Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Receives 40 touches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott carried the ball 28 times for 113 yards, adding another 79 yards on 12 receptions (13 targets).

Elliott was unable to extend his touchdown streak to five games, but he still produced a strong fantasy line, especially for those in PPR formats. The 22-year-old has been used as a pass-catcher more this year than in either of his previous two seasons. Zeke isn't as dynamic of a receiver as some of the other pass-catching backs that have 50-plus receptions (i.e. Alvin Kamara, Christian McCaffrey, Tarik Cohen), as most of his catches come on more traditional swing and screen passes out of the backfield. Still, Dak Prescott seems to be forcing him the ball, and that volume combined with his strong rushing totals make Elliott one of the most-consistent top-end backs in fantasy. Expect another heavy workload against the Colts on Sunday.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Productive all-around stat line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott rushed 23 times for 76 yards and brought in all six of his targets for 60 yards and another score in the Cowboys' 13-10 win over the Saints on Thursday.

Elliott was mostly held in check by a stingy Saints run defense, but he was able to move the chains as needed and also played a significant role in the air attack. The third-year back's reception total checked in second on the Cowboys to Amari Cooper, and he now has at least five catches in four consecutive contests. Elliott's 16-yard receiving touchdown in the first quarter served as his third of 2018, and he now has found the end zone in four straight games. The 23-year-old will look to continue his strong play against the Eagles in a Week 14 divisional battle on Dec. 9.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Not listed on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (hip) is not listed on Monday's practice participation/injury report.

Per Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News Elliott was rested Sunday due to some hip soreness, but the running back practiced without limitations Monday, which sets the stage for him continue to head the Dallas backfield Thursday night against the Saints.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Dealing with sore hip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott was held out of practice Sunday to rest a sore hip, but he's back on the field Monday with his teammates, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Elliott apparently got a bit banged up in Thursday's 31-23 win over Washington, though the hip issue didn't prevent him from piling up 143 yards and a score on 31 touches. He may be listed as a limited participant when the Cowboys release their initial practice report for Thursday's difficult matchup with the Saints. Dallas also has some injury concerns on the offensive line, which could be problematic against a New Orleans defense ranked first in rushing yards allowed (73.2 per game) and second in yards per carry (3.6).

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Scores for third straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott carried 26 times for 121 yards and a touchdown Thursday against the Redskins. He also caught five passes for an additional 22 yards in the 31-23 win.

Elliott set season highs in carries and touches, finishing with a respectable 4.7 yards per carry against a solid Washington front. He also made an impact as a pass catcher, ranking second on the team in receptions while tying for second in targets. Elliott has been outstanding over the last three games, topping 140 scrimmage yards while finding the end zone in each contest. He'll look to keep up his outstanding form next Thursday against the Saints and their solid run defense.
