The NFL is likely to review an incident in which Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott had a run-in with a concert security guard in Las Vegas to determine if he violated the terms of his previous suspension, according to two league sources. Elliott was briefly handcuffed earlier this month after bumping a security guard, but he wasn't arrested or charged. Sources close to Elliott said they don't think the language in Elliott's previous suspension supports discipline in light of the video footage. Elliott was previously suspended six games in 2017 for acts of physical abuse against an ex-girlfriend. When it comes down to it, it'll likely be up to commissioner Roger Goodell as to whether the NFL decides to discipline Elliott over this incident. Stay tuned for more details, but the top-three fantasy pick could be facing more discipline.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is unlikely to face any league discipline over his involvement in a May 19 incident at a Las Vegas music festival, in the opinion of team owner Jerry Jones.
Fantasy Spin: Of course, Jones was certain Elliott wouldn't be suspended for domestic-violence allegations in 2016, but he wound up serving a six-game ban late in 2017 after a circus-like litany of appeals and court rulings. This latest incident, though -- involving a shoving match with a event security officer -- isn't nearly as troubling and until further notice, Elliott should be one of the top handful of RBs off the board at the top of fantasy drafts.
The Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliott seem to be on the same page as far as discussions on a long-term contract extension go. However, the Cowboys have made it clear that quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper are at the front of the line for extensions this offseason. Elliott is one of the true workhorse backs in the NFL and at 23 years old will get a handsome raise whenever he gets an extension. He barely missed 1,000 yards in 2017 when he was suspended and has gone well over 1,000 yards rushing in his other two seasons. Elliott has 4,048 yards rushing (4.7 average) with 28 rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons. He had a career-high 77 receptions for 567 yards and three more touchdowns in 2018 and is a surefire top-three fantasy selection in 2019 drafts.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has not received a contract extension offer at this point, according to a source.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys likely will try to sign Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper before they sign Elliott. He will continue to be a big piece of their offense and should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed at a concert on Saturday after he had a minor altercation with a security guard. Video obtained by TMZ shows Elliott bodying the security guard backward into a metal fence. He was later released without being charged and went to his youth football camp in Las Vegas, according to his attorney. While Elliott was not formally charged with a crime, under the personal conduct policy, the NFL can punish a player even if he wasn't charged by the police. This isn't Elliott's first incident as the NFL suspended him for six games in 2017 for an incident involving his ex-girlfriend. This doesn't appear to be a major issue for Elliott but whenever his name pops up, it is a concern.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is a candidate for a contract extension, but executive vice president Stephen Jones said there is no timetable for an agreement.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott is under contract for two more seasons, so the Cowboys have other players they would like to sign before Elliott. He will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys and probably will be a first-round pick in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Spin: Elliott is one of, if not the, best option at the position in fantasy.
The Dallas Cowboys are open to finding a backup behind running back Ezekiel Elliott with Rod Smith still on the free-agent market. Elliott has won the rushing title in two of his first three seasons and hasn't missed a game due to injury, but the Cowboys need better insurance behind him. Dallas wants to find a quality backup, but they aren't sure if that'll come in free agency or through the draft. As of right now, Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn are the backups listed on the team's depth chart behind Elliott.
Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said that the team will pick up running back Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option. The 23-year-old has two 1,000-yard seasons in his three years in the NFL and ran 304 times for 1,434 yards and six touchdowns in his 15 games last year. He also caught a career-high 77 passes for an additional 567 yards and three scores. Elliott is one of the premier running backs in the NFL and should continue to be a high first-round pick in fantasy drafts this fall.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option will be exercised this offseason, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott could receive a long-term deal at some point this offseason but will be under contract for at least two more seasons. He is one of the best running backs in NFL and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's 77 catches in 2018 ranked 22nd in the NFL and were the fifth most among running backs.
Fantasy Spin: In addition to winning his second rushing title in three years, Elliott shattered his previous high in receptions by 45 catches. Even in PPR formats, he needs to be a top-five pick in 2019.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 20 times for 47 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 19 yards in a 30-22 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round Saturday, Jan. 12.
Fantasy Spin: The matchup looked great on paper, but the Rams made sure not to let Elliott beat them. Although his season ends on a sour note, Elliott will remain the focal point of the Dallas offense heading into 2019, and he should be a top-five pick in all fantasy formats.

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott ran the ball 26 times for 137 yards and a touchdown, adding four catches for 32 more yards. Elliott easily found room to run against the Seattle defense, and will certainly need to star in next week's game against either the Rams or the Saints if the Cowboys hope to continue in the playoffs. Elliott will be one of the best DFS choices at running back next week.
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 26 times for 137 yards and a touchdown and caught four passes for 32 yards in a 24-22 win over the Seattle Seahawks in the wild-card round Saturday, Jan. 5.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is interested in receiving a contract extension this offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Fantasy Spin: Elliott is currently on the third season of his rookie contract but it's understandable why he is interested in an extension now, given his heavy workload and effectiveness since entering the league. The 23-year-old merits serious consideration as the top overall pick for fantasy football leagues entering the 2019 season.
