Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott (knee) will play in Week 11, but behind Tony Pollard

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) will play in the team's Week 11 game against the Minnesota Vikings, but will reportedly play behind teammate Tony Pollard, Tom Pelissero reports.

What It Means:

According to Pelissero, the plan this week is for Tony Pollard to operate as the primary back and handle more touches than Zeke this week, as the latter continues to work his way back from the knee injury he suffered against the Lions in Week 7. Pollard has made a strong case for himself to be the team's starting back going forward in Zeke's absence, and this news could signal a shakeup in Dallas' backfield.

With this news, our models project Elliott to score 9.4 fantasy points against the Vikings, with 53.8 yards, 0.4 scores, and 5.9 receiving yards. He has a $7,000 salary on FanDuel.
