Christian McCaffrey Worth Every Penny of his $10,500 Week 10 DraftKings Price

When making Week 10 DraftKings Lineups, one of the first decisions will be whether or not to pay up $10,5000 for Christian McCaffrey. That’s a whopping $1700 more than the next closest player, Saquon Barkley.

My advice? Toss the money to the wind without a second thought.

McCaffrey is amidst a historic fantasy stretch. In fact, look at his last 16 games + fantasy finishes:

  • 37.6 PPR (1st)
  • 27.5 (6th)
  • 21.7 (8th)
  • 47.7 (2nd)
  • 33.9 (2nd)
  • 27.8 (4th)
  • 7.3 (41st)
  • 42.9 (1st)
  • 29.8 (1st)
  • 26.0 (7th)
  • 28.1 (4th)
  • 31.1 (3rd)
  • 46.7 (1st)
  • 17.0 (14th)
  • 36.8 (2nd)
  • 32.7 (3rd)

That marks 26+ PPR FPs in 13 of 16 games (81%) and a Top-4 Fantasy RB Finish in 11 of 16 (69%, nice).

The best part? McCaffrey hasn’t had a Top-15 matchup all season, and he’s still averaging over 32 FPs per game.

Sunday, he gets his first “green light” opponent against a Packers team surrendering the 6th most FPs to RBs. Green Bay has allowed the third-most rushing yards (1,036), second-most touchdowns (10) and fifth-most receptions to the running back position this season.

Yes, McCaffrey’s high price tag will force some ugly creatures into your lineups. (For the record, I love guys like Ronald Jones ($4300), Kareem Hunt ($3000), Alex Erickson ($3900), Ted Ginn ($3700). 

Sure, McCaffrey’s ownership is likely to be above 25%. Still, he’s about to toss up 40+ FPs, and will be a must-start for any shot at winning a big tournament.
