Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott back at practice - [Full Article]

As expected, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott returned to the practice field Tuesday.

NFL Media's Jane Slater reported that the rookie is participating in individual drills after dealing with a hamstring tweak.

The No. 4 overall pick had tweaked his hamstring two weeks ago. The Cowboys planned to take it slowly with their stud rookie runner.

Elliott took part in some walk-throughs, but after missing the team's first preseason game, getting him back on the practice field in pads is a positive step.

Fantasy Impact: 

Expect the Cowboys to play it safe with their top pick, especially given that hamstrings can be a nagging, persistent injury if not fully healed.
When finally healed, Elliott has the talent to be a three-down workhorse back behind one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and the focal point of Dallas' offense. Those are all reasons why is one of our top fantasy backs to draft.
