  • Christian McCaffrey Will Not Play In Thursday's Game

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) will not be taken off Injured Reserve and activated for Thursday's game against the Atlanta Falcons. McCaffrey returned to practice this week, but the short week probably prevented him from getting back up to speed and ready for game action. Mike Davis can be started by fantasy owners with confidence and should flourish in a great matchup against the Falcons. McCaffrey, meanwhile, should be considered likely to make his return in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Christian McCaffrey Won't Practice Tuesday

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle), who has been designated to return from Injured Reserve, is wearing a red jersey again on Tuesday, which means he won't take part in practice. With the Panthers playing on Thursday night against the Falcons, it increases the likelihood that McCaffrey won't be available. The 24-year-old All-Pro will be a long shot to play in Week 8 against Atlanta, so his fantasy managers will likely need to wait one more week to make his return against the Chiefs. With McCaffrey likely out for one more week, Mike Davis will have one more week of RB1 upside for those that scooped him off the waiver wire when McCaffrey went down in Week 2.

  • Christian McCaffrey Looking Unlikely For Week 8

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) appears to be a long-shot to play in Thursday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, though he hasn't been ruled out yet. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, McCaffrey is pushing to play in the game and will try to make as much progress as he can in practice this week. McCaffrey has been sidelined since Week 2 with a high ankle sprain. In his absence, Mike Davis has handled a heavy workload for the Panthers and it appears likely that Davis will have another opportunity for fantasy stardom in Week 8 if McCaffrey is indeed out again.

  • Christian McCaffrey Not Expected To Play In Week 7

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) isn't expected to play in Week 7 against the Saints, which will be the fifth game he's missed since suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 2, according to sources. The Panthers are being cautious with their star running back, but McCaffrey is getting closer to a return and he could be back next Thursday against the Falcons. Carolina still needs to activate McCaffrey from Injured Reserve, and from there fantasy managers can monitor his practice status. Continue to be patient with the All-Pro running back, who was the No. 1 overall pick in the majority of fantasy leagues. Mike Davis continues to see a heavy workload in the absence of McCaffrey, and he'll remain in RB1 territory this Sunday against the Saints.

  • Christian McCaffrey Likely Out Until Week 8

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) will likely be out until Week 8. ESPN's David Newton reports that the All-Pro running back wasn't activated off of injured reserve this week and that he's unlikely to play in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints. Week 6 will be McCaffrey's fourth game missed- this would put him right in his original timeline of 4-6 weeks if he suits up against Atlanta in Week 8. Mike Davis will be a locked-and-loaded RB1 for as long as McCaffrey is out.
