Running Back: Tony Pollard, Dallas Cowboys (at Carolina)- $6600
It has been a disappointing fantasy season for Tony Pollard, who has eclipsed 100 yards on the ground just one time. But just as most players have soured on him, now might be the time to get him into your lineup for a bounce-back opportunity.
The Cowboys are going on the road against a terrible Carolina Panthers defense and it could be one of those games where the Cowboys jump out to a big lead and then ride their running game down the stretch.
Pollard has not had more than 15 carries in a game since September 24 but I look for all of his bad streaks to come to an end in Carolina. He will get more than 15 carries in this one and he will go over 100 yards rushing while also finding the end zone at least one time.
Deep sleeper: Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears (at Detroit)- $4700
Herbert's ankle is finally healed as the Bears have activated him from injured reserve for the Week 11 contest. It's hard to count on him in this one but he is easily the most explosive back in Chicago and he could get his chances in this one.
