It sounds like the team wants to get back to running the ball. The tweet said Rhule added they won't throw 40 times a game. Rhule also said: "We're going to redefine who we are and we're going to run the football and protect the quarterback." It will help to get McCaffrey back in the fold, but Hubbard proved worthy in the run game against the Eagles in Week 5, rushing for over 100 yards. Hubbard ran just 16 times in Week 6 while Darnold threw 41 times.
CAR RB Christian McCaffrey - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Minnesota Vikings
Christian McCaffrey almost returned this past week against the Eagles, but he wound up being inactive for the second straight week. He’s set to return this week, but keep an eye on the injury report as it gets close to game time, and have a backup plan in place.
For his return, McCaffrey gets a Vikings defense that ranks 12th in aFPA to opposing running backs. McCaffrey was dynamite in his first two games before getting hurt in Week 3 this year, so fantasy managers should definitely start him so long as he’s active. Despite missing nearly three games, he still has 364 yards and a touchdown this season to go along with 16 receptions.
