The world is a rough place right now, but if you’re Christian McCaffrey, you’ve got plenty to smile about. The 23-year-old running back signed a four-year, $64 million dollar deal this week with just over $30 million dollars guaranteed. Just think a few years ago, running backs weren’t making $10 million dollars a season. Now, with each passing running back contract, the market gets considerably higher.

The Walsh Way – Week 9 NFL DFS GPP Plays

Kevin Walsh | November 2nd, 2019 

All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. It’s also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups.

Daniel Corrigan | March 4th, 2019

Coming into 2018, the Panthers were three years removed from their Super Bowl loss to the Broncos. They made the playoffs last season but were defeated by the Saints in a great game. There was so much promise going into this season. For a while, it looked like the Panthers could be a contender for the Super Bowl. They ended up missing the playoffs and now their star quarterback has a potentially serious injury.
