In the first game without Christian McCaffrey, the Panthers gave Davis 22 of the 24 running back opportunities, so it's fair to say he's the workhorse until further notice. He wasn't particularly efficient on the ground, but it was a tough matchup against the Chargers, and he made up for that while catching eight balls (for the second straight week) for 45 yards and a touchdown. It's a much better matchup this week, and one that actually suits his role quite well. The Cardinals have allowed 10.1 yards per target to running backs over the first three weeks, which ranks as the second-most in the league. The 2.26 PPR points per target they've allowed also ranks as the second-most. Knowing Davis has seen 17 targets over the last two weeks, this matchup bodes well for him. The Cardinals have also allowed a respectable 4.36 yards per carry, so it's not like he can't do anything on the ground, either. I'd consider him a stable RB2 this week, particularly in PPR formats.
