Reggie Bonnafon Fantasy Football News 2020

The Panthers have released RB Reggie Bonnafon. That's not a big move, but it positions RB Mike Davis #2 on the depth chart behind Christian McCaffrey. No player would come close to approximating McCaffrey's scoring should the starter go down, but Davis brings a much better record of production than Bonnafon and would at least be worth rostering in that circumstance.

ESPN's David Newton believes RB Mike Davis "might have the edge" for the Panthers' #2 RB job. His competition is Reggie Bonnafon and Jordan Scarlett. The battle is irrelevant as long as RB Christian McCaffrey is healthy, of course. We wouldn't bother spending a pick to "handcuff" CMC at this point.

The Panthers claimed RB Mike Davis off waivers. He's obviously no threat to Christian McCaffrey, but Davis might be the favorite for touches over Reggie Bonnafon if McCaffrey goes down.

Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey missed Wednesday's practice and was listed on the injury report with a back. He was sidelined late in last week's win over the Jaguars with what was reported as cramps, but it looks like there might be more to it. We'll get another update on CMC tomorrow. RB Reggie Bonnafon is his handcuff.
