Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 7 Half PPR Rankings
Ezekiel Elliott Note

Zeke's fumbling is a huge concern. He now has five fumbles in six games and has lost four of them. If the Cowboys want to have a fighting chance this season, that needs to change quickly. For any other RB, it would be hard to trust plugging them back into our starting lineup, but this is Zeke. With Dalton struggling, Zeke needs to step up and become the focal point of this offense. He'll simply see too much work to not be viewed as a solid RB1. He might not have the huge ceiling that we thought that he would to begin the season, but he's seeing too much work as a receiver out of the backfield to be viewed as anything less than a safe RB1

Amari Cooper Note

All of the Cowboys receivers take a hit with Dalton behind center, but Cooper should continue to be a safe high-end WR2 every week based on volume alone. The Cowboys are going to continue to throw the ball a ridiculous amount with their defense playing the way that it is now, which means that Cooper should continue to see 7+ targets every game. Fire him up as a high-end WR2 this week.

CeeDee Lamb Note

Lamb has been a fantasy football star this season. While it's hard to trust him with the way that Dalton looked on MNF, Lamb should continue to get peppered with the targets in the short passing game. He's a safe low-end WR2 this week against Washington.

Michael Gallup Note

Gallup is the WR in Dallas that takes the biggest hit with the way that the OL and Dalton are playing right now. Gallup thrives on the downfield passing game, but if the OL can't block anyone long enough for Gallup to get 15+ yards downfield, it doesn't really matter much. Unfortunately, Gallup is teetering on WR4 status right now for this game and it's hard to see how he finishes much higher than that.

Dalton Schultz Note

The hype machine has died down quite a bit over the last few weeks, as Schultz has totaled just five catches for 41 yards in the last two games combined, which included just a 9.3 percent target share. Is there a glimmer of hope this week? Of the production that the Football Team has allowed to skill-position players, tight ends have accounted for 25.8 percent of them, which is the third-highest mark in the league. We've watched them allow four different tight ends produce top-15 numbers, including Gerald Everett, Dallas Goedert, and Zach Ertz. The 2.34 PPR points per target they've allowed ranks as the sixth most in football, and it's not just touchdowns, as the 8.98 yards per target ranks as the fourth-highest number in the league. Schultz is not a guarantee, but which tight ends are? He should be in the low-end TE1/high-end TE2 conversation this week.

Tony Pollard Note

Pollard got more work last week with Zeke's fumbling issue, but it's unlikely that that continues on into this matchup. Pollard will continue to see touches in this offense, but it's not going to be enough to vault him into RB3 consideration.
