Week 15 at Green Bay Packers
Christian McCaffrey didn’t return last week, but the team seems to think he’ll be back at some point this year. In the one brief re-appearance from him earlier this season, he had a full workload, so if he starts, expect him to put in a full day’s work, despite the Panthers being out of the playoff hunt. Matt Rhule probably has McCaffrey on his fantasy team. That’s the only explanation for why they’re not shutting him down at this point.
Be sure to check if Rhule’s fantasy team is in the playoffs this week. If so, McCaffrey might be active. If not, sit him.
In all seriousness, if McCaffrey starts, he should be active. If he sits, dial up Mike Davis once again. Be sure to refresh that injury report constantly up until game time, and be ready to make a last-second swap.
