Returns with two trips to end zone
Elliott (knee) rushed 15 times for 42 yards and two touchdowns and caught his lone target for five yards in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Vikings.
Elliott picked up where he left off prior to a two-game absence with his second two-score performance in as many contests. The 27-year-old split carries evenly with Tony Pollard (15/80/0), with the latter scoring a pair of touchdowns as a receiver. Elliott doesn't possess the big-play ability of his faster position mate, but he was clearly superior at the goal line on his two attempts from short (Pollard was stuffed twice from one-yard out Sunday). Both of Dallas' backs are worthy of starting in fantasy heading into a traditional Thanksgiving tilt against the Giants on Thursday.
