Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) has been declared inactive for the Week 17 game.
Huddle Up: Rodney Smith and Trenton Cannon likely will share playing time against the New Orleans Saints. Smith likely has more fantasy value at this point and can be a flex option in leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) did not participate in practice Friday, Jan. 1, and is listed as doubtful for Week 17.
Huddle Up: The Panthers are expected to be without their top two running backs, so Rodney Smith and Trenton Cannon will receive the playing time at the position. Smith has received a handful of carries over the last few weeks and may have more fantasy value. He could be a flex option in some deeper fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) will not be available for the Week 17 game, according to head coach Matt Rhule.
Huddle Up: Mike Davis is also expected to miss the game, so Rodney Smith and Trenton Cannon are candidate to receive carries in the Week 17 game. Fantasy players should monitor the situation because the starter will have fantasy value.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is 'probably a no' in terms of his availability in Week 17 against the New Orleans Saints, according to head coach Matt Rhule.
Huddle Up: It's a predictable yet sad probable ending for the consensus No. 1 overall pick in fantasy this summer, who will finish 2020 having only played three games due to ankle, shoulder and leg injuries. Despite how this year unfolded, he's likely to hold a similar ranking in most drafts next summer. Mike Davis and Rodney Smith will once again handle the majority of workload versus the Saints, although only Davis is playable in most leagues as a middling RB2 with a tough matchup.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) has been declared inactive for the Week 16 game.
Huddle Up: Mike Davis will continue to be the starting running back for the Panthers and should be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) missed his fifth consecutive practice Friday, Dec. 25, and is listed as doubtful for Week 16 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Head coach Matt Rhule refused to rule his stud back out for this weekend, but Panthers beat writer Alaina Getzenberg has already reported that Rhule is not even sure about getting him back in Week 17. Fantasy owners should expect another 15-touch down from Mike Davis in a bad matchup in Week 16, while Rodney Smith gets the rest of the work. As such, Davis figures to be a weak RB2 option in most leagues. Smith profiles a mid-range flex in deeper leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (quadriceps) did not practice Thursday, Dec. 24. 'He wants to play,'' Panthers head coach Matt Rhule said Thursday. 'He's not able to play. He wants to play. He's dying to play. Just not quite there yet.''
Huddle Up: CMac owners know the drill: He's doubtful to play Sunday in Week 16, and his availability for Week 17 is very much in question as well. Sadly, it looks like a lost season aside from the three games he did manage to squeeze in.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is considered doubtful for the Week 16 game, according to head coach Matt Rhule.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players can monitor the situation to see if McCaffrey shows any improvement but should look for other options. Mike Davis will continue to see most of the work at running back and can be a No. 2 back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is not participating in practice Wednesday, Dec. 23.
Huddle Up: The Panthers were optimistic about McCaffrey's availability for Week 16, but he likely will need to practice at some point this week if he wants to play. Fantasy players should monitor the situation to see if he will be able to play.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (quad) will 'hopefully' practice Wednesday, Dec. 23, according to head coach Matt Rhule. If McCaffrey can practice, Rhule intends to prepare him to play in Week 16 against the Washington Football Team.
Huddle Up: Fantasy owners have been through this drill more times than they care to remember, but both McCaffrey and the team have repeatedly stated they expect the stud back to play again this season. The overwhelming majority of teams that drafted McCaffrey likely won't be playing for a fantasy championship, but he would be a top-five option this week if he can go. If not, expect Carolina to utilize something approaching a 60-40 split with Mike Davis and Rodney Smith in a less than favorable matchup.
