  • Ezekiel Elliott Shuts Down Reduced Role Speculation

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was quick to respond to Ed Werder's Twitter post regarding a potentially reduced role for the former rushing champ, quipping "we all gonna eat." Though Elliott is a shoo-in, first-round pick in fantasy drafts for the 2020 campaign, many still wonder how he will co-exist on an offense that has plenty of mouths to feed, notably Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and 17th overall pick, CeeDee Lamb. Elliott finished 2019 as a top-five back in the majority of formats. Under new head coach Mike McCarthy, who has overseen some productive runners throughout his career, the 25-year-old could be in store for another productive year.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Displeased With Lack Of Respect

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott urged his critics to "check the stats," a comment made toward members of the media who he feels often criticize his level of performance. The 24-year-old does have a leg to stand on, nonetheless, as he has been one of the most impactful rushers throughout the entire league during his tenure. He finished 2019 with nearly 1,400 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns off of 301 attempts. He also added 420 yards and two additional scores as a receiver and was also one of the most dynamic players inside the 20-yard line. Regarding Elliott's fantasy projection for 2020, he should be drafted within the top-five in the majority of leagues, with his only potential downfall being the departure of former head coach Jason Garrett, who is now the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Not Happy With Coach's Ranking

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was recently ranked as the 11th best at his position by an anonymous NFL offensive coach. The coach would go on to state that the 24-year-old "doesn't look as strong anymore. Feels like he's about 60 to 70 percent of what he was." Elliott was quick to dismiss these comments, but some fantasy managers may pay attention to these remarks, especially if they are drafting after the selections of Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley. The fifth-year back did have one of the most productive years as a professional in 2019, finishing with 1,357 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns off of 301 attempts. He also added 54 catches for 420 yards and two additional scores. While those numbers don't indicate a downward trend, the former Buckeye will be without the guidance of former head coach Jason Garrett in 2020, who is now the offensive coordinator for the New York Giants.

  • Ezekiel Elliott "Feeling Fine"

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is reportedly "feeling fine" after he was recently diagnosed with COVID-19. With Elliott being young and in peak physical condition, the 24-year-old shouldn't suffer from any long term adverse effects of the virus. The former Sooner could be in store for his most prominent campaign to date in 2020 under new head coach Mike McCarthy and with the team's plethora of quality of receivers, which could ultimately open up the run game even more throughout the season.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Among Players To Test Positive For COVID-19

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is one of the players from the Cowboys who has tested positive for the coronavirus, according to his agent, Rocky Arceneaux. However, Arceneaux said that Elliott is feeling good. Sources said that several Cowboys and Texans players have tested positive for COVID-19 recently, but none of the players are believed to have been in their team facilities. It's another reminder that the virus is still out there and why the NFL isn't allowing team minicamps this month. Virtual offseason programs will continue for most teams until later this month. The NFL is hoping that they can begin training camp on schedule in late July.
