Draft note
by John Paulsen
In his second season, McCaffrey racked up 326 touches (including 107 receptions) for 1965 total yards and 13 touchdowns. He’s one of the safest bets in the first round, especially in PPR formats. The Panthers are rumored to be trying to lessen his workload, but that’s not anything fantasy owners should be worried about. He’s very likely to see around 300 touches again in 2019.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (London Game)

Christian McCaffrey went nuclear last week against the Jaguars. He ran for 176 yards and a pair of touchdowns – including one for 84 yards – and he added 61 yards and another touchdown on six receptions. McCaffrey leads the Panthers in receptions and targets, and he leads the entire NFL with 587 rushing yards. He’s the main cog in the Carolina offense and he has seven touchdowns through five games. If you were lucky enough to draft him, you’re likely winning your league.

This week, McCaffrey faces a Buccaneers defense that has allowed the least aFPA to opposing running backs this year. He was actually held to only 53 yards from scrimmage the last time he faced Tampa Bay, his one game without a touchdown this year, but that shouldn’t scare away fantasy owners. He’s an elite option each and every week and should be active in all league formats. McCaffrey is nicked up with a back injury, but early reports sound like it isn’t too serious.
