Just as everyone accepted him as a frontline WR1, Cooper has collected 63 yards in the last two games. That was in a full heaping of playing time. While the Cowboys insist they're playing their starters, there's no guarantee Cooper plays four quarters in a game with no consequences. There's a lot of risk to consider before trotting him out as a high-reward WR3. Reason will prevail. Contradicting calls for Jerry Jones to go all out, the Cowboys will give Elliott some well-deserved rest in Week 17. He averaged a gargantuan 25.4 touches and 133.4 total yards per game, clearing 100 in eight of the last nine. The Giants are one of the NFL's softest opponents against the run without Damon Harrison and Landon Collins, so Rod Smith is an appealing replacement and DFS flier.

 Jerry Jones claiming DAL will play starters as normal even though they're locked into No. 4 seed. In 2016, he claimed same thing when they were locked into No. 1 seed. Dak two series, Zeke DNP, Dez 18 snaps.
