Bobby Sylvester

 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
Edelman matched his season-high with 12 targets and nine catches last week in Miami, and now has at least 100 yards or a touchdown in six-of-nine games he's played in. Edelman should again be targeted early and often in the short-to-intermediate range against a Steelers defense that likes to blitz. With a high-scoring, back-and-forth gamescript likely, Edelman is an appealingly high-end WR2 this week.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.

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
Edelman had 9 receptions for 86 yards and a touchdown last week, he should be a WR2 against a Steelers D that struggles with slot wide receivers. Dallas is 5th against fantasy running backs, Mack is a low-upside flex option this week.
