    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Workload may be scaled back

    Coach Ron Rivera said the Carolina Panthers will seek ways to ease Christian McCaffrey's workload in 2019, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.Rivera's comments occurred at the combine, a sign the Panthers are taking an interest in finding a suitable (and cheap) option to supplement the backfield. He added that McCaffrey won't necessarily experience a reduction in touches, but he'll likely defer some snaps to another running back to get the occasional breather. He played at least 90 percent of the team's offensive snaps in 14 games last season -- including all of them eight times -- en route to the third-most touches (326) in the league. The 22-year-old will be well-served in the long term if Carolina brings in some relief this offseason.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Rests for much of Week 17

    Christian McCaffrey ran for 18 yards on four carries and added a 22-yard catch during Sunday's 33-14 win over the Saints.With the playoffs out of reach, McCaffrey rested for most of Sunday as Cameron Artis-Payne and Travaris Cadet did most of the heavy lifting. The talented sophomore did warm up on the sidelines as a quarterback following Kyle Allen (shoulder's) injury, but the Carolina Panthers were able to grind the game away without his services. Though quiet Sunday, the dazzling back ended his season with 1,965 total yards and 13 total touchdowns.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Week 17 status uncertain

    Coach Ron Rivera admitted Monday that the team will hold internal discussions before deciding whether to hold out key players such as Christian McCaffrey for its Week 17 game against the Saints, Bill Voth of the Carolina Panthers' official site reports.Though the Panthers were eliminated from playoff contention heading into Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Falcons, it didn't stop McCaffrey from playing 83 of the team's 92 offensive snaps (90.2 percent), which actually dropped his season-long percentage to a still-astronomical 97.7 percent. During the contest, McCaffrey reached a milestone by hauling in 12 passes to bump his total up to 106 for the season, establishing a new NFL record for running backs. Aside from giving McCaffrey a chance to reach 2,000 scrimmage yards for the season -- he's 75 shy of that mark -- there's seemingly little benefit for the Panthers to hand the second-year player another massive workload and potentially expose him to injury in an otherwise meaningless season finale. Even if the Panthers elect to hand McCaffrey another start Week 17, there could be some risk of him being pulled from the game early, which would make him a more shaky play than usual in DFS contests.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Piles up 178 scrimmage yards

    Christian McCaffrey carried 21 times for 101 yards and caught 12 passes for an additional 77 yards during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Falcons.McCaffrey took on a workhorse role with Cam Newton (shoulder) sidelined, setting a new career high in offensive touches. He managed 4.8 yards per carry on the ground, and while he wasn't as effective on a per-catch basis, he still led the team in receiving yardage. Carolina's poor recent form has actually coincided with a drastic uptick in production for McCaffrey, who's averaging 167.7 scrimmage yards per game over the last seven. He'll look to finish what has been an outstanding season in style during Week 17 against the Saints.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Takes part in Friday's practice

    Christian McCaffrey returned to practice Friday, Max Henson of the Carolina Panthers' official site reports.McCaffrey was held out of Thursday's session in order to rest, but his presence on the field offers assurance he'll be good to go for the Panthers' Week 16 matchup with Atlanta. For the first time in his career, McCaffrey will have to adapt to a new quarterback, as Taylor Heinicke is set to fill in for the injured Cam Newton (shoulder) over the final two contests.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Throws touchdown versus Saints

    Christian McCaffrey rushed 15 times for 53 yards and caught eight of 11 targets for 67 yards in Monday night's 12-9 loss to the Saints. He also completed a 50-yard touchdown pass.McCaffrey carried Carolina's offense once again, leading the team in rushing and all receiving categories. For good measure, he also lent a hand in the passing game, tossing to a wide-open Chris Manhertz for a long score on a trick fourth-down play during the first quarter. That continued McCaffrey's touchdown streak, bringing his season total to 14, which includes 13 over his last eight outings. While another of the passing variety shouldn't be expected anytime soon, McCaffrey's heavy involvement in everything the Carolina Panthers do offensively continues to make him an ultra-dynamic threat heading into a Week 16 game versus the Falcons.

Up next is a Monday Night Football date with the Saints in Week 15.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Dominant as rusher and receiver

    Christian McCaffrey rushed 17 times for 125 yards and a touchdown while catching all 11 of his targets for another 112 yards and another score in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Seahawks. He also fumbled three times but didn't lose any.McCaffrey took over after Seattle tied the game at 20-20 with just under 10 minutes remaining. He ripped off runs of 59 and 15 yards on the next two plays to get down to the 1-yard line, then capped the drive with a two-yard touchdown catch three plays later. That touchdown was his second of the day, complementing a one-yard rushing score in the third quarter. While his efforts weren't enough to thwart a late Seattle comeback here, McCaffrey's been a touchdown machine of late, with five on the ground and four more through the air over the past five games. Expect another strong performance in Week 13 against a leaky Buccaneers defense.

    Panthers' Christian McCaffrey: Racks up 110 total yards in loss

    Christian McCaffrey rushed 13 times for 53 yards and brought in six of eight targets for 57 yards in the Carolina Panthers' 20-19 loss to the Lions on Sunday.McCaffrey turned in another solid performance, although one that was more subdued than some of his recent efforts. He still drew even with D.J. Moore for the team lead in targets and checked in second behind him in receptions, with McCaffrey's six catches qualifying as his best total in that category since Week 7. McCaffrey will undoubtedly be set for another high-usage assignment versus the Seahawks in Week 12.
