Week 13: at Minnesota Vikings
All RB vs MIN
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Both of these teams played on Thanksgiving, so they've had an equal amount of time to recover in time for this Thursday night game.
The Cowboys ran their record to 10-1 against Washington, helped by Ezekiel Elliott's 20/97/2 rushing performance (with two targets for 2/23/0 receiving to go over 100 yards combined). He's now scored two rushing TDs in three of his last four games (and he had a third receiving TD in Week 10 against the Steelers). Elliott is the definition of a hot fantasy player as of Week 13 folks. Dak Prescott also pushed in a rushing score last week with 8/39/1, helping Dallas to 30/163/3 rushing vs Washington.
The Vikings' rush defense gave up 19/94/0 on the ground to Detroit's committee of backs on Thanksgiving, while Arizona managed 28/135/1 rushing at US Bank Stadium two games ago. From Week Nine to Week 12 of regular season (the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on byes during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Minnesota averages 15.3 fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs per game (10th-least in the NFL). To date, the Vikings average 100.2 rushing yards allowed per game (14th in the NFL), but they have given away just five rushing scores so far (tied for second-least in the NFL).
Elliott is playing very well in the second half of the season, but he does face a tougher-than-usual matchup this week - he's also your starter unless you are absolutely loaded at running back this season.
