McCaffrey is a bit of a wild card for fantasy, but all signs point to him being used extensively this season in the passing game as well as enough rushing attempts to boost up those overall numbers.

Christian McCaffrey could make 'biggest impact' of Panthers' rookies

Carolina Panthers beat writer David Newton believes running back Christian McCaffrey "will have the biggest impact" of the team's 2017 rookie class.

Fantasy Impact

McCaffrey has a unique skill set which should keep him on the field on all downs. He can line up as a running back, on the outside or in the slot due to his versatility as a rusher and as a receiver, which could make him a matchup nightmare for opposing defenders. Because of his hype, McCaffrey will likely be targeted early in fantasy drafts. However, I wouldn't pull the trigger if Leonard Fournette or Dalvin Cook are still available. McCaffrey is a high-risk, high-reward option for the 2017 fantasy football campaign.
