CAR has allowed a rush TD in 5 straight and 6 of 7. CLE has allowed two rush TDs to RBs in 3 of last 5
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Kamara has totaled 257 yards and no touchdowns in the last three middling games. He'll look to awaken from this funk against the Panthers, who have permitted the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game (15.7) to opposing running backs. Perhaps he'd fall closer to the bottom of Week 15's top 10 if the position wasn't inflicted with so many notable losses. He has gathered eight of his NFL-high 61 red-zone touches during his mini-slump, so there's too much week-winning upside to worry outside of DFS cash contests.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Carolina is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Kamara is a matchup proof RB1 at home. Cleveland is just 28th against fantasy running backs, Lindsay should have RB1 value this week at home.
