Christian McCaffrey is one of the best running backs in the league when it comes to fantasy production. He is an accomplished rusher and receiver who is heavily involved in the Panthers offense. A high ankle sprain, shoulder ailment, and quad injury hampered his path in 2020 which limited him to only three games. A hamstring injury which was later re-injured, slowed his return to prominence in 2021. Despite being a well-conditioned athlete, injuries have hampered him in back-to-back seasons. He will be 26 in June and his time as an elite weapon in the league appears to be finite. Still, if McCaffrey can elude injuries he stands to be one of the top fantasy running backs in the league due to his high talent both as a rusher and receiver. At peak, he can accumulate fantasy points that would rival that of two positions. In terms of production scarcity, few can do what he does. If he can manage to be effective as a rusher and receiver, and also score touchdowns, he will find himself at or near the top of the fantasy food chain once again.
