Ezekiel Elliott Week 4 Outlook - Commanders at Cowboys

By Derek Brown (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 29th 2022, 1:05pm EDT

Before shutting down Miles Sanders last week on the ground, the Commanders were also having issues defending the run. They still grade out as a plus matchup for this rushing attack. The Commanders are 24th and 29th in second-level and open field yards. They have the 14th-highest explosive run rate and rank 11th in rushing yards allowed per game (third-highest yards per carry). After RB49 and RB43 finishes to open the season, he was the RB16 last week in another good matchup after he got into the endzone. He is clearly on the back nine of his career. Out of 59 running backs with at least ten carries, he's 33rd in yards after contact per attempt and 42nd in PFF's elusive rating. Elliott has disintegrated into less explosive Damien Harris. Elliott is a touchdown-dependent RB3.
