Ezekiel Elliott Week 2 Outlook - Cowboys at Chargers

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Fri, Sep 17th 2021, 8:14am EDT

The folks who spent a top-six draft on Elliott might feel panicky after Zeke laid an egg in the Thursday-night opener, but they shouldn't. The Buccaneers had the stingiest run defense in the league last year and make it nearly impossible to do any business between the tackles. Expect Elliott to rebound against a Chargers defense that gave up 90 rushing yards to Antonio Gibson last week. Zeke dominated snaps in Week 1. He had an 84% snap share, while Tony Pollard was only on the field for 20 of the Cowboys' 83 offensive plays. Pollard has no stand-alone value with such a tiny snap share.
