Summary

Christian McCaffrey is arguably the top running back in the league in terms of fantasy production. He is an accomplished rusher and receiver who is heavily involved in the Panthers offense. A high ankle sprain, shoulder ailment, and quad injury hampered his path in 2020 which limited him to only three games. At the end of the season the Panthers likely held him out to err on the side of caution. When healthy he is an extremely productive piece of the Panthers offense. His presence should elevate the Panthers red zone offense that finished 28th in 2020. McCaffrey gained over 370 yards with 17 receptions and six touchdowns in the three games he played in last season. That pace over a full season would've accumulated 481 PPR fantasy points, which would've topped the #1 ranked running back, Alvin Kamara, by 104 points. A bounce-back year to league dominance is expected. (May 15)

Panthers | Christian McCaffrey ready to go (Wed Jun 9, 10:59 PM) - Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey said he is 'back to 100 percent' after dealing with a variety of injuries last season. 'I'm healthy and ready to roll,' McCaffrey said.

Our View: Great news for the Panthers and for Fantasy GMs here. McCaffrey is arguably the best running back in the game, and he's still getting drafted near no.1 overall in most every fantasy draft even though he missed 13 games last year due to injury. With new QB Sam Darnold, the Panthers offense should continue to flow through the superstar running back.
