Take a second to give yourself a pat on the back if you've made it to the Fantasy Football playoffs during this crazy season. And even if you didn't the playoffs, well, you made it through 2020. I'll never be one of those people who will tweet or DM a professional athlete, talking smack to them about Fantasy sports (and you shouldn't either). But man, Christian McCaffrey burned us this year. I'm sure he wants to be healthy and playing, but it's just been one of those lost seasons for him where injuries just keep snowballing. I finally had the luxury of drafting McCaffrey in two leagues this season, and then 2020 reared it's ugly head.

I've been receiving many questions regarding what to do with Mike Davis this week so let's address that. Since Week 10 without McCaffrey, Davis has played 62% of the snaps for the Panthers, which is a good amount. On top of that, he's seen a 14% target share, also very solid. That would rank top-10 among running backs. What I'm mostly intrigued by, however, is this matchup. Davis faces the Broncos in Week 14, a defense that has been inconsistent against running backs over the past month. They did a decent job against the Dolphins and Chiefs in Weeks 11 and 13 but they were shredded by the Raiders and Saints in Weeks 10 and 12. In those games against the Raiders and Saints, this defense allowed an average of 188.5 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns.

Davis is not McCaffrey, not even close, but I think he's in line for a floor of 15 touches in a pretty good matchup. Especially with the COVID concerns around the Panthers pass catchers, I consider Davis a solid RB2 in Week 14.
