After serving a six-game suspension, Ezekiel Elliott due back at Cowboys’ training complex this morning.

Related players: Alfred Morris, Rod Smith

Fantasy Impact:

The team hadn't had contact with Elliott during the suspension, but he was reportedly working on losing weight outside the country for the last six weeks. Elliott should be a nice addition to fantasy lineups in Week 16 against the Seahawks, who were just lit up by the Rams in Week 15. One would think Elliott gets a nice workload, but maybe because it's his first week back, the Cowboys ease him back in with Morris and Smith still getting some touches. Either way, Elliott is shaping up to be a solid play for what is likely your fantasy finals.

Scouting Report

Week 17 at Philadelphia Eagles

It will be interesting to see how Dallas uses Ezekiel Elliott in a meaningless game. He did get 28 touches in his return last week, but that wasn't enough to get the Cowboys a win. Elliott will also have to face an Eagles defense ranked fifth in aFPA to running backs.

The Cowboys have already stated Elliott will play, but don't expect the same amount of touches as you are used to seeing. Start him in a tough matchup as a low-end RB2 for Week 17.
