PRESEASON RECAP: Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed five times for 92 yards and a touchdown while catching 4-of-5 targets for 28 yards in Friday’s preseason game versus the Dolphins.
If there’s one thing that I’ve taken away from McCaffrey in the preseason, it’s that he’s going to be used a ton in Carolina.
I have my doubts about his ability to handle 20 touches a game for 16 games, but it looks like the Panthers are going to use him that much.
He had every backfield touch until the final drive of the first half. His best touch came early in the game when he took a 71 yard carry to the house. He showed great vision, burst, and breakaway speed on that big play.
McCaffrey is creeping up my rankings in PPR leagues especially. His usage is looking like it’s going to be gigantic. If he can sustain that usage with some solid efficiency, he could be a league winner.
