Week 14 marked the 10th missed game for Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey. CMC is not expected to suit up in Week 15, either, against the Green Bay Packers, boosting Mike Davis' fantasy outlook once again.

Christian McCaffrey Fantasy Outlook

It sounds like there is a slight sliver of hope that the star running back will play, but don't count on it. McCaffrey has appeared in just three games for the Panthers this season.

McCaffrey's ridiculous average of 30.1 PPR fantasy points per game would be a major boost for managers who have him rostered during the fantasy playoffs, but they'll likely have to make do without him once again.

Mike Davis Fantasy Outlook

Davis is poised to be Carolina's starting running back on Sunday, as has become the norm this season.

The backup-turned-starter is averaging 18.9 opportunities (13.5 carries plus 5.4 targets) and 81.4 yards from scrimmage in the 10 games without McCaffrey in the lineup this year. In those same 10 games as the starter, Davis has put up a fantastic 16.54 fantasy points per game.

Davis just feasted against the Denver Broncos in Week 14, accounting for 26.30 fantasy points thanks to 2 touchdowns.

The running back will have another mouth-watering matchup in Week 15 against the Packers, who are allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to RBs (28.72) this season. He is almost a sure lock to deliver for fantasy managers this week.
