San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey rushed 22 times for 152 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, while adding three grabs for 17 yards on five targets.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers who nabbed CMC early in Round 1 on draft day got what they paid for. McCaffrey had a giant stat line, and he'll look to keep up the good work in Week 2 in another road game against the Los Angeles Rams.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey has three seasons with at least 1,000 rushing yards and 700 receiving yards, trailing only Marshall Faulk for the most in NFL history.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey had 1,210 yards from scrimmage and 10 total scores in 11 games with the 49ers last season, and if he stays healthy, he should flirt with 2,000 total yards again in 2023. He should be off the board within the first five picks in most fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey told the Rich Eisen Show last week that the team's offense is "a great fit for me" and something that has "worked forever." "It's a great fit for me. It's a great fit for, really, any skill player. It's a great fit for O-linemen, too. I mean, the scheme is so fun. It's sustainable. It's worked forever. ... And it is nice being able to have an offseason under my belt where I can get comfortable with the details and the things beyond the X's and O's that I'm not learning game plan to game plan. So I'm definitely excited to be here, be surrounded by all these guys," McCaffrey said.
Huddle Up: Somewhat surprisingly, most of McCaffrey's efficiency metrics stayed about the same after his trade from the Carolina Panthers, including yards per carry (4.6 to 4.7), yards per reception (8.4 to 8.9) and yards per touch (stayed at 5.7). With that said, McCaffrey was essentially learning the offense on the fly following the trade and should be more efficient with a full offseason under his belt. While he may not be the consensus overall No. 1 pick in fantasy drafts this summer, he should be considered a top-three pick in most.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) fully participated in practice Friday, Jan. 27, and is not on the injury report for the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey has been resting his calf during practice this week but should be able to handle his normal workload against the Philadelphia Eagles. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) took part in practice Friday, Jan. 27.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey told reporters earlier in the week there was "zero chance" he would miss the NFC Championship, so this only reinforces his confidence. Elijah Mitchell (groin) was not spotted at practice again Friday, making it entirely possible McCaffrey goes right back to being featured this weekend. If Mitchell ends up sitting Sunday, McCaffrey is a great bet to be the highest-scoring back on this DFS slate.

San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) will not practice once again on Thursday, Jan. 26, but says there's "zero" percent chance he doesn't play this week.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey's words put us at ease after his missing the first two days of practice this week. Assuming he proves to be correct, McCaffrey will be of the elite RB plays in DFS this week.
Posted: 1/25/2023 7:51 pm GMT
San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) will not practice on Wednesday, Jan. 25, but is expected to play this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said.
Huddle Up: With the expectation he'll play, McCaffrey's day off likely has more to do with rest than anything else. As is the case every week, McCaffrey is a strong DFS play.
