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.Despite all the quarterback changes and inconsistencies in this Cowboys offense, Cooper has managed to post at least five catches and 67 yards in 8-of-10 games. He's lacking that top-five upside he had with Dak Prescott under center, but he's still a very usable WR2. The Vikings matchup was a great one for the Cowboys, who target their receivers heavily, but the matchup against Washington hasn't been nearly as kind to receivers. Cooper has a touchdown issue to begin with, so when you add in that they've allowed just six wide receiver touchdowns all year, it's an issue for his projected ceiling. As a team, they've seen just 17.8 wide receiver targets per game, and that's led them to allow the second-fewest fantasy points per game to the position. It's worth noting that Cooper caught 7-of-7 targets for 80 yards the last time they played in a game the Cowboys threw for just 114 yards. He accounted for 63.6 percent of the receptions and 70.2 percent of the yards. That's not going to happen again, but it's clear Cooper can beat their cornerbacks. The problem is ceiling, as Washington has allowed just three top-20 wide receivers this year, and each of them saw at least nine targets. He's the best play on the Cowboys, but he's still stuck in high-end WR3 territory.

CMC is not expected to play this week, which puts Mike Davis on the RB1 bubble against the Vikings 16th ranked fantasy RB defense.The Football Team is 2nd against fantasy wide receivers and Cooper had only 12 fantasy points the last time they played. Cooper is a low-upside WR3 playing with Andy Dalton in a tough matchup.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Cooper was a low-end WR2 in my rankings last week and that's likely where he's going to land again in week 12. He put together a solid performance in week 11 and was a few yards away from finding the end zone on one of his six receptions. This is a tougher matchup for opposing WRs, but Cooper should be viewed as a solid start here.
