PHI has allowed RBs to go over 100 rush yards in five straightSaints 4th best vs RBs Fantasy wise, but McCaffrey's versatility keeps him matchup proof here
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Everyone is entitled to a stinker. Gurley's just happened to come at a highly inopportune time for investors who didn't ride the top pick to a Week 14 playoff bye. And to be fair, 58 yards against an elite adversary isn't too terrible for someone's nadir. Those who survived the hiccup are obviously standing by the stud, who now faces an Eagles defense that has allowed 4.9 yards per carry. Five consecutive opposing backs have generated a top-10 output against the sinking defending champions, and the Rams should have little difficulty establishing a lead if Carson Wentz (back) sits on Sunday night. Look for Gurley to extend that streak to six.McCaffrey has eclipsed 100 total yards in six straight games, depositing 21.5 touches per game and 10 touchdowns in the process. While the Saints have surrendered an NFL-low 77.6 rushing yards per contest, they have also permitted averages of 5.4 catches for 41.5 yards to opposing running backs. Yet to miss a single offensive play since Week 9, McCaffrey maintains too high a floor to worry despite the tough matchup. DFS players, on the other hand, should avoid paying a premium price.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Eagles have been a disaster against fantasy running backs over the last 5 weeks, Gurley should rebound from a horrible game in Chicago at home in a favorable matchup. The Saints allow the 3rd fewest points to fantasy running backs, but McCafrrey has been the second highest scoring fantasy running back over the last month. McCaffrey is a matchup proof RB1.
