Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 204 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries in the school's 41-17 win over Rice.

McCaffrey added another 23 receiving yards and a touchdown on two catches. Over the past five games, McCaffrey's lowest offensive yardage output was the 187 against Oregon... on just 22 touches. He has been the dominant player we all expected in that span. McCaffrey could be playing his final collegiate game in the next few weeks. It is much watch television.

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey was stupendous in Saturday's 45-31 win over Cal, rushing for 284 yards and three touchdowns on 31 carries.

All three of McCaffrey's scores came in the second half, highlighted by a 90-yard touchdown dash several minutes after the third quarter commenced. The 6-foot, 202-pound junior averaged 9.1 YPC in the victory. He has been nothing short of majestic down the 2016 stretch, posting four consecutive games of at least 135 yards rushing. For the season as a whole, he has picked his way to 1,392 yards and 12 touchdowns. In addition, he has caught 36 passes for 294 yards and two scores.

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 135 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries in Saturday's 52-27 win over Oregon.

McCaffrey scored two of his three touchdowns in the first quarter, including a there-he-goes glide of 61 yards in which he accelerated to the right and forced one would-be backside tackler to capture nothing but air. Free of that obstacle, he zoomed into the end zone untouched. McCaffrey has now rushed for at least 165 yards in each of his last three games. Stanford sits at 7-3 overall and wraps up the regular season with games against Cal and Rice. It would not be a surprise if McCaffrey surpassed 200 yards rushing in either or both of those contests.

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB Keller Chryst completed 10-of-17 passes for 60 yards in Saturday's 26-15 win over Oregon State.

Ryan Burns, Keller Chryst, it really doesn't seem to matter. Stanford's passing offense is one of the worst in the country. Chryst should be able to post stronger results in cotton-soft November match-ups against Oregon, Cal and Rice to close the season, but look elsewhere for fantasy fun until he has shown that he has something to offer.
Nov 5 - 7:42 PM

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 199 yards and a touchdown on 32 carries in Saturday's 26-15 win over Oregon State.

Splendid work here. McCaffrey set a season-high with his 199 yards on the ground. Included in that yardage bushel, a long run of 51 yards. His touchdown came from one yard out near the end of the third quarter. If we were to throw shade at any part of his performance on Saturday, we would do so in the receiving department. The 6-foot, 202-pounder logged just two catches for six yards in the win. That aside, strong work by McCaffrey. He has now rushed for 368 yards and three touchdowns in his last two games.
Nov 5 - 7:09 PM

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey said that redshirt sophomore QB Keller Chryst "did awesome" in Saturday's 34-10 win over Arizona.

"The thing I love so much is his leadership in the huddle. The guy’s a ballplayer. At the end of the day," McCaffrey said, "he’s going to find a way to get the job done. I’m excited to see what the future holds as well." This is all well and good, though Chryst's actual stats in Saturday's game -- 14-of-30 passing for 104 yards, two touchdowns and an interception -- are a bit more pedestrian than McCaffrey's glowing praise might indicate. To be fair to the redshirt sophomore quarterback, this was his first start with the Cardinal and HC David Shaw almost certainly dialed back the playbook by degrees. He figures to take on more responsibility against Oregon State this coming weekend. Fantasy owners need not scour the waiver wire on this one immediately, but keep an eye on Chryst. Stanford finishes out the year with contests against Oregon, Cal and Rice and should he acclimate well to the starting job, all three of those games offer cushy defensive match-ups.
Oct 31 - 12:40 PM

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey rushed for 169 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 34-10 win over Arizona.

McCaffrey also chipped in with four catches for 27 yards and a score. Prior to Saturday's 169-yard showing, the 6-foot, 202-pound junior had not cracked the century mark since September 24, against UCLA. For the season as a whole, McCaffrey has now rushed for 774 yards and five touchdowns. He will have four more games to pad out those numbers, as Stanford closes out the campaign with contests against Oregon State, Oregon, Cal and Rice. All of those are delectable fantasy match-ups.
Oct 30 - 12:45 PM

Stanford junior CB Alijah Holder (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the 2016 season.

"We just can't get it right," said HC David Shaw of, well, everything. Holder played against Colorado on Saturday after sitting out three contests to nurse a shoulder injury, but he was only able to play one half of that game before being lifted from action due to lingering concern over his injury. The 6-foot-2, 186-pound junior finishes the 2016 campaign having registered 10 tackles (1.0 for loss) and a forced fumble over the course of four games played.
Oct 25 - 6:04 PM

Stanford redshirt junior QB Ryan Burns has been demoted to backup in favor of redshirt sophomore QB Keller Chryst.

Burns started the first seven games of the season. In that space, he managed to throw for just 1,065 yards (62.7% completions) with a 5/7 TD/INT ratio. Said HC David Shaw of this week's benching, "If we were running for 250 yards a game, and the quarterback had all day to throw, and our wide receivers were making phenomenal catches, it would be really easy ... That's why you feel really bad for Ryan. You won't find a more improved player over the last calendar year."

Stanford redshirt sophomore QB Keller Chryst has replaced redshirt junior QB Ryan Burns as starter.

Burns proved lethally ineffective in seven games as Cardinal starter. HC David Shaw indicated that he believes there is a disparity between the offensive talent on the team and the results to date. "We should be able to score points with the personnel we have on the offensive side. That's the bottom line here," Shaw said. Stanford is averaging just 17 points per game, placing them as the third-worst team in the FBS. Only South Carolina and Buffalo are scoring fewer points on average. In parts of seven games this season, Chryst has completed 7-of-18 passes for 63 yards and an interception. The 6-foot-5, 228-pounder ranked as a four-star recruit in the 2014 class, with Rivals pegging him as the No. 64 overall prospect for that cycle. There is talent here -- indeed, Chryst was considered the front-runner to start this season until Burns won the job in August -- but we don't recommend those in traditional fantasy formats claim him this week given Stanford's offensive issues.

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey ran for 92 yards on 21 carries in Saturday's 10-5 loss against Colorado.

He added two catches for 27 yards. McCaffrey returned to the field after missing the Notre Dame game with an undisclosed injury (HC David Shaw would only say he was "banged up" against Washington State a few weeks ago). Either way, C-Mac couldn't beat the Buffs by himself. The results are in, and Ryan Burns isn't the upper-tier Power 5 quarterback Stanford thought he was. It's time for the 4-3 Cardinal to consider a change at starting quarterback. If that doesn't happen, McCaffrey can get used to eight- or nine-man boxes each down until he declares for the draft.
Oct 22 - 6:03 PM

Stanford junior CB Alijah Holder will return to the field against Colorado.

Holder missed the last three games. Colorado's starting quarterback Sefo Liufau returned to the field in the last game, so Holder will likely be tested.
Oct 22 - 2:06 PM

Stanford junior RB Christian McCaffrey is expected to play against Colorado, according to Bruce Feldman.

McCaffrey is dealing with an undisclosed injury after getting "banged up" in the game against Washington State a few weeks ago. McCaffrey missed the last contest versus Notre Dame. Stanford is currently 4-2 on the season, with Colorado at 5-2. The Buffaloes are one of the most surprising teams around the country.
Oct 22 - 1:32 PM

Stanford junior CB Alijah Holder was upgraded to "questionable" status this week for the Colorado game.

Holder has missed three straight games. The other half of Stanford's outstanding CB duo along with corner Quenton Meeks, Holder had been termed "doubtful" leading into the Notre Dame game. He missed that one, but has better odds this time around.

Oct 20 - 7:37 PM

Stanford coach David Shaw says junior FB Daniel Marx will miss his fourth straight game on Saturday against Colorado.

Health issues are nothing new for Marx, who missed the end of last season with a lower leg injury. His absence remains extremely problematic for the once-powerful Cardinal rushing attack, which relies upon bruising battering rams to open holes for its star runners.
