FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott (ribs) expected to play in Week 6

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (ribs) is expected to play against the New England Patriots in Week 6.

What It Means:

Elliott has battled through knee and now ribs issues this season as the Cowboys have fed him the rock, and it sounds like he should be good to go for this afternoon's tilt with the Patriots. If Elliott is truly limited, we could see a little more Tony Pollard than usual.

Elliott has handled at least 20 touches in each of the Cowboys' past 3 games and should continue seeing similar volume as long as the team keeps dominating its opponents. Our models project him 17.2 fantasy points (good for a spot as our RB6 for the week) while FanDuel has set his salary at $8,300.
