Panthers | Christian McCaffrey tallies two TDs on MNF

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 21:07:57 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey registered 23 rushing yards on five rush attempts and 27 receiving yards on three catches in the team's Week 10 victory Monday, Nov. 13, opposite the Miami Dolphins. He also found the end zone twice -- once on the ground and once through the air.

Fantasy Tip: This was the rookie's first career multi-touchdown game, and he's now posted five scores (two rushing, three receiving) this season. Although Jonathan Stewart can regularly be relied upon for more carries in the backfield, McCaffrey has proven to be a pretty reliable FLEX option every week, as he consistently gets targets. In fact, he's drawn five or more looks from Cam Newton in every game this season, while recording at least three catches for each outing in the process.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey runs well in win

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 14:19:22 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 15 times for 66 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey took over in the backfield with Jonathan Stewart bottled up for 21 yards on 11 carries. Stewart also lost a pair of fumbles, so that helped McCaffrey see more time with head coach Ron Rivera getting away from the veteran. It's uncertain if it's a changing of the guard in Charlotte, or if Stewart is back in business in Week 10 against the visiting Dolphins. Definitely a situation worth watching closely.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey totals 52 yards

Sun, 29 Oct 2017 13:58:43 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed four times for just three yards in Week 8 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he added five catches for a team-high 49 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey hasn't been terribly effective rushing the ball this season, but he has been a decent RB3 or flex play for fantasy owners in PPR leagues. The Panthers host the Falcons in Week 9.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey to lose a few snaps?

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 08:12:58 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey may cede a bit of work on passing downs moving forward to Cameron Artis-Payne, as head coach Ron Rivera expressed concern about the rookie's continued ability to hold up against linebackers. "It's one of the things you get concerned with having Christian in there. … There's some really good things that Cap (Artis-Payne) has done this week, so if the right situation comes in, (he) may get some opportunities," Rivera said.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound like anything overly concerning for owners of McCaffrey, as it might actually be a good thing for his ability to make it to the season if he can avoid taking a few unnecessary hits. With that said, fewer snaps means fewer opportunities to make plays, so owners may want to keep an eye on this situation just to make sure. Based mostly on the strength of his heavy involvement as a receiver, McCaffrey should remain a solid RB2 in PPR formats.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey staying patient

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 19:34:17 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey expects big plays to come, and he said he is trying to avoid pressing. "Right now it's just being patient," McCaffrey said. "You've got to let the game come to you. You can't press. You can't try to make something crazy happen when nothing is there."

Fantasy Tip: Although McCaffrey hasn't provided explosive plays in the running game or on special teams, he has been piling up catches out of the backfield. He can be a low-end RB2 in PPR formats against a struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense in Week 8.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 27, and is not on the injury report for Week 8.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey has received most of his work in the passing game and should have a similar role this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He can be a No. 2 running back in point-per-reception leagues and a flex option in standard leagues.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey practices in full

Thu, 26 Oct 2017 12:32:02 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 26.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey should be in uniform against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this week. He has been receiving most of his touches in the passing game this season and will continue to be a receiver out of the backfield. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in point-per-reception leagues.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey full go

Wed, 25 Oct 2017 12:22:29 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (wrist) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Kareem Hunt and Leonard Fournette have stolen the rookie spotlight this year, but McCaffrey has been special in his own right. He quickly showed Cam Newton that he could be his safety blanket, especially after Greg Olsen went down. The rookie easily leads his squad in catches (44) and makes for a weekly low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 in PPR leagues.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey totals 46 yards

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 14:51:14 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey ran seven times for just 10 yards in Week 7 against the Chicago Bears and he added seven receptions for 36 yards on nine targets.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey and the Panthers offense has been rather stagnant over the past couple of games. The rookie failed to find the end zone for the first time in three games. Right now he is best used as an RB3 or flex fantasy option heading into Week 8.
