2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
Christian McCaffrey's finish as the RB16 is somewhat impressive when you consider he was 39th among RBs in carries and the third in rushing attempts on his own team. McCaffrey had six weeks with at least 10 fantasy points, but he also had three weeks under 5 points. Because of his lack of consistent rush attempts, his scoring was almost completely tied to his receiving workload and after leading all running backs in targets and his role defined, that value is likely sustainable.

One of the obstacles for McCaffrey was Jonathan Stewart who handled 198 carries in his 15 games. And much to the delight of McCaffrey fans, he left the team in the offseason, but much to the dismay of McCaffrey fans, the team replaced him with a more capable, C.J. Anderson, who will almost certainly take a large portion of the early-down work.

McCaffrey's value changes noticeably by scoring style. In standard scoring leagues, he's a mid-RB2 who you can expect 9 to 10 points from each week. In PPR, he's a low-end RB1, RB9 in 2017, with a higher ceiling because of his 7 targets per week. His price is probably best suited as the RB15 and if he improves as a runner and/or increases his share of the carries, he'll likely outperform his ADP.

News From The Past 90 Days
Christian McCaffrey's workload unclear
Panthers expected to rest some starters
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Dec 27, 1:35 pm

Carolina Panthers
“We have some plans for some guys” is all Ron Rivera will share in terms of limiting some starters’ playing time Sunday in order to see how young guys are developing. (Jourdan Rodrigue on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Carolina is expected to rest some starters in the season finale but coach Ron Rivera isn't coughing up the details. The Panthers don't really have a lot of options at running back but it's conceivable Cameron Artis-Payne could lighten Christian McCaffrey's insane 95 percent workload.


Injury Tyler Heinicke placed on IR
Starting QB undecided
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Dec 26, 11:20 am

Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers placed quarterback Taylor Heinicke, their Week 16 starter, on injured reserve on Wednesday morning. Carolina signed quarterback Garrett Gilbert as the corresponding move, in sore need of depth at the position. Heinicke beat out Gilbert for the backup job in training camp this summer. Although he was battling Heinicke for the backup job and knows the Panthers’ offense, the team might decide to start rookie Kyle Allen after a brief but solid outing last week as Heinicke was getting medical attention. The Panthers will not activate Newton against New Orleans this Sunday. (Charlotte Observer)

FFToday's Take: The Panthers will be a shell of themselves in Week 17 with either Allen or Gilbert at quarterback and the likelihood of Christian McCaffrey getting the week off. It will be hard to trust and Panthers skill position players against the Saints.


McCaffrey not expected to play Week 17
Team needs "to be smart" and could evaluate other players
By: Doug Orth | Mon Dec 24, 6:55 pm

Carolina Panthers
Would imagine there will be some discussions this week about sitting Christian McCaffrey and Luke Kuechly in NO. RR won’t go far into that now, but admits “we need to be smart” and it could be a good time “to evaluate” younger players. (Panthers.com - Bill Voth)

FFToday's Take: McCaffrey has already set the record for most catches by running back in a season (106) and is only the third running back ever to rush for more than 1,000 yards and catch 100 balls in the same season. With only draft position to lose with a win in Week 17, expect Carolina to rest McCaffrey in favor of Cameron Artis-Payne.
