The question on this slate is Elliott or David Johnson. While Johnson has proved to be one of if not the best running back in the NFL this season, I am giving the slight edge to Elliott this week. I love the amount of touches that Elliott is getting right now and the way that he is running. Elliott leads the NFL in rushing yards at 703 despite only playing six games and has also added in five touchdowns which is sixth in the league. He is averaging just shy of 19 FanDuel points per game. The match-up is not the best in the world as the Eagles are a solid defense but that does not bother me as Elliott is by far the most talented back the Eagles have faced this season.
