In his NFL Scouting Combine story, ESPN's Matthew Berry talked about RB Ezekiel Elliott. "...the internal thought in Dallas is that Zeke is still a legit RB1 and that an improved offensive line this season (and Zeke being fully healthy) will help a lot. You'll still see a lot of Tony Pollard, of course, but the expectation is Elliott still gets a ton of work in 2022, including all the goal-line action. At least for this season, the "death of Zeke's value as a fantasy RB1 narrative" has been overblown. If his current ADP holds, he'll be a value in drafts come August."
Monitor best ball rankings/drafts early and see if the Cowboys add o-line depth once free agency starts.
DAL RB Ezekiel Elliott - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 2 vs. Washington Commanders
Ezekiel Elliott looked rather solid in the running game last week. Recording 15 carries for 73 yards and a score, he gave fantasy managers a quality outing. While he is still splitting touches with Tony Pollard, it appears as though the goal line work belongs to him.
This week we may be banking on a touchdown for Elliott to pay off as Washington held running back Miles Sanders to just 46 yards on the ground last week. If you have him you are starting him as an RB2, but we may need to temper our expectations this week.
