It's kind of funny that despite not finding the end zone, McCaffrey still outscored all running backs in Week 11. He's now finished as a top-eight running back in 9-of-10 games this year, and even going back to last year, he's been the RB9 or better in 17 of his last 19 games. He's breaking fantasy football. This will be one of his biggest tests of the year, however, as the Saints are as good of a run defense that you'll see. After allowing just 3.22 yards per carry last year, they've allowed just 3.69 yards per carry this year, and that mark is closer to 3.22 if you removed the week they were without David Onyemata and Sheldon Rankins. No running back has rushed for more than 83 yards against them this year, and they've allowed just three rushing touchdowns on 167 carries. The 61.6 rushing yards per game they're allowing to running backs is the lowest mark in the league, while only the Patriots have allowed fewer rushing touchdowns. It was a similar defense last year when McCaffrey totaled 53 yards on 15 carries with eight catches for 67 yards en route to the RB8 finish. If there were one week to potentially fade McCaffrey in DFS, this would be it. While I'll likely regret saying that, it just feels there are safer options for much less money.He wasn't happy after the Week 11 loss to the Colts where he totaled a season-low eight carries. He did see seven targets from Foles, though we can't forget he threw the ball a massive 47 times in that game. The Titans are the team that held Fournette to -4 yards on 14 carries most of the game but allowed one 69-yard run late in the game that propped up his overall numbers. The Titans are also expected to get defensive tackle Jurrell Casey back from his shoulder injury after he's missed the last two games. They still may be without linebacker Jayon Brown, which would definitely be a boost to Fournette. It's not a great matchup for him, though. They Titans have held all but one running back (Christian McCaffrey) to 82 or less yards on the ground, and that's despite eight running backs totaling 14-plus carries. The 5.95 yards per target they've allowed isn't anything to attack either, and again, we've already seen Fournette total just 26 yards on the six receptions against them in Week 3. The only two running backs who've finished as RB1s against them were McCaffrey (duh) and Austin Ekeler, who caught seven passes for 118 yards and a touchdown. It seems like it'll be difficult for Fournette to get in that conversation. If you're hoping for him to end his touchdown drought, that'll be tough too, as the Titans have allowed just 12 rushing touchdowns in 26 games under Mike Vrabel, which is the fourth-fewest in the league over that time. You're playing him in season-long leagues but he's not a great DFS play.

FantasyPros
The Saints are 4th against fantasy running backs, but McCaffrey should still be an elite RB1.Tennessee is 14th against fantasy backs, Fournette is a low-end RB1 against a Titans D coming off a bye this week.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
In last week's "bad" performance, CMC totaled 11 catches and 25 fantasy points. Since he gets the ball in various ways, he is the safest player in fantasy. Likely playing from behind again this week, expect CMC to total close to double-digit catches yet again. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 Even with Nick Foles returning, Leonard Fournette was still heavily involved in the passing game, recording seven receptions on seven targets. He is still a low-end RB1 due to his high floor and constant involvement in the Jags offense.
