Expert 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Pollard has seen a bit of an increase in work over the past few games with Zeke hampered by his knee injury and he's proving to be a solid plug-and-play option for fantasy managers as a RB2. He's now finished as a top-24 RB each of the past three weeks and he's averaging 13.66 total opportunities (targets + carries) over that time frame. With Pollard's talent, that's enough work to come through for fantasy lineups and he deserves to be considered yet again here in Week 13. The matchup against the Saints isn't great, but Pollard should see enough work to be viewed as a high-end RB3 this week. 
Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Jefferson has seen at least six targets in each of his last five games and has 16-319-2 over that span. He's averaging 17.6 yards per catch and 9.4 yards per target. This is a quiet but convincing second-year breakout taking place in the shadow of Cooper Kupp's season for the ages. Jefferson is a midrange WR3 this week.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Pollard did have 15 fantasy points last week, but he loses too many carries to Zeke Elliott to be more than a flex option.
