Zeke is 120 yards away from 1,000 for the season. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Elliott needs 120 yards to have a 1,000 yard season, Elliott should be a RB1 even though the Cowboys have nothing to play for this week. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Elliott played extremely well against the Seahawks, gaining 118 total yards on 28 touches. He could have had a huge day had the Cowboys not inexplicably gone away from the run near the goal-line several times. The Eagles are extremely tough on opposing running backs, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position. But with the No. 1 seed locked up, they may rest some starters, which would make Elliott an even more enticing option than he usually is. Either way, you're certainly not benching him if you're still playing, and he makes a fine option. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
 This is one where I'm going to have to bite the bullet, as Henry didn't get the role I expected him to against the 49ers last week. Instead, the Titans decided to ride their 29-year-old running back, giving him 19 touches, which was more than double Henry's touch count. They appear content with mediocrity, so why should we assume it changes now? The Rams have been a matchup to target most of the year, though volume has been hard to come by, as three of their last four opponents ran the ball 20 or fewer times, so it's not shocking to see they're in the top-12 for fewest rushing attempts allowed. They have allowed a massive 4.61 yards per attempt on the year (third-most) with 11 touchdowns (seventh-most), so the hope is there for both Titans running backs.
