Sammuel had only 8 fantasy points the last time these teams met in Week 3, but he was not being used in the running game at that point like he has been to close the season. Samuel is one of the most explosive players in the league and a big fantasy day waiting to happen.The Titans were 2nd against fantasy running backs, but Mixon has been one of the best fantasy backs in the league and he is always a threat to have a big fantasy day.
