2021 PPR Rest of Season Rankings

Ezekiel Elliott Note

It was reported over the weekend that the Cowboys are considering giving Elliott "time off to heal" his nagging knee injury. Dallas plays on Thursday night in Week 13 and it sounds as if the team might want to rest him for that. IR isn't currently being considered, but Zeke's fantasy managers should be nervous at the thought of Tony Pollard operating as a bell-cow RB with him sidelined even for just one game. Regardless of how many games Zeke misses, we should expect Pollard to play more down the stretch.

Tony Pollard Note

Ezekiel Elliott once again looked slow during Thursday's Week 13 game against the Saints. Per PFF, he ranks near the bottom of the league in advanced metrics like elusive rating and breakaway rate. Pollard, meanwhile, has been far more explosive this season. The Cowboys aren't going to turn away from giving Zeke meaningful touches for as long as he's healthy enough to play in games, but betting on Pollard is as much of a bet against Elliott's health if anything.
