Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 29, and will miss the remainder of the season with the ankle injury he suffered in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Spin: This is an absolutely crushing blow for the Panthers and fantasy managers alike, especially considering the injury was initially considered minor. It also brings into question (yet again) how Carolina has managed McCaffrey's reps in recent years. Chuba Hubbard should be expected to handle the bulk of the early-down workload following the team's Week 13 bye, although Ameer Abdullah should expect to see at least five carries per game and most of the work on passing downs. Both players should be added in all leagues if they are available.

The Carolina Panthers placed running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) on Injured Reserve on Monday and he will miss the rest of the season. Initial X-rays on McCaffrey came back negative, according to head coach Matt Rhule, but something else must have come up during additional tests on Monday after he tweaked his ankle in the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins. CMC was seen wearing a walking boot on his left foot after the game. The 25-year-old has been an absolute bust the last two years due to injuries and missed five more weeks this season due to injuries. McCaffrey will finish with 99 carries for 442 yards and one touchdown while catching 37 of 41 targets for 343 yards and a touchdown in seven games in 2021. Rookie Chuba Hubbard becomes a priority waiver-wire addition this week, as he'll see the majority of backfield work the rest of the way while sharing touches with Ameer Abdullah.

Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said that initial X-rays on running back Christian McCaffrey's ankle came back negative, but he's going for more medical tests on Monday. McCaffrey tweaked his ankle in the first half of the Week 12 loss to the Miami Dolphins and left the game in a walking boot on his left foot. Initial indications are that this isn't a serious injury, and with the Panthers on bye in Week 13, CMC may not even miss any game action. Carolina doesn't play again until Dec. 2 at home against the Atlanta Falcons. The 25-year-old had only 10 carries for the second straight week and gained only 35 yards on the ground against Miami, failing to reel in his only target through the air. If McCaffrey does need to miss any time coming off the bye week, rookie Chuba Hubbard would be in line to handle most of the backfield work.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (ankle) left the stadium in a boot Sunday, Nov. 28, but the team is on a bye in Week 13.

Fantasy Spin: He'll be re-evaluated, but it sounds like he has a chance to avoid missing another game. Stay tuned.

Nov 28 9:13pm ET

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 10 times for 35 yards in Week 12 against the Miami Dolphins and he did not have a catch on just one target before leaving the game with an ankle injury.

Fantasy Spin: McCaffrey can be a dynamic football player, but he has a terrible time staying healthy. He'll have two weeks to recover, as the team is on its bye in Week 13.

From TheHuddle

Nov 28 5:20pm ET

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 10 carries for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to Miami. The RB rolled his ankle in the first half of the contest which led to him playing less afterward. McCaffrey has been dealing with injuries all throughout the season and this has affected his availability for games and production in a couple of contests he has played. Managers should monitor the 25-year-old's status going forward but Carolina luckily doesn't have another game until Week 14, meaning the RB has time to rest and recover.

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey (ankle) rolled his ankle and later appeared in a walking boot. For the past two years, McCaffrey has dealt with several lower-body injuries and this boot is obviously not a good sign. It's still unforeseen as to how long McCaffrey's absence will be (if any at all), but fantasy owners should be concerned. His backup Chuba Hubbard must be picked up in all leagues once waivers run and would be a decent start if McCaffrey misses time. In Dynasty leagues, at this point, McCaffrey appears deserving of the "injury-prone" tag and his value has drastically decreased. If he returns and has a nice game, managers should consider selling high.

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is a solid RB1 against Miami. The RB has accumulated at least 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards in the last three games and always has a high chance to get over 100 yards of scrimmage in any contest given his large role. Miami is somewhat stingy to fantasy backs, but McCaffrey's rich volume still makes him an elite play.

From RotoBaller

Nov 26 10:43pm ET

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey has 22 career games with at least 50 rushing yards and 50 receiving yards, one shy of tying retired RB LaDainian Tomlinson and retired RB Tiki Barber for the second most in the league history.

Fantasy Spin: McCaffrey has achieved those numbers in all three game since returning from injury and in five of his six games overall this year. Having Cam Newton under center may cost him a few touchdowns, but McCaffrey's heavy workload and versatility should make him a weekly RB1.

From TheHuddle

Nov 21 10:10pm ET

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 10 rushes for 59 yards and seven receptions for 60 yards and a score on eight targets in Sunday's loss to Washington. McCaffrey once again stuffed the stat sheet and continues to be a dominant force on this offense. The RB has at least 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards in the last three games and he remains in the RB1 tier going forward.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey led the team in both rushing and receiving in a 27-21 loss to the Washington Football Team in Week 11, finishing with 10 carries for 59 yards and seven receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown.

Fantasy Spin: McCaffrey remained a major part of the offense in Cam Newton's first start, but while the running back's total touches shouldn't change much, he will likely lose out on some touchdown opportunities in the red zone.

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is an RB1 option against Washington in Week 11. McCaffrey dealt with a minor setback to his hamstring last week during the game against Arizona, but luckily it seems it hasn't bothered him enough to affect his status for Week 11. The RB looked sharp last week when he was in the game, posting 13 carries for 95 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards on 10 targets. As the focal point of this offense, McCaffrey will see the volume and he's one of the best plays of the week against a Washington squad that's average against fantasy RBs.

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey was not on the team's Week 11 injury report and was able to get in a full practice on Wednesday. Yeah, we had to do a double take, too. It looked like his troublesome hamstring was giving him issues in the Week 10 win over the Arizona Cardinals, but the fact that McCaffrey isn't on the injury report at all is excellent news heading into a Week 11 date with the Washington Football Team. In two games since returning from an extended absence, CMC has 27 carries for 147 yards and 14 catches on 15 targets for 120 yards. Quarterback Cam Newton could take away valuable goal-line touches if he takes over the starting QB job this weekend, but McCaffrey will still be a must-start, high-end RB1.

Panthers' RB Christian McCaffrey scored 26.10 fantasy points in Sunday's Week 10 win in Arizona. McCaffrey ran for 95 yards and caught 10 passes for 66 yards.

Nov 14 10:00pm ET

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey finished with 13 carries for 95 yards and 10 receptions for 66 yards on 10 targets in Sunday's win over Arizona. McCaffrey produced well on Sunday but it's worth noting his hamstring acted up in the game and he wasn't much of a factor in the second half. The RB missed time this season already due to a hamstring injury, so the only hope is he didn't reaggravate the injury. It's worth monitoring the RB's status this week as Chuba Hubbard could see more playing time once again if McCaffrey can't play in a game.

Carolina Panthers QB Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 95 yards in Week 10 against the Arizona Cardinals, while adding 10 receptions for 66 yards on 10 targets. He left briefly for the medical tent, and was seen on the sideline having a trainer loosening up his right leg, but he was able to return and finish the game.

Fantasy Spin: CMC is an explosive player when he is healthy, but that has been a rarity in recent seasons. He'll look to keep up the good work in Week 11 against the Washington Football Team and former head coach Ron Rivera.

Panthers' RB Christian McCaffrey had 10 receptions for 66 yards but no touchdowns in Sunday's win in Arizona.

Nov 12 8:40pm ET

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey is a solid start in Week 10 given the team will be starting an inexperienced QB in P.J. Walker. The expectation is the back will shoulder most of the offensive workload. The 25-year-old returned last week after missing time due to a hamstring injury sustained in Week 3. He posted 52 rushing yards and 54 receiving yards. Though Arizona is stingy against fantasy backs, McCaffrey's rich workload keeps him in the RB1 tier.

Nov 12 4:50pm ET

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, who made his return from a hamstring injury in Week 9, wasn't on the injury report all week and won't carry an injury designation into the Week 10 contest against the Arizona Cardinals. It was uncertain how much of a role CMC would have in his first game action since Week 3, but he ended up playing just under half of the offensive snaps, with rookie Chuba Hubbard on the field 16.9% of the time. McCaffrey went over 100 yards from scrimmage on 14 carries and four receptions on five targets. It was an encouraging first game back, and he could be relied on even more this Sunday with P.J. Walker starting at quarterback for the injured Sam Darnold (shoulder). We shouldn't have to say this, but McCaffrey is a must-start RB1.

From RotoBaller

Nov 7 7:53pm ET

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 14 times for 52 yards in Week 9 against the New England Patriots while adding four receptions for 54 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Spin: CMC was back for the first time since Sept. 23 due to a hamstring injury. The brittle back can once again be treated as a must-start fantasy option in most leagues heading into Week 10 in Arizona.
