After accruing at least 94 total yards in each of the first 13 games, Barkley has stumbled to 133 yards on 44 touches in the last two contests. While Dallas' fifth-ranked rushing defense contained him to 28 yards on the ground in Week 2, he made up for it with 14 receptions. He offered such a lofty ceiling all season before Week 15's untimely dud, and the Cowboys can take the final weekend easy with the fourth seed in hand. The Giants may also want him to finish strong to elicit Offensive Rookie of the Year votes, so Barkley is the most likely of the top-tier running backs to flourish in a full Week 17 workload.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Barkely should have a monster game against a Dallas team that is locked in at the #4 seed and has nothing to play for this week.
