Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries and added six receptions for 33 yards in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott also fumbled twice, losing one.
Fantasy Spin: Dak Prescott converted three short touchdown runs, so Elliott's day could've been much bigger than it was. As it is, his fantasy owners will have to settle for another day in which he easily topped 20 fantasy points in PPR formats. Few fantasy running backs in recent memory possess such a high floor and do so without durability concerns. He's will be a no-brainer top-five option yet again in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown in Sunday's incredible comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott ran the ball 22 times for 89 yards and a score, adding six catches for 33 more yards. Quarterback Dak Prescott ended up scoring three of his own rushing touchdowns, so this could have been an even bigger game for Elliott, but anyone who had him in their fantasy lineups likely wasn't too disappointed. Elliott gets a tough matchup with the Seahawks Defense next week but will be an RB1 like he is every time he suits up.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is an excellent fantasy option in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott checks in as the overall RB2 for a matchup with a Falcons Defense that ranked 29th against the run. "Zeke" scored two touchdowns in Week 1 and could easily match that this week as well. Almost never off the field when the team is on offense, Elliott has one of the highest running back floors in fantasy and one of the higher ceilings in standard scoring as well. He's a must-start in all leagues.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored two touchdowns on Sunday Night Football, essentially operating as the entire Dallas offense. "Zeke" ran the ball 22 times for 96 yards and a touchdown, adding three catches for 31 yards and another score. Elliott's rushing touchdown came on a one-yard plunge while his receiving score came on a 19-yard catch and run. Elliott looked good in this one, and didn't seem to suffer much from a Cowboys offensive line that somewhat surprisingly struggled. He'll be another excellent option in Week 2 against the Falcons.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 22 times for 96 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Sept. 13. He also caught three passes for 31 yards and a score.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott turned his 25 combined touches into 127 yards and two touchdowns, which is the kind of upper-tier production fantasy owners have come to expect from Dallas' workhorse. He remains a must-start RB1.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is, as usual, a great option for Week 1 fantasy lineups. Elliott dealt with a positive COVID-19 test along with other drama earlier in the offseason, but he is reportedly fine now and ready to go as one of the few running backs left in the league that rarely leaves the field. "Zeke" is the only running back in the NFL to finish in the top-six of fantasy running backs three times in the past five years. With what could be an even better offense in Dallas, Elliott could find himself in the top-six once again in 2020.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott talked about his willingness to do anything that will help the team win in an interview on 105.3 The Fan this Tuesday. Elliott said, "If they ever came to me and asked me to split carries, Im gonna do it. Im gonna do whatever they ask me to do to win. He discussed his love for being a "bell-cow" in the interview, but was clear about his desire to win above all else. Elliott's backup Tony Pollard could see a bit of an increased role this year, but it's hard to imagine Elliott ceding too much work due to how dominant he's been since he first set foot on an NFL field. Don't downgrade Elliott in your rankings because of this interview. He should still be considered right at the top of your draft.
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.
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.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott recorded 39 carries in which he ran at least five yards before getting contacted in 2019 - the most by any running back and second in the league overall - according to Pro Football Focus.
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.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is being sued by a pool cleaner that claims Elliott's dogs attacked her in March. In the court documents, the woman claims the Rottweiler bit her arm and dragged her ... before the two bulldogs began attacking her legs. Elliott adamantly denied wrongdoing through his lawyer, according to TMZ.
New Orleans Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins is concerned about the risks to players that will inevitably come with the NFL's return to play during the coronavirus pandemic. "I think until we get to the point where we have protocols in place, and until we get to a place as a country where we feel safe doing it, we have to understand that football is a nonessential business," Jenkins said. The veteran safety certainly isn't the only one worrying about the risks involved with a return to play, as Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott also voiced his apprehensions about the NFL's season. As the most contact-heavy sport, the NFL will have to be vigilant on handling any positive tests if they want to have a full season. The league is slated to meet with teams on Thursday to discuss reopening facilities.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (illness) said he is feeling better but is not able to work out at this point. Elliott said he dealt with coughing and shortness of breath for a day or two because of COVID-19.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott should be ready to go for the start of training camp and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys. He should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts and will be a No. 1 running back each week.
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 Buckeye 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.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has tested positive for COVID-19, according to his agent, Rocky Arceneaux. Elliott is 'feeling good,' per his representation.
Fantasy Spin: While it's hard to say what this really means for a world-class athlete at a position in which attrition is an enemy, Zeke should remain a highly drafted RB1. The long-term effects of coronavirus on the respiratory system is still being learned, and it should give gamers some level of concern. Monitor news reports on his situation.
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.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was ranked ahead of Saquon Barkley, Miles Sanders, and Adrian Peterson in a recent Sports Illustrated poll, a list compiled with the assistance of NFL scouts, ranking the best backs in the NFC East. The former Buckeye had one of his best seasons to date in 2019 by finishing with 1,357 yards and 12 touchdowns off of 301 touches. He also added 54 catches and two additional scores while also ranking sixth in YAC. With the 24-year-old also rumored to be more involved in the team's passing attack under new head coach Mike McCarthy, his stock appears higher than ever. While he is slotted behind Barkley in most fantasy rankings, a case can be easily made for Elliott to get picked up as the No. 2 overall draft choice behind Christian McCaffrey in fantasy drafts heading into the 2020 campaign.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had 355 touches in 2019, making him the first running back since Ladainian Tomlinson in 2006 and 2007 to have back-to-back seasons with at least 350 touches.
Fantasy Spin: Even with the Cowboys finishing with the second-most passing yards in the league, Elliott still handled a huge workload. The volume alone should keep him firmly in the RB1 mix in 2020.
