Elliott carried 23 times for 122 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Falcons. He also made seven catches for 79 yards in the 22-19 win.
Elliott gashed Atlanta repeatedly as he finished averaging 5.3 yards per carry and scored on a 23-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He also led the team in targets, catches and receiving yardage as he went over 200 scrimmage yards for the second time this season. Elliott has been handed a huge workload in the last two weeks and has enjoyed tremendous success, helping the team back to .500 with a pair of improbable road wins. Expect the star tailback to play a central role in Thursday's matchup with the Redskins.
Elliott ran the ball 19 times for 151 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-20 win over the Eagles. He added 36 yards and another score on six receptions.
Elliott tied his season-high of 7.9 yards per carry, which is even more impressive considering he was bottled up for just four yards on his first three carries Sunday. The star back had been slumping to the tune of 94 total rushing yards over his last two games, so his fantasy owners certainly welcomed this offensive explosion. This was also the first multi-touchdown performance of the year for Elliott, a feat he accomplished three times by this point in 2017. While his production is down compared to previous dominant years, the 23-year-old remains a RB1 heading into Week 11's matchup with the Falcons.
Elliot rushed 17 times for 61 yards and caught four of five targets for 51 yards in Monday night's 28-14 defeat to the Titans.
Elliot once again couldn't get much going on the ground behind an offensive line that also allowed its quarterback to be sacked five times. In fact, Elliot has now averaged under 4.0 yards per carry in three of the Cowboys' last four games. Fortunately, he was able to post his second-best receiving mark of the season, thanks in part to a 37-yard gain in the first quarter. While his 112 total yards still made it a decent showing by his standards, Elliott's lack of blocking has been concerning of late, especially as a matchup against Philadelphia's second-ranked rush defense awaits Week 10.
Elliott rushed 15 times for 33 yards and added nine yards on two receptions in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Redskins.
Except for the catch total, all of those numbers represent season lows for the stud running back. The Redskins clearly made it part of their game plan to contain Elliott, and they were successful. Nevertheless, the Ohio State product remains one of the game's elite backs. He'll have a bye week to rest up before another stiff test at home against Tennessee in Week 9.
Elliott carried 24 times for 106 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 40-7 win over the Jaguars. He also caught his only target for an additional 11 yards.
Elliott went over 100 rushing yards for the third time this season and broke off a long gain of 20 yards. He was rewarded for his efforts with a 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys continued to pour it on after building a sizable lead. While Elliott wasn't quite as involved as a pass catcher in this one, that can merely be attributed to the fact that his team led from the beginning and was content to run the ball. He hadn't reached the end zone on the ground since Week 2, but his score in this one made him the fastest player in franchise history to record 25 career rushing touchdowns. Elliott will look to build on another strong effort next Sunday against the Redskins.
