Expert 
Zachary Hanshew
FantasyPros
Zeke has put up some massive numbers over his last four games, and there's no reason to believe that changes in Week 6 even against a better-than-average Patriots run defense. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Fantasy managers that spite-traded Elliott away after his week one performance have to be absolutely kicking themselves right now. Over Zeke's last two games, he is averaging 20.5 rush attempts, 126.5 rushing yards, and one rushing touchdown per game. While he still isn't extremely involved in the receiving game, he was able to reel in an additional receiving touchdown last week on one of his three targets just to add a little extra salt in the wound. In all seriousness, Zeke has been a force for fantasy football this entire season outside of the game against Tampa Bay and there's no reason to believe that that will change any time soon. The Cowboys are incredibly committed to their run game this season and both Zeke and Pollard are seeing plenty of work. The Patriots have been pretty tough on opposing RBs so far this season, but they have yet to face a rushing attack like the one Dallas possesses. Fire up Zeke as a top-5 RB yet again in this one.Devonta Smith has certainly had a bit of an up-and-down rookie season so far, but he's continuing to be heavily targeted and he's strung together two solid back-to-back performances. Smith led the Eagles in targets in week five against the Panthers with eight and he turned it into seven receptions for 77 yards and no score. While he did have a touchdown this past week, it was called back due to an illegal pick play in the end zone by Greg Ward. Additionally, Smith lost a fumble last week which hurt his overall fantasy finish, but the production is there enough in this Eagles offense that we can rely on him moving forward. It might not be as a low-end WR2 or higher like everyone was hoping for at the beginning of the season, but he's a steady and reliable mid-range/low-end WR3 that does come with some upside in this matchup against the Bucs' secondary that's bleeding fantasy points. Otherwise, none of the other Eagles' WRs should be considered for fantasy football.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Patriots are 13th against fantasy backs and Elliott has been a Top-10 fantasy back each of the last 4 weeks. He should be a RB1 on the road this week.Smith has posted 18 targets, 14 receptions, and 199 yards over the last 2 games. He is a solid WR3 with upside against the Bucs 31st ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.
