Devising the perfect Daily Fantasy Sports strategy for the NFL can be a challenge, which is why I'm here to assist.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is back in the lineup as Dallas heads into a Week 11 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Elliott's knee is no longer hindering his lateral movement or short-area explosiveness. "I anticipate him going," McCarthy said of Elliott's return from a three-week absence that included the Cowboys' bye week. Tony Pollard is leading the NFL with 6.0 yards per carry among running backs with at least 100 carries in 2022. He has four touchdowns in the past two games, clearing 100 rushing yards against the Bears (131) and Packers (115). Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Elliott is the starter because he brings something to the offense that most defense can't consistently contend with. "We are a better team when we've got him and got him available. Defenses are well aware, more than anybody, of his impact and his availability," Jones said in a radio interview Friday. "I'm glad to have him back, and it does look like he's gonna be available (Sunday)." Elliott, who is averaging 4.1 yards a carry, has 443 rushing yards and four TDs on the ground. McCarthy said defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (foot, knee) and linebacker Anthony Barr (hamstring) would also be available at Minnesota. Barr did not play last week at Green Bay. --Field Level Media

PITTSBURGH — Remember when the Steelers beat up teams in the run game? Me neither. But if I squint hard enough, I can still conjure a pleasant sight: Maurkice Pouncey and David DeCastro pulling together on joint seek-and-destroy missions. Man, it was poetry watching those two in motion. It was so long ago, though, that it might as well be William Shakespeare's poetry. The Steelers running ...

PITTSBURGH — At times, it looks as if star Steelers running back Najee Harris is unsure of where to run. But he might be even less sure of what to say. As Harris struggles for rushing yards in his second season, the 2021 first-round pick seems to be vacillating between frustration and positivity, disappointment and confidence. Shortly after his lowest-carry game of the year, and his fourth in ...
Defensive tackle Bob Lilly will forever be Mr. Cowboy. He was the first ever draft pick in the history of the Dallas Cowboys franchise. He was the first player who spent his entire career with the Cowboys to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. And he was the first player enshrined in the team’s hallowed Ring of Honor. Roger Staubach will likely never relinquish his unofficial title ...
