Luke McCaffrey

Wide ReceiverWR
2023 Fantasy Outlook
In the end, it turns out that McCaffrey was miscast as a quarterback. He struggled at that position with Nebraska, and even with Rice when he dropped down from the Big Ten to Conference USA. The Owls moved McCaffrey to receiver for the 2022 season, the position that made his dad Ed a success at the NFL level. His son was no slouch at the position either, catching 58 passes for 723 yards and six touchdowns and added 148 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries for good measure. That is with McCaffrey missing two games as well. For 2023, another faded top prospect is joining McCaffrey on the Owls as they make the move to the AAC. JT Daniels is now Rice's top quarterback. While he never found his footing at the blue-blood programs he played for, with all due respect to Rice's 2022 quarterback TJ McMahon, McMahon is no Daniels. McCaffrey legitimately seems like he could be one of the top receivers in the AAC in 2023. Read Past Outlooks

McCaffrey tallied three receptions (on 10 targets) for 29 yards and one touchdown during Tuesday's 45-21 defeat versus Texas State.
ANALYSIS
McCaffrey has one of the lowest receiving yards total of the season but did find the end zone for his thirteenth touchdown of the year The redshirt junior wide receiver closes out the 2023 campaign with 71 receptions for 992 yards and 13 touchdowns. He is likely set to return for his final year of eligibility as the No. 1 threat for the Rice offense.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Not every McCaffrey brother can have it as easy as Christian did. Luke did not work out at Nebraska, and originally committed to transferring to Louisville. Then, he decided against that and has landed at Rice. While he'll be in the running of the starting job, don't just hand it to him because of his name. Mike Collins looked good when healthy for the Owls in 2020, and he should give McCaffrey a real run for his money for the starting quarterback role at Rice. When you finish a season throwing one touchdown versus six interceptions, you have to earn trust on the field.
