Christian McCaffrey (ankle) will have an MRI on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The goal is to "gain a full understanding of (McCaffrey's) ailment," although the "initial hope is it's not too serious," per Rapsheet. McCaffrey was not immediately ruled out once sustaining the injury, which leaves us optimistic for tomorrow's results, but never returned to the field. The Panthers face the Chargers in Week 3.

Zoinks. Just heard he is expected to miss several weeks. Not sure if that is speculation from a source or not.

First 4-5 weeks I always try to keep the backup for my 2 best players. I figure if I make it to week 5 in good shape I can start tinkering around with cutting the backups and pick them back up if I can now and then. Not bulletproof but I would have to have CM backup, at least early on.

To all the McCaffrey owners - this is my fault. I had Mike Davis on my bench and decided to pick up Tre'quan and figured "What the heck, CMAC never gets hurt" - oopps

This is why I'm not a big fan of handcuffing.  It looks good during the draft, but the moment some waiver wire darling appears, the handcuff often gets cut as dead wood anyway.

If you'd just taken a flyer on a James Robinson in the first place, you'd be in a decent position to weather the McCaffrey injury.

I get that in the case of McCaffrey's backup but what about guys like Pollard in Dallas or Mattison in Minnesota?  Each could fill in and possibly put up the same numbers as the starter they're playing behind.

Those guys are almost rosterable even without owning the starter, at least in larger leagues.  Obviously if a "handcuff" has standalone value, they're worth drafting anyway, but at that point they're not really a handcuff.

No.  I have Pollard but not Zeke in a 12 team.  He has very little value unless Zeke gets hurt.  Lotto ticket

You spelled "Yes" wrong, but I'm glad we agree.
