As the 2020 fantasy football season nears, it's time to examine players who could make or break your fantasy team. Here's a look at Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey and his fantasy outlook for the season ahead.
McCaffrey didn’t just dominate his position last season. He delivered the most fantasy points we’ve seen from a running back since LaDainian Tomlinson set the NFL touchdown record in 2006. New coach Matt Rhule called McCaffrey “a centerpiece player you can build a team around” to the Charlotte Observer in April. McCaffrey logged 48 more touches than anyone else last year, so there’s room for him to come down and still lead.
