2020 Outlook
Depth Chart
McCaffrey had one of the greatest seasons ever at the running back position in 2019, rushing for 1,387 yards and 15 touchdowns, and adding 1,005 yards receiving on 116 receptions with another 4 touchdowns through the air. It was one of the highest-scoring seasons ever for a running back, as he scored 469 PPR points. The only running back to ever score more in a season was LaDainian Tomlinson, who scored 472 PPR points back in 2006.

Despite the amazing season, it is important to realize that McCaffrey basically did what he has been doing his whole career. It does not look like his 2019 was much of an outlier when you look carefully at the stats. Perhaps he scored touchdowns at a higher rate than normal on the ground, and that certainly may regress to the mean a bit. But he finished with 4.8 yards per carry; in 2018 he finished with 5 yards per carry. He simply got more carries in 2019. In 2018 he had 107 receptions with an 86% catch rate; in 2019 he had 116 receptions with an 81% catch rate. He simply had more targets in 2019.

So the main question to consider with McCaffrey is whether his workload will continue to be so robust. He finished 2019 with 403 total touches, and the next highest running back (Ezekiel Elliott) finished with 355 touches. There were seven other backs besides Elliott and McCaffrey who finished above 300. McCaffrey is an otherworldly talent, but his huge touch total certainly contributed to his remarkable fantasy season.

He was also on the field for over 93% of the Panthers' offensive snaps, and Elliott was again second with 83%. That equates to an extra 102 snaps for McCaffrey compared to Elliott. And all of that opportunity led to a bunch of extra touches and production. So will Rhule and Brady keep McCaffrey on the field at this rate, or will they try to keep him fresh and rotate him off more often? That is a question we cannot know the answer to, but the truth is that McCaffrey has been historically excellent whenever he's been on the field. So he will likely be worth the first overall pick in fantasy drafts, even if his snap share plummets to around 75%.
