Bleacher Report recently released their fantasy football PPR Rankings List and Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey tops it.

It’s never too early to talk about fantasy football, especially when it involves Carolina Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey. Coming off his best season yet in which he was an absolute beast in fantasy football, expectations are even higher that he can even top what he did in 2019 this upcoming season.

Kristopher Knox of Bleacher Report recently released his PPR Rankings List based on the aftermath of the 2020 NFL Draft. They’ll be a few new names to get used to as premier offensive rookies take center stage in 2020 but McCaffrey tops the list of being the best of the best. That’s right ladies and gentlemen, McCaffrey at this point in time holds the No. 1 spot in PPR rankings.

Mostly known as a dual-threat last season, McCaffrey put on quite the show all year long. As a running back, McCaffrey totaled 1,387 yards, 287 rushes, 15 touchdowns, and averaged 4.8 yards per attempt. As a receiving option, he totaled 1,005 yards, 116 receptions, four touchdowns, and averaged 8.7 yards per catch.

With a new contract extension this offseason, expect to see McCaffrey pick up exactly where he left off from in 2020. Not only will he continue being the main offensive threat for the Panthers but McCaffrey could see even more of a workload due to some new faces in the lineup.

Quarterback Cam Newton is gone and Teddy Bridgewater will bring his style of play under center. Of course, they’ll likely be some growing pains as he learns and executes the Panthers’ offensive playbook early on but McCaffrey will still be there when needed. When it comes to his fantasy football value, it’s through the roof as Knox got it right in that there is no running back that comes close to McCaffrey to have on your team.

The amount of points that McCaffrey can bring to a fantasy football team is insanely high as he’ll continue being a top dual-threat. Fantasy football owners can expect a plethora of points just like last season but keep in mind, he’ll easily be one of the more popular picks of 2020. Plan accordingly in case he’s snatched up quickly in fantasy football leagues but if you’re lucky to land him, enjoy all the major success that awaits because he’s just getting started.
