Elliott tested positive for coronavirus in June. He is reportedly asymptomatic and expected to be ready for training camp without any lasting effects.

Summary

Elliott was the story of the league last offseason, as a protracted contract dispute led to a potential in-season hold out. But cooler heads prevailed and Elliott reported and played all sixteen games. Although he failed to lead the league in rushing yards per game for the first time in his career, that's a nitpick as he delivered another dominant season. Elliott ran for 1,357 yards on 301 carries, and scored 12 touchdowns. Importantly, Elliott remained involved in the receiving game under new play-caller Kellen Moore. He caught 54 receptions for 420 yards, and scored twice. While there's an argument to be made over his status as the best running back in the NFL, there's no arguing he is on a short list of legitimate contenders for the moniker. As one of the few running backs guaranteed 300+ touches over 16 games, Elliott will be one of the first players off the board in every draft. (May 5)
