Christian McCaffrey racks up 106 total yards in Week 11

Christian McCaffrey rushed seven times for 39 yards and hauled in all seven of his targets for 67 yards in San Francisco's Week 11 win against Arizona.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey did most of his damage in the first half, as Elijah Mitchell received the bulk of the carries in the second half to help put the Cardinals away. McCaffrey's seven carries accounted for a season-low, though he co-led the team in receptions and finished second in receiving yards. He likely could've been in for a bigger night had the game been closer, but the 49ers have clearly made it a priority to keep him healthy as the season progresses. Mitchell may continue seeing a similar amount of carries, though McCaffrey's strong involvement in the passing game keeps him in the RB1 conversation. A home date with the Saints is on tap for Week 12.

Christian McCaffrey records 77 total yards and a score in Week 10

Christian McCaffrey rushed 14 times for 38 yards and one touchdown in San Francisco's Week 10 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. He additionally caught 4-of-6 targets for 39 yards.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey saw a healthy amount of work once again, and punched in a pivotal fourth quarter touchdown to help the 49ers take their first lead of the night. However, his counterpart Elijah Mitchell returned from his seven-game absence and out-carried him 18-14 for 51 more rushing yards. As a result, Mitchell was more efficient running the ball, as he recorded 66 of his 89 yards in the second half. It's entirely possible that both tailbacks split the workload more frequently the rest of the season, but McCaffrey's heavy involvement in the passing attack should allow him to consistently produce RB1 numbers. He'll look to build off this performance versus the Cardinals for Week 11 in Mexico City.

Christian McCaffrey erupts for 149 yards and three touchdowns in Week 8

Christian McCaffrey rushed 18 times for 94 yards and one touchdown in San Francisco's Week 8 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He additionally caught 8-of-9 targets for 55 yards and one touchdown, to go with a 34-yard passing touchdown.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey became the first player since 2005 to throw, rush, and catch a touchdown in the same game. After seeing just eight carries and two targets last week in his debut as a 49er, the team clearly made a point to get him more actively involved this week, especially with Deebo Samuel sidelined. He was highly efficient running the ball, and even threw a perfect 34-yard touchdown dart to Brandon Aiyuk early in the second frame. McCaffrey will rest up during San Francisco's Week 9 bye, and then take on a leaky Chargers defense for Week 10, where he'll serve as an elite RB1 for fantasy purposes.

Christian McCaffrey goes for 62 total yards in 49ers debut

Christian McCaffrey rushed eight times for 38 yards and hauled in both of his targets for 24 yards in San Francisco's Week 7 defeat to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey showcased his elusiveness in limited work as a newly minted 49er. He wasn't even guaranteed to be active this week due to him not registering a single practice with the team. He likely could have produced a superior performance had the game been closer in the final frame. Regardless, McCaffrey is destined for a major workload in Week 8 against the Rams, where he will serve as an RB1 for fantasy purposes.

Christian McCaffrey active for Week 7

Christian McCaffrey is active and will play for the San Francisco 49ers against the Kansas City Chiefs Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey should be involved, although to what extent is unknown after the mid-week trade from the Carolina Panthers. With a "package of plays" in their gameplan for the all-purpose running back on a short week, fantasy owners should expect some production Sunday. McCaffrey has the ability to break a game open on a single play and should still be started in an intriguing matchup Sunday.
