“For the record , I think Christian Mccaffery is a phenomenal football player and probably a good guy . Still don’t think we should’ve extended him when we did . We should’ve been listening to offers instead of extending a RB …. Which we’ve seen no other team do,” @itsup_dare wrote.

“I want to apologize to Christian Mccaffery for drafting him in fantasy this year,” Shane Delamere wrote. “I feel like by drafting him the past two years I caused this terrible injury streak he’s had and I hope you can accept my apology.”

“Christian McCaffery & Saquon Barkley can’t stay healthy that sucks because they are very good RBs and play a big part with their team,” Tay wrote.

“The Panthers were at Critical even before they found out that they’ve lost Christian McCaffery for the rest of the season,” Nick Hlavacek wrote. “What’s the panic index at now? Supercritical? Nuclear? Plaid?”

“Christian McCaffery just gotta go ahead and retire early. He has a cool little run but he ain’t getting any better,” Ezra Cruz wrote.
