Player Outlook
The consensus No. 1 overall pick in one-QB formats remains McCaffrey, who has averaged at least 21 PPR points in each of his past two seasons. In fact, of the 27 regular-season games McCaffrey played in with the 49ers, he's hit at least 21 PPR points 17 times (63% of his games) and at least 30 PPR points five times (nearly 20% of his games). If there's a worry, it's that McCaffrey is 28 years old and coming off of a 417-touch season including the playoffs. The previous time McCaffrey had over 400 touches in a year was 2019, and he followed it up with two injury-plagued seasons. The 417 touches were also his most in a season ever. The best way to safeguard your investment in McCaffrey would be to add his backup, presumably Elijah Mitchell, with a pick in Round 9 or later.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Lands two-year, $38M extension

    The 49ers signed McCaffrey to a two-year, $38 million contract extension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. CMC's existing deal was set to run through 2025, and he's getting an additional $8 million up front before this two-year extension kicks in to keep him under contract through 2027. The $19 million annual average makes McCaffrey the NFL's highest-paid running back, a distinction he'd already held at just over $16 million per year. This further sets him apart from Alvin Kamara ($15 million) and Jonathan Taylor ($14 million) at the top of the position. McCaffrey was named the AP Offensive Player of the Year last season and was third in MVP voting after finishing with 2,023 scrimmage yards and 21 touchdowns across 16 regular-season contests. McCaffrey turns 28 years old later this week.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Stellar 160-yard effort not enough

    McCaffrey rushed 22 times for 80 yards while corralling all eight of his targets for 80 yards and a touchdown in a 25-22 overtime loss to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. McCaffrey's day got off to an ominous start when he fumbled away his fourth touch of the 49ers' opening drive in Kansas City territory. The NFL's Offensive Player of the Year responded by scoring the game's first touchdown on a trick play in the second quarter, finishing with game highs in yards (160) and touches (30) despite coming up short in overtime. McCaffrey wraps up his first full season in San Francisco with 2,443 combined yards and 26 total touchdowns across 19 regular-season and playoff contests. Under contract through 2025, he'll head a retooled 49ers offense next year while likely being one of the first options taken off the boards in fantasy drafts.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Honored before Super Bowl

    McCaffrey was named the Offensive Player of the Year on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Even by his own lofty standards, McCaffrey had an incredible season, racking up a career-high 21 total touchdowns while also totaling 2,023 yards from scrimmage across 16 games. His ultimate goal still lies ahead with the 49ers set to square off against the Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Sunday, and he's chipped in an additional four scores across two postseason contests.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Carries offense with two more TDs

    McCaffrey rushed 20 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns while catching four of five targets for 42 yards in Sunday's 34-31 NFC Championship Game win over the Lions. McCaffrey proved why he deserves to be in the MVP conversation with an impressive personal effort to will his team to the final round of the playoffs. The dual-threat superstar had a pair of rushing TDs that helped erase a 17-point deficit at halftime. McCaffrey came a couple yards short of a third score on a lengthy run in the fourth quarter, but he was slammed on his head and needed to have his neck worked on by the training staff as Elijah Mitchell spelled him for a short score to finish off the drive. McCaffrey seemed to be in good health and spirits during the postgame victory interview, so he should be available on Sunday, Feb. 11 when the 49ers take on the Chiefs in Las Vegas for Super Bowl LVIII.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Two TDs in divisional-round win

    McCaffrey rushed 17 times for 98 yards and two touchdowns and brought in seven of 12 targets for 30 yards in the 49ers' 24-21 divisional-round win over the Packers on Saturday night. McCaffrey had a lower-volume game than anticipated, especially when factoring in that Deebo Samuel exited for good in the first half with a shoulder injury. However, the Packers' ability to hold leads for extended periods during the contest played a part in that reduced rushing workload, and McCaffrey navigated the drop in opportunities with efficiency, elevated involvement as a receiver and his 39- and six-yard scoring runs. Both of the star back's rushing touchdowns erased Packers leads, with the latter also providing the game-winning points. McCaffrey naturally figures to play a significant role once again versus either the Buccaneers or Lions in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 28.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Good to go for divisional round

    McCaffrey (calf) will be a full practice participant Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. McCaffrey missed the 49ers' Week 18 loss to the Rams after suffering a calf injury during a Week 17 game in which San Francisco clinched the NFC's No. 1 seed. He's apparently healthy after a bye for the first round of the playoffs, and the NFL's 2023 leader in scrimmage yards should be ready for his usual every-down role this Saturday against Green Bay in the divisional round.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Expected back at practice next week

    McCaffrey (calf) won't practice this week but is expected to return to the field next week ahead of the 49ers' divisional-round playoff game, Nick Wagoner of reports. McCaffrey suffered a mild right calf strain in Week 17 against the Commanders and subsequently sat out San Francisco's regular-season finale this past Sunday. The 49ers will take advantage of their bye week in the first round of the postseason and give the star tailback some extra time off to recover from the injury, but the expectation remains that he'll be ready to handle his usual high-volume workload when the team opens its playoff run Jan. 20 or 21.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Won't play in Week 18

    Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that McCaffrey is dealing with a mild right calf strain and won't play Sunday against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of reports. With the 49ers having clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the team has no reason to play McCaffrey in Week 18 at less than 100 percent health. The star running back thus will target a return to action in the divisional round of the playoffs following the 49ers' first-round bye. With McCaffrey not in line to face Los Angeles this weekend, Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason are available to handle the team's backfield duties, while Tyrion Davis-Price is a candidate to be promoted from San Francisco's practice squad.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Injury could be minor

    The right calf injury McCaffrey sustained in Sunday's victory over the Commanders could be minor, according to Nick Wagoner of McCaffrey left the contest in the third quarter after picking up the injury, but he spoke after the game and hinted that he was held out for precautionary purposes. The 49ers clinched the top seed in the NFC with Sunday's win, so they figure to take the cautious route in the days ahead. McCaffrey has a chance to play Week 18 against the Rams as things stand, but if he's held out by the team, Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason would be candidates to step in.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: May have sustained calf strain

    Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed after Sunday's 27-10 win over the Commanders that McCaffrey may be dealing with a calf strain, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. On the plus side, Shanahan noted that McCaffrey's calf issue doesn't appear serious. Prior to exiting Sunday's contest, McCaffrey had carried 14 times for 64 yards and caught four of his five targets for 27 yards. McCaffrey's status will need to be monitored in the coming days, but the fact that the 49ers have clinched the No. 1 playoff seed in the NFC figures to factor into their plans for the star running back in Week 18.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Exits Sunday's game

    McCaffrey exited Sunday's game against the Commanders with a right calf injury and is questionable to return. Prior to sustaining his calf injury, McCaffrey had carried 14 times for 64 yards and caught four of his five targets for 27 yards. If the star tailback is sidelined for the rest of Week 17, Elijah Mitchell would likely finish the contest as the 49ers' lead option on the ground.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Pacing league with 21 TDs

    McCaffrey rushed 14 times for 103 yards and a touchdown while adding six receptions for 28 yards off of 10 targets in Monday's 33-19 loss to the Ravens. It was a disastrous night for the 49ers on the whole, but it's hard to point any fingers at McCaffrey after he logged the fourth 100-yard rushing game over his last five contests. The MVP candidate also punched in his 21st touchdown of the season, maintaining pace for the league lead with Miami's Raheem Mostert, who also registered his 21st score earlier in Week 16. McCaffrey has just set a new personal best in rushing yards over a single season with 1,395 through 15 games, surpassing the 1,387 yards on the ground that he posted during his incredible 2019 campaign with the Panthers. With just two games left in the regular season, McCaffrey should be afforded ample opportunities to bolster his award bids, starting with a road matchup against the Commanders on Sunday.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Goes off for three scores Sunday

    McCaffrey rushed 18 times for 115 yards and a touchdown while hauling in all five of his targets for 72 yards and two additional scores in Sunday's 45-29 win over the Cardinals. McCaffrey ran wild on Arizona's porous run defense as expected Sunday, churning out his sixth game with 100 or more rushing yards in 2023. The dual-threat superstar also notched his first multi-score game as a receiver this season. The end result was a mammoth point total for managers in the thick of the fantasy playoffs. McCaffrey's three combined scores against the Cardinals brings him up to an even 20 on the year, which also set a new career high. CMC can surpass another personal high-water mark if he can generate at least 96 rushing yards against the Ravens next Monday.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Runs wild on Seahawks

    McCaffrey took 16 carries for 145 yards and caught his lone target for eight yards in Sunday's 28-16 win over the Seahawks. McCaffrey set the tone for Sunday's victory when he took a pitch off tackle for 72 yards on the first offensive play of the game. The MVP candidate was stopped three yards short of the goal line, giving way to Jordan Mason, who finished off San Francisco's opening drive with a short touchdown. CMC finished the contest without a score and his lowest target total (one) of the season, but the fantasy stud made up for those shortcomings by recording his most rushing yards since Week 1 on the tailback's best per-carry average (9.1) of the season. The red-hot McCaffrey will face the Cardinals, who rank in the bottom third of the league in terms of rushing yards allowed per game (123.9), next Sunday.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Top performer on Thanksgiving

    McCaffrey racked up 114 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 19 attempts while catching five of six targets for 25 yards in Thursday's 31-13 win over the Seahawks. McCaffrey displayed no signs of fatigue despite receiving just three days off in between Thursday's two-score showing and a 26-touch performance where he went over 100 combined yards with a touchdown against the Buccaneers last Sunday. The MVP candidate put his signature combination of strength and elusiveness on display when he appeared to be engulfed by multiple Seattle defenders in the backfield before miraculously slipping through for his second touchdown of the evening. The pair of trips to the end zone gives the multifaceted superstar double-digit rushing touchdowns for just the second time in career, with the previous coming back in 2019 when he earned first-team All Pro honors after racking up 15 over 16 games. McCaffrey will finally get an opportunity to rest until the calendar turns for a rematch of last year's NFC Championship Game when the 49ers travel to the Link to take on the Eagles on Dec. 3.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Gets back in end zone Sunday

    McCaffrey carried the ball 21 times for 78 yards and caught all five of his targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-14 win over the Buccaneers. After seeing his 17-game touchdown streak end last week, McCaffrey wasted little time starting a new one, snagging a four-yard score from Brock Purdy with just under four minutes left in the first quarter. He also topped 100 scrimmage yards for the third straight game and the seventh time in 10 contests this season, and McCaffrey's on pace to reach 2,000 scrimmage yards for the second time in his career. He could be poised for a big game in Week 12 against a Seahawks defense that just gave up 102 combined yards and a TD to the much less impressive duo of Royce Freeman and Darrell Henderson.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Gets 142 yards but TD streak ends

    McCaffrey rushed 16 times for 95 yards and caught six of 10 targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 34-3 win over Jacksonville. McCaffrey's touchdown streak ended at 17 games, including the playoffs, one shy of the NFL record. San Francisco gave him two carries and two targets from inside the 10-yard line on its penultimate drive, but McCaffrey couldn't get into the end zone to extend the streak. He still surpassed 100 scrimmage yards for the fourth time in the last five games, and the workhorse running back has logged at least 22 touches in each of those games. Starting a new touchdown streak may not be easy in Week 11 against a Tampa Bay defense that has allowed only one scrimmage touchdown to a running back this season.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Two touchdowns in loss

    McCaffrey rushed 12 times for 54 yards and a touchdown and brought in six of seven targets for 64 yards and another score in the 49ers' 31-17 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. McCaffrey still bulled his way to a solid fantasy afternoon thanks to his nose for the end zone, but he saw a modest amount of rushing opportunities for the third straight game. The explosive back crossed the goal line on a two-yard rush and four-yard reception in the second and fourth quarters, respectively, yet his rushing yardage total was his fourth consecutive sub-60-yard tally. Nevertheless, McCaffrey has scored at least once in all eight contests thus far and will next face a tough Jaguars run defense in a Week 10 road matchup following a Week 9 bye.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Plays through injury for two scores

    McCaffrey (oblique) had 15 carries for 45 yards and a touchdown (one fumble lost) in addition to catching all three of his targets for 51 yards and another score in Monday's 22-17 loss to the Vikings. McCaffrey was able to power through an oblique injury sustained in last week's loss to Cleveland and wound up receiving his usual hefty workload in Monday's primetime loss. The 27-year-old commanded all but one of the 49ers' backfield touches against Minnesota en route to his eighth rushing touchdown and third receiving touchdown of the season. With 11 combined scores through seven weeks, McCaffrey is on pace to crush the 19 touchdowns he scored during his incredible 2019 campaign. Assuming his body is no worse for wear, expect McCaffrey to see plenty of work as the 49ers attempt to get back on track against the Bengals on Sunday.

  • 49ers' Christian McCaffrey: Expected to suit up vs. Vikings

    McCaffrey (oblique), who officially is listed as questionable, is expected to play Monday against Minnesota, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. McCaffrey, who turned in a limited practice session Saturday, looks to be on track for Monday Night Football. The star running back's status will be made official roughly 90 minutes before Sunday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but at this point the drumbeat has been consistently positive regarding his chances of being active. What remains to be seen is whether McCaffrey's snaps could be capped due to the oblique injury he sustained Week 6. Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason stand to see work in either case, and the tandem of backups may see increased opportunities if McCaffrey is limited in any capacity.
