Coming into last week, Elliott led the league with 16 carries inside the five-yard-line. It was only a matter of time before he started to convert some of those into touchdowns. He scored in Week 11, though it was on a target. He looked extremely good in that game against the Vikings, as his vision was better than I'd seen it all year, and it led to him tallying his first 100-rushing-yard game of the season. It's going to be tough to repeat that task against Washington, who's allowed just one running back (Nick Chubb) to finish with more than 86 yards on the ground against them this year. In their first meeting, Elliott was held to just 45 yards on 12 carries and caught just one pass for six yards. That's been a somewhat common thing against Washington, as D'Andre Swift has been the only running back who's topped four receptions or 37 receiving yards against them. All in all, they've allowed the eighth-fewest fantasy points through the air to running backs, though much of that is due to lack of volume, as they've seen just 4.9 targets per game (2nd-fewest in NFL). We've talked about touchdowns, right? Well, of the seven running backs who've touched the ball 15-plus times against Washington, five have scored with the only exceptions being Devonta Freeman and Kenyan Drake. It's not a locked-and-loaded RB1-type week for Elliott, but he should remain in lineups as a high-end RB2 who's locked into 18-plus touches. Washington has faced 26.6 touches per game to running backs, so it doesn't leave a whole lot for Pollard, who has snuck in five-plus carries in each of the last six games, though that's not enough to play him as anything more than an emergency RB4.With Christian McCaffrey ruled out for another week, it'll be Davis' backfield. We've had to dial back expectations for him after that hot start, as he's failed to crack 66 yards on the ground or 34 yards through the air since Week 5. He's scored just twice since that time, so maybe the workload caught up with him? There have been three running backs who've topped 75 yards on the ground against the Vikings, but all of them totaled 20-plus carries, which is a mark that Davis hasn't gotten to this season. Unfortunately, the Vikings have also limited production through the air to running backs as well, as there's been no running back who's topped 36 yards through the air against them. When you start factoring those things in with Davis' lack of ceiling over the last six weeks, it's a bit problematic. On top of that, the Vikings have allowed just seven total touchdowns to running backs, which ranks as the fifth-fewest in the league. In terms of efficiency, the Vikings have allowed the 11th-fewest fantasy points per weighted opportunity to running backs, but the good news is that they've had to face 28.7 running back touches per game. That's where Davis gets his value, as he's locked into 15-plus touches in this game, and maybe 20 of them. Because of that, he belongs in the mid-to-high-end RB2 territory.

FantasyPros
Elliott had 18 fantasy points last week, he has a tough test this week against Washington's 8th ranked fantasy running back defense. He should still be a low-end RB1.CMC is not expected to play this week, which puts Mike Davis on the RB1 bubble against the Vikings 16th ranked fantasy RB defense.
Kyle Yates

Welcome back to relevancy, Ezekiel Elliott! We've missed you. Zeke put together a solid performance this past week against Minnesota by averaging nearly five yards per carry and finding the end zone as a receiver. Moving forward, there's reason for optimism with Zeke in this offense with Dalton at QB. While this is a tougher matchup for opposing RBs, Zeke absolutely belongs in your starting lineup as a mid-range RB1 that should see plenty of work.
