Week 5 Rankings

Christian McCaffrey Note

McCaffrey is the RB5 in fantasy points per game quietly. With the Panthers' stink permeating the air weekly, his continued bell-cow role and prowess is getting lost in translation. McCaffrey is first in opportunity share and fifth in weight opportunity averaging 19.3 touches and 102 total yards. He's ninth in yards per route run, first in target share (19.6%), 12th in breakaway runs, and fifth in yards created. Now that we have discussed how awesome McCaffrey is, we can discuss how great the 49ers' defense is. San Francisco is a frightening matchup for running backs with the second-lowest rush success rate, the third-lowest explosive run rate, and a top-five ranking in DVOA against receiving backs. McCaffrey is an every-week RB1, but it's good to keep your expectations in check this week.
