Expert 
Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Henry looked fantastic last week. He ran for over 200 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. That said, Henry managers shouldn't expect the same level of production out of him against the Steelers. Pittsburgh gives up the third-fewest points per game to opposing rushers (14.9), and they rank first in defensive efficiency against the run. You should always start your studs, but Henry is someone to avoid in DFS. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Coming off a monstrous performance, Henry is a no-brainer start every single week as a top-tier option.Zeke's fumbling is a huge concern. He now has five fumbles in six games and has lost four of them. If the Cowboys want to have a fighting chance this season, that needs to change quickly. For any other RB, it would be hard to trust plugging them back into our starting lineup, but this is Zeke. With Dalton struggling, Zeke needs to step up and become the focal point of this offense. He'll simply see too much work to not be viewed as a solid RB1. He might not have the huge ceiling that we thought that he would to begin the season, but he's seeing too much work as a receiver out of the backfield to be viewed as anything less than a safe RB1
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
We talked about it being a smash-spot last week against the Texans, and Henry delivered when he pummeled their defense for 264 total yards and two touchdowns. The matchup aligned so well for his strengths, their weaknesses, and play-calling tendencies. Unfortunately, this matchup with the Steelers is brutal. They've not only allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to running backs, but they've faced the lowest weighted opportunity in the league, and it's not even close. Opposing teams of running backs are averaging just 20.2 touches per game against them, so even if Henry totaled 85 percent of the Titans touches (like he has this year), he'd be looking at 17 touches against a team that's allowed 3.22 yards per carry on the year. It doesn't help that the Steelers opponents have averaged a minuscule 58.8 plays per game, as the Titans are used to running 68.4 plays per game. There has been one running back who's broken the 100 total yards barrier against them over their last 22 games. No, I'm not just talking about rushing yards. Total yards. One running back in 22 games. Miles Sanders was the first running back to finish as a top-12 option against them since 2018, and it took a long 74-yard touchdown run to get there. We don't have a history to go off with Henry versus the Steelers, as he's played them just once in 2017, and that was when he was the backup to Demarco Murray. You're starting Henry because you're never sitting him, but it's a week where you're going to need one of those signature long runs in order for him to hit RB1 territory, as running backs just don't grind it out against the Steelers.He's on the struggle bus this season, as he's now fumbled five times, losing four of them. To make matters worse, he doesn't have a 100-yard rushing game on his resume in 2020. The offensive line continues to get worse, and they may be without their best offensive lineman, Zack Martin, who suffered a concussion on Monday night. With the short week, there's real concern there, especially for an offensive lineman. With that being said, there should be a whole lot of volume available to the Cowboys running backs this week, as teams have chosen to run the ball 48.4 percent of the time (third-highest mark in the league), which has allowed running backs to average 27.8 touches per game against them. They've played against five running backs who've totaled at least 15 carries and here were their performances: Nick Chubb 19/108/2, Darrell Henderson 15/38/1, Kareem Hunt 16/46/0, Kenyan Drake 20/86/0, and Devonta Freeman 18/61/0. So, while it hasn't been bad, it also hasn't been a smash spot on the ground for running backs not named Nick Chubb. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed the sixth-fewest PPR points per opportunity to running backs. Elliott has yet to crack 4.8 yards per carry in a single game this year, though he has seen at least eight targets in three of the last four games, which has provided a floor. Unfortunately, the offense isn't going to be in scoring position nearly as much without Prescott in the lineup, so his ceiling has taken a hit. He's still an RB1 with his workload, but not the elite one we're used to.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Steelers are 2nd against fantasy running backs, but this will be one of their toughest tests of the season.The Football team is 8th against fantasy running backs. Elliot is normally a matchup proof RB1, but with Andy Dalton behind center, he is more of a low-end RB1 than an elite option.
