The Carolina Panthers placed running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) on Injured Reserve on Monday and he will miss the rest of the season. Initial X-rays on McCaffrey came back negative, according to head coach Matt Rhule, but something else must have come up during additional tests on Monday after he tweaked his ankle in the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins. CMC was seen wearing a walking boot on his left foot after the game. The 25-year-old has been an absolute bust the last two years due to injuries and missed five more weeks this season due to injuries. McCaffrey will finish with 99 carries for 442 yards and one touchdown while catching 37 of 41 targets for 343 yards and a touchdown in seven games in 2021. Rookie Chuba Hubbard becomes a priority waiver-wire addition this week, as he'll see the majority of backfield work the rest of the way while sharing touches with Ameer Abdullah.
Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that initial X-rays on running back Christian McCaffrey's ankle came back negative, but he's going for more medical tests on Monday. McCaffrey tweaked his ankle in the first half of the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins and left the game in a walking boot on his left foot. Initial indications are that this isn't a serious injury, and with the Panthers on bye in Week 13, CMC may not even miss any game action. Carolina doesn't play again until Dec. 2 at home against the Atlanta Falcons. The 25-year-old had only 10 carries for the second straight week and gained only 35 yards on the ground against Miami, failing to reel in his only target through the air. If McCaffrey does need to miss any time coming off the bye week, rookie Chuba Hubbard would be in line to handle most of the backfield work.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 10 carries for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. The RB rolled his ankle in the first half of the contest which led to him playing less afterward. McCaffrey has been dealing with injuries all throughout the season and this has affected his availability for games and production in a couple of contests he has played. Managers should monitor the 25-year-old's status going forward but Carolina luckily doesn't have another game until Week 14, meaning the RB has time to rest and recover.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) rolled his ankle and later appeared in a walking boot. For the past two years, McCaffrey has dealt with several lower-body injuries and this boot is obviously not a good sign. It's still unforeseen as to how long McCaffrey's absence will be (if any at all), but fantasy owners should be concerned. His backup Chuba Hubbard must be picked up in all leagues once waivers run and would be a decent start if McCaffrey misses time. In Dynasty leagues, at this point, McCaffrey appears deserving of the "injury-prone" tag and his value has drastically decreased. If he returns and has a nice game, managers should consider selling high.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is a solid RB1 against Miami. The RB has accumulated at least 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards in the last three games and always has a high chance to get over 100 yards of scrimmage in any contest given his large role. Miami is somewhat stingy to fantasy backs, but McCaffrey's rich volume still makes him an elite play.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 10 rushes for 59 yards and seven receptions for 60 yards and a score on eight targets in Sunday's loss to Washington. McCaffrey once again stuffed the stat sheet and continues to be a dominant force on this offense. The RB has at least 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards in the last three games and he remains in the RB1 tier going forward.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is an RB1 option against Washington in Week 11. McCaffrey dealt with a minor setback to his hamstring last week during the game against Arizona, but luckily it seems it hasn't bothered him enough to affect his status for Week 11. The RB looked sharp last week when he was in the game, posting 13 carries for 95 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards on 10 targets. As the focal point of this offense, McCaffrey will see the volume and he's one of the best plays of the week against a Washington squad that's average against fantasy RBs.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey was not on the team's Week 11 injury report and was able to get in a full practice on Wednesday. Yeah, we had to do a double take, too. It looked like his troublesome hamstring was giving him issues in the Week 10 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but the fact that McCaffrey isn't on the injury report at all is excellent news heading into a Week 11 date with the Washington Football Team. In two games since returning from an extended absence, CMC has 27 carries for 147 yards and 14 catches on 15 targets for 120 yards. Quarterback Cam Newton could take away valuable goal-line touches if he takes over the starting QB job this weekend, but McCaffrey will still be a must-start, high-end RB1.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 13 carries for 95 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's win over Arizona. McCaffrey produced well on Sunday but it's worth noting his hamstring acted up in the game and he wasn't much of a factor in the second half. The RB missed time this season already due to a hamstring injury, so the only hope is he didn't reaggravate the injury. It's worth monitoring the RB's status this week as Chuba Hubbard could see more playing time once again if McCaffrey can't play in a game.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is a solid start in Week 10 given the team will be starting an inexperienced QB in P.J. Walker. The expectation is the back will shoulder most of the offensive workload. The 25-year-old returned last week after missing time due to a hamstring injury sustained in Week 3. He posted 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards. Though Arizona is stingy against fantasy backs, McCaffrey's rich workload keeps him in the RB1 tier.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, who made his return from a hamstring injury in Week 9, wasn't on the injury report all week and won't carry an injury designation into the Week 10 contest against the Arizona Cardinals. It was uncertain how much of a role CMC would have in his first game action since Week 3, but he ended up playing just under half of the offensive snaps, with rookie Chuba Hubbard on the field 16.9% of the time. McCaffrey went over 100 yards from scrimmage on 14 carries and four receptions on five targets. It was an encouraging first game back, and he could be relied on even more this Sunday with P.J. Walker starting at quarterback for the injured Sam Darnold (shoulder). We shouldn't have to say this, but McCaffrey is a must-start RB1.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey carried the ball 14 times for 52 rushing yards, adding 54 receiving yards on four catches in Sunday's loss to the Patriots. McCaffrey made it through his pre-game workout and the contest unscathed, looking good in his return to the field, as he was able to still get his against a Bill Belichick defense that makes a living against taking away its opponent's best player. The dynamic runner has missed much of the season but has exceeded the 100-yard scrimmage mark in three of four games played. McCaffrey saw a season-low 18 touches, but that's plenty for fantasy managers, as it should keep him fresher as the season goes along. He'll be an elite RB1 for a Week 10 matchup with a Cardinals defense that has struggled to contain pass-catchers out of the backfield.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), who was activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday, is officially active in Week 9 against the New England Patriots. McCaffrey is returning to the field for the first time since Week 3, but there have been reports that he will be on a snap count in his return. The 25-year-old running back has been a must-start RB1 each and every week he's been active, but injuries the last two seasons have cast doubt on his fantasy value in his return this week. With a chance that the Panthers will use him sparingly alongside rookie Chuba Hubbard on Sunday, we wouldn't blame fantasy managers for being skeptical this week. If you have other solid options, CMC might best be used as a flex play in his return in Week 9.
The Carolina Panthers activated running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) from Injured Reserve on Saturday with hopes that he'll play in Week 9 against the New England Patriots. McCaffrey will go through a pre-game workout just to be sure. It's great news that McCaffrey is coming off IR after being out since Week 3, but now the question becomes: How much does he play if the Panthers are comfortable throwing him out there this weekend? McCaffrey just hasn't been able to stay healthy the last two seasons, so it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see them limit his snaps on Sunday against the Patriots, which doesn't necessarily make him a must-start if he's active. Rookie Chuba Hubbard has done a nice job filling in with McCaffrey injured, and he figures to see most of the backfield work as the Panthers ease McCaffrey back in.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), who is officially listed as questionable, has a chance to play in Sunday's game against New England. McCaffrey is not yet on the active roster -- the team has until 4 p.m. on Saturday to activate him -- but head coach Matt Rhule is optimistic that the star halfback will see his first game action since Week 3. The All-Pro runner will be on a snap count if active, per Rhule, a wise approach given the injuries he's dealt with these last two years. McCaffrey and rookie Chuba Hubbard could share the backfield duties, or Hubbard could be tasked with the lead role once again. Fantasy managers should stay tuned on Saturday. McCaffrey would be a strong start, albeit with more risk than usual, against a Patriots defense that has surrendered the second-most receiving yards to backs over the last four weeks.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) was on the practice field Thursday. McCaffrey was reportedly "very limited" during Wednesday's practice, and he likely would have carried the same designation on Thursday's report, as he was limited to riding a bike and stretching. Head coach Matt Rhule had said that he's "hopeful" for the star halfback to play this week- but seeing as he has yet to be activated off injured reserve, Week 10 seems like a more likely timetable for his return. McCaffrey has endured another disappointing, injury-filled season- but it finally seems like his return is around the corner. The Panthers may seriously consider lessening McCaffrey's workload- though he would remain an elite RB1 given how efficient he is with the touches he sees.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) was at practice with the team on Wednesday, but head coach Matt Rhule referred to the star as "very limited" in regards to what he was able to do. Since the Panthers have 21 days to activate him after starting his clock in his return from the Injured Reserve, it appears unlikely that the franchise superstar will play this week against the New England Patriots. That would mean another week of Chuba Hubbard against a solid Patriots defense. With P.J. Walker likely to be at quarterback and the Panthers seeming to not want to use Hubbard in obvious passing downs, he remains a low-end RB2 or flex play in what could prove to be a touchdown-dependent matchup.
The Carolina Panthers designated running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) to return from Injured Reserve on Wednesday, meaning the team now has 21 days to officially activate him from IR. McCaffrey landed on IR in Week 6 after he aggravated a hamstring injury that he initially suffered in Week 3. The 25-year-old will return to practice this week, but he's not a lock to return in Week 9 against the New England Patriots just yet. Fantasy managers would obviously love to have CMC back in the fold as a do-it-all RB1, but the Panthers will likely be extra cautious after he's missed so much time due to injuries the last two years. Rookie Chuba Hubbard, who has been a volume-based RB2 in McCaffrey's absence, will return to backup duties once McCaffrey is ready to return.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) could once again be nearing a return to the field, potentially as soon as Week 9 vs. New England, per Panthers head coach Matt Rhule. "If it's not this week, hopefully it's next week," Rhule said, keeping the options open for the team to hold their star back out until Week 10 against the Cardinals, or even further if all goes against plan. Chuba Hubbard has served as McCaffrey's primary replacement out of the backfield, but there are single-digit players in the league that can put up comparable production to No. 22 when healthy. Check back throughout the week as it appears that fantasy managers are in for more McCaffrey practice updates, as he will be an obvious must-start in all formats if he is cleared, along with retaining his massive DFS upside.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) didn't travel with the team in Week 8 against the Atlanta Falcons, but he's on track to come off Injured Reserve for the Week 9 contest against the New England Patriots. The Panthers should know more about McCaffrey's status when they begin their practice preparations for the week next Wednesday. Based on CMC's injuries dating back to last year, fantasy managers shouldn't get their hopes up too soon. And there's also the question of whether Carolina would limit McCaffrey's snaps in his first game back. Rookie Chuba Hubbard has been filling in for the injured McCaffrey as the team's lead back for the last four games and will do so again this Sunday against Atlanta.
The Carolina Panthers haven't given up hope of trading for Houston Texans Pro Bowl quarterback Deshaun Watson, according to several sources who have been in close contact with him. It remains a priority for the franchise ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. The two sides haven't agreed on parameters for a deal, however, and Houston's asking price -- five or six players, including three-first round picks -- remains too high for Carolina's liking. But that could change before Tuesday, and the Panthers are willing to part with three high picks and All-Pro running back Christian McCaffrey, according to league sources. The Panthers have more proven young talent than the Dolphins, and Panthers executive Steve Drummond is close with Texans top exec Jack Easterby. Things could heat up as we approach Tuesday. Stay tuned.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) was placed on the Injured Reserve Saturday, sidelining him for the next three weeks. McCaffrey was able to practice in a limited fashion for four straight sessions spanning from last week to the beginning of this week but was downgraded to a non-participant on Thursday and Friday, suggesting a setback likely occurred at practice. It's an eerily similar situation to last year for the All-Pro running back, who missed a total of 13 games due to a variety of injuries, with the team constantly deeming him "hopeful" to suit up but later ruling him out. It's fair to question if this move is something that should have happened a few weeks ago, given McCaffrey's recent injury history. The Panthers may have to seriously consider reducing the workload of their $64 million star halfback when he returns to preserve his body. In the meantime, Chuba Hubbard, coming off his first career 100-yard game, will be an every-week starter at running back for those lucky enough to scoop him up off waivers.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) has officially been ruled out for Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. McCaffrey missed practice on Thursday and Friday, sealing his fate for a third straight missed game. Things are starting to look awfully similar to his disappointing 2020 season when he missed the majority of the year due to injuries. The Panthers are understandably playing things extra cautiously, but CMC is now developing a reputation of being a really slow healer. Rookie Chuba Hubbard will operate as the team's lead back yet again this Sunday in a good matchup against the Vikings. The fourth-rounder has 158 rushing yards on 37 attempts (4.27 yards per carry) the last two weeks with McCaffrey sidelined. Hubbard will be in play with RB2 upside again in Week 6.
It looks likely that Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is set to miss his third straight game in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings. According to the Panthers, McCaffrey is not at practice on Friday for the second straight day. The writing was on the wall for CMC to miss another game after he missed practice on Thursday after being limited Wednesday and last week. The 25-year-old star running back isn't quite ready to return, but the Panthers are likely being extremely cautious after McCaffrey missed most of last season with injuries. Rookie Chuba Hubbard has yet to score a touchdown in CMC's absence, but he's accumulated 158 rushing yards and 47 receiving yards in the last two games as Carolina's primary back. He'll once again have RB2 upside against Minnesota with McCaffrey set to miss another contest.
Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (hamstring) is trending in the wrong direction ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings. McCaffrey was limited on Wednesday but was downgraded to a non-participant Thursday- suggesting that he may have suffered some sort of setback at practice. The star runner hasn't officially been deemed doubtful, but fantasy managers should still begin to prepare for Week 6 as if they'll be without McCaffrey. Chuba Hubbard will be a viable RB2 if McCaffrey is out once again. Hubbard just posted his first career 100-yard game and will take on a Vikings defense that has allowed the sixth-most rushing yards this season.

“The Atlanta Falcons are not expected to trade quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason, according to sources. “The Falcons have not had any trade conversations about Ryan or their star wide receiver Julio Jones. And every expectation is both players are going to be on the roster in 2021,” NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said. New head coach Arthur Smith plans to run a similar offense to the one Kyle Shanahan used when Ryan won MVP in 2016. Atlanta would be on the hook for more than $44 million in dead money in 2021 if they traded Ryan before June 1. Atlanta may decide to take Ryan’s heir-apparent at No. 4 overall in the draft, but the 35-year-old signal-caller is expected to stay put for at least another season. Ryan and Jones got it going to end the regular season and could be in line for bounce-back campaigns under Smith in 2021. Consider Ryan a midrange QB1 heading into next season.”
