Panthers head coach Ron Rivera told ESPN that he "wouldn't be surprised if McCaffrey reached 200 carries" this season.
This appears to contradict an earlier report that had C.J. Anderson as the lead running back. Regardless, it does not appear that the team is interested in making McCaffrey an every-down workhorse, but he should continue to be used heavily in the passing game. We have the second-year back projected for 162 rush attempts and 71 receptions.
