2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
A budding superstar through his first three NFL seasons, McCaffrey battled injuries that limited him to just 10 games in 2020 and 2021 combined. His inability to stay healthy led to Carolina flipping the former All Pro for a handful of picks last October. For at least one season, the trade was a slam dunk success for the 49ers as Run CMC's arrival immediately transformed the 49ers offense -- in six games before acquiring McCaffrey, the 49ers averaged 20.3 points per game; in 11 games after, that number jumped to 29.8.

Shanahan also seemed to find the right balance to keep McCaffrey on the field, only exceeding 20 carries in a game once. The monitored workload didn't hamper his statistical output, though, as in 14 games with San Francisco (including the playoffs), the Stanford product averaged 108 total yards per outing and scored 13 touchdowns. He's as talented a back as there is the NFL, and his versatility may be unmatched as well with great hands out of the backfield and the toughness to be effective in goal-to-go situations that belie his size.

There's no doubt McCaffrey belongs in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick alongside the likes of Justin Jefferson, Austin Ekeler, and Jonathan Taylor, but the seventh-year pro didn't have his durability red flags wiped clean by one healthy campaign. Plus, there's this historical nugget: the 49ers have had a different leading rusher in each of Shanahan's six seasons as head coach. Ultimately, McCaffrey is a clear RB1 that carries significant risk.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Christian McCaffrey feeling fine
HC shoots down talk of RB being bothered by quad issue
By: Doug Orth | Tue Jan 23, 10:00 pm

San Francisco
For the 49ers, the good news is that running back Christian McCaffrey had another great game in the divisional round against the Packers, with 98 rushing yards on 17 carries, 30 receiving yards and two touchdowns. The better news is that he’s healthy, even though some thought he might not be. On Monday, coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about TV images showing McCaffrey getting his quad worked on. Is there an issue with it? “No, I heard about that on the TV [broadcast] because some of my family members asked me about it,” Shanahan said. “But that’s just what Christian to me always does. He’s always working on his body and stuff. I was told nothing about his quad.” (Pro Football Talk - Mike Florio)

FFToday's Take: The broadcast showed up after getting quad worked on early in the game. One would have to think the 49ers would have made getting Elijah Mitchell more work if CMC's health against Green Bay was much of an issue. McCaffrey's biggest obstacle this week figures to be Detroit's run defense, although he should be able to make up for it with his work in the passing game. McCaffrey is always a big part of the offense, but his presence could be even more important this week if Deebo Samuel (shoulder) cannot play.


Injury Christian McCaffrey logs full practice on Tuesday
RB fully healed following Week 17 mild calf strain

FFToday's Take: McCaffrey's injury was deemed minor shortly after it happened. Today's practice will be his first on-field work of any kind in about 2 1/2 weeks, which apparently was enough time for CMC to recover. Barring an in-game setback, expect McCaffrey to handle his usual 20-plus touches and finish as the highest-scoring running fantasy back on the slate in the NFC Divisional Round game against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.


Injury Christian McCaffrey will not play in season finale
RB suffered mild calf strain in Week 17
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jan 1, 9:20 pm

Kyle Shanahan says RB Christian McCaffrey has a mild calf strain and will miss the Week 18 regular-season finale. (NFL Network - Clayton Holloway)

FFToday's Take: With the NFC No. 1 seed clinched and a bye week following that, it makes no sense for CMC or the team to push their running back. He'll have the good fortune of resting up to three full weeks if he needs it. Elijah Mitchell filled in quite nicely, finishing with 17 carries for 80 yards and a touchdown. He will be a priority add for the relatively few leagues that use Week 18 to determine their champion.
