Christian McCaffrey Player Prop: Over 39.5 Receiving Yards (-110)

The Panthers are in complete disarray after firing their coach and removing their starting QB from the lineup with an injury. But the disaster of a season hasn’t been Christian McCaffrey’s fault. He has remained healthy and productive thus far.

I think that should continue this week against the Rams, at least as far as his receiving numbers go. A few things make me bullish on his chances.

First, plugging in a backup QB usually means we’re going to see short passes. Tight ends and RBs tend to be a backup’s best friends. They provide safety valves so the QB doesn’t just completely blow up their team’s chances with huge mistakes. Indeed, while PJ Walker actually has a pretty massive average depth of target in a small sample, he peppered McCaffrey with targets last year. In the game they both started against the Cardinals, he sent 10 of his 29 passes to the dynamic back.

Furthermore, I don’t see the Rams LBs as particularly strong in coverage. McCaffrey should find himself open pretty often.

Finally, the game script could really help McCaffrey clear this number. We’re looking at a massive line of Rams that I frankly think is too low. If indeed the Rams put the Panthers in a big hole, they’ll begin to back their defenders up and focus on keeping everything short. That should result in some free catches underneath for McCaffrey.
