Summary

Ezekiel Elliott is one of the league's best running backs. Don't let the 2017 soap opera lead you to an alternative conclusion. After leading the league with 322 carries for 1,631 rushing yards as a rookie, Elliott was the talk of the NFL and part of the Cowboys' resurgence (along with fellow rookie Dak Prescott). Unfortunately, Elliott was accused of domestic violence, and the Commissioner's office opted to suspend Elliott despite no formal criminal charges. The back-and-forth legal machinations not only kept Elliott off the field for six games but disrupted the offensive identity of the Cowboys. Elliott ended the season with just 983 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns. Fortunately, the distractions are behind him, and Elliott should resume his place among the best at the position. The Cowboys still have one of the league's best run-blocking offensive lines, and Elliott has a rare combination of size, speed, toughness, and vision. There's no reason Elliott should be anything less than one of the top four picks in all league formats. (May 20)

Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott brings consistency (Sat Jul 7, 12:12 AM) - Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for at least 80 yards in 23 of the 25 games he has played.

Our View: Grabbing Elliott last season meant you had a beast during a lot of the fantasy season, only to lose that beast as you hit the playoffs. With no suspension looming and the Cowboys adjusting to a world without Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, Elliott is going to be a focus of the offense and a hot commodity - and one of the top running backs again - in the fantasy community.
