Fantasy managers that spite-traded Elliott away after his week one performance have to be absolutely kicking themselves right now. Over Zeke's last two games, he is averaging 20.5 rush attempts, 126.5 rushing yards, and one rushing touchdown per game. While he still isn't extremely involved in the receiving game, he was able to reel in an additional receiving touchdown last week on one of his three targets just to add a little extra salt in the wound. In all seriousness, Zeke has been a force for fantasy football this entire season outside of the game against Tampa Bay and there's no reason to believe that that will change any time soon. The Cowboys are incredibly committed to their run game this season and both Zeke and Pollard are seeing plenty of work. The Patriots have been pretty tough on opposing RBs so far this season, but they have yet to face a rushing attack like the one Dallas possesses. Fire up Zeke as a top-5 RB yet again in this one.
