Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Zeke's fumbling is a huge concern. He now has five fumbles in six games and has lost four of them. If the Cowboys want to have a fighting chance this season, that needs to change quickly. For any other RB, it would be hard to trust plugging them back into our starting lineup, but this is Zeke. With Dalton struggling, Zeke needs to step up and become the focal point of this offense. He'll simply see too much work to not be viewed as a solid RB1. He might not have the huge ceiling that we thought that he would to begin the season, but he's seeing too much work as a receiver out of the backfield to be viewed as anything less than a safe RB1Hunt disappointed fantasy managers in week five, but this offense simply couldn't get anything going with Mayfield struggling. While it might be hard to trust Hunt after the numbers he just put up, he absolutely belongs in your starting lineup as a top-tier option against the Bengals run defense. Hunt's a locked in RB1 this week.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He's on the struggle bus this season, as he's now fumbled five times, losing four of them. To make matters worse, he doesn't have a 100-yard rushing game on his resume in 2020. The offensive line continues to get worse, and they may be without their best offensive lineman, Zack Martin, who suffered a concussion on Monday night. With the short week, there's real concern there, especially for an offensive lineman. With that being said, there should be a whole lot of volume available to the Cowboys running backs this week, as teams have chosen to run the ball 48.4 percent of the time (third-highest mark in the league), which has allowed running backs to average 27.8 touches per game against them. They've played against five running backs who've totaled at least 15 carries and here were their performances: Nick Chubb 19/108/2, Darrell Henderson 15/38/1, Kareem Hunt 16/46/0, Kenyan Drake 20/86/0, and Devonta Freeman 18/61/0. So, while it hasn't been bad, it also hasn't been a smash spot on the ground for running backs not named Nick Chubb. From an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed the sixth-fewest PPR points per opportunity to running backs. Elliott has yet to crack 4.8 yards per carry in a single game this year, though he has seen at least eight targets in three of the last four games, which has provided a floor. Unfortunately, the offense isn't going to be in scoring position nearly as much without Prescott in the lineup, so his ceiling has taken a hit. He's still an RB1 with his workload, but not the elite one we're used to.We talked about how tough of a matchup the Steelers were last week, right? Sadly, it was even worse than we thought, as he finished with just 57 total yards and no touchdown. That's the bad news. The good news is that he should find his way back into fantasy owners' hearts this week with a matchup against the Bengals, a team that he and Nick Chubb trampled on back in Week 2 when they combined for 234 total yards and four touchdowns. Hunt won't be getting the 35 touches that they combined for, but this is a team that's faced an average of 27.3 running back touches per game, so we're looking at what should be 20-plus touches for Hunt in this game. There have already been eight different running backs who've totaled at least 57 yards on the ground against them. Guys, they've played just six games. Outside of that game against the Browns, they've only allowed one running back touchdown (Joshua Kelley), which is a tad worrisome for running backs moving forward, but not enough to move me off Hunt as a candidate for the RB1 this week. He's a must-start everywhere and should be fresh coming off just a 15-touch game.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Football team is 8th against fantasy running backs. Elliot is normally a matchup proof RB1, but with Andy Dalton behind center, he is more of a low-end RB1 than an elite option.The Bengals are 19th against fantasy running backs, Hunt should have a bounce back game in a much better matchup.
