Head coach Jason Garrett said he anticipates running back Ezekiel Elliott practicing Monday after dealing with some hip soreness after the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day win over Washington.
“His hips were bothering him, so that’s why we kept him out of practice yesterday,” Garrett said. “He looks better this morning.”
Elliott has shouldered a heavy workload in the last three games over a 12-day stretch, carrying the ball 68 times along with 18 receptions, according to the story. It looks like he'll be fine for an important home game against the Saints this week.
DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 19 at Los Angeles Rams
The critics have called out the Cowboys at times for getting off the Ezekiel Elliot bandwagon. But in recent weeks, Elliot has been the Cowboys offense. He had 169 total yards last week and 30 touches. Expect more of the same in Los Angeles.
The Rams are 20th in aFPA to running backs, but have allowed more yards per carry than any team in the NFL. Elliot will get his 30 touches again and this makes him one of the best fantasy plays for Week 18. Start him in all leagues and formats. Big day coming up for Elliot.
