Pacheco Removed from Chiefs’ Injury Report
Chiefs removed Isiah Pacheco (toe/ankle) from the team’s injury report ahead of Sunday’s Super Bowl matchup against the 49ers. Pacheco was never really at risk of missing Sunday’s contest. Despite being listed with two injuries, Pacheco was a full participant and will be good to go. Jerick McKinnon (groin), on the other hand, is listed as questionable.
CMC Named AP 2023 Offensive Player the Year
Christian McCaffrey was named the Associated Press’ 2023 Offensive Player of the Year. It was only a matter of time before San Francisco’s do-it-all back took home an OPOY award. McCaffrey’s first full season with the 49ers couldn’t have gone any better, as he racked up a league-high 1,459 yards on the ground to go with 14 touchdowns and added another 67-564-7 through the air.
During the 2023 season, McCaffrey also set an NFL record when he found the end zone for a 17th consecutive game — a streak that started during the 2022 season. In addition to leading the league in rushing yards, McCaffrey also led the league with 2,023 yards from scrimmage, marking the second time in his career that he’s led the league in scrimmage yards. The unquestioned 1.01 of fantasy drafts will again be on the overall RB1 radar next season as he looks to continue his hot running in Kyle Shanahan’s offense.
