Ezekiel Elliott could holdout without new contract

Ezekiel Elliott has reportedly told those close to him that he plans a holdout this NFL season if not given a new contract.

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.

Ezekiel Elliott meeting with Roger Goodell on Tuesday

Todd Archer of ESPN reports Ezekiel Elliott is meeting with Roger Goodell on Tuesday to discuss an incident that took place earlier this off-season.

Fantasy Impact

Elliott was briefly detained by police back in May. The incident occurred in Las Vegas and the running back was ultimately released without charges. This was supposedly a minor issue but Elliott has been suspended by the league before. We should know more after tomorrow's meeting.

Ezekiel Elliott unlikely to receive extension this season

Dan Graziano of ESPN doesn't believe Ezekiel Elliott will get a contract extension this season.

Fantasy Impact

"Zeke" is under team control for two more years and it's possible he plays out his entire rookie deal before getting an extension. Dallas is prioritizing long term deals for Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper at the moment. Elliott also has a less than stellar off-the-field history, which wouldn't help contract negotiations.
