  • Christian McCaffrey A Must-Start RB1

    San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey faces a New Orleans Saints defense that has allowed the 14th-most points to opposing fantasy RBs. While the Saints have allowed the eighth-most rushing yards to RBs, they have only allowed the eighth-fewest receiving yards. That is not ideal for CMC, as he thrives on receptions. The 26-year-old has been targeted six or more times in each of the past three games. Despite the imperfect nature of the matchup, McCaffrey is a weekly must-start in fantasy.

  • Christian McCaffrey Gains 106 Scrimmage Yards In Win

    San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey carried the ball seven times and caught seven passes to combine for 106 scrimmage yards in the Niners' 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football. The 26-year-old gained 39 yards on the ground on seven carries and gained 67 yards through the air. He tied Brandon Aiyuk for the team lead in routes run. McCaffrey has been targeted 22 times in his past three games as the lead-back in San Francisco, but his rushing volume has been trending downward since Week 8. Without having scored a touchdown, McCaffrey finishes Week 11 as the RB11. He'll have a shot to find the end zone in Week 12 when the Niners host the New Orleans Saints.

  • Christian McCaffrey An RB1 In Week 11

    San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey faces the Arizona Cardinals, who boast a top 10 rushing defense, in Week 11. Arizona is allowing the ninth-fewest rushing yards per game and the twelfth-fewest per carry, while ranking as the fifth-best rush defense in PFF's grades. The Cardinals have been less successful at stopping the pass, however, and they have allowed the ninth-most receiving yards to opposing RBs. McCaffrey thrives in the passing game. He has averaged 4.7 receptions and 39.3 yards in the past three games since he joined the 49ers. The 26-year-old is a stud, and he is a must-start every game.

  • Christian McCaffrey Struggles On The Ground

    San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey had a hard time finding room to run during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers. He rushed 14 times for 38 yards and one touchdown in the win. McCaffrey did more damage in the receiving game with four receptions on six targets for 39 yards. Surprisingly, Elijah Mitchell returned from the injured reserve and split the carries in the backfield with McCaffrey. It's uncertain if that trend will continue or if it was just because Mitchell was rushing so well on Sunday. Regardless, McCaffrey should remain a RB1 against the Arizona Cardinals next week.
