Christian McCaffrey Week 3 Outlook - Giants at 49ers

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 21st 2023, 8:57am EDT

Well, so much for lightening McCaffrey's load this season. McCaffrey has played at least 85% of the snaps in each game, with 100% of the snaps in Week 2. He's averaged 24 touches and 152 total yards so far, putting an exclamation point on his status as the best running back in the NFL. McCaffrey has been in vintage form so far, ranking 13th in missed tackles forced per attempt and third in yards after contact per attempt. He's having a ball running behind an offensive line that ranks ninth-best in yards before contact per attempt. McCaffrey should have no problems posting another strong outing against a run defense that's 17th in stuff rate, 14th in missed tackles allowed per attempt, and 15th in yards after contact per attempt allowed. Week 3 Positional Value: Top Shelf RB1
