McCaffrey blew up in 2018 and it's got everyone reaching for him as a top-three selection in 2019. It's fair and you shouldn't shy away from the three-down back, but you should know that the Panthers have openly talked about scaling back his workload. He's still likely to finish as a top-five option at the position even if he loses 4-6 touches per game, as he's gamescript-proof and it's not as if Cam Newton is rushing for as many touchdowns as he used to.

Christian McCaffrey not concerned about workload

Christian McCaffrey is not concerned about his workload entering 2019.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey played 75 more snaps than any other running back last season. He played 91.3% of Carolina's offensive snaps. The Panthers reportedly want to lighten his workload this season but currently do not have a running back on the roster with a similar skillset to McCaffrey. Carolina might then draft a RB, but McCaffrey should remain an uber-elite fantasy option this upcoming season.
