Panthers | Norv Turner talks up Christian McCaffrey

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 17:24:07 -0800

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey "had an unbelievable rookie year and did a lot more than that a lot of people would be asked to do and handled (it) all," offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. "He's got such talent, you're just going to keep finding ways to get him the ball and try to create more space for him. That hard-nosed running between the tackles he can certainly do, but I don't know that's what you want to lead with him. Christian is ahead of (where Darren Sproles was), and there are some things we can do that he did, but Christian can run wide receiver routes. There's a lot of things we did with Darren that apply, and there are some things that I think we can do differently with Christian," Turner said.

Fantasy Tip: While it should be considered a positive that Turner considers McCaffrey a more advanced version of Sproles at a similar age, it's probably not the comparison fantasy owners want to hear. Sproles rarely touched the ball enough during his time with Turner to be consistently relevant in fantasy. Barring a huge increase in rushing efficiency, it sounds like it will be difficult for McCaffrey to do much more than he did as a rookie, leaving him in the high-end RB2 discussion.

Panthers | NFL doing concussion protocol investigation on CAR

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 07:24:56 -0800

The National Football League is currently investigating whether the Carolina Panthers properly followed concussion protocol with QB Cam Newton during the NFC Wild Card game against the New Orleans Saints Sunday, Jan. 7. Newton was poked in the eye and also suffered a knee injury after taking a hit to the head from DT David Onyemata. A league source said the injured knee was a contributing factor to Newton staggering to the ground and having difficulty maintaining his balance. He was taken to the team's blue medical tent on the sidelines for evaluation but was not sent to the locker room, as the league's new rules require.

Fantasy Tip: Although an MRI exam on Newton's knee came back positive, the injury was not considered serious and he would have been able to play this weekend if the Panthers had advanced in the playoffs. He should be considered a low-end QB1 heading into the 2018 season.
