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
Injury Ian Thomas to fill void of Greg Olsen?
Still waiting on official diagnosis on Olsen
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Sep 10, 11:30 am

Carolina Panthers
The downside of this Week 1 victory is that the Panthers likely will have to replace Greg Olsen (foot) for an extended period of time. First up will be rookie Ian Thomas, a fourth-round pick out of Indiana, and then there's former Canisius College basketball player Chris Manhertz, who came to Carolina two years ago as a project. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Manhertz profiles more as a blocker so Thomas has a chance at fantasy relevance as long as Olsen remains sidelined. The tight end position is a focal point of the Panthers offense but it remains to be seen how much that will change with Olsen out. Last year, the passing game ran through Devin Funchess and Christian McCaffrey during the 9 games missed by Olsen.
