Fantasy Impact:

The unexpected news comes from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. It’s unclear if Zeke’s desire to hold out stems from Melvin Gordon’s recent holdout announcement or the fact that the Cowboys have pushed his contract talks to the back burner while focusing on DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, and Amari Cooper. The situation is one to monitor closely, but Elliott hasn’t made any public plans to sit out yet. He’s still worth a top-3 pick in all formats until further notice.
