Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
The Bengals may not get Joe Mixon back this season. That vaults Giovani Bernard into RB2 territory for the rest of the year, as he's averaged 15.4 half-PPR points per game (PPR) in the games that Mixon has missed. His passing-game usage gives him a steady floor, as he'll find ways to stay involved regardless of the game script. Behind Bernard, look for the Bengals to use Samaje Perine a bit more. They gave him eight touches last week, and on the season, he's gotten just one fewer carry inside the five-yard line than Bernard. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Joe Mixon seems to be trending toward not playing this week, Bernard would be a RB2 against Washington's 11th ranked fantasy RB defense. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
After Mixon got in one limited practice last week, the Bengals shut him down and then announced him inactive before gameday which means he's no lock to return this week, so stay tuned for updates. Bernard struggled to get things going against the Steelers, which was expected, but what wasn't expected was him splitting the workload with Samaje Perine and Trayveon Williams. Bernard saw 15 opportunities while Perine had eight, and Williams had five. Gamescript likely had something to do with that, though it's an added risk to his projection as the perceived workhorse with Mixon out. Outside of a game where they allowed Nick Chubb 108 yards and two touchdowns, Washington hasn't allowed a running back more than 86 yards on the ground and have allowed just three rushing touchdowns in the other eight games. The Bengals have run the ball just 37.1 percent of their plays, and Washington's opponents have averaged just 61.4 plays per game, which doesn't lead to a lot of run plays. When running backs have been targeted in the passing game, they've averaged 1.75 PPR points per target, which ranks as the third-highest number in football, but the odd part is that running backs haven't been targeted much against them, which is why there's been just one running back who's totaled more than three receptions and 30 yards (D'Andre Swift last week). Bernard has seen 16 targets over the last three weeks, so he's clearly a big part of their gameplan in that department. If Mixon misses another game, Bernard should be plugged in as a middling RB2 who isn't likely to win weeks, but he should total 14-plus touches. If Mixon returns, he'll move into high-end RB2 territory as a fresh running back who's ready to roll.And the beat goes on... We're now headed into Week 11 and Kamara has yet to finish worse than the RB13 in half-PPR formats. He's played the Bucs twice, Bears, and 49ers. The guy is just playing on a different level right now. Everyone sees the Falcons on the schedule and thinks, "Jackpot!" though that's not really the case. Of the fantasy points the Falcons have allowed to skill-position players, just 24.9 percent of them have gone to running backs, which is the lowest percentage in the league. Did you know that teams of running backs typically outscore the quarterback in fantasy points per game? Well, if you didn't, you do now. Running backs typically average 5.0 more PPR points per game than quarterbacks, but against the Falcons, quarterbacks average 5.2 more PPR points per game than the running backs. Teams have seemingly realized it's more profitable to move the ball through the air against them, as the Falcons have faced a league-low 17.7 carries per game. They're also one of three teams who've allowed less than four rushing touchdowns. Because of that, they've allowed the fewest fantasy points on the ground to running backs. Read that again because you may have missed it. The Falcons have allowed the fewest fantasy points on the ground to running backs at just 8.4 points per game. Fortunately, for Kamara, they've allowed tons of production through the air. The 12.7 PPR points per game they've allowed to running backs through the air alone ranks as the fifth most in the league. All in all, the Falcons have allowed just 23.6 touches per game to running backs (second-fewest) and have held them to the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game. We know by now that you don't ever consider fading Kamara, no matter the matchup. Start him as an elite RB1 every week. Murray, on the other hand, he's someone whose skill-set does not match up in this game at all, making him a weak touchdown-dependent RB4.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Murray was efficient with his workload this past week, but he's not seeing enough work to be a reliable fantasy option. If you're absolutely desperate, you can plug in Murray into your starting lineup as a bye week fill-in option, but nothing more than that.
