Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has "had to work himself back into playing shape" this spring, according to TheMMQB.com's Albert Breer. It was a parenthetical comment by Breer without any further details. But interesting nonetheless. Elliott has had an eventful offseason that's included a pair of car crashes and a video of him pulling down a woman's shirt at a St. Patrick's Day parade. He certainly wouldn't be the first guy to rest on his laurels after a big rookie season. We'll keep an eye on Elliott when the Cowboys report to training camp next month.
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott did not sustain a concussion in Sunday's car accident, at least according to RBs coach Gary Brown. Zeke is being held out of OTAs this week with what HC Jason Garrett termed "soreness and neck stiffness." The team is hoping to get him back on the field next week. For now, consider this a non-issue for Elliott's 2017 fantasy outlook.
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was a passenger in a car involved in a minor accident on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Elliott didn't sustain any serious injuries, but he did take a hit to the head and is being evaluated. If he's diagnosed with a concussion, that could come into play if he suffers another one down the line. Elliott is being held out of OTAs this week. The story won't impact his spot in our 2017 fantasy football rankings, but it's at least something to file away.
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.
