Elliott follows a 187-yard, two-touchdown outburst by facing the Falcons, whose defensive struggles continued by yielding 209 yards and two touchdowns to Nick Chubb. Only the Chiefs have ceded more PPR points to running backs. Also setting a career high in catches (35), Elliott should shine as a pass-catcher against a club on the hook for an NFL-high 7.6 receptions per game to the position. He's an elite RB1 who will likely attract considerable DFS attention despite Atlanta welcoming back linebacker Deion Jones.Howard has logged just one more snap than Tarik Cohen over the last four games, turning a featured role into a clear timeshare. While he has also deposited four touchdowns during that period, he has totaled just 208 yards (with only two catches for 20 yards) while averaging 3.2 yards per carry. He's a touchdown-dependent RB2 (at best) facing a Vikings defense that has permitted rushing scores to just two running backs (David Johnson and Alvin Kamara) this season. Following a string of convincing wins, a more competitive opponent makes Cohen the preferred Bears running back in all formats.
Mike Tagliere

 We've watched the Bears ride Howard over the last three weeks, as gamescripts have been in their favor as seven-plus point favorites in each game. Because of that, he's totaled 47 carries to Cohen's 18 carries, but that time is coming to an end this week. The Vikings are going to be the most competitive team they've played in a while and their run-defense has allowed just 3.66 yards per carry on the season (6th-lowest) with two rushing touchdowns (2nd-lowest). In the two games he met them last year, he totaled just 85 yards on 28 carries without a touchdown. Knowing that Howard has seen exactly five targets over the last six games, he's nothing more than a mediocre RB3 option this week.
Derek Lofland

Atlanta is 27th against fantasy running backs, Elliott should see the ball a ton in Atlanta. He is an elite RB1 this week. Howard goes against a Minnesota D that has allowed the seventh fewest rushing yards to running backs this year. Howard is a low-upside flex play.
