Panthers' Christian McCaffrey (quad) officially out for Week 16

Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey will not play in the team's Week 16 game against the Washington Football Team.

What It Means:

McCaffrey has been struggling with a quad injury that he picked up during the recovery process for the ankle injury that kept him out for most of the season. With him sidelined again, expect Mike Davis to lead the way for the Panthers backfield again in Week 16.

McCaffrey, the consensus first overall pick in fantasy drafts this year, will finish the fantasy season with just 3 games played. Despite his limited appearances, he still averaged a ridiculous 27.3 fantasy points per game in 2020. He will likely be one of the top fantasy picks in 2021 drafts next year.
