Like Warm, Apple Pie.

Christian McCaffrey is on pace for 1,644 rushing yards, 100 receptions, 872 receiving yards, 16 TDs. LOL.

Imagine sleeping with the most beautiful woman you've ever seen. And then imagine something better than that.

Didn't they have CJ last year and then end up releasing him because he was barely used? This seems more like Breer coming to this conclusion rather than what the coaching staff actually means.

 

As a big CJ guy, I thought for sure he would get some GL work and late game mop up duty and push for carries.

Albert Breer

 

3) Finding a backup RB is a focus, with Jordan Scarlett, Reggie Bonnafon and Cameron Artis-Payne vying for the job. The hope is they can take some of the mileage -- but not touches -- off Christian McCaffrey. Ideally, they'd delegate a lot of his short-yardage and goal-line work.

 

Absolutely mind-numbing. Take your best player off the field in the most important situations?

Yeah it’s not actually happening. Just ignore it. Cmac is the wheels, engine, and steering wheel of that offense.

Exactly. Worst case scenario is that they take him off short yardage, which isn't really that bad. The goalline work is the main focus and I highly doubt they take him off the field when they are down in the redzone.

Thoughts on his draft position with the uncertainty around the Cam injury?

 

Unless MRI results reveal some devastating news, I think you draft him as you normally would. The fact that Cam came out walking in a walking boot instead of walking on crutches is promising, but we just don't know yet. We only have a small sample size of CMC playing without Cam and he did extremely well in week 16 last season.

Exactly, he had probably one of his best games last season without Cam against the Falcons with Taylor Heinicke as QB. It's not like CMC depends on timing routes to get his yards. He gets his yards from short dump passes, and then does his thing. Who knows, it may allow CMC to get even more touches at the goal line without Cam in calling his own number inside the 5.

CMC is definitely a top 3 selection. 

I agree, still top three. But does AK jump him into the two spot? Seems like Cam dodged serious injury. But could be a lingering thing that hampers him. Maybe that’s good for CMC.

Thank gravy Cam’s doesn’t need surgery. 

 

Hope they let him miss miss a game or two if he needs it rather than rushing it and ruining him. CMC needs Cam

I'm not sure how much, if any, CMC needs Cam. Albeit a small sample size we have seen CMC "ball out" without him. Also, who is likely to benefit the most by Cam being out? The Receivers, The TE's, In my opinion CMC gets fed even more with the dump pass without Cam, and probably gets more rush attempts too, especially at the goal line.

I hope you are right. I saw a few minutes of the game last night and the O Line did not look good. Have to believe that the threat of Cam running helps with that whereas a back up might exasperate the problem. I also feel better when I have confidence the offense can move the ball. Wouldn’t feel great about that happening without Cam.

Sounds like he’ll be ok but if he isn’t, I hope you’re right.

Me Too. Sounds like a mid-foot sprain. So Cam should be ready week 1. Although I think CMC will be ok without him, I would rather have him in there than not.

I like AK one spot ahead of CMC kind of because of the explosive offense of New Orleans.

Patriots D is gonna ball out this year. #4 fantasy last year.

 

CMC still worth the pick here. Still a lock for 100+ targets
