It's official, we have a timeshare with the Packers running backs, as it's been a 65/35 split over the last two weeks with both of them in the lineup. It does help that the Packers running backs have combined to average 30.3 touches per game, though. It also helps that the Bears offense has been bad enough to allow their opponents running backs to compile 28.6 running back touches per game, which is more than enough to do damage. The downside is that they've allowed the third-fewest points per opportunity to running backs this season and are fresh coming off their bye week. The Bears are also one of just four teams who've still yet to allow a receiving touchdown to a running back. That's been a contributing factor to them allowing just 1.22 PPR points per target to running backs, which ranks as the third-lowest number in the league. The only running back who's cracked 15 PPR points and finished better than the RB15 against the Bears this year was Alvin Kamara, who caught nine balls for 96 yards to go along with his 67 yards on the ground. He was the only running back who's topped four catches or 36 yards through the air against the Bears, too. Despite there being 11 different running backs who've tallied double-digit carries against them, just one running back (Ronald Jones) cracked the century mark, and he didn't even score. Jones is a must-play RB1 every week, but this may not be one of his bigger games. Williams will likely get 8-10 touches, though as we've discussed, they may not be worth a ton, making him a less-than-ideal RB4.With Christian McCaffrey ruled out for another week, it'll be Davis' backfield. We've had to dial back expectations for him after that hot start, as he's failed to crack 66 yards on the ground or 34 yards through the air since Week 5. He's scored just twice since that time, so maybe the workload caught up with him? There have been three running backs who've topped 75 yards on the ground against the Vikings, but all of them totaled 20-plus carries, which is a mark that Davis hasn't gotten to this season. Unfortunately, the Vikings have also limited production through the air to running backs as well, as there's been no running back who's topped 36 yards through the air against them. When you start factoring those things in with Davis' lack of ceiling over the last six weeks, it's a bit problematic. On top of that, the Vikings have allowed just seven total touchdowns to running backs, which ranks as the fifth-fewest in the league. In terms of efficiency, the Vikings have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity to running backs, but the good news is that they've had to face 28.7 running back touches per game. That's where Davis gets his value, as he's locked into 15-plus touches in this game, and maybe 20 of them. Because of that, he belongs in the mid-to-high-end RB2 territory.

The Bears are 9th against fantasy backs, Jones is a low-upside RB1 in a tough home matchup.CMC is not expected to play this week, which puts Mike Davis on the RB1 bubble against the Vikings 16th ranked fantasy RB defense.
