 Bell might play this weekend, but even if he does, it will more than likely be short-lived, as the Patriots are expected to wrap up homefield advantage against the Jets. As crazy as it sounds, you should plan on not using Bell this weekend.

Zeke is 120 yards away from 1,000 for the season. 
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
Elliott needs 120 yards to have a 1,000 yard season, Elliott should be a RB1 even though the Cowboys have nothing to play for this week.Bell had only 47 yards from scrimmage the last time these teams played in Week 1, but that was in Week 1 with Bell having missed the entire preseason. Bell should be an elite RB1 this week.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Elliott played extremely well against the Seahawks, gaining 118 total yards on 28 touches. He could have had a huge day had the Cowboys not inexplicably gone away from the run near the goal-line several times. The Eagles are extremely tough on opposing running backs, allowing the second-fewest fantasy points to the position. But with the No. 1 seed locked up, they may rest some starters, which would make Elliott an even more enticing option than he usually is. Either way, you're certainly not benching him if you're still playing, and he makes a fine option.
