Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
 Mack is no longer offering anywhere close to the 20 touches per game we saw mid-season. Rather, he has been mediocre for nearly two months now, and a tough matchup versus the Cowboys certainly doesn't help matters. He is a desperate flex play this weekend.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Rams are 12th against fantasy running backs, but QB Nick Foles is expected to start, which makes Adams a dicey flex option. Dallas is 5th against fantasy running backs, Mack is a low-upside flex option this week.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
 Mack struggled to find any running room against Houston's swarming defense last week, but did score. Mack has consistently produced good rushing totals against bad defenses, and bad rushing totals against good ones. In other words, whether he's an RB2 or an RB3/flex really depends on the matchup - consider him the latter for a rough matchup with Dallas this week.
Scott Engel
RotoExperts
LAR have not allowed a rush TD to RBs in 3 straight and game flow could hurt himDAL has allowed one rush TD and no 70 yard RB in last 5
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
After fielding 42 carries in the last two games, Adams settled for seven in Week 14's overtime loss to Dallas while playing two fewer snaps (21) than Darren Sproles. Yet he goes from facing a Cowboys defense yielding 3.6 yards per carry to the Rams and their 5.1 yards allowed per run. He did not forfeit much of Philadelphia's rushing responsibilities; Sproles, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement-who went on the IR with a knee injury-saw one carry apiece last Sunday. That matchup should spawn more dedication to the run, especially if Carson Wentz is sidelined with a back injury. That should mean a return to double-digit handoffs for the rookie. While far from a safe option, he's worth a flex look. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 Mack has now totaled 39 yards or less in four of his last five games and will now play against an ascending Cowboys defense. There's been just three top-12 running backs against them all season and each one of them racked-up at least 23 touches. Mack has 23 touches over the last two weeks combined. The Cowboys only see an average of 18.6 carries and 67.6 rushing yards per game, which both rank as the fourth-fewest in football. They've also allowed just two rushing touchdowns over their last nine games. With Mack seeing no more than two targets in a game since way back in Week 8, he's no longer a must-start. Of the last five Cowboys opponents, none of them have carried the ball more than 18 times, which is a problem for a running back who's not involved in the passing-game and plays just 38-60 percent of the snaps. He should be considered a mediocre RB3 option for this game who likely gets the nudge in a tough start/sit decision because of the offense he plays in.
