Elliott had by far the worst game of his career in Week 2 against the Broncos, as he gained just eight yards on nine carries and added 14 yards receiving on four carries. He now has the unfortunate task of going up against a Cardinals defense that is allowing just 2.3 yards per carry so far this season. But, putting last week's stunner aside, Elliott and the massive Cowboys offensive line can handle any defense, and there's no chance you're going to sit Elliott here. While this may not be his best game of the season, owners should start him with confidence and expect a major bounce-back game.Freeman hasn't lit the world on fire with his rushing ability yet in 2017 (just 3.9 YPC), but he's managed to find the end zone three times in his first two games. He may have trouble continuing the latter trend against the Lions in Week 3, as Detroit allowed only five rushing touchdowns to running backs all last year. But the disparity between Freeman and Tevin Coleman's usage got larger in Week 2 (17-snap gap vs. 12-snap gap in Week 1), which is obviously a good sign for Freeman going forward. He's an RB1 in this matchup, as he will be most weeks, but his ceiling is a bit lower than it has been in either previous matchup this season.

Elliot had the worst game of his career with 8 yards on 9 carries, he is a bounce back candidate against the Cardinals this week.Freeman goes against a Lions D that is 12th against fantasy running backs, but the Falcons are one of the best running games in the league and Freeman should still be a great play this week.

I expect we'll see a bounceback performance from Elliott this week. It may not be a huge game, but this week isn't full of easy running back matchups for studs.The Lions did a good job stopping David Johnson in Week 1 and had little trouble with the Giants' running game last week, so I do worry about Freeman's upside. But as the goal-line back, he always has upside in this offense.
