Carolina Panthers have an elite rushing attack

Yes, this all depends on whether or not Christian McCaffrey can remain healthy for an entire campaign. But if the Stanford product can accomplish this, then it leaves the Carolina Panthers with an elite rushing attack that the team can lean on in 2022.

McCaffrey will have to be managed far more carefully moving forward. The former first-round pick comes with an unbelievable amount of talent and the consistency to match, but keeping him healthy has been a major complication over the last two seasons, where he has featured in just 10 games.

There remains some hope that Chuba Hubbard can make strides after an indifferent rookie campaign. The Panthers also signed D’Onta Foreman in free agency, who should take some pressure off thanks to his ability to generate yards in between the tackles.

All this will help McCaffrey. Even if the All-Pro remains the focal point in a system that is going to rely heavily on its running game under Ben McAdoo.

Carolina also made some outstanding additions to the offensive line, which should help carve out bigger holes for the backs to utilize. Just another dimension that should make this area a force to be reckoned with if McCaffrey suffers no more problems on the health front.
