Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is officially active for the Week 4 game.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey did not practice much this week but should still receive plenty of touches against the Arizona Cardinals. He should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is expected to play in Week 4's game against the Arizona Cardinals, according to a source.
Huddle Up: McCaffrey had been listed as questionable on the injury report after participating in just one of the team's three practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. Although he may not be at 100 percent, he should be a starting option in fantasy leagues if he is declared active. However, owners should have a backup plan in place, in the event that McCaffrey is unable to suit up this week.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: The limited practice is an upgrade following consecutive DNPs to begin the week. McCaffrey's fantasy managers can't rest easy yet, as the team's website said Friday that he "has a chance to play this weekend." However, NFL Media's Ian Rapaport is reporting that CMC told reporters shortly thereafter that he "feels great" and head coach Matt Rhule told reporters that he expects his star back to play. Fantasy managers should stash D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard - probably in that order - if they can find room on their rosters, but it sounds like one of the best assets in fantasy will go this weekend.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh), CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver (Achilles), WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (hamstring) and DE Marquis Haynes (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and are listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals. TE Ian Thomas (ankle), S Xavier Woods (hamstring) and CB Donte Jackson (ankle) were also limited in practice Friday but no longer appear on the injury report. CB Jaycee Horn (calf) and LB Frankie Luvu (shoulder) practiced in full Friday and have also been removed from the injury report.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (quad) will be listed as questionable for the Week 4 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. McCaffrey returned to practice Friday, Sept. 30, after missing the first two practices of the week.
Huddle Up: If McCaffrey is active, he should be in the starting lineup, but managers may want to temper expectations. Have a backup plan just in case he's ruled out Sunday morning.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) is practicing Friday, Sept. 30, and there's optimism he plays.
Huddle Up: He'll be a solid RB1 option universally against the Arizona Cardinals.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh), WR Laviska Shenault Jr. (hamstring) and DE Marquis Haynes (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29. TE Ian Thomas (ankle), CB Stantley Thomas-Oliver (Achilles), S Xavier Woods (hamstring) and LB Frankie Luvu (shoulder) were limited. CB Jaycee Horn (calf) practiced in full.

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (thigh) missed practice for a second straight day due to a thigh issue Thursday, Sept. 29. However, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport is reporting that it is his understanding that "there is still optimism that he plays (in Week 4 against the Arizona Cardinals).
Huddle Up: It is hard to tell based on Rapoport's "should be OK" wording if he is saying McCaffrey is more likely than not to play in Week 4 or if this isn't expected to be a multi-week issue. Either way, it appears as if CMC isn't looking at a repeat of the same quad injury that cost him four games back in 2020. Fantasy managers should look to pick up D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard - probably in that order - wherever they have the room to do so while this situation plays out the rest of the week.

Carolina Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey (quad) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Given McCaffrey's recent injury history and head coach Matt Rhule's concern Wednesday, fantasy managers should prepare as if they won't have McCaffrey this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals. The odd part of this injury is that it reportedly popped up after a game in which McCaffrey handled 27 touches in Week 3 and was playing at the end. D'Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard will likely share work if CMC is ruled out. Foreman would seem to be the better bet for a touchdown and probably is a better stash than Hubbard, at least for this week.
