Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Mixon has really come on lately, averaging over 89 rushing yards per game over the last six weeks, plus he's scored in three of the last four. He has a very tough matchup against the Patriots, though, and the Bengals may be forced to abandon the run early. Don't expect his hot streak to continue on the same trajectory this week. Mixon is a low RB2. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
At some point, the Bengals just said, "No matter what the scoreboard says, we're giving Mixon 15-plus carries." He's hit that mark in each of the last six games, but even more importantly, he's now seen four targets in each of the last two games. He's run 37 routes in those games, which ranks 17th among running backs, so at least he's been involved there. We'll test the theory of 15-plus carries in every game this week, as the Bengals are double-digit underdogs against the Patriots. Mixon has been handling 88 percent of the team's carries over the last six weeks, which is important considering running backs have averaged just 18.4 carries per game against them, the third-lowest mark in the league. The Patriots have still allowed just one rushing touchdown on the year as well, so it's unlikely a touchdown can bail you out as a Mixon owner. There have been just three running backs who've finished as top-20 options against the Patriots this year, and two of them came in games the Patriots won. Ezekiel Elliott was the only running back on the losing team who finished top-20 against them, and it took him 25 touches in the rain to get there. This isn't a week to get excited about starting Mixon as anything more than a low-end RB2/high-end RB3. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mixon has been playing better to close the season, but the Patriots are the best running back defense in the NFL. Mixon is a low-upside flex option this week.
