|Hubbard had a chance to solidify the Panthers' RB room with a strong performance in place of the injured Christian McCaffrey as a rookie in 2021. It didn't play out the way he probably dreamed it would. He averaged just 3.6 yards per carry and had just 25 catches in 17 games, averaging less than 7.0 yards per catch. There's a chance he could make a big leap from year one to year two. Many rookies do. But there's also a chance he could be reduced to a committee role, even if McCaffrey goes down again. The signing of veteran D'Onta Foreman doesn't seem like a vote of confidence in Hubbard. He's not a fantasy option out of the gate.

FFToday's Take: Hubbard also missed Week 8 with an ankle injury. In his absence, expect D'Onta Foreman to be the main ball carrier for the Panthers against the Bengals. Spencer Brown and Raheem Blackshear could also see limited action. Foreman is an easy RB2 with RB1 upside.

|Sources: The #Panthers are trading star RB Christian McCaffrey to the #49ers, as SF adds a major offensive weapon. Full terms:
-- The #49ers get star RB Christian McCaffrey.
-- The #Panthers get a 2nd round pick in 2023, a third-rounder in 2023, and a fourth-round pick in 2023. Plus, a fifth-rounder in 2024.

FFToday's Take: This is quite a haul for a running back but McCaffrey is arguably the best running back in the league. This is also a nice boost for his fantasy value but not as big as it might seem. McCaffrey is already RB4 in PPR scoring but his touchdown outlook is definitely going to increase on his new team. Jeff Wilson has lost a huge chunk of value and we'll see how much this impacts the running of Deebo Samuel. D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard are likely to share carries in Carolina in the wake of McCaffrey leaving.
| Panthers optimistic on Christian McCaffrey's status|
Hope he will practice tomorrow

|As @RapSheet said, Panthers are optimistic about Christian McCaffrey‘s status. The hope is he’ll practice tomorrow after rehabbing quad injury all week. (Joe Person on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: "Hope" isn't a great word to hear in this situation but we'll likely get a good handle on McCaffrey's true status after practice on Friday. If McCaffrey were to miss this week, it's likely you'd see some form of committee at running back between D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard.
