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.

Raheem Mostert Has Low End RB1 Potential In Week 3

Friday, September 22, 12:40 PM

Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert looks like a younger version of himself so far this year and has turned into a bellcow back at the age of 31. After running for 121 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots, he sets his sights on a Broncos defense that allows the sixth-most missed tackles in the league so far. To go a step further, Mostert has played 73% of the team's snaps each week and it doesn't look like anyone will be challenging him for more carries. The Broncos even give up the tenth-most yards after contact. All of that makes for a quality week that could lead Mostert to a low-end RB1.
