Christian McCaffrey Scores Touchdown In 12th Straight Game

Friday, September 22, 1:04 AM

San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey tied Jerry Rice's all-time 49ers record by scoring a touchdown for the 12th straight game in Thursday night's dominant win against the New York Giants. McCaffrey, 27, finished the night with 85 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries. He also caught all five of his targets for 34 yards receiving. In a juicy matchup against a New York defense that had struggled to stop the run, McCaffrey was his usual self, combining elusiveness with power. His fantasy day was limited by head coach Kyle Shanahan keeping his promise to get other running backs involved, though his 23 touches matched last week's. He has plenty of time to rest up before an October 1 date at home against the Arizona Cardinals.

Aaron Jones News

Aaron Jones Officially Questionable For TNF

Wednesday, September 27, 6:48 PM

Green Bay Packers running back Aaron Jones (hamstring) is being listed as questionable ahead of Thursday night's game against the Detroit Lions. Jones has missed the last two weeks dealing with a hamstring injury and the fact the Packers are playing on Thursday makes him truly questionable this week. The veteran ball carrier was dynamic in the only game he's played this year, carrying the ball nine times for 41 yards and a score and hauling in 2-of-4 targets for 86 yards and another touchdown through the air back in Week 1. If he missed a third straight week on Thursday then AJ Dillon would continue to lead the Packers' backfield. If Jones suits up, he's likely to be on a snap count and would check in as a low-end RB2. Dillon is more of an RB3 even if Jones doesn't play.
