  • Christian McCaffrey "Not As Sturdy" As Saquon

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey has plenty of hype entering the 2020 campaign and should continue to be the No. 1 fantasy selection in the majority of fantasy drafts heading into September. However, according to a poll conducted by ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, more than 50 percent of league executives view Saquon Barkley as the top back in the league. As claimed by one anonymous AFC executive, McCaffrey is "not as sturdy as Saquon. Not the same speed-and-power combo." While this declaration may not hinder fantasy managers from taking McCaffrey first overall in drafts, it could give many something to think about.

  • Christian McCaffrey Ranked As Best Back

    Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey was recently ranked as the 10th-best player in the league by Pro Football Focus. While his place on the list could be debated by many, fantasy managers will take comfort that the site still has him ranked as the most efficient back in the league. The 24-year-old was dominant in 2019, finishing with 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns on the rushing end of things, while also adding 116 catches for 1,005 yards and four more scores as a receiver. He will likely remain the No. 1 fantasy option heading into the 2020 campaign, barring injury.
