San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey has won his fourth FedEx Ground Player of the Week award this season. The latest honor comes after the 49ers' Thanksgiving victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12. He previously won the award following Weeks 1, 2, and 4.


McCaffrey carried the football 19 times for 114 rushing yards (6.0 average) and two touchdowns while hauling in five passes for 25 yards in the win. He beat out Las Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs and Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams for the award.

FedEx gives fans the opportunity to recognize weekly top-performing quarterbacks and running backs in games played on Thursday through Sunday through the FedEx Air & Ground NFL Players of the Week Awards.

By winning the FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week Award, FedEx will make a $2,000 donation in McCaffrey's name to a Historically Black College or University (HBCU), which will be applied towards needs-based scholarships to deserving HBCU students.
