Fantasy Alert: Christian McCaffrey Scores Receiving, Rushing, Passing TDs; First Player Since 2005 To Accomplish Triple Crown

Star running back Christian McCaffrey just scored his first touchdown as a San Francisco 49er … just not how fans expected.


In his second game with the Niners since getting shipped out of Carolina, McCaffrey helped put SF on the scoreboard against the divisional-rival Rams with a 34-yard passing touchdown to wideout Brandon Aiyuk. The trick play had So-Fi Stadium fooled.

It was an absolute dime by CMC: showcasing that the Pro Bowl runner can really do it all.

Running, receiving and now throwing pinpoint passes.


CMC didn’t stop there. He later tallied a receiving and rushing touchdown to complete the Triple Crown — becoming the first player since 2005 (LaDanian Tomlinson, San Diego Chargers) to score a rushing, receiving and passing touchdown in a single game.

San Francisco looks to extend its regular-season winning record against Sean McVay’s Rams to eight straight.

Fantasy football managers were pumped to see the CMC-SF trade already pay dividends.
