Updated: Jul 17
Historically Great Running Back Who Also
Happens To Be Healthy Once Again
All reports indicate that Christian McCaffrey is fully healthy and will be at the start of the 2021 season. He said himself "I feel good. I feel really good. I'm back to 100%, I feel healthy and I'm ready to roll" and its hard not to believe that. After all, he had already returned to practiced all the way back in late November of 2020. Barring some drastic change of events he will back at his old dominant self and in case you forgot just how dominant a healthy CMC is ill break it down for you his historic fantasy production.
Just some of the stats
Let's go all the way back to 2018 when he was already showing signs of greatness. He finished 2nd among all running backs in fantasy scoring by just half a fantasy point or just 0.2% difference in soring. Then in 2019 he took his game to another level by becoming just the 3rd player in NFL history to finished without 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. Meanwhile breaking his own record for most catches by a running back in single a season with 116. This ultimately lead to him finish with the most fantasy points among all running backs and outscoring the next best back by 150fpts, a 32% difference. That is the biggest margin in fantasy points we here at the FFP have ever found. In fact, at the pace he could have played in just 12 games he still would have been the best back in fantasy that year. Fast forward to 2020 and injuries held him to just 3 games, but even in those games he was great. Sure the sample size was small and his yards per carry were low but he did score 4 TDs and was on pace to lead all running backs in fantasy scoring once again. I could go on and on with records he has broken and stats he has lead, but at this point I hope you get the picture. CMC in the best running back in football and he deserves to be ranked as such.
