Elliott missed Week 15 against the 49ers but was trending towards returning for what amounts to an elimination game against the Eagles, though a Washington win eliminates both teams. After Tony Pollard’s big day against the 49ers, Dallas could split the workload pretty evenly between the two. The down year for Elliott was empathized by Alvin Kamara scoring more touchdowns against the Vikings (6) than Elliott has scored all season (5). Both backs are flex options for championship week.
DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. New York Giants
Ezekiel Elliott was questionable heading into last week but ultimately played and posted 19-105 rushing line with four receptions for 34 yards. While Tony Pollard looked great in Week 15, Elliott dominated the running back touches last week and will likely do so again this week against the Giants. The Cowboys are still clinging to playoff hopes so there shouldn’t be any concern about Elliott’s workload heading into the finale, and he should be able to muster enough production on his touches to return RB2 value. So long as Elliott is healthy and in the lineup, his usage still commands respect in fantasy, including in Week 17.
