FantasyPros
The Arizona Cardinals are 6th against fantasy running backs and QB Cam Newton is trending in the wrong direction of questionable this week. McCaffrey should still maintain RB1 value.Seattle is 7th against fantasy running backs, Kamara is more of a boom / bust RB2 playing without QB Drew Brees on the road.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
McCaffrey has played every snaps for the Panthers offense this season. He would have had another big performance in Week 2 if his QB found him wide open in the flat instead of continuing to look downfield. Given the workload, he remains a top option every week.Kamara was not utilized by the Saints offense last week, but look for Payton to draw up easy plays for Kamara in the passing game to build up Teddy Bridgewater's confidence and get him in a rhythm against Seattle.
