McCaffrey is expected to be inactive in Week 17 since this game doesn't matter for Carolina and they don't want him hurt going into next year. Adjust your lineup accordingly. 
Andrew Gould

Confused as to why Carolina would keep working McCaffrey into the ground with no playoff stakes? The Panthers may have come around to that thinking, as Ron Rivera suggested he may rest the 22-year-old. He has already collected 1,925 total yards and 13 touchdowns while becoming just the third back to produce 1,000 rushing yards and 100 catches in a season. Even without any Week 17 reps, that's more than even optimistic investors could have hoped for. If he plays, the Saints' top-ranked defense could be more vulnerable while resting starters of their own.After locking down the NFC's top seed, the Saints will start Teddy Bridgewater. If that's the case, Brees will break his own NFL record in completion percentage (74.4) despite tallying his fewest passing yards (3,992) since going to the Big Easy in 2006. Don't reach too high for his age-40 season in 2019 drafts.
