Christian McCaffrey News

  • 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.

    comment When healthy, Christian McCaffrey is the best player in Fantasy Football. Unfortunately, he hasn't been that recently, having played in only 10 games since 2019. If he can get his health back on track, CMC could reclaim his spot as Fantasy Football's best player.
