 Mixon has been limited in practice this week, and while he may play, this seems to be Gio's backfield at the moment, so you would be better off avoiding the headache of seeing your running back total just 8 to 12 touches.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
McCaffrey had 94 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown the last time these teams played. McCaffrey should be low-end RB1 for Week 17. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
McCaffrey disappointed in Week 16 against the Bucs, gaining just 58 total yards. But he saw more rushing attempts than Jonathan Stewart and was far more effective. The Panthers still have an outside chance at the division, so expect them to play hard against Atlanta next weekend. That bodes extremely well for McCaffrey, as the Falcons struggle against pass-catching backs, allowing the most receptions to the position. That should keep McCaffrey as a borderline RB1 in Week 17. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
In a game that means everything to both the Panthers and the Falcons, expect McCaffrey to be used a lot this week. The Falcons continually allow massive yardage through the air to running backs, and now allowed 10 more receptions to them than any other team. This matchup was made for McCaffrey, who burned them for 94 yards and a touchdown the last time they played. At this point, Mixon should be well-rested and ready to rock against the Lions, who have now allowed 14 rushing touchdowns on the season, including 11 of them in their last nine games, which is behind only the Bills. The Bengals have to stay competitive in this game in order for Mixon to have an RB1 ceiling, which could prove to be a chore for them after watching the last two games. Meanwhile, the Lions are in a playoff race and trying to win a wild card berth. If Mixon suits up, you have to play him as a high-end RB2 who should score.
