The Carolina Panthers agreed to trade their star running back, Christian McCaffrey, to the San Fransisco 49ers on Thursday evening.
In return the Panthers will receive the following picks: 2nd, 3rd, 4th round picks for 2023, and a 5th round pick in 2024.

This trade should also really help out Jimmy Garoppolo. McCaffrey will provide Jimmy G with another reliable pass catcher. We expect Garoppolo’s fantasy value to greatly increase.
