Dallas Cowboys DFS Spin
The Cowboys did not elevate a running back from the practice squad this week, signifying Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Vikings, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. This seems to be the natural conclusion after both head coach Mike McCarthy and team president Jerry Jones both commented the veteran would play this week. It's worth pointing out Elliott was also "on track" to play Week 10 against the Packers and then reports surfaced shortly before the game that he'd be inactive, so fantasy managers should stay diligent and check reports leading up to the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. Elliott hasn't played since Week 8 due to a Grade 2 MCL sprain in his right knee, and it's possible the Cowboys could limit the 27-year-old given Tony Pollard's (36-246-4) success over the aforementioned time period.
Minnesota Vikings DFS Spin
Dalvin Cook rushed 14 times for 119 yards and one touchdown while catching three of five targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 33-30 overtime win over the Bills. Cook was bottled up in the first half but broke free for an 81-yard touchdown run to pull the Vikings within 10 in the third quarter. He later helped Minnesota work its way down the field for a go-ahead field goal in overtime with rushes of 10, nine and 10 yards. That field goal coupled with a game-clinching interception by the defense improved the Vikings' record to 8-1 heading into a Week 11 home game against the Cowboys. Cook's touchdown was his fifth rushing score in the last five games.
