  • Christian McCaffrey, D.J. Moore Will Sit Out Preseason Opener

    The Carolina Panthers made waves when they announced Baker Mayfield as the team's starting quarterback for Saturday's preseason opener against Washington, and then did so again when it was announced Christian McCaffrey and D.J. Moore would be inactive for the contest. McCaffrey has been bothered by myriad injuries over the past few seasons, lending to the Panthers attempting to keep him fresh heading into Week 1 of the regular season. Moore's absence is also likely a byproduct of Carolina attempting to keep key playmakers healthy for the season ahead, even though fewer reps alongside Mayfield may make some fantasy managers trepidatious about the wideout's ceiling entering 2022. The duo's next chance to suit up comes Friday vs. the Patriots.

  • 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.

  • Christian McCaffrey To Be Held Out Of Preseason Games

    Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that running back Christian McCaffrey will be held out of all preseason games again this year, and the team is looking into taking a different approach with him during practices. It's not surprising after CMC has become the most injury prone running back in the league the last two years. And when he's healthy, he's arguably the most valuable real-life and fantasy back in the NFL. The 25-year-old had over 1,000 yards rushing and receiving while adding 19 total touchdowns in 2019, but he's playing in just 10 games combined the last two years due to various injuries. The Panthers will do everything in their power to keep him on the field, which should make fantasy managers a bit more comfortable taking him as an elite RB1.
