Christian McCaffrey – Carolina Panthers RB

2021 Projected Rushing Stats

  • 240 rushing attempts
  • 1,175 rushing yards
  • 4.9 yards-per-carry
  • 10 rushing touchdowns

2021 Projected Receiving Stats

  • 85 receptions
  • 700 receiving yards
  • 4 receiving touchdowns

Everyone knows just how dominant Christian McCaffrey has been during his career when he can stay healthy. I fully expect him to continue with this trend and once again be the centerpiece for the Carolina Panthers’ offense throughout this season.

The Panthers have the best wide receiver group they’ve had in a while, so I fully expect McCaffrey to get the ball less in 2021.

This is great for Mccaffrey and the Panthers’ offense because it will force the defense to game plan for players other than the All-Pro. He can also avoid some of the wear and tear he sustained taking over 400 touches back in 2019 – something that played a part in just featuring three times last time around.

McCaffrey will no doubt have a big impact when the Panthers take the field in Week 1 against the New York Jets. Expect him to set the tone and continue this in every game he’s available.
