Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Welcome back, McCaffrey! We've missed you immensely! CMC got right back to business last week and totaled 30 touches in his first game action back from injury. He was stellar and there's very little to analyze here up against the Saints defense that just shut down Jones and the Packers rushing attack. McCaffrey's the RB1 in fantasy rankings every single week that he's healthy.Dalvin Cook didn't have as dominant of a performance in week one as many were expecting, but he still finished as a top-10 RB on the back of pure volume. He logged 26 total touches in week one, which is exactly what fantasy managers want to see from their RB1. This Cardinals defense kept Derrick Henry in check last week, so it could be tough sledding for Cook on the ground again this week, but he'll see too much volume to move him outside of the top-5 in our RB rankings.
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
After missing 13 games due to injury last year, McCaffrey exploded out of the gates with 21 carries for 98 yards and nine receptions for 89 yards. You have to love that. Panthers head coach Matt Rhule and offensive coordinator Joe Brady had no compunction about giving McCaffrey 30 touches in his first game back. Please let this guy stay healthy so we can see what kind of cartoon numbers he can produce.It's a little surprising Cook didn't have a better game against a lightly regarded Bengals defense. He ran 20 times for 61 yards and a touchdown. That's only 3.1 yards per carry, and Cook wouldn't have had the touchdown if the officials hadn't taken away an obvious TD from Justin Jefferson. Cook was also targeted seven times and had six catches for 43 yards. The Arizona defense managed to keep Derrick Henry in check last week, so it will be interesting to see how they fare against another premier back.
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
The Saints stifled Green Bay last week, but CMC is an easy top-5 play regardless of opponent. His pass-catching abilities are unrivaled. Don't overthink this one.Was Week 1 just a fluke, or do the Cards have an elite defense waiting out in the desert for Cook and Co? I'll bet the latter, as this was an up-and-coming defense last season before adding J.J. Watt in the offseason.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
McCaffrey had 30 touches and 187 yards from scrimmage in the season opener. He sees too many touches and has too much talent to be anything but the top-ranked fantasy running back each week, regardless of matchup.The Cardinals were very good against Derrick Henry, but Cook had 26 touches and 104 yards from scrimmage and he scored a touchdown against the Bengals. Cook should be an elite RB1 on the road this week.
