FantasyPros
 The Bengals went much more run-heavy than usual with Finley under center, as Mixon racked-up a massive 30 carries in Week 10. That was the first time he'd totaled more than 19 carries in a game this season. The hope was that Mixon would be more involved in the passing game with Finley, but he tallied just two receptions and ran just 14 pass routes, though it was double that of Giovani Bernard (7). Over the first eight games, Bernard ran 134 routes to Mixon's 123. The Raiders have had the perception of being a bad run defense, though that's not the case this year. Sure, Melvin Gordon was able to post 108 yards and a touchdown, but that's just a small sample. On the year, the Raiders have allowed just 4.05 yards per carry and four rushing touchdowns, which are both below the league average. The reason their overall numbers are inflated are due to the five receiving touchdowns they've allowed. While some may view that as a weakness - it may be - there's been just two running backs who've totaled more than four receptions and none who've totaled more than 48 receiving yards. What that suggests is that the touchdowns are a bit fluky and due for regression. We can't assume that Mixon is heavily involved in the passing game just yet, though we've taken a step in the right direction. This isn't a must-avoid matchup, but it's also not as great of a matchup as some think. Mixon belongs in the high-end RB3 conversation.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Chiefs are 31st against fantasy running backs, Gordon is starting to return to his 2018 form and he should be a great RB1 option at home.The Raiders are 20th against fantasy running backs, Mixon is a RB2 on the road coming off his best rushing game of the season.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
The change in offensive scheme for the Chargers seems to have benefited Gordon massively, as he seems more like his 2018 self, posting 188 rushing yards and three touchdowns over the past two weeks. You can start him with confidence moving forward.Out of nowhere, Mixon racked up 30 carries for 114 yards against the Ravens in a blowout loss in Week 10. Mixon is still nothing more than a very talented running back stuck behind a below-average line and on a generally ineffective offense. He's a low RB2 or FLEX in Week 11 and likely moving forward.
