Summary

Ezekiel Elliott lived up to his billing as the best rookie running back to come into the league since Adrian Peterson a decade ago. The Ohio State Buckeye stepped into the Cowboys offense and immediately established himself as one of the NFL's best offensive players. While it's true Elliott runs behind an elite offensive line, that shouldn't take away from his well-rounded, top-tier abilities. Unlike most rookies, Elliott was instantly effective as a blocker, as a pass catcher, and generated yards after contact both as an inside and outside runner. In 15 games, Elliott led the NFL in carries (331) and rushing yards (1,631) while chipping in 16 touchdowns and 363 receiving yards. The Cowboys offense returns intact from a season ago, as does the system. Expecting Elliott to be anything less than a high-end fantasy RB1 would belie his talents as well as the situation he finds himself in. (May 21)

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott's investigation ongoing (Mon May 22, 05:27 PM) - Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott remains under investigation for an incident he was allegedly part of in July, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Our View: No charges were filed in this incident by authorities, so it's difficult to understand what the league is waiting on. Whenever they make a decision, we'd be surprised if any suspension came of this.
