Ezekiel Elliot- RB Cowboys

Elliot is currently tracking as RB9 in fantasy points.  We're now in the 6 week sprint to the finish, and we'd take Elliot over every player at every position from here on out.  The Cowboys lean on him, and the addition of Amari Cooper creates a little more breathing room. The Cowboys should be in the hunt down the stretch, and his schedule (Falcons, Redskins, Saints, Eagles, Colts, Bucs) is the easiest of any running back.  Kamara, Hunt and Gurley could all be resting the final few games of the regular season, and James White's numbers should take a downturn with Sony Michel healthy.
Le'veon Bell- RB, Dolphins?

Bell did what countless others have done, he held out to get more money.  Kudos to Bell for following all the way through with it, and kudos to the Steelers for not budging.  It looks like it could work out for both parties unless James Conner fades down the stretch.  Bell won't get a mega contract, but we're guessing something in the $40 guarantee range.
Adam Thielen- WR, Vikings

Thielen is due for a major regression.  Trade him now for two starters.  Dalvin Cook has returned to balance the offense out, and Thielen regressed bad at the end of 2017 only posting one game over 61 yards in his final five contests.  The fact that he's having a monster year and Stefon Diggs is still the guy that gets double covered speaks volumes.  He'll still be good from here on out because he's a target vacuum, but he probably won't be a top 10 WR during the fantasy playoff run.

Jordan Howard- RB, Bears

Howard was primed for a monster year in 2018 but it hasn't materialized.  Trubisky has improved while Howard has regressed.  His YPC has gone from 5.2 in 2016, to 4.1 in 2017 and a pathetic 3.4 in 2018.  We still wonder if the cold weather might bring him back to life.  He scored 8 of his 15 touchdowns after week 10 in 2016/17. 
Demaryius Thomas- WR Texans

Umm, trade for Thomas.  He's likely on someone's bench and he might turn into a borderline WR1 in the next few weeks.  Deshaun Watson makes his WR2 into stars, just ask Will Fuller and even Keke Coutee.  Thomas is avergaing a career high catch percentage of 66%.  His schedule is also the best WR schedule down the stretch.  He shouldn't cost much in trade, so we're buying.
