Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Davis continues to get the job done with Christian McCaffrey out of the lineup. With CMC out yet again, Davis is a solid RB1 even in a tough matchup on paper.Gibson's usage is a bit concerning moving forward. With Gibson only receiving nine carries and McKissic seeing eight carries in week six, it's enough to pump the brakes on Gibson's fantasy outlook moving forward. Gibson has a fine matchup in front of him, but he can't be trusted as anything more than a low-end RB2 right now if he continues to split the work with McKissic.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's now played in large portions of four games. His finishes in those games (PPR format): RB9, RB7, RB1, and RB20. That's pretty dang good for a waiver wire running back, and it's possible because the Panthers have simply handed Christian McCaffrey's role over to him. It's going to be another tough game for him this week, as the Saints have continually been one of the best in the game at slowing down running backs. No running back has finished better than RB15 against them and they've played Aaron Jones, Josh Jacobs, and Ronald Jones, so it wasn't lack of talent. They rank as the 11th-best team against running backs from an efficiency standpoint, right next to the Bears, who rank 12th. Now, with that being said, they have allowed at least 19.2 PPR points to each of the last four backfields they've played, so knowing that Davis has accounted for 83 percent of the Panthers running back production since McCaffrey went down, he should still offer a stable floor. He may not be a matchup-winner this week, but he should still offer high-end RB2 value. *Update* Davis was wearning a non-contact jersey at Wednesday's practice.Here we go again. Even though it was a neutral gamescript throughout this game, we saw McKissic out-snap Gibson once again 39 to 27. That's going to limit Gibson's upside in lineups, especially if the game goes south, like this one can, though the Cowboys aren't the team they were just two weeks ago. But here's something that's great for Gibson's value: Every single one of the Cowboys opponents has been able to run the ball at least 20 times, and every team has had at least 24 running back touches. They've faced a league-high 28.0 carries per game against them, which is more carries than most teams allow touches to running backs. Over the last five games, Gibson has accounted for 61.1 percent of the team's carries, so we should be able to lock him in for at least 12-15 carries this week with upside for more. Gibson has also received five carries inside the five-yard line over the last five weeks, so he should have a good shot at a touchdown against the Cowboys, who've allowed seven rushing touchdowns through six games. Gibson should offer low-end RB2 value with upside if Washington can keep the game close.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Saints are 14th against fantasy running backs, but Davis is enough of a target in the passing game to still warrant RB1 status.The Cowboys are just 24th against fantasy running backs, Gibson should be a low-end RB2 on an offense that struggles to consistently move the ball.
