Apparently the Panthers are planning to feed McCaffrey quite a bit more this season, extending his upside further. We already considered him to be among the safest backs, seeing that his receiving production alone would make him startable. There are few more reliable players from week to week at the position.

Christian McCaffrey to get 200 carries?

ESPN staff writer David Newton is reporting that Christian McCaffrey is preparing for a bigger workload this season and that head coach Ron Rivera is on-board with it.

Fantasy Impact

Rivera has done a complete 180 since last year when they gave McCaffrey 13 carries in Week 1, and afterwards they said that he wasn't meant to handle the 18 total touches he got in that game. After that, McCaffrey had just two games with more than nine carries, so it's hard to see them giving him the average of 12.5 carries per game it would take to get to the 200-carry mark. The addition of C.J. Anderson further complicates the matter, as Anderson has shown to be a great in-between the tackles runner, but that staying healthy was always the issue. Still, Rivera's comment to Newton was, "Everybody forgets when he was in college he ran between the tackles more than anybody and he touched the ball more than anybody. So I don't see why not." Those are definitely positive signs for his outlook, so don't think about moving him down your draft boards with the signing of Anderson. He's got the looks of a high-end RB2 in standard leagues, and a low-end RB1 in PPR formats.
