Elliott carried 12 times for 45 yards and caught one of two targets for an additional six yards during Sunday's 25-3 loss to Washington. Elliott struggled to the tune of 3.8 yards per carry against a ferocious defensive front, and although he technically avoided turning the ball over, he mishandled an inaccurate pass from Andy Dalton (head) that resulted in an interception in the red zone. To make matters worse, Dalton left the game after taking a cheap shot to the head on a slide and rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci struggled mightily as his replacement. Elliott's fantasy value has taken a large downturn over the last couple of weeks as a result of the tribulation his team has experienced at the quarterback position, and he could be in for another tough outing next Sunday night against the Eagles if the play under center if similarly poor.
Elliott rushed 12 times for 49 yards and brought in eight of 11 targets for 31 yards in the Cowboys' 38-10 loss to the Cardinals on Monday night. He also lost two fumbles. Not only did Elliott produce a season-low rushing yardage total, but the two lost fumbles put a serious crimp in any chances of the Cowboys offense finding some continuity in its first game with Andy Dalton as the starter. Elliott first coughed up the ball after a short reception late in the first quarter, leading to Arizona's first touchdown of the night, and his second fumble on the very next drive set up Kyler Murray and company at the Dallas 27-yard line, enviable field position that they would cash in on as well. Game script eventually turned Elliott into much more receiver than runner, and he'll look to atone for his poorest performance of the season at the expense of the Washington Football Team in a Week 7 road matchup.
Elliott carried the ball 19 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns and caught one of two targets for 14 yards in Sunday's 37-34 win over the Giants. After plowing into the end zone from a yard out in the second quarter, Elliott scored his second TD in the third on an emotional 12-yard run, capping the drive on which Dak Prescott suffered a likely season-ending ankle injury. With Andy Dalton now forced to take the reins of the Dallas offense, Elliott could be leaned on even more heavily to help steady things while the team adjusts to its new QB, beginning in Week 6 against Arizona.
Elliott carried 12 times for 54 yards and caught all eight of his targets for 71 additional yards during Sunday's 49-38 loss to the Browns. He also lost a fumble and caught a two-point conversion. Elliott managed a respectable 4.5 yards per carry, but he saw his attempts limited as his team yet again played from behind for most of the game. He was quite active as a pass catcher, however, and made his largest contribution in that regard since Week 15 of the 2018 season. Elliott lost a fumble in the first half that directly led to a Cleveland score and has now put the ball on the ground three times through four games, losing two of those fumbles. He also failed to score a TD for the first time this season, but he should have a chance to get back on track next Sunday against the Giants.
Elliott carried the ball 14 times for 34 yards and a touchdown and caught six of 12 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 38-31 loss to the Seahawks. While a first-quarter TD salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective, it was overall a poor performance from the Cowboys' lead back. He slipped in the end zone and gave up a safety just before his own score, and he dropped numerous catchable passes from Dak Prescott. Elliott will look to bounce back in Week 4 against a Browns defense that just gave up 5.4 yards a carry and a rushing touchdown to rookie Antonio Gibson.
