FantasyPros
Davis disappointed in week seven, but he's still seeing the clear majority of the touches in this backfield. Against the Falcons defense, Davis worth firing up as a low-end RB1 yet again.Smith disappointed in week seven, but he came extremely close to hauling in an end zone target. With Davis, Humphries, and Brown all on the field, there's reason to be concerned about Smith's involvement in this offense moving forward, but it's not enough to pull him from your starting lineup. The Titans should look to rectify their mistake from last week and work to get the ball in Jonnu's hands in this plus matchup. Keep plugging Smith into your lineup as a solid mid-range TE1 with upside.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.In the two games where every wide receiver was healthy, Smith has seen 11 of the team's 73 targets for a relatively weak 15.1 percent target share. That's not ideal, even if Smith has been hyper efficient with his targets. The good news about a potential bounce-back is that teams have targeted their tight ends 25.7 percent of the time against the Bengals this year (3rd-most in NFL), which bodes extremely well for his floor. They've played seven games and have allowed seven top-15 tight end performances, including two of them last week to the Browns tight ends, as Harrison Bryant and David Njoku combined for six catches, 76 yards, and three touchdowns. They've allowed 480 yards to the tight end position, which ranks as the third-most in the NFL. Smith should be back in lineups as a rock-solid TE1 this week who should get back on track.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Falcons are 15th against fantasy running backs, but Davis had 25 fantasy points the last time he played the Falcons. Davis should be an upside RB1.Smith laid en egg with one reception for nine yards last week against a tough Steelers D. He should rebound against the Bengals 31st ranked fantasy tight end defense.
