Always a threat to take one to the house, Barkley secured his fourth straight 100-yard rushing outing with a 78-yard touchdown against Washington, which hasn't allowed as many rushing yards in six separate games. His seven-game streak to drawing 20 touches only snapped (18) because the Giants took their foot off the accelerator after gaining an insurmountable 40-0 lead. He may receive closer to 30 touches against the Titans with Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) missing another game. The transcendent rookie is an easy top-five choice despite his opponent yielding the fourth-fewest fantasy points (14.8 per game) to running backs.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.

Titans second best vs opposing RBs in Fantasy, but Barkley may be best in league right nowCAR has allowed a rush TD in 5 straight and 6 of 7.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Barkley is the leading fantasy running back over the last 4 weeks and he should continue to have RB1 value, even against a tough Titans D. Carolina is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Kamara is a matchup proof RB1 at home.
