Christian McCaffrey's Fantasy Scouting Report

SEASON FANTASY RECAP AND TREND

Christian McCaffrey was the number #3 ranked RB and the #19 ranked player overall. His elite ranking was helped by his higher games played (16). Based on average fantasy points he is the #6 RB. He trended up as the season went on. In his first 5 games he averaged 12.7 FPs. He improved to 19.2 in the next 5 games. In his final stretch of games he improved to 20.4 per game. Given his youth, he should be able to continue showing improvement next season. His fantasy production is stable and he is not as volatile as most players based on a below average standard deviation. He averaged 17.7 FPs, but on any given day his projected ceiling is as high as 36 fantasy points with a floor of 4 points.
