“He came in in really good shape. Hats off to him,” Jones said. “Obviously it was hot outside yesterday so we had a lot of players working through that heat. I think he’s going to be ready to go … Barring something unforeseen, he’s ready to play against the Giants.”
Jones was not going to get into the workload Elliott will have Sunday against the New York Giants, the story said, but one would have to think Pollard gets a few more touches than normal. Still, we list Elliott fourth on our Week 1, PPR RB list.
DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs Washington
The Cowboys are facing criticism again for the lack of carries for Ezekiel Elliot last week against Philly. He ended up with only 13 carries, but because he had seven catches, he did end up with 20 touches. Total yardage was 87 and zero touchdowns.
Elliot faces the Redskins who are ranked 29th in aFPA to running backs. He rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with Washington back in Week 2 and has had success against them during his career.
It seems every time Dallas is criticized for not getting Elliot enough, they feed him even more. Expect a huge game for him as the Cowboys have to win to still have a chance for the playoffs. Elliot ranks the highest fantasy running back for Week 17.
