I Garrett, Fournette and McCaffrey are really interesting.

McCaffrey is going to get catch 70-90 balls for Carolina, but I’m not sure he’ll get more than 100 carries. So while he may have tremendous production from scrimmage (1000+ yards seems very possible) he’s not going to have a lot of scoring chances. That six is dangled out there as an achievable number, but it’s a TRAP. The 1,000 total seems more achievable. The ballsy middle play is to bet the over on yardage and the under on touchdowns.

Garrett will be on an underrated Cleveland DL. So six sacks seems achievable, if not probable. The problem is that if the Cleveland offense is bad again, they’re going to play from behind a lot. That’s not conducive to getting pass rush opportunities. Another TRAP.
