Christian McCaffrey is the Number One running back in Fantasy Football and it's not even close
Every season in the NFL, one player takes the league by storm and helps millions of people win their fantasy football league. In 2019, that player is Christian McCaffrey. The Panthers running back is leading all non-quarterbacks with 244 points in PPR formats. That's an average of 30 points per game. To put his domination in perspective, Josh Jacobs is the Number 10 running back thus far and he averages 16 points per game. McCaffrey is doubling the amount of points for the 10th best player at the position. Having the third year rusher is essentially like having an extra player in your lineups.
We pinned McCaffrey's total yards (155 combined average) up against Roku which is trading around $140. Wall Street legend and life-long fantasy football player Jim Cramer says Roku is a "sell" and like all other hyper-growth stocks it will start to fall. Meanwhile Sports Illustrated's Nick Kostos says McCaffrey's opponent in Week 10, the Packers, are an absolute fraud on defense and "CMC" should have no problem extending his excellent season this weekend in Greed Bay.
But there is a silver lining for Packers fans as Kostos says the Packers will not only win in Week 10 but they'll cover the spread which is currently set at Green Bay laying seven points.
