Always a threat to take one to the house, Barkley secured his fourth straight 100-yard rushing outing with a 78-yard touchdown against Washington, which hasn't allowed as many rushing yards in six separate games. His seven-game streak to drawing 20 touches only snapped (18) because the Giants took their foot off the accelerator after gaining an insurmountable 40-0 lead. He may receive closer to 30 touches against the Titans with Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) missing another game. The transcendent rookie is an easy top-five choice despite his opponent yielding the fourth-fewest fantasy points (14.8 per game) to running backs.Thomas has gone three games without a touchdown and nine of his last 10 games without reaching 100 yards. His luck could change, as the Panthers have allowed 90 yards and a touchdown to six receivers in the last five games. New Orleans's top wideout maintains a stellar 28.4 percent target share and 86.4 percent catch rate. The season's WR4 is a top-shelf play even if September's earth-shattering upside has dissipated.

Titans second best vs opposing RBs in Fantasy, but Barkley may be best in league right nowPanthers have allowed two TDs to opposing WRs in 4 of past 6
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Barkley is the leading fantasy running back over the last 4 weeks and he should continue to have RB1 value, even against a tough Titans D. Carolina is just 24th against fantasy wide receivers, Thomas should have a monster game this week.
