2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
The 2018 season turned out to be a combination of positive and negative trends for Ezekiel Elliott, as the former fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft finished outside the top 5 in fantasy running backs for the first time in his career.

Zeke won the rushing title over Saquon Barkley by a commanding 128 yards in one fewer game, but he managed just six rushing touchdowns and nine total TDs. The lack of rushing touchdowns appears to be an anomaly, as Dak Prescott did not see an increase in rushing TDs that would justify taking away opportunities from Zeke.

In the history of the NFL, there were 112 instances of a player rushing for at least 1400 yards on 300 or more carries in a season. Out of those 112 seasons, only seven times did a player manage to rush for six or fewer touchdowns.

Positive touchdown regression is in the mix for Zeke, especially when you consider the fact that he took a massive jump in receiving production in 2018 that should continue into 2019. After logging just 58 receptions in combined in his first two seasons, the Cowboys finally came to their senses and gave Zeke 77 receptions for 567 yards and three touchdowns last year.

It should also be noted that center Travis Frederick appears to be on the mend from missing all of last year due to effects from Guillain-Barre syndrome. His return to the middle of the Cowboy offensive line, along with an improved passing attack, should provide Zeke with ample opportunities this season.

News From The Past 90 Days
Ezekiel Elliott threatening to skip camp
Wants progress made on a contract extension
By: Doug Orth | Mon Jul 15, 7:20 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Chargers running back Melvin Gordon isn’t being coy about his intent to hold out until he gets a new deal. Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott apparently is, at least for now. Per a league source, Elliott has privately said that he will hold out of training camp unless he gets a new contract. (Pro Football Talk - Mike Florio)

FFToday's Take: Yahoo's Charles Robinson reports Zeke hasn't made a decision about whether to hold out of camp yet or not, but he definitely wants an extension "in the works." Elliott has two years left on his rookie deal and is actually making a smart play considering he will probably have nearly 800 more touches on his odometer if he waits until the end of his contract to get paid. He is unlikely to miss any regular-season games, but Tony Pollard and Mike Weber will likely split touches if he does.


No punishment for Zeke
No violation of the personal conduct policy
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jul 3, 2:20 pm

Dallas Cowboys
On Tuesday, as part of the review, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell met with Mr. Elliott to reinforce the standards of conduct expected of him and the consequences for failing to meet those standards. Commissioner Goodell determined there was no violation of the personal conduct policy and no further action is warranted. (Mike Garafolo on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: There will be no suspension for Ezekiel Elliott regarding the May incident in Las Vegas. Elliott was briefly detained by police regarding an altercation with a security guard. With no suspension, Elliott remains as a top pick in fantasy drafts this summer.


Ezekiel Elliott to meet with Goodell on Tuesday
Dallas RB detained by police in May
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Jul 1, 8:18 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will meet with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in New York on Tuesday to discuss a May incident in Las Vegas, per @toddarcher. Elliott was briefly detained by police; a player can be subject to penalty under personal conduct policy without arrest. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Elliott was detained by police in Las Vegas back in May regarding an altercation with a security guard at the Electric Daisy Carnival. Elliott wasn't arrested or charged with any crime but as we know, the league can suspend players as they see fit. Elliott was suspended in 2017 for six games. Stay tuned...
