25-Year-Old Running BackRB
Carolina Panthers
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The undrafted rookie out of Louisville barely made it onto the field in his first NFL season last year as Christian McCaffrey sucked up as many touches as he could handle. But Bonnafon produced one highlight - a 59-yard touchdown run against a weary Jaguars defense late in Week 5. That play accounted for more than half his season rushing yards, however. A dual-threat QB in high school, Bonnafon lined up at wide receiver for one collegiate season before converting to running back fulltime after Lamar Jackson arrived on campus, so his vision and instincts out of the backfield are still rudimentary. He does have breakaway speed, good hands and strong overall athleticism, traits that made him a valuable special-teams player as well as a very occasional big-play threat. Bonnafon's main competition for the No. 2 job in Carolina comes from journeyman Mike Davis, but unless McCaffrey buckles under another huge workload, snaps for any other back will be hard to come by.

Could compete for No. 2 role
RBCarolina Panthers
April 21, 2021
Bonnafon (ankle) should get the opportunity to compete for the backup role behind Christian McCaffrey during the Panthers' offseason program and training camp, Rushil Vashee of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
As Carolina's roster stands ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft, Bonnafon appears set to compete with Rodney Smith and Trenton Cannon for the top backup gig. An ankle injury limited Bonnafon to just two appearances last season, but with a full offseason to get healthy and continue his development, the 25-year-old could earn a more notable role in Year 3. Of course, the Panthers may still add another rookie back to challenge for the top understudy role behind McCaffrey.
