Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey gashes Titans on only five touches

Panthers rookie RB Christian McCaffrey's day is done against the Titants:

"Christian McCaffrey wearing a hat on the sideline.
His day: 3 carries for 33 yds, TD
2 catches for 39 yards
1 glimmer of hope"

Related players: Jonathan Stewart

Fantasy Impact: 

That sound you hear is the sound of McCaffrey's hype train having already pulled out of the station. With Jonathan Stewart still likely to see 200-plus carries, the third round feels pretty early for Christian McCaffrey, though he has Danny Woodhead-type (70-plus catch) upside in the passing game. The issue is Cam Newton has never been one to check down or target his running backs heavily, so it's fair to question how easily McCaffrey will fit into the Panthers offense. Given the fact that they used the eighth overall pick on the Stanford back, changing the offense to suit his skill set would seemingly be a major priority, but how flexible is Newton? Stewart has missed three games in each of the last three seasons, and has missed a total of 26 games in the last five seasons, so McCaffrey has RB1 upside if Stewart is sidelined.
