Ezekiel Elliott Note

The loss of Dak Prescott was the start of his nightmare, but it's only gotten worse, losing left tackle Tyron Smith, and then both Zack Martin and Cam Erving in the first quarter of the Thanksgiving game. At some point, it doesn't even matter who the running back is; they're going to struggle playing behind backups. The only good news is that he leads the NFL with 19 carries inside the five-yard line. Elliott has now finished with fewer than 55 rushing yards in six of the last nine games. He's also failed to record more than 18 receiving yards in six of the last seven games. Did I mention that he's scored one touchdown over his last six games? It's bad, guys. And now he has to go on the road to play against the Ravens. They've been without interior linemen Brandon Williams and Calais Campbell over the last couple weeks, which has led to them allowing a bit more production, but they've still allowed just the 11th-fewest fantasy points to running backs. With that being said, there have been eight running backs who've seen at least 12 carries against the Ravens, and each of them have finished as top-24 running backs, including Damien Harris. I suppose the 4.34 yards per carry they've allowed isn't anything to be scared of when it comes to Elliott's floor. Because of that, you can keep Elliott in lineups as an RB2, albeit a low-end RB2.
