  • Ezekiel Elliott To Be The Focus Of Run Game

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Saturday that running back Ezekiel Elliott "has to be the focus" in the run game this year. "He has to be the focal point" based on his work in the run game and pass game, Jones went on to say. "There is room for (Tony) Pollard while Zeke is in there." Elliott battled through a knee injury last year and Pollard was much more explosive and effective, but the Cowboys will continue to lean on Elliott. The 27-year-old had his fourth 1,000-yard season in 2021 and had 12 total touchdowns, but even if he remains the focal point, Pollard will get his touches, too. Zeke is no longer a slam-dunk RB1 in fantasy, but he should be a solid RB2 target in drafts this fall.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Not Worried About Contract, Future

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott isn't worried about his contract or future with the organization. "I think it is a big season, but I think you can't look too far down the road," Elliott said, "I think if I handle my business every day, then I'll be in a pretty good situation at the end of the season." The 27-year-old is set to make 12.4 million this year, fully guaranteed. The veteran has had some disappointing seasons during his career. But the former Buckeye may be extra motivated to produce with no more guaranteed cash remaining on his deal beyond the 2022-23 campaign. However, if Elliott doesn't deliver, Tony Pollard may receive more opportunities out of the backfield. Even worse, he may get sent packing.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Having "Tremendous Offseason"

    Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said that running back Ezekiel Elliott has had a "tremendous offseason." Quarterback Dak Prescott said he expects Elliott to have his best season in 2022. "I think the biggest thing with Zeke is he's completely healthy now and he's had a tremendous offseason," McCarthy said. The three-time Pro Bowler had a career-low 237 carries for 1,002 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns, while adding 47 receptions for 287 yards and two more TDs through the air in 17 regular season games. The 26-year-old had his workload managed in the second half of the season while dealing with nagging injuries, and backup Tony Pollard looked more explosive a lot of the time. Elliott has reached 1,000 yards rushing in four of his six NFL seasons, but even if he's healthy, Pollard figures to continue cutting into his workload, making him an RB2 now instead of a clear RB1.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Has Something To Prove

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, who suffered a partially torn PCL in his knee just four weeks into last season, played through the pain through the rest of the year and the playoffs. As a result, he put up numbers that weren't up to his usual standard, and he's motivated to prove he has more in the tank in 2022. Elliott finished with the seventh-most rushing yards in the league and was tied for seventh in the NFL in rushing touchdowns. The standards are high for the former first-rounder who has rushed for over 900 yards in all six of his seasons and over 1,300 yards in three of them. After months of rehab, Elliott looks fully healed, and head coach Mike McCarthy claims that Elliott clocked 22 mph in a recent practice. Still, we could see more of a shared workload between Elliott and Tony Pollard in 2022.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Receives Vote Of Confidence

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott hasn't been as dominant over the last few seasons. After running for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns during his rookie campaign, the former Buckeye has battled injuries over the years. Elliott's production has also sizzled to some degree. However, the 33-year-old recently received a welcome endorsement from teammate Dak Prescott, who believes the back will have the best year of his career in 2022, primarily now that he's healthy. Elliott finished last season by narrowly rushing for over 1,000 yards while racking up 12 total touchdowns. The veteran is no longer considered a must-have fantasy target for managers, but he has all the potential in the world. Nonetheless, as long as Elliott remains free of ailments this season, he could quickly regain his status as an elite fantasy presence, especially in PPR formats.
