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.Drake provided fantasy owners a handful of solid weeks in a row toward the middle of the season, but Miami has given him fewer than 10 touches in back to back weeks now and you won't want to start a player like that versus the Viking's lock-down defense.
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.Drake did just about nothing last week against New England until he took a hook-and-ladder 55 yards for a game-winning touchdown on the final play. The game epitomized Drake's boom-or-bust season to a tee, but he remains a very difficult player to trust in your fantasy lineup with your season on the line. His matchup this week is bad on paper, but it actually suits Drake more than it does Frank Gore -- Minnesota shuts down the run but does give up more than 50 receiving yards to running backs per game. Consider Drake a boom-or-bust RB3/flex option, like he is most weeks.

DAL has allowed one rush TD and no 70 yard RB in last 5Unreliable but explosive, a risk with upside in all matchups
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
Dallas is 5th against fantasy running backs, Mack is a low-upside flex option this week.
