Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Gaffney was drafted in the sixth round out of Stanford, after rushing for 1,709 yards and 21 touchdowns last season. At 5-11, 220, he figures to fit in well with the Panthers' power running game, although proven backs like DeAngelo Williams, Jonathan Stewart, and Mike Tolbert should consume the bulk of Carolina's carries. Additionally, with Stanford on the quarter system, Gaffney will be forced to miss some voluntary offseason workouts until he completes classes.
The Panthers selected Gaffney in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft, 204th overall.

2014

Gaffney was drafted by the Panthers in the sixth round out of Stanford, after rushing for 1,709 yards and 21 touchdowns last season. The 5-11, 220-pouder sustained a season-ending torn lateral meniscus in training camp, which led to him being waived by Carolina, but the Patriots claimed him and are evidently prepared to stash him on their roster this season. With Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and Brandon Bolden all in the final year of their contracts, Gaffney -- assuming he is indeed retained by the Patriots -- would then be in line to push for a roster spot with the team next season.
