Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Blount has exceeded all expectations this season, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. The Eagles are favored to win on Monday night against the Redskins, which should mean that they rely heavily on their run game, including Blount. Washington is decent against opposing running backs, but are banged up on defense, so Blount should be able to continue his run of success. Consider him an RB2 here.After catching 18 passes over his previous two games, Ellington gave his fantasy owners a goose egg in Week 6 against the Bucs, as the Cardinals jumped out to a big lead and rode Adrian Peterson. It's clear with Peterson in the fold that Ellington's production is going to be game-script dependent - when the Cardinals are trailing, they'll use Ellington in the passing game, and when they're ahead, they won't. Unfortunately, this week's matchup against the Rams sets up better for Peterson, as the Cardinals are not projected to trail much, if any. The Rams give up the most fantasy points to opposing running backs, but that shouldn't matter much if Ellington doesn't get the work, and since Ellington is battling a knee injury, he may not have a big role regardless. Consider him an RB4 here.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
LeGarrette Blount has run the ball a lot better the last few weeks, totaling 344 yards on his last 58 carries (5.93 YPC), which has all come after he didn't receive a single carry in Week 2. He's only scored one touchdown in that time, limiting his upside, but Carson Wentz isn't going to throwing over two touchdowns per game. Blount totaled 46 yards on 14 carries in their first meeting and scored, though it was a receiving touchdown. The stars align here, though, as they are a home favorite with an offense that should score points against a banged-up defense. Blount is most definitely on the RB2 radar in standard leagues, though he's not quite as appealing in PPR formats.  
Derek Lofland

Washington is 12th against fantasy running backs, Blount could be a good flex option this week.
