  • Christian McCaffrey's Stock Is Rising

    Although the Carolina Panthers are being cautious with running back Christian McCaffrey at training camp this summer after a rash of injuries the last two seasons, he's not exactly taking it easy either. Head coach Matt Rhule said McCaffrey won't practice more than two days in a row in full pads, but he's still getting plenty of work in as he looks to bounce back in 2022. CMC won't play in preseason games, and there's a plan to be smarter with him during the regular season as well, but it doesn't include putting him in bubble wrap. "Christian's a dominant football player. He plays a high-contact, high-percent-of-injury position. We're going to put him out there and play him," Rhule said. "I think we're all thinking about Christian one way only, and that's attack."

  • Christian McCaffrey To Have Normal Training Camp

    Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that he doesn't expect many changes with running back Christian McCaffrey's (ankle) preseason preparation. McCaffrey isn't expected to play at all in the preseason after playing in just 10 total games over the last two seasons due to injuries. But in his last healthy season in 2019, CMC went off for 1,387 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns while adding 116 catches for 1,005 yards and four more TDs in 16 games. Although he isn't in play for the first overall fantasy selection anymore, he should still be considered a top-five fantasy back for his upside alone, even in a Panthers offense with questions at quarterback. The good news is that the 26-year-old didn't need offseason surgery on his injured ankle.
