Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 14 PPR Rankings
Ezekiel Elliott photo 3. Ezekiel Elliott RB - (at CHI)
After starting out the game with over 60 yards in the first 10 minutes of the Thanksgiving game, the Cowboys started to abandon the run. It's fair to say that didn't work. The Bears run defense hasn't been one to fear as of late, allowing 784 yards on 203 carries with nine touchdowns in the eight games without defensive tackle Akiem Hicks. The 3.86 yards per carry isn't massive or anything, but it's worth noting they didn't allow a running back more than 39 yards on the ground with Hicks but have allowed five running backs to hit 80-plus yards without him. It helps that six of the last nine teams have had a running back with at least 17 carries, but that's another plus for Elliott. It's getting tiring waiting around for the top-three performance out of Elliott, but you'll continue to trot him out there as a middling RB1 who does come with a very stable floor. The Bears haven't won a game by more than seven points since back in Week 4, so there's very little gamescript concern in this one.

Amari Cooper photo 34. Amari Cooper WR - (at CHI)
The Bears have been in the top half of the league against WRs over the past five weeks, but they are no where near the feared matchup that they were last season. Cooper sees the best matchup of the WR crops, seeing a 12% matchup advantage over Kyler Fuller. Cooper has been relatively quiet recently, but he did put up 85 yards in a tough matchup on Thanksgiving. He is a solid WR2 option with upside this week.

Michael Gallup photo 57. Michael Gallup WR - (at CHI)
The Bears have been in the top half of the league against WRs over the past five weeks, but they are no where near the feared matchup that they were last season. Gallup has been fairly consistent, putting up 50+ yards in four straight games. He is a solid fantasy option, but he does not possess the top end upside that Cooper does in this matchup. Gallup is a solid WR3 this week.

Randall Cobb photo 98. Randall Cobb WR - (at CHI)
For whatever it's worth, Cobb has killed the Bears in his career, scoring nine touchdowns in 15 games. This domination was even seen last season, as he was a huge part in that crazy Week 1 comeback. Of course, he no longer has Rodgers throwing him the ball, but Cobb has been pretty productive with Dallas. He has three solid games in a row before last week's disappointment, but this is a decent spot for him to bounce back. He should still not likely be valued higher than a WR4 or a low end WR3, but it's important to note that he has the upside to be a starting level player this week, given his recent production in Dallas and past against the Bears.

Jason Witten photo 117. Jason Witten TE - (at CHI)
What a stud. He scored on Thanksgiving once again and did it against a Bills team that has been the best in the NFL against tight ends the last two years. He's seen at least four targets in every game this year and has averaged 6.3 targets over the last seven games. He doesn't offer a ceiling, but he does offer consistency. The Bears kind of fit that mold perfectly, as they have allowed just two tight ends to top 49 yards against them since the start of the 2018 season. However, there has been nine different tight ends who've totaled at least 30 yards against them this year. The 9.70 yards per reception they've allowed is among the lowest in the league, but the 5.8 receptions and 56.6 yards per game are both above average. He should be considered a middling TE2 who doesn't offer week-winning upside, but he should be locked in for four-plus targets and 30-plus yards.
