Carolina Panthers superstar Christian McCaffrey has joined some very elite company after an incredible season.

McCaffrey, who was a star at Stanford, is officially the third player in NFL history to have 1,000 rushing and 1,000 receiving yards in the same season after ending the season with a loss to the Saints.

The previous two people to do it were Marshall Faulk and Roger Craig. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

McCaffrey also had 19 total receiving and rushing touchdowns this season. The man isn’t an NFL running back.

He’s an absolute freak of nature.

I think there’s a really good argument to be made that McCaffrey might be the most dynamic player in the NFL over the past 20 years.

He can catch it, he can return kicks, and he’s obviously an unbelievable runner. Most players are lucky if they can do one of those three things.

McCaffrey can do just about anything on the field, and he does it all at an insanely high level.

On top of all of that, he comes off as a super nice guy, which makes him super easy to cheer for. You always like to see good people succeed, and that’s a great way to sum up McCaffrey’s situation.

I can’t wait to see what he continues to do in the NFL. My guess is his domination won’t slow down anytime soon.
