 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.
Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
Gordon nearly reached 100 receiving yards last week, and now has at least 70 yards or a touchdown in six of his last seven games. Gordon hasn't displayed the WR1 upside that fantasy owners were hoping for, but he is a very solid WR2 option this week in what projects to be a high-scoring affair in Pittsburgh. 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
PIT has not allowed WR TD in 3 of last 5, but this should be a high scoring affairDAL has allowed one rush TD and no 70 yard RB in last 5
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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Gordon should have WR2 value against a Steelers D that has been struggling in recent weeks. Dallas is 5th against fantasy running backs, Mack is a low-upside flex option this week.
