  • Ezekiel Elliott Remains Heavily Involved In Week 18

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 13 times for 54 yards during Sunday's loss to the New York Jets. He also caught five of seven targets for an additional 27 yards through the air. The veteran running back logged yet another start with Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) sidelined and maintained a key role as unfavorable weather conditions interrupted the passing attack. He was particularly impactful in PPR leagues where he added extra points for his five catches. He's headed for free agency where he'll likely earn a spot in a committee or split backfield.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Remains Appealing Fantasy Option As Lead Back

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott will continue to operate as the lead running back for Week 18 against the New York Jets with Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) sidelined. Elliott has produced inconsistent results on the ground this year, but his impressive pass-catching role and red-zone usage allow him to sneak into the RB2 tier for fantasy purposes. He remains a solid option this Sunday, especially with a strong Jets secondary and poor weather conditions likely prompting the Patriots to run more than pass. Fantasy managers should feel comfortable starting Elliott in most formats.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Salvages Week 17 Outing With Touchdown

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 14 times for 39 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills. He also caught one of two targets for a gain of six yards through the air. The veteran running back has filled in admirably for Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle), though he did take a major step back in the passing attack on Sunday. He had been averaging 6.3 catches over his last four games before this week's one-reception performance. Nevertheless, he salvaged his fantasy performance by finding the end zone and should continue to be viewed as a low-end RB2 option against the New York Jets during next week's season finale.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Remains Appealing Option For Week 17

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott (illness) logged a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report. He will play versus the Buffalo Bills, ranking as a solid RB2 option in most fantasy leagues. The 28-year-old has looked great operating as the Patriots' top running back with Rhamondre Stevenson sidelined. In particular, he has been a key pass-catching threat over his last four games, garnering 30 targets, 25 receptions, 166 receiving yards, and two touchdowns during that span. He should continue to be started in most leagues while operating as one of Bailey Zappe's top options in the passing attack.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Under The Weather Thursday

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott (illness) was out sick at practice on Thursday. Elliott's status now bears watching for Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills this Sunday, but he should be fine to suit up. Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is now on Injured Reserve, ensuring that Zeke will finish out the 2023 season as New England's workhorse back. The 28-year-old veteran has looked better this year for the Patriots, but he hasn't been very efficient on the ground in recent weeks. He's salvaged his fantasy lines the last three games by catching 21 of 25 targets for 126 yards and two touchdowns. As long as Elliott plays this weekend, which he should, he will remain in play as a low-end RB2 in a weak offense against a rising defense. In Week 7 against Buffalo, Elliott had 11 carries for 31 yards rushing and his second rushing touchdown of the year.

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    The Patriots added to their defense on Wednesday by claiming cornerback Marco Wilson off waivers from the Cardinals. The corresponding move will leave the team’s offense shorthanded, however. New England placed running back Rhamondre Stevenson on injured reserve, confirming that he will not return this season. The Patriots have only a pair of games remaining in what has […]

  • Ezekiel Elliott Catches Nine Passes Versus Denver

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 12 times for just 27 yards during Sunday's win over the Denver Broncos. He was much more productive through the air, turning 11 targets into nine catches, 33 receiving yards, and one touchdown. The veteran continued to see a very heavy workload with Rhamondre Stevenson (sidelined), once again emerging as one of Bailey Zappe's favorite targets in the passing game. Even though his yardage totals weren't great, he salvaged his fantasy showing with the touchdown and nine receptions. Fantasy managers should continue to view Elliott as a low-end RB2 option for the duration of Stevenson's absence.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson Remains Sidelined On Thursday

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) remained absent once again during Thursday's practice session. This isn't too surprising, given the Patriots said back in Week 13 that Stevenson would miss several weeks. The Pats have nothing to play for besides good draft positioning, so they are highly unlikely to be in any rush to bring Stevenson back. His absence would mean that Ezekiel Elliott would continue to start in the backfield. He's not the same player he used to be, but Elliott is still a possible RB2 against the shaky Denver Broncos run defense in Week 16.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson Out Of Practice Again

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) is missing a second consecutive day of practice leading up to their Sunday night game against the Denver Broncos. Stevenson suffered an ankle sprain in Week 13 against the Los Angeles Chargers and has missed the following two games. A second DNP in a row does not offer much hope that fantasy managers will see him back in Week 16. Should Stevenson sit out his third consecutive game, Ezekiel Elliott will be the Patriots' top option out of the backfield. Elliott was the top-scoring running back in Week 14, accumulating 140 scrimmage yards and a score. He only logged 46 yards on 16 touches in Week 15, making him a volatile option against a Denver Broncos in Week 16.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Struggles In Rushing Attack Sunday

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 11 times for just 25 yards during Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. On a more positive note, he also caught four of five targets for an additional 21 yards through the air. While the veteran did take a major step back from his breakout game in Week 14, he still flashed something that should give fantasy managers optimism: a significant role in the receiving game. Elliott now has 16 catches for 133 yards over his last three games alone. In PPR leagues, that should keep him in the low-end RB2 tier for Week 16 against the Denver Broncos, assuming Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) remains sidelined.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Dominant While Earning 29 Touches

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 22 times for 68 yards during Thursday's upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was also quite impressive in the passing game, catching seven of eight targets for 72 receiving yards and one touchdown. The veteran running back saw a drastically increased role in Week 14 with Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) sidelined and wasted no time getting involved. Elliott was the Patriots' top weapon on offense and has delivered key production as a pass-catcher midway through his age-28 season. Even with a trickier matchup against the Chiefs on tap, Elliott will remain a low-end fantasy RB2 option in Week 15.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Headed For Lead-Back Role

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott will operate as the team's No. 1 running back on Thursday night versus the Pittsburgh Steelers after Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) was ruled out. While JaMycal Hasty and Ty Montgomery may earn a few snaps, this backfield belongs to Elliott and he could log around 20 touches, much like he did last week versus the Los Angeles Chargers. As the Patriots' passing game continues to falter, expect them to go run-heavy against a Steelers team that is also struggling to find its identity on offense. Pittsburgh's defense is allowing 4.24 YPC to running backs this season, meaning Elliott could have a big game. He's also an appealing option in short-yardage passing situations and around the goal line. Fantasy managers should view him as a mid-to-low RB2 for the time being.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Should Be Good To Go For Thursday

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    After being listed as limited on Monday's estimated injury report, New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott (thigh) was removed from Tuesday's report. It should mean that Elliott won't be in danger of missing the Thursday night clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers to kick off Week 14 action. Meanwhile, fellow backfield mate Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) will miss at least a few weeks due to the high-ankle sprain he suffered in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. The 28-year-old Elliott will see a boost in fantasy because of the increase in volume as New England's primary back, but the Pats offense has been the worst in the league and Elliott is averaging under 4.0 yards per carry on the year. Consider him a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex in Week 14.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson To Miss A Few Weeks

    Headshot for Ezekiel Elliott

    Tests revealed that New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson (ankle) suffered a right high-ankle sprain in the Week 13 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and is now expected to miss "a few weeks," according to a source. High-ankle sprains usually keep players out anywhere from three to five weeks, so fantasy managers realistically may not get Stevenson back before the end of their fantasy season. With the 25-year-old sidelined, Ezekiel Elliott (thigh) should operate as the team's primary back, beginning this Thursday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ty Montgomery and JaMycal Hasty will battle for change-of-pace duties behind him. Given New England's terrible offense and tough matchup against Pittsburgh, Elliott will merely be a touchdown-dependent RB3/flex with the added volume. UDPATE: Stevenson didn't practice on Tuesday.
