Christian McCaffrey not concerned about workload

Christian McCaffrey is not concerned about his workload entering 2019.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey played 75 more snaps than any other running back last season. He played 91.3% of Carolina's offensive snaps. The Panthers reportedly want to lighten his workload this season but currently do not have a running back on the roster with a similar skillset to McCaffrey. Carolina might then draft a RB, but McCaffrey should remain an uber-elite fantasy option this upcoming season.

Christian McCaffrey to have lighter workload?

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says the team wants to lighten Christian McCaffrey's workload in 2019.

Fantasy Impact

Before anyone starts panicking Rivera pointed more to "extraneous snaps" rather than cutting back touches. McCaffrey did so much last season that he is almost guaranteed to have a slightly smaller workload next year, but he remains in play as the first overall pick in fantasy drafts. He's that talented.

Christian McCaffrey gets five touches in Week 17

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed four times for 18 yards and caught his only target for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey played early but was taken out as the game progressed. With nothing to play for, the Panthers were smart to take McCaffrey out of the game to ensure he doesn't get injured and setback his offseason.

Christian McCaffrey sets NFL record in Week 16 loss

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 21 times for 101 yards and caught 12-of-13 targets for 77 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to Atlanta.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey broke Matt Forte's record for most receptions by a running back in a single season with his 12 Week 16 grabs. And while he didn't score, he still put up 178 total yards on his 33 touches. CMC will likely dominate touches again in the season finale at New Orleans.

Christian McCaffrey misses practice Thursday

Christian McCaffrey missed practice Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

It's not clear what issue he's dealing with, but there's speculation that this is simply rest for the RB. With Cam Newton sidelined for the year, McCaffrey will continue to carry this team on the ground and through the air. Despite the downgrade at QB, he'll continue to be a solid RB1.
