RB1: Ezekiel Elliot, Dallas Cowboys ($6,000)
Is Vintage Zeke back? He had his best game of the season last week against the Eagles, rushing 13 times for 81 yards and a touchdown. Though the stats weren’t huge, Zeke looked spry, quick, and explosive en route to a RB12 finish in fantasy football for the week.
This week, Dak Prescott is likely coming back, which will elevate the entire Dallas Cowboys’ offense to a higher, more explosive level. This will open things up for Zeke, who draws a great matchup against the Detroit Lions’ terrible defense. Everything seems to be coming together for Zeke, and he’s a solid play this week.
RB2: Kenneth Walker, Seattle Seahawks ($5,800)
Kenneth Walker reminded Seattle why they made him their second-round pick in 2022, rushing 21 times for 97 yards and a touchdown, looking explosive and carrying the Seahawks’ offense all day. He’s the featured back in an offense that loves to run the ball.
This week, Walker gets a dream matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers’ 23rd-ranked run defense. Walker has huge upside this week and comes at a slight discount based off of his workload and performance. He’s a high-upside play for the lineup this week.
