Fantasy Football Player Notes

Week 6 PPR Rankings

Ezekiel Elliott Note

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.

Tony Pollard Note

Here are Pollard's total touches each week so far this season: 7, 16, 12, 10, and 18. He certainly doesn't have the upside for fantasy that many other options do at the position who see more volume, but he's proving that he's an incredibly consistent option for fantasy lineups. As fantasy managers are scrambling to figure out their RB2 spot every single week, Pollard's actually one of the more reliable and steady options for that spot. He's playing in a high-powered offense, he has a guaranteed role, and we know he has the talent to make those touches count. To prove this point, Pollard leads all RBs in the NFL in Yards Per Carry with 6.4 (min. 50 rush attempts). Based on the way he's been playing recently, he has to be elevated into the weekly high-end RB3 conversation. In this matchup against New England, Pollard's certainly worth starting if you've got him on your roster and you're in need of help at the RB spot.
