Panthers believe in RB Mike Davis

Mike Davis is first up.

Davis, 27, was signed by general manager Marty Hurney in November after being cut by Chicago. He had only two rushes for 2 yards last season as the former staff under coach Ron Rivera liked Reggie Bonnafon as the backup to Christian McCaffrey, who played almost 94% of the snaps.

New coach Rhule has been high on Davis, though, saying the 2015 fourth-round pick out of South Carolina had one of the best training camps of anybody. As recently as last week, after McCaffrey played 97% of the snaps in the opener, Rhule said he wanted to get Davis more playing time.

Fantasy Impact: 

It looks like Davis will get more playing time as McCaffrey is expected to miss a couple of weeks. As the story said, Davis is capable. He has 10 career starts, including six for Seattle in 2017, when he rushed for 240 yards on 68 carries and caught 15 passes for 131 yards. If the team is in fact high on Davis, it could mean they are out on a free agent like Devonta Freeman, who is visiting the Giants today. Davis looks to be a must-add off the wire this week.
