Christian McCaffrey is arguably the top running back in the league in terms of 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. At the end of the season the Panthers likely held him out to err on the side of caution. When healthy he is an extremely productive piece of the Panthers offense. His presence should elevate the Panthers red zone offense that finished 28th in 2020. McCaffrey gained over 370 yards with 17 receptions and six touchdowns in the three games he played in last season. That pace over a full season would've accumulated 481 PPR fantasy points, which would've topped the #1 ranked running back, Alvin Kamara, by 104 points. A bounce-back year to league dominance is expected.
