Carolina parted ways with running back C.J. Anderson and decided to go all in on Christian McCaffrey being the running back. He hasn’t disappointed, continuing to set franchise records in both receiving and rushing yards for the Panthers this season.
On pace for over 1,000 rushing yards and nearly 900 receiving, McCaffrey may get even more opportunities with the recent loss of tight end Greg Olsen. The Panthers dynamic running back has fit well into Turner’s system as they continue finding ways to keep him involved.
Consistent all year long, the one concern here is depth at the position and an ability of someone else to fill a similar role should McCaffrey ever not be available.
