Injury-Based Fantasy Advice - START - Elliott should be good-to-go for Week 15 despite dealing with a shoulder injury. He missed practice on Wednesday, but returned as a full participant on Thursday, all but ensuring his availability this weekend. He might be hindered a bit by the injury, but he's definitely still worth the start.

Colts have not allowed 100-yard RB in 6 straight, but Zeke's new pass-catching skills keep upside highCAR has allowed a rush TD in 5 straight and 6 of 7.
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Elliott has compiled 582 yards on 119 rushes over Dallas' last five games to establish NFL leads in rushing attempts (268) and yards (1,262). He has also corralled 36 catches for 276 yards in that five-game window, giving him more receptions this season (65) than all but four running backs (Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, James White, and Alvin Kamara). The Colts have quietly contained opponents to 3.8 yards per carry, but Elliott is a matchup-proof RB1 who should ride an absurdly heavy workload to his seventh straight 100-yard tally.Kamara has totaled 257 yards and no touchdowns in the last three middling games. He'll look to awaken from this funk against the Panthers, who have permitted the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game (15.7) to opposing running backs. Perhaps he'd fall closer to the bottom of Week 15's top 10 if the position wasn't inflicted with so many notable losses. He has gathered eight of his NFL-high 61 red-zone touches during his mini-slump, so there's too much week-winning upside to worry outside of DFS cash contests.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Elliott ranks 3rd among fantasy running backs over the last 4 games and he has a good matchup at the Indianapolis Colts, who rank 13th against fantasy running backs this season. Carolina is 6th against fantasy running backs, but Kamara is a matchup proof RB1 at home.
