Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott isn't expected to play more than 1-2 series in Sunday's finale against the Eagles, according to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio. It's a smart move for a team with nothing to gain. Elliott only figures to see a handful of carries, making him a weak fantasy play. It's unclear exactly how the backfield touches will be divvied between Darren McFadden, Alfred Morris and Lance Dunbar after Elliott exits.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Ellliott ran for 107 yards in 24 carries in Sunday night's loss to the Giants. That snapped a 3-game streak of less than 100 yards and marked just his 2nd triple-digit line among the past 7 games. Of course, Elliott surpassed 90 yards in 5 of 6 games before Sunday night and reached 86 yards in the other. He hasn't been a problem for any of his fantasy football owners.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Monday that RB Ezekiel Elliott's 2 fumbles last weekend won't impact his workload going forward. "He's a big man and he carries it properly," Jones said of the guy he spent the 4th overall pick on this spring. "He does a good job of finishing, which means he's trying to give the tacklers more than he's getting in terms of how you absorb hits. All of that makes him a sound ball carrier fumbling wise." Elliott has tallied 21 and 23 touches, respectively, in his first 2 NFL games. He's a good bet for another 20+ against a banged-up Bears defense this weekend.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott didn't get back on the field after his 2nd fumble in Sunday's win over the Redskins. RB Alfred Morris played the final 6:56, carrying 3 times for 7 yards and the game-winning score. “Obviously you have to protect the football,” HC Jason Garrett said. “That’s line one in football, and certainly line one for a running back. He’ll learn from the experiences.” Elliott didn't have ball-security problems at Ohio State, coughing it up just 4 times on 650 total touches. This looks like just an early-career blip. Look for Dallas to go back to its rookie RB in Week 3.

Cowboys insider Bryan Broaddus believes RB Ezekiel Elliott is still "not in football shape." That makes some sense considering he missed a couple of weeks of camp with a hamstring injury. Zeke looked just fine in his preseason debut on Thursday night, though, carrying 7 times for 48 yards. Broaddus says the rookie "can play better." That's a scary thought for opposing defenses. Elliott has the potential to lead all RBs in fantasy points.
