2022 Outlook
Depth Chart
Is this the year when the wheels finally fall all the way off for Ezekiel Elliott? Many fantasy managers seem to think so as the former perennial first-round fantasy pick is now falling to the third and even fourth round in some drafts. It seems as though the late-season dropoff in his statistical output is still fresh in the minds of fantasy gamers, many of whom seem to be expecting that Tony Pollard will take over the backfield this season.

Elliott's statistical descent in 2021 saw him start the season averaging well over 5.0 yards per carry over the first month of the season, only to fall to 3.7 yards per carry over the remainder of the year. Dallas' ever-deteriorating offensive line certainly played a part in that, but we shouldn't expect that to be any better this season. The Cowboys lost both right tackle La'el Collins and left guard Connor Williams this offseason and while they did draft Tyler Smith in the first round of the NFL Draft, there's likely to be some growing pains along this offensive line here in 2022.

If you're looking for some positive outlooks on Elliott, consider that he battled through multiple injuries throughout the 2021 season, including a partially torn PCL early in the year, and was still able to start all 17 games. In fact, other than a suspension which saw him miss six games in his second season, Elliott has never missed more than one game in any season throughout his professional career. Major injuries are mostly unpredictable, but Elliott has shown us that he is more than willing to play through a ton of minor injuries that would knock most players out for multiple weeks. Having that type of reliable workhorse in your fantasy backfield is always nice, even if he's not the same guy who led the league in rushing earlier in his career.

While Pollard is almost certainly going to break into Elliott's workload, Elliott is still listed atop the depth chart and he's still likely to see a 60/40 backfield split at worst in 2022. With the Cowboys still expected to be a pretty good offense, he'd need to be injured or lose his starting role in order to not return value given his offseason ADP.
