Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
The Bengals got away from feeding Mixon the ball last week, but he still found the end zone and turned in a solid fantasy day. Game script is again a bit of a concern as the Bengals attempt to keep up with the high-flying Chiefs, but Kansas City is still a favorable matchup and Mixon's every-down ability should keep him involved no matter the scoreline.  
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
 McCaffrey suffered his worst performance (20 rushing, 46 receiving yards) in Week 6, but he still played every snap and stockpiled seven receptions. There's no need to panic, but the Eagles rank second in rushing defense despite faltering to Saquon Barkley. The Carolina running back might need to make more happen as a pass-catcher, but high usage preserves his spot near the bottom of Week 7's top-10 running backs.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy running backs, if the Bengals are going to have any chance to win, they must run the ball effectively this week. The Eagles are tied for 27th in receptions allowed to fantasy running backs, but they are 3rd overall against fantasy backs in fantasy points allowed. I expect McCaffrey to be a back-end RB1, thanks to his receiving ability.
