Panthers | Christian McCaffrey sees 12 touches

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 15:49:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushes eight times for just 10 yards in Week 2 against Buffalo while adding four grabs for 34 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey might see more work in the passing game in upcoming weeks with Greg Olsen (foot) expected to be sidelined for multiple weeks. McCaffrey is a decent RB3 or flex play in PPR formats, especially in Week 3 against a very giving Saints defense.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey debuts with 18 touches

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:51:38 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 47 yards in Week 1 at San Francisco and he added a team-high five receptions for 38 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey had a pretty solid debut in his return to the Bay Area, and his college coach David Shaw was there to greet him. He had a total of 18 touches to 20 for Jonathan Stewart, or basically an even split. He has the potential to be a fantasy stud in PPR formats. The Panthers host the Bills in Week 2.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey to be featured

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 07:24:44 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey has a large part of the offense devoted to him, according to team sources, and he has his own separate playbook.

Fantasy Tip: The hype machine continues to churn for the rookie. He's an RB2 but has RB1 potential to go with some risk of the unknown as he enters the league.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey electric in limited work

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 15:02:01 -0700

Carolina Panthers rookie RB Christian McCaffrey rushed three times for 33 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 39 more yards versus the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey took a counter run and beat everyone to the edge on a 17-yard score before adding a 38-yard catch-and-run on a screen pass the following possession. The rookie's explosion is as advertised, and about the only thing that may keep him from being a league-winning player this year is if Jonathan Stewart can play 16 games again. McCaffrey should be a high-end RB2 even in a committee with elite RB1 upside if/when Stewart needs to miss games.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey solid in preseason debut

Wed, 09 Aug 2017 20:23:05 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey ran the ball seven times for 33 yards in the team's preseason opener Wednesday, August 9, versus the Houston Texans. He was also targeted once in the passing game, but failed to haul in the reception.

Fantasy Tip: This was a solid showing from McCaffrey, who might be even more involved than this once the regular season kicks off, as the team has been peppering him with a lot screens and short passes throughout camp. Even with veteran Jonathan Stewart established as the starter in Carolina, McCaffrey should have enough of an active role to merit being drafted in most leagues. He might be viewed as a FLEX option, but considering his immense talents, the ceiling is much higher than that, especially if Stewart goes down at some point with an injury.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey running wildcat

Sun, 06 Aug 2017 18:26:15 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey looked comfortable running a wildcat session during practice Sunday, Aug. 6, according to Max Henson of Panthers.com.

Fantasy Tip: After spending a top-10 pick on McCaffrey, it should be no surprise that Carolina is trying to find as many ways as possible to put the ball in his hands. He should see enough touches to be a solid flex play, and he could approach RB2 territory in PPR formats.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey active in passing game

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 17:46:07 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey was targeted on an excessive number of short passes and screens Thursday, July 27, which could indicate there are "big plans for him." He even drew a lot of "oohs and ahs" from fans on the hill overlooking the practice field.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey figures to be one of the frontrunners for this year's Offensive Rookie of the Year award, as not only does he have the skill to make a big impact out of the gate, but it looks like he'll also have a very active role in the offense. The incumbent starting running back, Jonathan Stewart, has missed at least three games in each of the past five seasons, so McCaffrey should receive plenty of opportunities during his rookie campaign. He deserves consideration in all formats.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey to work out with QB

Sat, 15 Jul 2017 13:56:42 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey said he is expects to catch passes from QB Cam Newton (shoulder) this weekend and next weekend.

Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey should have a role in the passing game this season, so it will help him to build chemistry with Newton leading up to the season. McCaffrey probably will also be involved in the running game, which makes him a solid option for fantasy owners. He should be considered a No. 3 running back or flex option in leagues.

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 18:29:38 -0700

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey wants to do it all

Thu, 15 Jun 2017 20:49:30 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey had his first practice Thursday, June 15, and he said he hopes to be used in as many ways as possible.

Fantasy Tip: There is no denying his versatility, and while his exact role in the offense remains to be seen, you can comfortably draft him as flex option in PPR formats. In rookie drafts, McCaffrey should be in the mix for the top pick.
