Christian McCaffrey Doesn't Disappoint In Seattle

Friday, November 24, 1:57 AM

San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey was excellent in a 31-13 victory over the Seahawks in Seattle on Thanksgiving night. He racked up 114 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 19 carries to go with five catches on six targets for 25 yards receiving. He's had zero games below 12 half-PPR points this year, and Thursday was his seventh game this season with over 20, which technically means he's really good. McCaffrey's second touchdown was particularly impressive as he appeared to be bottled up multiple times during the eight-yard scamper. Though it's conceivable that the 49ers use backup Elijah Mitchell more as the playoffs approach, it's hard to imagine anything slowing down a healthy McCaffrey moving forward. CMC will lead the 49ers rushing attack in a marquee matchup next Sunday in Philadelphia against a not-as-good-as-you-think Eagles defense.

Tyler Allgeier Sees Decreased Role Again

Sunday, November 26, 9:12 PM

Atlanta Falcons running back Tyler Allgeier began the season splitting the backfield duties with rookie Bijan Robinson. However, it appears the Falcons are finally ready to let Robinson loose and he has been making the most of it. That means, Allgeier will become the No. 2 option and see a reduced role going forward. On Sunday, Allgeier rushed 10 times for 64 yards in the win over the New Orleans Saints. A majority of his carries came in the fourth quarter as the Falcons were just trying to run out the clock. He did average 6.4 yards per carry, but the volume is going to be the biggest concern going forward. Fantasy managers should consider Allgeier a touchdown-dependent RB3 heading into next week's matchup against the New York Jets.
