Saints 4th best vs RBs Fantasy wise, but McCaffrey's versatility keeps him matchup proof hereCAR has allowed a rush TD in 5 straight and 6 of 7.
Frank Stampfl

Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
McCaffrey has eclipsed 100 total yards in six straight games, depositing 21.5 touches per game and 10 touchdowns in the process. While the Saints have surrendered an NFL-low 77.6 rushing yards per contest, they have also permitted averages of 5.4 catches for 41.5 yards to opposing running backs. Yet to miss a single offensive play since Week 9, McCaffrey maintains too high a floor to worry despite the tough matchup. DFS players, on the other hand, should avoid paying a premium price.Kamara has totaled 257 yards and no touchdowns in the last three middling games. He'll look to awaken from this funk against the Panthers, who have permitted the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game (15.7) to opposing running backs. Perhaps he'd fall closer to the bottom of Week 15's top 10 if the position wasn't inflicted with so many notable losses. He has gathered eight of his NFL-high 61 red-zone touches during his mini-slump, so there's too much week-winning upside to worry outside of DFS cash contests.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Saints allow the 3rd fewest points to fantasy running backs, but McCafrrey has been the second highest scoring fantasy running back over the last month. McCaffrey is a matchup proof RB1. Carolina is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Kamara is a matchup proof RB1 at home.
