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
Facing the Ravens on the road is as tough as it gets for Brees. Baltimore tops the NFL in opposing completion percentage (55.6), yards per attempt (6.0), and sacks (26) after accumulating 11 against Marcus Mariota. The Jaguars have allowed just one fewer passer yard. He didn't throw a touchdown in his only outdoor game so far (Week 4 at NYG), so temper expectations and stay away in DFS. Sitting Brees for a streamer such as the opposing Joe Flacco, however, is too bold for this writer's comfort. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Ravens allow the fewest points to fantasy quarterbacks, but it is hard to bet against Brees coming off his bye week against any opponent. 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.
