the best things in life are McCaffrey
Christian McCaffrey was part of a legendary rookie running back crop, which also included Kareem Hunt, Alvin Kamara, Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook, and Joe Mixon. For some reason, McCaffrey is consistently drafted after Hunt, Fournette, and Cook in drafts in spite of having the ideal combination of a high floor and ceiling.
- McCaffrey is the best running back on an offense built around a power-running scheme
- New offensive coordinator Norv Turner has a 30-year history of producing elite fantasy running backs
- McCaffrey finished 9th last year in PPR formats but was a respectable 16th in non-PPR in spite of only 117 carries
- C.J. Anderson will have a role, but he's oft-injured and is playing on a modest one-year contract
- If McCaffrey doesn't get more carries, he proved he's no worse than a No. 2 fantasy back
- If he does get more carries, which is likely, he has the same top-five upside as all the other 2nd-year backs going ahead of him in drafts
