McCaffrey one of the draft’s most versatile weapons


  • In 2015, Christian McCaffrey led the NCAA in all-purpose yardage with 276 yards per game, breaking a single-season record that had been held by Hall of Famer, Barry Sanders.
  • McCaffrey can return punts, kicks, carry the football and is a threat in the passing game as a receiver out of the backfield and lined up as a true wide out.
  • McCaffrey forced 65 missed tackles as both a rusher and receiver in 2016, to go with the 85 he notched the season before, gaining much of that yardage after contact.
  • He lined up either in the slot or out wide on 47 occasions in 2016.

Fantasy Slant: Yep, he’s really good at racking up yards, which bodes well for McCaffrey’s future fantasy outlook. The biggest factor in McCaffrey’s post-draft fantasy stock is landing spot. If he’s selected by a team who will use him as a three-down back, McCaffrey has the potential to be the first overall selection in fantasy rookie drafts.
