Draft note
by John Paulsen
With a possible suspension no longer a factor, a case can be made that Elliott should be the No. 1 overall pick in 2019. In 10 games after the Amari Cooper trade, he averaged 27.6 touches for 144.2 total yards and 0.7 touchdowns. His per game production only trailed Todd Gurley's. The Dallas offense looks like a much safer bet than the Giants’ as well, so Elliott compares favorably to Saquon Barkley.

DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Ezekiel Elliot continues to be one of the most consistent fantasy players in the NFL. He has averaged over 100 yards rushing all three of his seasons and recorded over 2,000 yards from scrimmage last season thanks to more involvement in the passing game. Elliot also had a career-high 381 touches. More important, he was able to play a full season after being suspended six games in 2017. It is noteworthy that Elliot is a true every-down back as the other running backs on the Cowboys roster see little playing time.

Fantasy Downside

Obviously, Elliot’s yardage totals are among the best at his position. The one weakness last season in his numbers was his touchdowns. He found the end zone nine times in 2018, the same amount as in 2017 with six fewer games. Elliot scored 16 his rookie season. There is also the off-the-field issues for Elliot including a recent incident this summer in Las Vegas.

2019 Bottom Line

As long as Elliot stays on the field, he is the No. 1 fantasy running back in the NFL. Expect him to eclipse the 2,000 total yard mark again and the touchdowns to be higher. He should be the No. 1 overall pick in any draft although many are taking Saquon Barkley over him at this point.
