Draft note
by John Paulsen
McCaffrey was the No. 3 running back in 2018 before his epic 411-point half-PPR 2019 campaign in 2019. The Panthers have a new quarterback (Teddy Bridgewater), but McCaffrey will continue to be the centerpiece of the Carolina offense and has a good chance to repeat his No. 1 RB finish if he’s able to play 15+ games. His 266 targets over the last two seasons are 48 more than second-place (James White). His 142 targets last year were the most by any running back since PFR started to track targets in 1992. His 124 targets in 2018 were the sixth-most.

CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

It’s hard to know what else to say about Christian McCaffrey, as the guy is just extremely dominant in every facet of the game. He opened the season with 23 carries, three receptions, 134 combined yards and a pair of touchdowns, and he looked both dynamic in the open field, and tough as nails fighting for extra yards. McCaffrey only saw four targets, which is a bit low for him, but time will tell if that’s a one-game thing, or an aspect of the new offense and Teddy Bridgewater.

This week, he’ll face a Tampa Bay defense that has been really good against the run going back to last year. However, it doesn’t matter who McCaffrey plays. He should be active every week, regardless of matchup. The Buccaneers gave up a pair of touchdowns to Alvin Kamara – although just 16 yards rushing – so expect McCaffrey to find ways to get his fantasy points. Start him, as always.
