There was some concern after the Thanksgiving game that Zeke was going to have to miss some time with his knee injury that's been bothering him as of late, but he was a full participant in practice on Monday and seems to be a full-go for this matchup against the Saints defense. While Zeke certainly has not been what fantasy managers were hoping for as of late, he is still providing an incredibly high floor for a player who's battling through injury.

Pollard has seen a bit of an increase in work over the past few games with Zeke hampered by his knee injury and he's proving to be a solid plug-and-play option for fantasy managers as a RB2. He's now finished as a top-24 RB each of the past three weeks and he's averaging 13.66 total opportunities (targets + carries) over that time frame. With Pollard's talent, that's enough work to come through for fantasy lineups and he deserves to be considered yet again here in Week 13. The matchup against the Saints isn't great, but Pollard should see enough work to be viewed as a high-end RB3 this week.
