Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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 only wide receivers who've seen 40-plus targets and averaged more fantasy points per target than Claypool are Justin Jefferson, D.K. Metcalf, Tyreek Hill, and Adam Thielen. He's seen eight-plus targets in each of his last four games and has finished with at least 14.9 PPR points in each of them. Will Jimmy Smith be back for the Ravens? His loss is a major one, as he's allowed just 0.90 PPR points per target thrown his way, which is easily the lowest mark in the NFL. It's always interesting to see a team that targets their receivers as much as the Steelers do, go up against a team like the Ravens, who've faced a wide receiver target on just 53.8 percent of attempts (third-lowest percentage in NFL). The Ravens have allowed just five wide receiver touchdowns all season. They've also allowed a minuscule 11.92 yards per reception to them, so this matchup actually benefits Johnson's role more than it does Claypool's. If he doesn't score in this game, it could be a disappointing one, and the Ravens have allowed a touchdown just once every 38.4 targets to wide receivers, which makes them the toughest team in the NFL to score against. You're still starting him, as it does seem less than likely that Jimmy Smith plays but understand it's a tough matchup. He should be considered a low-end WR2/high-end WR3.

CMC is not expected to play this week, which puts Mike Davis on the RB1 bubble against the Vikings 16th ranked fantasy RB defense.Claypool has had a couple good fantasy games after he slowed a bit, thanks to 3 TDs in his last 2 games. He is a boom / bust WR3 against the Ravens 4th ranked fantasy WR defense.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Claypool wasn't targeted as much as he has been in previous weeks, but he found the end zone¬†yet again. He's having one of the best rookie WR seasons ever and he has been one of the most consistent fantasy options out there. Even in a tough matchup, Claypool belongs in your lineup as a low-end WR2.
