Fantasy Football Player Notes

2021 Rest of Season Rankings

Ezekiel Elliott Note

Week 14 set up favorably for Elliott as the Cowboys were without Tony Pollard due to injury. Unfortunately, Zeke is playing through an injury of his own and it has completely ruined his burst as a rusher. He hasn't topped 51 rushing yards since Week 6 and should be viewed as a TD-dependent fantasy option throughout the playoffs.

CeeDee Lamb Note

Nobody is suggesting to sit Lamb in Week 17 against Arizona, but his fantasy campaign has been a disappointment. The sophomore receiver is undoubtedly talented, but Dallas' run-first philosophy combined with a plethora of pass catchers has given him a dreadful floor. Lamb has been held under 25 receiving yards just three time this season, which is the same number of times he has topped 100 yards. The upside is still there, of course, but he has played more like a volatile WR2 throughout 2021.

Tony Pollard Note

The 24-year-old looked destined to take over for Ezekiel Elliott earlier this season. However, Zeke just kept playing through his knee injury. Pollard suffered a foot injury himself, and it just doesn't seem as if he'll be worth starting in Week 17 against the Cardinals. Perhaps 2022 will be the year that he becomes a weekly, reliable fantasy option.

Dalton Schultz Note

The return of Michael Gallup could wind up having a major impact on Schultz, who took a backseat in the receiving game in Week 10. Schultz saw just 6.1% of the targets after being at 19.8% from Weeks 2-9 sans Gallup. Game script was weird in this one as Dallas didn't need to do much in the second half, but this isn't what Schultz managers were hoping for. He's still tied to an elite offense, which keeps him in the low-end TE1 conversation, but expectations should be tempered with all of the Cowboys pass catchers healthy at the moment.

Dak Prescott Note

Dallas' desire to be a run-heavy offense in neutral game scripts means that Prescott either needs things to go haywire (such as what happened in Week 6 against New England) or he needs to rely on extreme efficiency. Ultimately, this makes Prescott more of a low-end QB1 rather than the high-end option he was drafted as. However, he's more capable of blowup performances than the other low-end QB1 options ranked around him.
