Fantasy Football Advice
Zeke has averaged 95+ rushing yards per game over his three year career...with 0.85 TD's per game. He's a safe first round pick this season, even with the off the field issues. He's a massive part of the Cowboys offense, and is heavily involved in the red zone. He also showed last season that he's a capable pass catcher, posting a 77/567/3 stat line in the receiving game. Tony Pollard was drafted to take ease some of that receiving workload, but he's still going to be on the field for most third downs, and I don't expect his numbers to take much of a hit. We can also expect more rushing TD's from him than we saw last season, since he was a bit unlucky in that department. You know what you're getting with Zeke, and the upside is mouthwatering.CMC is going to be a stud yet again this season. The former 4th overall pick now has 187 receptions over his first two seasons, including 107 last season. He also showed that he can produce in the TD department with 13 total TD's. There are two main knocks I have with him. One is the rushing yardage. He's a great RB, but he doesn't have the same sort of rushing yard upside as some of the other RB's do. The second is the TD's. The 13 TD's were great, but 12 of them occured in weeks 7-13. That means that he had just one total TD in weeks 1/2/3/4/5/6/14/15/16. I'm not saying that he can't post more consistend numbers, but I trust the TD production of Kamara and Barkley just a little bit more. With all this being said, the dude is going to have 80+ receptions, and he's going to be involved every aspect of the offense. He needs to be taken in the top 5 of drafts.

It is hard to go wrong if you have a pick in the top four, but among those great running backs, Zeke seems to be the safest this season because he is a durable workhorse behind one of the best offensive lines in football, plus we can expect mostly positive game scripts. Over his career, Zeke averages 2099 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns per 16 games. 
Derek Lofland

Elliott led the NFL in rushing yards last year and he should be an elite fantasy running back again in 2019. The only troubling thing is he had to meet with the commissioner and while a suspension will not happen, it is a reminder that this guy is a bad decision away from being a suspension candidate.McCaffrey was the 3rd ranked running back in fantasy football last year and he is one of the best duel-threat running backs in the NFL.
Kyle Yates
The Fantasy Footballers
The Cowboys are making strides to make their offense more dynamic in 2019 by promoting Kellen Moore to OC. Zeke's the centerpiece of this Cowboys offense and he's always going to be in contention to push the 300 carry mark each season, but will the Cowboys' efforts mean even more scoring opportunities for Zeke in 2019? There's a world where we could look back at the end of the season and be talking about Elliot as the RB1 over Barkley.CMC proved last year that he can be a workhorse back at the NFL level and I expect nothing less from him this season. If Newton's shoulder is completely healed, this Panthers offense has the potential to be dynamic and CMC will be at the center of it. Expect huge reception numbers yet again from McCaffrey!
Brandon Funston

He's the safest justifiable top choice on the board - 12+ PPR FAN PTS in 37 of 40 career games - no non-QB in past 20 years has more in 1st 40 games of a careerThere's been talk that CAR might try to scale back workload after CMC's 326 touches in '18 (finishing as the No. 3 RB in half PPR scoring), but the team certainly hasn't backed up its RB position (CAP and rookie Jordan Scarlett) in a manner that indicates that is truly the plan
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
If you wanted to select Elliott at No. 1 overall, you shouldn't feel guilty or bad about it. In fact, he should probably be the favorite to finish as the top running back considering the lack of competence in the Giants offense. Elliott has played 40 regular season games in his career and delivered RB2 or better numbers in 92.5 percent of those games, which is actually better than Le'Veon Bell's 91.9 percent. Elliott is as safe as they come.McCaffrey blew up in 2018 and it's got everyone reaching for him as a top-three selection in 2019. It's fair and you shouldn't shy away from the three-down back, but you should know that the Panthers have openly talked about scaling back his workload. He's still likely to finish as a top-five option at the position even if he loses 4-6 touches per game, as he's gamescript-proof and it's not as if Cam Newton is rushing for as many touchdowns as he used to.
