Ezekiel Elliott is coming off a down season where some of this could be related to the fact he dealt with a partially torn PCL for much of the season (since Week 4). The spliced-up workload and his declining effectiveness could result from the injury or his advancing age and the toll that the NFL has taken on him. Elliott has amassed 1,938 touches (22 per game) over his six-year career, never handling less than 268 touches in any season. Elliott should be viewed as an RB2 in many formats that could slowly dissolve into a high-end RB3 if Tony Pollard gets more run in 2022.

Ezekiel Elliott played with a torn PCL since Week 4 of 2021 season

Per Jon Machota of The Athletic, RB Ezekiel Elliott played with a torn PCL since Week 4 of the 2021 season as reported by head coach Mike McCarthy but should be completely healthy for the start of next season.

Fantasy Impact

This is a bit of an interesting note in regards to Elliott that seemingly wasn't reported in season but could explain why the star Dallas RB didn't get his typical volume at times and why backup RB Tony Pollard was more involved in 2021 than ever before. For what it's worth Elliott did still finish the 2021 season with over 1000 yards rushing and can have Top 5 RB upside when fully healthy. The real question is how will the usage of Elliott and Pollard evolve in the future which we won't know until closer to the start of next year.
