  • Ezekiel Elliott Finds End Zone On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 16 times for 92 yards and one touchdown against the New York Giants on Thursday evening. He also hauled in a three-yard reception. Ultimately, the veteran back turned in a solid fantasy performance, in large part thanks to his ability to find the end zone. Dallas has done a good job balancing the usage of both Elliott and Tony Pollard; the two backs should be viewed as RB2 options in Week 13 versus Indianapolis.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Has A Solid Floor In Week 12

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has a solid floor in a Week 12 Thanksgiving game against the New York Giants. "Zeke" has been thoroughly outplayed by Tony Pollard for a while now, but Elliott has still been able to be an RB1 option for three straight games. Pollard is making the plays but Elliott is still getting goal line work and plenty of touches of his own. He's an RB2 with some upside but mostly a high floor.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Returns With Two Touchdowns In Week 11

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott made it back into the lineup in Week 11. He ran the ball 15 times, gaining 42 yards and scoring two touchdowns. He added one catch on his only target for five more yards. Elliott scored two short touchdowns and had a long play of just eight yards. He averaged 2.8 yards per carry while his backfield mate Tony Pollard averaged 5.3 yards on each of his attempts. As the story has been for seemingly years now, Pollard is the better back, but Elliott will continue to play as long as he's healthy. He'll be a touchdown dependent RB2/3 on Thanksgiving.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Expected To Play In Week 11

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected to suit up for the Week 11 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Owner Jerry Jones mentioned earlier in the week that Elliott looks like he's going to be available for this game. It sounds like Elliott is light years ahead of last week in terms of health. It's uncertain if the team plans to limit Elliott at all during this contest. Regardless, his return would be bad news for the streaming value of Tony Pollard. Fantasy managers should consider Elliott a low-end RB2, assuming he's able to play on Sunday.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Likely To Play In Week 11

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) should be available for Week 11, according to owner Jerry Jones. The Cowboys owner mentioned that he's glad to have Elliott back and it looks like he's going to be available against the Minnesota Vikings. It sounds like Elliott is set to return, assuming he doesn't suffer a setback. He'll likely be eased back into action, but would be the lead back for this game. That being said, Tony Pollard won't be as attractive as a streaming option with Elliott healthy. Fantasy managers should consider Elliott a low-end RB2 for this upcoming matchup.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Takes Part In Individual Drills

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) went through individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media on Thursday. Elliott was limited on Wednesday and will likely receive the same tag on Thursday, but he reportedly looked great on Wednesday and has a shot to end his two-game absence in Week 11 against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday. The 27-year-old is attempting to return from an MCL sprain, but he could be eased back into the backfield rotation alongside Tony Pollard once he's ready, which will make him more of a shaky RB2/3 option for fantasy managers. Another thing working against Zeke this week if he returns is the fact that the Vikings defense has allowed just 17.8 half-points PPR points to the RB position per game in 2022, which ranks sixth-fewest in the league.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Limited On Wednesday

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) was listed as a limited participant in the team's practice on Wednesday. Elliott has not seen the field since Week 7 but was able to get in some limited practice work last week before ultimately being ruled out against the Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys have a short week after this upcoming Sunday's contest as they will play on Thanksgiving Day, but head coach Mike McCarthy stated that this will not be a factor in determining Elliott's availability for a Week 11 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings. Tony Pollard has been excellent in Elliott's absence, so fantasy managers will want to monitor practice reports throughout the week before making any lineup decisions.

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is inactive for Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Likely Inactive For Week 10

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected to miss Sunday's Week 10 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. The 27-year-old has been dealing with a knee issue for multiple weeks. The team mentioned that Elliott would test his knee pregame, but said he'd sit unless he was 100 percent healthy. It's highly unlikely that the Cowboys let Elliott suit up for this game. The Cowboys don't need to risk Elliott's health with Tony Pollard playing this well as the backup. Fantasy managers should consider Pollard a fine RB1, assuming Elliott does sit out.

  • Cowboys Won't Take Any Chances With Ezekiel Elliott

It seems like Elliott is going to sit unless he is 100 percent healthy before game time. That being said, it sounds like Tony Pollard is headed towards another start. He'll be a fine RB1 for this upcoming matchup, so fantasy managers should stay tuned.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Is A Game-Time Decision

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is looking like a game-time decision for the Week 10 matchup against the Green Bay Packers. It sounds like the team wants to see how Elliott responds during pre-game workouts before they make a final decision. The 27-year-old missed the Week 8 contest before Dallas had a bye in Week 9. Tony Pollard would be in line for another start, assuming Elliott is unable to play. Pollard would have RB1 value without Elliott on the field. Fantasy managers will have to check back closer to game time on Sunday.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Officially Questionable Against Packers

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Green Bay Packers with his knee injury. ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer truly believes Elliott will be a game-time decision on Sunday afternoon, which makes him an even riskier fantasy option this weekend. The Cowboys fully expect The 27-year-old to return after missing the Week 8 game, but fantasy managers should be wary that Elliott will see a diminished backfield role coming off the Week 9 bye, especially since backup Tony Pollard dominated with 100-plus rushing yards and three touchdowns with Zeke out in Week 8. Elliott was limited in practice all week and profiles as a shaky RB2 play in fantasy if he returns.
