Jonathan Stewart is still looming, so don't look past it, but McCaffrey is the better talent and even if he doesn't get the lions share of the carries, he may be the best receiver in the draft class. There are so many ways for the rookie to pile up the points that it will happen one way or another.

Christian McCaffrey effective in Carolina win

Carolina Panthers rookie RB Christian McCaffrey carried the ball seven times for 33 yards in a 27-17 victory over the Houston Texans Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey showed power and explosiveness carrying through the middle of the Houston defense for his longest gain of 12 yards. He also gained seven yards displaying his quickness to the outside. McCaffrey was not targeted in the passing game. All signs point towards heavy usage for the talented Stanford product in the coming fantasy season. The lack of targets in the passing game was purely the product of Carolina holding back for the regular season.
