We were wrong! No one has seen their fantasy value rise more over two weeks of Preseason action than Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey. After (surprisingly) receiving and executing a 2-yard TD plunge during Preseason Week 1, McCaffrey turned a 2nd-and-1 blast up the gut into a 70 yard TD burst in Week 2. This flashed a gear we rarely saw in 2017, with McCaffrey’s longest regular season run (40 yards) and reception (37) far below. He then followed that up with a 14 touch performance in the first half of Week 3. Between the added volume, power, and burst, McCaffrey enters 2018 as a potential “Fantasy Cheatcode.”
Not a bad turnaround for someone I was calling “Overpriced” in our Preseason Kickoff Guide just two weeks ago. While I try to stick to my guns, ignoring glaring evidence that I was wrong would be foolish. This is even easier to do when I’ve always loved McCaffrey’s “Individual Talent.” I simply didn’t believe the “Volume” would be there to return his value.
McCaffrey could threaten for Top-5 RB status if he receives this volume, and, more importantly, holds up.
Do you forgive us?! Sound off below.
