 Coming into last week, Elliott led the league with 16 carries inside the five-yard-line. It was only a matter of time before he started to convert some of those into touchdowns. He scored in Week 11, though it was on a target. He looked extremely good in that game against the Vikings, as his vision was better than I'd seen it all year, and it led to him tallying his first 100-rushing-yard game of the season. It's going to be tough to repeat that task against Washington, who's allowed just one running back (Nick Chubb) to finish with more than 86 yards on the ground against them this year. In their first meeting, Elliott was held to just 45 yards on 12 carries and caught just one pass for six yards. That's been a somewhat common thing against Washington, as D'Andre Swift has been the only running back who's topped four receptions or 37 receiving yards against them. All in all, they've allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points through the air to running backs, though much of that is due to lack of volume, as they've seen just 4.9 targets per game (2nd-fewest in NFL). We've talked about touchdowns, right? Well, of the seven running backs who've touched the ball 15-plus times against Washington, five have scored with the only exceptions being Devonta Freeman and Kenyan Drake. It's not a locked-and-loaded RB1-type week for Elliott, but he should remain in lineups as a high-end RB2 who's locked into 18-plus touches. Washington has faced 26.6 touches per game to running backs, so it doesn't leave a whole lot for Pollard, who has snuck in five-plus carries in each of the last six games, though that's not enough to play him as anything more than an emergency RB4.

 Pollard was able to cash in last week, but he only saw five total touches. That's not enough to rely on for fantasy football and he should remain on your bench.
