Bryant has taken a lot of heat lately, and with good reason, as his failure to deliver in some key spots greatly hurt the Cowboys' playoff chances. The Eagles aren't a great matchup for receivers, but chances are they will rest some starters as the day goes along, which could allow Bryant to have an avenue for success. He's not an elite option in Week 17, but you could certainly do worse.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.

 Zeke is 120 yards away from 1,000 for the season.

 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.
