Ryan Mathews @ Raiders -

After missing the team's latest contest against the Packers, it appears Ryan Mathews is on schedule to play in Thursday's matchup against the Raiders, despite recovering from a groin injury. 

When on the field, Mathews has played at a RB-1 level in PPR leagues, but staying healthy has been a problem for the former 2010 first-round pick out of Fresno State.

Still, if Mathews is in the lineup, he should be considered a must-start especially when you look at the numbers Willis McGahee posted against this defense a few days ago. 

Expect Mike Tolbert to be active in the running game as well, but Mathews should have no problem totaling over 125 yards in this game.

Rashard Mendenhall @ Bengals -

This has been a disappointing year for Rashard Mendenhall owners, but he’s still playing at a level that is worthy of having him in your lineup. 

While the Bengals have a solid defense, Mendenhall shouldn’t have a problem running for up to 75 yards and scoring a touchdown.

Cincinnati will have to account for the Steelers' passing attack, and with so many weapons, it should open things up for Mendenhall on the ground.
