Ezekiel Elliott (knee) said he feels "the best I've felt in a while." "Last week I wore a knee brace and it helped a lot, giving me some stability," Elliott continued. "I definitely felt more comfortable.” Zeke has not been himself while dealing with a knee injury, but he was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and in his own words is getting back to full health. That said, he was out-carried by Corey Clement last week and still appeared to be limping at times. Elliott will have low-end RB1 appeal as long as Tony Pollard (foot) is out just due to his touch potential, but he would be a much better play if he got back to his old self.
New York Giants DFS Spin
The New York Post's Ryan Dunleavy reports Giants players don't expect Daniel Jones (neck) to play again this season. Jones was ruled out for Sunday, his third straight missed game, and remains week-to-week. The Giants are erring on the side of caution with Jones, who still hasn't been cleared for contact. Nothing has been ruled out beyond this week, but Jones is running out of time with only three games remaining. The Giants will give at least one more spot start to Mike Glennon against Dallas with Jones sidelined.
