5. McCaffrey finds end zone three times

If the Carolina Panthers are going to have any chance at extending their winning streak to three games under Kyle Allen, Christian McCaffrey will most likely need one of those monster games against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Whether he’s being used in the backfield or simply as a receiver, McCaffrey has become the most valuable member on the Panthers’ offense since joining the team in 2017, and it’s crazy to think this is only the beginning of what should be a promising NFL career.

Once again, McCaffrey has proven to be a dream scenario for fantasy football players, and even though the Jaguars’ defense has proven to be tough at times in 2019, the Panthers running back could still be a handful to deal with.

A few weeks ago when Carolina was sitting at 0-2, and watching Cam Newton deal with an injury, the Panthers seemed like they would be in for another year of coming up short reaching the playoffs.

Obviously, this team still has a long way to go, but another win on Sunday would only help the team feel even more confident in making this happen, especially if McCaffrey can find his way into the end zone on numerous occasions.
