Week 17 vs. New Orleans Saints
Mike Davis has had a quality season filling in for Christian McCaffrey with 642 rushing yards, 373 receiving yards and eight touchdowns. He had just 28 yards last week against Washington, but found the end zone for the fourth time in five games. Davis is splitting work with Rodney Davis over the second half of the season, but still seems to be the main guy when McCaffrey sits.
With McCaffrey likely out again, Davis should see double-digit touches against the Saints. It’s not a great matchup, however, with New Orleans ranking second in aFPA to opposing running backs. If McCaffrey plays, sit Davis, but assuming he’s out once again, Davis should be a fringe RB2 option, with quality touches, but a tough matchup.
Update: It looks like Rodney Smith will be filling in with Davis injured. This is a bad matchup, and looks like a place to stay away from for fantasy owners.
