Panthers | Christian McCaffrey unlikely for Week 7 (Tue Oct 20, 03:55 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) isn't expected to play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, but he 'has a shot' to play in Week 8 versus the Atlanta Falcons, according to NFL Network's Mike Garofolo.

Our View: The Panthers don't really know when McCaffrey will be back. He's getting closer and we should have a better idea about his status next week.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey still with no set timetable? (Mon Oct 19, 02:33 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) has missed four games with a high-ankle sprain, and head coach Matt Rhule told reporters Monday, Oct. 19, that he's not sure if McCaffrey will return in Week 7, Week 8 or Week 9.

Our View: The Panthers have no idea when McCaffrey is going to be back but we can say they aren't rushing him back. Mike Davis has been the fill in with McCaffrey out and he's got RB1 potential for Fantasy GMs each week.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey to miss two more games? (Fri Oct 16, 02:16 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) was not activated from the Reserve/Injured list this week and 'it seems unlikely' he will be ready for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN.com's David Newton, who suggests Week 8 is a more realistic time for his return.

Our View: Mike Davis teams will get at least two more weeks of his RB1 production. He very likely will end up being the most valuable waiver wire running back, if not player at any position, of the year.

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey unlikely to go in Week 6? (Mon Oct 12, 01:10 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) is technically eligible to come off the Reserve/Injured list this week, but The Associated Press' Steve Reed believes there is very little chance he will be ready to play against the Chicago Bears in Week 6.

Our View: The Panthers are on a winning streak without McCaffrey which is an amazing feat. The team won't rush their superstar running back as he continues to heal from this ankle injury. Mike Davis will continue as their lead back while McCaffrey is out.
