There have been 109 running back performances that have netted 25-plus half-PPR points over the last two years. Despite missing essentially the whole 2020 season, McCaffrey has accounted for 9.2 percent of them. He's somehow managed to score 25-plus points in 10 of his last 19 games, and has scored fewer than 19 fantasy points in just two of them. He's basically posting quarterback numbers as a running back. He should be the No. 1 pick in 2021 drafts.

Christian McCaffrey role remains unchanged for 2021

Joseph Person of The Athletic reports that Carolina Panthers star RB Christian McCaffrey's role remains unchanged despite injury-riddled 2020.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey only appeared in three games during the 2020 NFL season. He dealt with multiple injuries forcing him to miss majority of the year. In the three healthy games, CMC put up 25.4, 20.8, and 27.1 fantasy points. He touched the ball 25.3 times a game and looked as dominant as ever. McCaffrey is still ranked as the RB1 according to ECR, which is amazing since he only played three games. Joe Brady will continue to feed McCaffrey touches, so he has a great shot as being the overall RB1 yet again.
