DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$2457 more than $8.9K on FanDuel and +$1656 more than $8.8K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Christian McCaffrey to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 248 projected fantasy points puts him at #3 behind Alvin Kamara and ahead of Ezekiel Elliott. He has averaged 17.53 fantasy points in his past 16 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 15.5 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly more valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #1 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Last season he was also the #3 ranked running back.

CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Christian McCaffrey is projected for 15.9 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #1 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a slightly better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is the highest ranked running back for the week, ahead of Alvin Kamara. His projected rank in Week 2 is the same as it is in Week 1. He is projected for 18.1 fantasy points.
