After starting out the game with over 60 yards in the first 10 minutes of the Thanksgiving game, the Cowboys started to abandon the run. It's fair to say that didn't work. The Bears run defense hasn't been one to fear as of late, allowing 784 yards on 203 carries with nine touchdowns in the eight games without defensive tackle Akiem Hicks. The 3.86 yards per carry isn't massive or anything, but it's worth noting they didn't allow a running back more than 39 yards on the ground with Hicks but have allowed five running backs to hit 80-plus yards without him. It helps that six of the last nine teams have had a running back with at least 17 carries, but that's another plus for Elliott. It's getting tiring waiting around for the top-three performance out of Elliott, but you'll continue to trot him out there as a middling RB1 who does come with a very stable floor. The Bears haven't won a game by more than seven points since back in Week 4, so there's very little gamescript concern in this one.We talked about the win/loss splits with Jacobs last week and they continued in Week 13. For whatever reason, he is not used in the passing-game in games they fall behind. There was one play where Jacobs went out into the flat and was essentially doing jumping jacks to try and get Carr's attention, as he was uncovered. The Raiders are underdogs in this game, but it's a winnable one, so we shouldn't automatically assume the win/loss splits apply. The Titans had been a really good run defense under Mike Vrabel, though they've slipped a bit since Week 8. Over their last four games, they've allowed 414 yards on 96 carries (4.31 yards per carry) with five rushing touchdowns. Running backs have been targeted quite a bit against the Titans, as the 8.3 targets per game ranks as the second-most. There have been just seven running backs who've finished better than the RB24 against the Titans, which is not great odds, but it's possible that Jacobs is catching them at the right time. You're not considering sitting Jacobs, who's seen at least 17 touches in eight of the last nine games, so plug him in as a solid RB2 who has RB1 upside if he's used in the passing game.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
Chicago is still a tough defense, but they have been middle of the road versus RBs over the past five weeks and they have been run over my good offensive lines at times this season. Obviously, Dallas has a strong enough offensive line to do it again on Thursday. Their issue is that they need to commit to the run with Zeke, after giving him 16 or less carries in two of the past three games. If he sees 20+ carries, like he should, he will be a RB1 play this week. I expect him to get there, and I am valuing him as such. 
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
 The lack of involvement that Jacobs sees in the passing game caps his upside a bit, but he's usually a lock for 15-20 carries, and he's very efficient with them with an average of 4.9 yards per attempt. Look for him to continue to be heavily involved in what should be a close game against the Titans.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 19th against fantasy running backs, Elliott should be a good RB1 option on Thursday Night Football.The Titans are 20th against fantasy running backs, Jacobs has some RB2 appeal, but he is a dicey play on an offense that has gone south the last two weeks.
