Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) took full practice reps all week. No worries here, though it’s not a bad idea to stash Rod Smith just in case Elliott’s knee takes a turn for the worse over the next few weeks.

Scouting Report

Week 17 at New York Giants

Rod Smith hasn't had more than six carries in any game this season as Ezekiel Elliot's backup. With the Cowboys already locked in with the No. 4 seed in the NFC, Smith should be more involved in the offense has Elliot will not receive his full workload.

Smith will face the Giants who are 31st in aFPA to running backs. Even with the great matchup, we think Smith's numbers will not be enough to warrant a fantasy start in Week 17.
