Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Elliott's tumultuous season took another turn this week, as he was granted a temporary restraining order that will allow him to play in Week 7 against San Francisco. That's great news for Elliott's fantasy owners, both because they don't need an immediate replacement and because the 49ers allow the second-most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Elliott hasn't had a great season, averaging just 3.7 yards per carry and scoring only two touchdowns. But he should feast in a soft matchup on Sunday, and makes an easy top-five option. 
Derek Lofland

Elliot has a fantastic matchup against the 49ers 31st ranked fantasy running back defense. His suspension has been stayed for another week, so he will be ready to roll this week.
