Player Outlook

Ezekiel Elliott is a no-doubt-about-it top-four Fantasy pick, if not the No. 1 overall choice regardless of format. He's the most consistent player in Fantasy, hitting 10-plus non-PPR points in 37 of 40 career games. That's thanks to recording 100 total yards in 29 career outings. The Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines out there, Elliott is just 24 years old and is expected to continue his increased role in the passing game this season. After two improbable years with just nine total touchdowns, expect Elliott to easily find 1,500 total yards, 12-plus scores and become a reason why you win your league.

Player News
  • The NFL likely will review a May 19 incident involving Elliott and a concert security guard, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports. Briefly handcuffed after bumping the security guard, Elliott ultimately wasn't arrested or charged with any crime. His history of league discipline could be a complicating factor, but Cowboys executive Stephen Jones said the incident won't impact the team's negotiations with the running back on a long-term contract. Dallas recently exercised its fifth-year option to keep Elliott under team control through 2020. The running back will turn 24 in July and appears headed for another busy campaign after the Cowboys declined to make backfield depth an offseason priority. Rod Smith was allowed to leave in free agency and was replaced by fourth-round pick Tony Pollard -- who was mostly a gadget player at Memphis -- and seventh-round pick Mike Weber.

  • Elliott was detained but eventually released without charge Sunday morning at a music festival in Las Vegas, NFL.com reports. For a player that has served a six-game suspension due to violations of the personal conduct policy, Elliott likely will be scrutinized by the NFL for this incident with a security guard. That said, it appears to be minor in nature, as evidenced by team president Stephen Jones telling Todd Archer of ESPN.com that the incident won't affect negotiations with the running back on a long-term deal. One of a handful of Cowboys approaching the end of their rookie contracts, Elliott has racked up 5,247 yards from scrimmage and 34 touchdowns on 1,003 touches in 40 career games.

  • The Cowboys exercised Elliott's fifth-year option Tuesday, keeping him under contract through 2020, Rob Phillips of the team's official site reports. The decision to pick up the $9.1 million option was an easy one for the Cowboys, as the 23-year-old has established himself as one of the NFL's few three-down bellcows since entering the league in 2016. The option may end up serving merely as a placeholder while Elliott and the Cowboys turn their attention to working out a long-term extension that will keep the Ohio State product in Dallas for the duration of his prime.

  • Team executive Stephen Jones said Wednesday that the Cowboys expect to pick up the fifth-year option on Elliott's contract before the May 3 deadline, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Since he was selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft, Elliott is the only player in the league with more than 1,000 touches (1,003, to be exact), through which he's produced 5,247 yards from scrimmage and 34 touchdowns in 40 games. Those numbers make the Cowboys' upcoming decision a no-brainer, especially with DeMarcus Lawrence's long-term extension out of the way. Aside from Lawrence and Elliott, the team also may seek to lock Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper into long-term deals.

  • Elliott is present Monday for the beginning of the Cowboys' voluntary offseason program, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Elliott hopes to sign a contract extension this offseason but won't apply pressure in the form of a holdout. He's technically entering the final season of his rookie contract, but it's a given that Dallas exercises the fifth-year option to keep him locked in through 2020. With defensive end Demarcus Lawrence (shoulder) signed for five years, the Cowboys now need to work out long-term agreements for Elliott, Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper.
