RB - DAL
This Week Outlook
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 14 times for 42 yards and a touchdown while catching three of his four targets for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants.
Elliott dealt with injuries in 2020 and appeared banged up at times on Sunday, but he will now have a full offseason get healthy. For the year, he rushed 244 times for 979 yards and four touchdowns while catching 52 passes for 338 yards and two touchdowns.
Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 105 yards and caught all four of his targets for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the Eagles.
Elliott has topped 100 yards rushing just two times this season and now has 937 rushing yards in 14 games. The Cowboys are still technically alive in the NFC East playoff race, so Elliott is likely to play in Week 17 against the Giants.
Ezekiel Elliott (calf) will play in Week 16's game against the Eagles.
Elliott was deemed likely to play earlier in the day so no surprise here. After a huge Week 15, Tony Pollard may have carved out a slight role for himself. Elliot should be considered a risky RB2 in this matchup against the Eagles.
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) will play in Sunday's Week 16 contest against the Eagles.
Elliott is expected to play Sunday after missing Week 15's win over the 49ers with a calf injury. Cowboys backup RB Tony Pollard performed well in Elliott's absence, racking up 132 total scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. Zeke will reclaim his role as the Cowboys primary RB, but Pollard could see more touches on Sunday. Elliott is a borderline RB2 and currently 29th among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings for Week 16.
The Cowboys have called up practice squad RB Sewo Olonilua to the active roster as insurance in case RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) can’t play against the Eagles in Week 16.
The Cowboys made the same exact move in Week 15, calling up Olonilua, and Elliott didn’t play in that game. This could be a similar situation, but is certainly not a guarantee. Keep an eye on this dynamic situation, but it’s at least noteworthy that Elliott could miss his second straight game. Tony Pollard would once again become a workhorse back in Week 16 against the Eagles should Elliott sit.
