Christian McCaffrey on record-setting pace ... as a receiver

Recommended Posts

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The No. 8 overall pick of the 2017 draft put on a show with his route running, whether he lined up in the backfield, in the slot or at wideout. With 20 catches in two games, he has put himself on pace to obliterate the NFL's single-season record for receptions by a running back. Matt Forte had 102 for the Chicago Bears in 2014.

Though it isn't realistic to think McCaffrey will average 10 catches a game, he is on pace for 160 total.

"Oh, he's a nightmare," Carolina strong safety Mike Adams said. "A guy that can run the routes, run the ball and catch, you're just not used to that."

 

And there's no reason to think it can't continue.

McCaffrey has 40.8 percent of his team's receptions, which is the highest rate by a running back through the first two games since 2001 when the league began keeping these stats. The previous high was 38.1 percent by Domanick Williams for the 2004 Texans.

 

I believe we are NOW aware that CMC is not a running back but a slot WR who lines up in the backfield =) 

 

When Reality Strikes....

He's averaging like 4.8 ypc. He's a complete workhorse running back and deserves touches as a runner or receiver, it doesn't matter.

No one is complaining, we are just pointing out that he used as a WR 40% of the time =)

Yeah, let's call out the one player on offense besides cam that's actually doing something 

Stats are stats my brother. This is not a complaint, this is bringing awareness to the best slot WR in the NFC South =)

He was extremely effective in this last game against Atlanta.  He carried the team along with Cam.  If the defense had put up an even modest effort we could have blown the doors off the Falcunts.

I really don't think 100 catches is out of reach for him this season. Could easily see him end up around 900 receiving yards and 600 on the ground. That's a pretty nice season.

You're trying to spin that this somehow makes him not a runningback, when as someone else pointed out, he's running the ball even better than last year.

I'm old enough to remember a time when receivers caught passes and running backs took handoffs. Then came the West Coast Offense, and suddenly you had guys like Ricky Watters who could be deadly in either category.

Norv Turner is putting a pretty heavy workload on McCaffrey, and so far it's working. As long as it continues to, the question about what position he plays is equally irrelevant as a discussion about whether our tight ends or fullbacks are really better suited to be H-backs.

No. I disliked DG and his choice to draft a slot WR in the top 8 of the draft with Kamara, Tarik Cohen all available later in the draft. Could of picked up OJ Howard and had CMC lol 

Ya'll CMC lovers defend him after fumbles and the inability to brake tackles. I just think GettleMagic fuged us over

CMC's role in the passing game still amounts to handoffs.  They're just "extended handoffs".  I'm ok with Cam throwing the ball 50 times a game if he's getting 6 or 7 yards per play and moving the chains.  It's the same difference.  

 

I don't see many Patriots and Packers fans complaining about not running the ball enough when their teams are scoring 30 points with ease week in and week out.  I don't blame them.

CMC excels at  playing WR more than running back. Is this not a reasonable conclusion? He nets 1.2 yards after contact. That does not make you a good running back =(

Pretty much. The term "long handoff" is used to describe short passes a lot for teams running WCOs. Works pretty well for the E-P that the Patriots run as well.
