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. 
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. 
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.
