    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Struggles in loss to Washington

    Ezekiel 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.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Night marred by fumbles

    Ezekiel Elliott rushed 12 times for 49 yards and brought in eight of 11 targets for 31 yards in the Dallas 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.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Scores twice in win

    Ezekiel 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.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Piles up 125 scrimmage yards

    Ezekiel 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.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Struggles in Seattle

    Ezekiel 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 Dallas 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.

    Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Eclipses 100 yards, scores TD

    Ezekiel Elliott ran for 89 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries while securing six of seven targets for 33 yards during Sunday's 40-39 win against the Falcons. He also committed two first-quarter fumbles, losing one to Atlanta.Elliott has been an elite rusher since the day he entered the NFL, as exhibited by the 1,631 rushing yards and 16 total touchdowns he collected during his All-Pro rookie season of 2016. The back's receiving skills had been a work in progress when he entered the league, but Elliott has now averaged 4.2 catches per game dating back to the start of 2018 (compared to 2.3 receptions per game between 2016 and 2017). Fresh off a comeback win, Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys' rushing attack now prepare for a Week 3 matchup against a Seahawks defense that contained Atlanta to 72 team rushing yards in its season debut.

    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.
