He had brutal matchups each of the last two weeks against the Bears and Saints, and while he was able to sneak in a touchdown against the Bears, he wasn't as fortunate against the Saints. I wouldn't be too worried, as he totaled 12 of the 13 available touches to Panthers running backs. Here's a pretty crazy stat: Despite not taking over the starting job until Week 3, Davis has broken the most tackles (35) in the NFL. He's also sitting there as the No. 9 running back in PPR formats. As long as McCaffrey is out (this might be the last game), Davis needs to be played. Most people see the matchup against the Falcons and think of a slot machine that just delivers fantasy points. While it is for most positions, not many have realized they've allowed the fifth-fewest yards per carry (3.53) to running backs through seven games. Where Davis will make his mark, however, is through the air, as the Falcons have allowed a league-leading 110.0 PPR points through the air alone to running backs, which amounts to 15.7 PPR points per game. We saw Davis take advantage of that back in Week 5 when he tallied nine receptions for 60 yards and a touchdown against them. The 89 yards he rushed for was also the highest total the Falcons have allowed this year. It's possible that the workhorse is wearing on Davis and starting to affect his efficiency, but I'll blame the matchups for much of it. Get him back into lineups as a rock-solid RB1 this week.
