCaffrey produces · Oct 24, 2022

    New 49ers acquisition Christian McCaffrey saw the field in week seven

    And in true McCaffrey form, at least the healthy version, he looked dynamic and capable on his way to producing 38 yards on eight carries and chipping in two receptions for another 24 yards. It was an extremely short week for the oft-injured back but he showed no evidence of prior ailments and, while Jeff Wilson out-performed him on the ground on fewer carries, McCaffrey's role is certain to increase in week eight. Anything less than full RB1 production and workload from the 26-year-old star would be a surprise. He's listed as DLF's RB5 and may rise in the coming weeks due to injury news around the NFL.

  • Christian McCaffrey traded · Oct 21, 2022

    The 49ers acquired running back Christian McCaffrey from the Panthers in exchanged for draft picks

    It's a bit of a surprise as McCaffrey had not been linked to the 49ers. In fact, there was some belief that he would, instead, soon be a member of the Rams in exchange for disgruntled Cam Akers and additional compensation. Now the Rams have to see the versatile back twice a year if their season wasn't already frustrating enough. In exchange, Carolina receives second, third and fourth round selections in 2023 and a 2024 fifth-round selection. As for McCaffrey, DLF's RB5, he'll immediately slot into the starting role, rendering Jeff Wilson and Elijah Mitchell as damaged goods for the remainder of the season. The acquisition is a boon for game managing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

  • Christian McCaffrey could be traded · Oct 15, 2022

    The Panthers are listening to offers for running back Christian McCaffrey

    It's no real surprise as the team is now down to it's third quarterback, the Matt Rhule head coaching experience failed and, at 1-4, the playoffs seem like an impossibility. McCaffrey has performed well in 2022, compiling a 72/324/2 line while also reeling in 26 receptions for 188 yards and another touchdown, but his talent is lost on a team with such dim prospects looking forward and receiving compensation now would benefit all sides. Still only 26, it's fair to say the once top back has lost a step but he can still be an RB1 producer in the right system. Hhe's listed as DLF's RB5 and could sent packing prior to the league's November first trade deadline.

  • Christian McCaffrey underutilized · Sep 25, 2022

    Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey had 25 carries for 108 yards and two catches for four yards in Carolina's win against New Orleans.

    McCaffrey now has 50 total rushing attempts for 243 rushing yards, and just ten catches for 57 receiving yards on the season. While the 60 touches are encouraging, McCaffrey is on pace for nearly 300 carries on the season, a total that would be close to his career high from 2019. The problem is he's on pace for fewer than 60 catches, bringing his fantasy ceiling down. It's clear the Panthers are having a hard time utilizing his skill set and things need to change quickly for McCaffrey managers to enjoy vintage stats.

  • Christian McCaffrey on injury report · Sep 22, 2022

    Running back Christian McCaffrey was a new addition to the injury report Thursday.

    This type of aggravation was always in the range of outcomes for those who roster McCaffrey. The talented running back is still expected to suit up and should be a full go but it is worth noting that the reps are being limited already after only two weeks. On the positive side of things, a 100 yard rushing game was recorded by the Stanford grad for the first time since 2019. McCaffrey is still an elite option and prime candidate for a dynasty league contender at RB3.

  • Christian McCaffrey salvages his day · Sep 11, 2022

    Christian McCaffrey had 33 rushing yards, four catches, 24 rushing yards and a touchdown in the Panthers opening day loss to the Browns.

    Someone may want to tell "hot seat Head Coach" Matt Rhule that McCaffrey is the best player they have. While the touchdown helped his fantasy day, McCaffrey only had 14 touches on the day. Baker Mayfield did little to impress in this one, outside of a 75-yard broken play pass to Robbie (not Robby) Anderson. Better days should be ahead for McCaffrey, but this was a disappointing return for the fantasy stud. He remains a top tier option in dynasty leagues.

  • Christian McCaffrey rising · Aug 6, 2022

    Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has a reduced workload to ensure he stays healthy

    Head coach Matt Rhule said that McCaffrey won't practice more than two days back-to-back in pads but that doesn't mean dynasty's once-top running back is sitting back on those "off" days. Instead, he's working with trainers and is said to look like the old CMC. Still only 26, McCaffrey is still found as DLF's RB2, clear evidence that his dynamic is well understood by the dynasty community. He's only played 10 games over the past two years due to injuries which could not have been avoided, but now fully healthy, the game-changing back may be the boost the Panthers, and whichever quarterback is under-center come week one, needs. Another injury will result in a massive free-fall in value.

  • Christian McCaffrey reduced reps · Jun 20, 2022

    The Panthers plan to change their practice approach with running back Christian McCaffrey to help him stay healthy

    The hope is that a lighter practice load, in combination with no snaps during the pre-season, will help the risk-on dynasty star to remain on the field for the entirety of 2022. McCaffrey, for as good as he had been early in his career, could now be considered to be in a make or break season for the second half of his career after two injury-shortened seasons. Following three years of perfect attendance, the once top-back has played only 10 games over his past two campaigns. There's no questioning McCaffrey's potential impact when healthy and there's every hope he returns his former-self in 2022. Now listed as DLF's RB2 behind only Jonathan Taylor, there's arguably no greater risk-reward than Christian McCaffrey heading into the 2022 NFL season.
