Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
Sidelined for three games, McCaffrey (high-ankle sprain) is eligible to come off the injured reserve list this week, so you'll have to keep an eye on his status. Since McCaffrey was originally expected to miss a minimum of four weeks, he's considered a long shot to suit up for Week 6. We'll update McCaffrey's status later in the week when it's warranted.

Season Projections
If you are concerned that McCaffrey's workload from 2019 isn't sustainable, the Panthers gave us $64 million reasons to believe it is and didn't bring in anyone else of consequence to steal touches from him. Specifically, note his role in the passing game. He topped 20 carries in a game just twice in the team's final eight games, but had a jaw dropping 90 targets (74 receptions, 682 yards) as a receiver. Given what's happened to the Panthers defense over the last few months (only four returning starters, featuring the retirement of Luke Kuechly) there's reason to believe that more receiving will be in his future. An investment can't get much safer than McCaffrey at running back to open your draft.

Rushing: 625 Yards, 8 TD.
Receiving: 57 Receptions, 463 Yards, 4 TD.
