CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints
Offense looking terrible? Will Grier starting at quarterback? No problem! Christian McCaffrey failed to find the end zone last week against the Colts, but he still managed to catch 15 passes for 119 yards. He added another 54 yards on the ground. McCaffrey needs just 67 more receiving yards to reach 1,000 on the season, and expect the Panthers’ coaching staff to do everything they can to get him there in the season finale.
The Saints rank eighth in aFPA to opposing running backs this season, so it won’t be an easy final game for McCaffrey, but he’s been so good all season, there’s no reason to think he won’t rise to the challenge one more time. He scored a pair of touchdowns the last time he faced the Saints, and he should once again be considered an elite fantasy option for the final game of the year.
