Week 1 Rankings

Christian McCaffrey Note

The RB1 comes back to reclaim his throne atop the running back rankings. Did you know there was just two games all last year where he finished with fewer than 19.0 half-PPR points? Crazy, right? He'll start against the Raiders who allowed the eighth-most fantasy points per opportunity last year. They also allowed 205.7 PPR points through the air alone to running backs, which ranked as the fourth-most. There were just five teams in the NFL who allowed more fantasy points through the air to running backs than on the ground. The Raiders were one of them. This matchup appears tailormade for someone like McCaffrey, as most are expecting the Panthers to fall behind and throw the ball. The Raiders are also working with a brand-new group of linebackers, which could lead to some miscommunications. You don't need me to tell you to start McCaffrey as an RB1 every week. If you want to play him in DFS, go right ahead.
