Fantasy Football Player Notes

2022 Half PPR Draft Rankings

Christian McCaffrey Note

The injury concerns for Christian McCaffrey are justified. Since 2020 he's dealt with an ankle sprain, thigh injury, AC joint sprain, and high ankle sprain, missing 18 games. When he's on the field, though, he's still a top-three running back. Last season in the five games he played at least 48% of the snaps, he averaged 20.1 (0.5 PPR) fantasy points per game. This would have placed him as the RB3 in weekly fantasy scoring behind only Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry.

D'Onta Foreman Note

D'Onta Foreman performed well last season as Tennessee's garage sale version of Derrick Henry. In Weeks 12-18, he turned 18.3 rushing attempts per game into 80.3 rushing yards per contest. While he was outside the top 20 in yards created per touch and yards per touch, he was still superior to Chuba Hubbard in both of these metrics. I'll peg him as the early favorite to be Christian McCaffrey's understudy as Hubbard was underwhelming at every turn in 2021.

Chuba Hubbard Note

Chuba Hubbard started with solid showings in his attempt to replace Christian McCaffrey's production last season after he was sidelined in Week 3. Hubbard averaged 20.4 touches and 83.4 total yards per game over the next five weeks as the RB36, RB16, RB22, RB29, and RB20. Hubbard's underlying metrics weren't so pretty as he finished the season 45th in juke rate and 41st in yards created per touch. By the end of the season, the team worked in multiple backs with Hubbard. Monitor camp reports for Hubbard's standing in this backfield in 2022, but I'm currently projecting D'Onta Foreman to be McCaffrey's primary backup.
