CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 vs. Atlanta Falcons

It’s hard to find enough adjectives to describe how good of a season Christian McCaffrey is having. He turned in another excellent performance last week against the Packers, running for 108 yards and a touchdown while adding 33 additional yards on six receptions. McCaffrey is on pace for 2,462 scrimmage yards, 85 receptions, and nearly 25 touchdowns. If you were lucky enough to draft him, you’re likely near the top of your league.

This week, McCaffrey is a must-start once again as he faces the Falcons. Atlanta ranks 16th in aFPA to opposing running backs so he should have little to no trouble producing in a nice matchup. Although, even if McCaffrey was facing an entire army of super-soldiers, he’d still be a must-start. He’s a monster and he should never leave your lineup while healthy.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 at Green Bay Packers

Christian McCaffrey is a straight-up monster. He had another phenomenal fantasy outing last week against the Titans, racking up 166 yards from scrimmage and scoring three touchdowns. McCaffrey is one of the most exciting players in football right now and his 13 touchdowns through eight games puts him on pace for 26 – which would tie Marshall Faulk for fourth-most all-time in a single season.

This week, McCaffrey faces a Packers defense that ranks 25th in aFPA to opposing running backs this year, so there should be plenty of room to run. Not that fantasy owners should ever consider benching the electric McCaffrey, but in a nice matchup, he should have another great week. He’s a must-start in all league formats and is the most valuable asset in fantasy football right now.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 vs. Tennessee Titans

Christian McCaffrey is a monster. Despite facing a phenomenal defense and playing from behind the entire game, he still put up 117 yards and a touchdown on the ground against the 49ers last week. He added 38 yards on four receptions and has no scored at least one touchdown in all but one game this season – with three games with multiple touchdowns. McCaffrey is the best weapon the Panthers have and they aren’t afraid to use him. He’s fifth in the league in rushing attempts, despite playing one less game than all four players in front of him.

This week, McCaffrey faces a Titans defense that ranks 10th in aFPA to opposing running backs and really bottled up the Buccaneers rushing attack a week ago, holding Ronald Jones and Peyton Barber to a combined 55 yards on 21 carries. McCaffrey is matchup proof, however, and fantasy owners shouldn’t hesitate to use him as an elite option in all league formats. His workload alone gives him a very high floor and his ceiling is as high as anyone in the league in any game.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at San Francisco 49ers

Christian McCaffrey has been a monster this season. He’s third in the league in rushing yards, despite having his bye week already out of the way, and he’s third among running backs with 35 receptions. His nine touchdowns are tied with Aaron Jones for the most in the NFL and he’s coming off a two-score performance against the Buccaneers before the bye last week. He’s also averaging 27 total touches per game and is the focal point of the Carolina offense.

This week, McCaffrey has a tough matchup against the 49ers, who are second in the league in aFPA to opposing running backs. However, this should be a low-scoring game with two very good defenses and struggling passing attacks. That should bode well for McCaffrey’s workload to continue, and he’s too talented to ever consider benching, regardless of matchup. Start him, and be glad you drafted him.

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.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Christian McCaffrey had another great game against the Texans last week. He was a one-man offense essentially, touching the ball 37 times and scoring the Panthers’ lone touchdown on his way to 179 yards from scrimmage. McCaffrey leads the league in rushing yards and leads all running backs in receptions. He’s the most important part of the Carolina offense and should remain an elite fantasy option every week.

This week, McCaffrey faces a Jacksonville defense that had been excellent against the run this season. They’ve given up the sixth-least aFPA to the running back position in PPR leagues. However, McCaffrey’s talent and usage make him a must-start every week regardless of matchup.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Houston Texans

After a disappointing game against the Buccaneers in Week 2, Christian McCaffrey destroyed the Cardinals last week with 188 yards from scrimmage, including a 76-yard touchdown run. McCaffrey is second in the league in rushing attempts, but is averaging 5.4 yards per carry. He’s been as advertised so far this season and should continue to thrive as the primary cog in the Panthers’ offense.

This week, McCaffrey faces a Texans defense that ranks seventh in aFPA against the running back position so far this season, but he’s still a must-start in all league formats. The number of touches he gets – 24.7 per game so far this year – gives him a high floor and his upside is as big as anyone in the league. He’s an elite option every week, and fantasy owners shouldn’t even consider sitting him.
