While Elliott's six-game suspension cast a pall over not just his own season but the Cowboys' entire 2017 campaign, he managed to finish in the top 10 for carries, red-zone touches and TDs despite only playing 10 games. He lost a full yard off his rookie-year YPC and only managed seven runs of 15 yards or more, but his workload was unrivaled by anyone besides Le'Veon Bell, with Elliott taking 26.8 touches per game and rushing for 80 or more yards in all but one game. He's one of the few true bellcow backs in the modern NFL, coming off a season in which he was on the field for 85.5 percent of the Cowboys' offensive snaps in the games he played. While not a high-volume pass catcher along the lines of Bell or David Johnson, the third-year back has shown more than enough as a receiver and blocker to continue handling the majority of third downs. He runs with good power and doesn't lack for speed, but his biggest weapons are vision and patience, assets accentuated by the fearsome offensive line in front of him - a line that got reinforced in the draft with second-rounder Connor Williams. Assuming he doesn't run afoul of the commissioner's office again, Elliott heads into 2018 poised to challenge for another rushing title and seemingly a lock for double-digit TDs.

  2. Ezekiel Elliott 2017 Preseason Outlook
    Elliott hit the jackpot in the 2016 draft, landing with a Cowboys squad that was perfectly set up for an every-down back to come in and put up huge numbers behind their dominant offensive line. The 6-0, 225-pound dynamo out of Ohio State more than held up his end of that bargain, teasing a run at Eric Dickerson's 1983 record for rushing yards by a rookie before eventually settling for his first of what could be many rushing crowns. Elliott combined elite vision and plus elusiveness with the burst to break into the second level and the speed to run away from defenders once he got there. Perhaps the most valuable weapon in his arsenal is his uncanny patience, as he demonstrated the ability to wait for plays to develop and his blocks to get set up before attacking the hole. Depressingly for opposition defenses, Elliott may just be scratching the surface of his potential. He wasn't as involved in the passing game as he could have been, something that should change as Dak Prescott develops right alongside him, as Elliott was charged with only one drop last year. The Dallas O-line may take a small step back this season after losing two starters in the offseason, but the real concern surfaced in mid-August when Elliott was handed a six-game suspension. He was granted an injunction and temporary restraining order that allow him to keep playing for the Cowboys while his lawsuit plays out in court, but there is a small chance he could miss time later in the season if the case is wraps up quicker than expected.
  3. Ezekiel Elliott 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Elliott ran through, around and over collegiate defenses the last two years, collecting 41 touchdowns and 4,125 yards from scrimmage. As dominant as Elliott was in the Big 10, he was even better during three career Bowl games: 83 carries, 625 yards, 10 touchdowns, 7.5 a carry. Not too shabby for someone who finished eighth in the Heisman voting as a junior; maybe they should run that election after the season is over. He showed the ability to play on all downs and in all packages, making him an unusually polished running back entering his freshman season in the NFL The Pokes snagged him with the fourth overall pick in May. You can have a long discussion about who should go No. 2 in a rookies-only draft, but Elliott is going to be the obvious No. 1 dynasty league pick everywhere — mostly because of his talent, but it also speaks to an unexciting crop of rookies. With that in mind, the isolation of Elliott is only going to make him more expensive in most pools. Ah, but there's plenty to like. The Cowboys still have the consensus No. 1 offensive line (it graded first in both run and pass blocking last year, per Pro Football Focus), and Dallas has a paper-thin schedule.The window to win is narrow in Dallas, given the age of the key core — and with that, it's unlikely the Cowboys will make Elliott wait to prove much.

Looking slimmer at camp
RBDallas Cowboys
August 1, 2018
Elliott looks quicker and leaner at training camp this year, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. "You go at this time last year, he's very stressed out," Cowboys running backs coach Gary Brown said. "Wasn't himself. Looked big. Now he looks happy and jubilant and lean and just going out there and having some fun. So it's a completely different Zeke than it was last year."
