While Christian McCaffrey had a massive game last week against New Orleans, it could've been even more impressive than Derrick Henry's performance. CMC was brought down at the one or two yard line on multiple occasions last week, which if he was just a couple feet further would've meant a ridiculous outing. At this point, there's no reason we should doubt McCaffrey finishing the season as the No. 1 fantasy football option again. He's seeing a workload like no other RB in the league and he's reminding everyone why he's truly one of - if not the - best RB in the entire NFL. Against the Houston Texans that saw Nick Chubb rumble for 95 yards and a score on them last week, CMC's back in the RB1 spot in my weekly rankings.
