    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Finds end zone twice in loss

    Ezekiel Elliott rushed 22 times for 96 yards and a touchdown, adding three receptions (four targets) for 31 yards and another score in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Rams.This was about as stereotypical of an Ezekiel Elliott performance as it gets; he gained consistent chunks of yardage (4.4 YPC) and finished right around the century mark, found the end zone twice and caught three passes after averaging 3.4 receptions per game in 2019. The 25-year-old didn't show any signs of rust against the Rams' front seven following a shortened training camp and no preseason. Backup Tony Pollard was able to poach only four touches away, making it obvious that Zeke is still one of the few every-down backs left in the league. Elliott should be considered a safe top option heading into Sunday's matchup against the Falcons.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Working on receiving skills

    Ezekiel Elliott focused on pass catching this offseason, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.Elliott says he didn't spend much time on backfield work, instead focusing on his technique lining up out wide or in the slot. Perhaps he's feeling some pressure from backfield mate Tony Pollard, who had 1,292 receiving yards in three seasons at Memphis and could eventually be an option to replace Elliott on passing downs. It sounds like Zeke is doing everything in his power to retain a three-down role, following three consecutive seasons with snap share in the 84-89 percent range. It is possible Pollard takes a larger chunk of the snaps in his second pro season, but it'll still be Elliott dominating the rushing workload at the very least. In other news, the 25-year-old seems to have made a complete recovery from his summer bout with COVID-19.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Feeling much improved

    Ezekiel Elliott (illness) said he's feeling better after testing positive for COVID-19, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. "I would say I had maybe one or two days when I felt symptoms," Elliott relayed in a Zoom call Wednesday. "Even then, it wasn't too bad. I had a cough and a little bit of shortness of breath. Now, I feel good. I feel normal."Elliott's comments represent his first public statement since word leaked June 15 of his positive test. Until Wednesday, though, it was unclear whether or not he was symptomatic, which he confirmed was the case. Elliott has another week to go of self-isolation and "still can't work out," per John Breech of CBS Sports. However, with training camp likely a month away, Elliott has plenty of time to get his bearings once he's healthy enough to do so.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Could benefit from spread formation

    Ezekiel Elliott could be one of the bigger beneficiaries of CeeDee Lamb's addition to the offense, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.With Randall Cobb on the roster last season, the Dallas Cowboys ran plays out of '11' personnel (one running back, one tight end, three wide receivers) roughly two-thirds of the time, forcing defenses to put an extra defensive back on the field instead of a linebacker. Elliott averaged 5.1 yards per carry out of that formation, the fifth-highest mark in the league, and his 823 total rushing yards from 11 personnel also led the NFL. With first-round pick Lamb now stepping in for Cobb, and the more conservative Jason Garrett gone as head coach, the team will likely increase its use of 11 personnel further, allowing Elliott to face even fewer stacked fronts.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Finds end zone twice in Week 17

    Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 18 times for 122 yards and a touchdown and caught three of five targets for two yards and a second score in Sunday's 47-16 win over Washington.With the Dallas Cowboys' playoff hopes on the line, Elliott came through with another big performance, but it went for naught when the Eagles took care of business against the Giants. The fourth-year running back wraps up 2019 with 1,357 rushing yards and 12 TDs on the ground, as well as 54 catches on 71 targets for another 420 yards and two touchdowns. Dallas is likely to have a new head coach, and potentially a new offensive scheme, next season, but given the investments Jerry Jones has made both in Elliott and his offensive line, the RB will likely remain a major part of the Cowboys' attack.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Modest numbers in Philly

    Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 13 times for 47 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 17-9 loss to the Eagles.With Dak Prescott unable to generate much offense through the air, the Philadelphia defense was able to concentrate on stuffing Elliott, and he was held below 50 rushing yards for the first time since Week 11. The fourth-year back will look to finish the season on a high note in next week's must-win game against a Washington defense that just got steamrolled by Saquon Barkley.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Huge game against Rams

    Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 24 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns and caught three of four targets for 43 yards in Sunday's 44-21 win over the Rams.That's now back-to-back two-TD performances for Elliott, while the 160 scrimmage yards were a season high as he came through in a big way for those with fantasy shares in him. The fourth-year RB will look to keep rolling next Sunday in Philadelphia with a chance to lock up the NFC East title against an Eagles defense he gashed for 111 rushing yards and a score in Week 7.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Scores two TDs in loss

    Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns and secured two of five targets for 12 yards in the Dallas Cowboys' 31-24 loss to the Bears on Thursday.Elliott's play was a bright spot in the Cowboys' third straight defeat, although game script eventually served to cap his volume overall. The Pro Bowler has now logged a sub-20-carry workload in three of his past four games, and he hasn't eclipsed the 100-yard mark since Week 9 versus the Giants. Elliott does continue seeing multiple targets in the passing game on a regular basis, and he'll look to be get back to more robust volume in the ground attack in another tough matchup against the Rams in Week 15, a week from Sunday.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Piles up yardage in loss

    Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 12 times for 71 yards and caught seven of 10 targets for 66 yards in Thursday's 26-15 loss to the Bills.The running back has topped 100 scrimmage yards in two straight games and seven times this season, but his inability to find the end zone proved costly for the Dallas Cowboys. Elliott will look to keep rolling next week on the road against a Bears defense that just gave up 83 rushing yards to his former backup, Bo Scarbrough.
