Always a threat to take one to the house, Barkley secured his fourth straight 100-yard rushing outing with a 78-yard touchdown against Washington, which hasn't allowed as many rushing yards in six separate games. His seven-game streak to drawing 20 touches only snapped (18) because the Giants took their foot off the accelerator after gaining an insurmountable 40-0 lead. He may receive closer to 30 touches against the Titans with Odell Beckham Jr. (quad) missing another game. The transcendent rookie is an easy top-five choice despite his opponent yielding the fourth-fewest fantasy points (14.8 per game) to running backs.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.
Tim McCullough
FantasyPros
 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.

Titans second best vs opposing RBs in Fantasy, but Barkley may be best in league right nowColts have not allowed 100-yard RB in 6 straight, but Zeke's new pass-catching skills keep upside high
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Barkley is the leading fantasy running back over the last 4 weeks and he should continue to have RB1 value, even against a tough Titans D. 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.
