Huddle Up: Elliott is expected to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, and he's coming off a rough game. It's a tough matchup, but he remains a high-end RB1 option.
Posted: 9/17/2017 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was bottled up by the sturdy Denver defense, with his longest run going for just five yards. He'll try to get on track in Week 3 in Arizona under the lights on Monday night.
Posted: 9/16/2017 7:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has as much upside as any back in the league, but fantasy owners can certainly appreciate the consistency, as well. Pencil him in for another week of RB1 production against the Broncos.
Posted: 9/13/2017 8:43am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke will face the Denver Broncos in Week 2, and they were a midrange defense against the position in Week 1. He remains an elite option at the position regardless of scoring system.
Posted: 9/11/2017 6:52am ET
Huddle Up: The Cowboys will face the Denver Broncos in Week 2, and Zeke is expected to be on the field. Elliott had 24 carries for 104 yards and five catches for 36 yards in Week 1 and is an RB1 option in Week 2.
Posted: 9/10/2017 10:03pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott's outlook brightened late last week when a judge granted a temporary restraining order to keep allowing him to play with a six-game suspension from the NFL looming. The fight is expected to continue, but for now it appears he'll continue to play and be an obvious must-start fantasy option.
Posted: 9/8/2017 3:27pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott is now eligible to continue playing, and it's possible that he might be able to play for the remainder of the season before a lengthy court battle ensues in the offseason, or even into 2018. It's a situation similar to that of Tom Brady and 'Deflategate', so do not expect this to be the last you hear of it. This is outstanding news for fantasy owners who rolled the dice on Elliott.
Posted: 9/5/2017 5:41pm ET
Huddle Up: Before Elliott's owners go into a panic and Darren McFadden's owners jump for joy, we must first find out whether the courts will accept the temporary restraining order motion from Elliott's legal team to delay the suspension. Henderson's finding pretty much means Elliott will now likely serve either zero (if the courts intervene) or six (if they don't) games and removes the possibility of him getting away with a two- or three-game absence. At least for now, owners probably need to view him as a mid-third round pick at best.
Posted: 9/5/2017 10:30am ET
Huddle Up: It is really anyone's guess at this point how this thing will turn out. A reduction of the suspension seems the most likely outcome, but both sides also seem more than willing to take this to court if they don't get the decision they want. Stay tuned.
Posted: 8/31/2017 11:32pm ET
Huddle Up: Oh boy. It's officially go time. The NFLPA and Elliott launched a preemptive strike against the NFL's arbitration ruling, and it's starting to look like we could have a rehash of the Tom Brady case -- as a refresher, Brady was originally suspended the first four games of the 2015 season before a judge vacated the punishment and Brady played the entire season and eventually served the suspension in 2016. No doubt the NFL will react swiftly, but it's anyone's guess how long the process will drag out and what it'll mean short and long term for Elliott's status. With the waters muddier than ever, Elliott is an early-round lottery ticket that carries high risk and high rewards.
Posted: 8/31/2017 10:50am ET
Huddle Up: There have been recent swirlings that Elliott's suspension could be reduced. If it is reduced, even by a game, Elliott can be ticked up on draft boards. As it stands, he's a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2, although you may need to reach in order to secure his services.
Posted: 8/31/2017 6:54am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott's draft stock plummeted upon the announcement, but the suspension could be delayed and/or reduced. If you're drafting in the top few picks of your draft, he may be an option when your turn comes back around in the second round.
Posted: 8/29/2017 8:01pm ET
Huddle Up: And with that, thousands of current and future fantasy owners of Elliott - not to mention the Cowboys - are left hanging in the wind for at least another 24 hours. Considering both sides appear ready to dig their heels in, owners need to be prepared for the possibility that Elliott may need serve a suspension sometime after the first six weeks of the season or perhaps not at all.
Posted: 8/29/2017 2:56pm ET
Huddle Up: It's becoming more and more likely that Elliott will be available to play in Week 1 if the appeal process is not wrapped up soon. Elliott does face a long suspension, though, and merits low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 valuation.
Posted: 8/24/2017 8:42am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott is suspended for the first six games of the season, and his appeal is to be heard Tuesday. There are instances where you can take him as an RB2, but he's essentially out for the first half of the fantasy season. Darren McFadden is a great RB3 if the suspension is upheld.
Posted: 8/20/2017 11:34am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has yet to play this preseason and almost certainly will play in the exhibition finale, meaning he could go until late October before he sees a snap in a live game if his six-game suspension is upheld, so it might be a good idea to have him get hit once or twice. Darren McFadden figures to get the bulk of the work in the backfield for however long Elliott is sidelined.
Posted: 8/15/2017 2:19pm ET
Huddle Up: This appeal process could take some time, but for now Elliott will miss the Cowboys' first six games of the 2017 season. Darren McFadden makes for a suitable fantasy flex at the least if the suspension holds.
Posted: 8/11/2017 12:44pm ET
Huddle Up: As it stands currently, Elliott is expected to be suspended until Week 8 - an Oct. 29 game against the Washington Redskins. Speculating about how much his suspension could be reduced at this point would be foolish, but there is definitely a chance of it happening. Risk-taking owners can use this opportunity to get Elliott on the cheap, as even a two-game reduction would make it more palatable for him to go on the second round of fantasy drafts. Expect plenty more updates in the coming days and weeks.
Posted: 8/11/2017 9:13am ET
Huddle Up: With the Cowboys' bye landing on Week 6, Elliott will not unable to play until Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, pending the appeal. For fantasy football purposes, Elliott should now drop out of the first round of draft and perhaps into the third round or later, while backup Darren McFadden could be considered a low-end RB1 for however long Elliott must sit out should his suspension be reduced.
Posted: 8/11/2017 6:29am ET
Huddle Up: A decision could come Friday, Aug. 11, or it could trickle into next week. There is also an appeals process, which as we learned with Tom Brady the last two years, could prolong the process. A four-to-six-game ban would heavily diminish Elliott's fantasy stock and promote Darren McFadden to potentially an RB3. Zeke would be an RB2 commodity, and you'd need to secure a safe RB3 to use in his place in the meantime.
Posted: 8/10/2017 2:13pm ET
Huddle Up: If he is suspended, it probably won't be for very long. Those who draft, or have already drafted, Elliott may want to consider selecting Darren McFadden if a suspension is given. Elliott remains a top-tier RB1 no matter the decision.
Posted: 8/1/2017 7:07pm ET
Huddle Up: With the specter of Elliott getting suspended hanging over his head, owners could hit it big if they are willing to roll the dice on him. Obviously, if he can improve on his 32-catch rookie season, it increases his chances that much more of hanging with David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell in the elite tier of running backs. Taking him is not for the faint of heart, but the payoff of taking him at No. 6 overall or later could be huge.
Posted: 7/31/2017 1:56pm ET
Huddle Up: It's hard to imagine Elliott coming away from this scot-free. It seems likely that he will be given a short suspension. If that is the case, Darren McFadden would suddenly have meaningful value to start the season, especially in daily fantasy games.
Posted: 7/30/2017 5:15am ET
Huddle Up: Even if Elliott receives a brief suspension from the league, the 22-year-old should still be viewed as an elite RB1 in all fantasy formats.
Posted: 7/21/2017 12:00pm ET
Huddle Up: Dallas reports to training camp on Saturday, meaning the team will kick off practices uncertain whether or not it will have the services of the league's reigning rushing champ in early September. A resolution is expected in the coming days, as multiple sources said Friday the NFL is nearing the end of its investigation into Elliott's off-field behavior. A short suspension is still expected, so stay tuned. For now, he remains an elite fantasy RB1 who could be had late in the first round.
Posted: 7/19/2017 3:18pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has had several off-field incidents over the last few years and could receive a suspension from the NFL but has been cleared in this incident. Elliott will be a main focal point in the Cowboys offense in 2017 and should still be a No. 1 fantasy running back even if misses a game or two.
Posted: 7/17/2017 6:51am ET
Huddle Up: It doesn't sound like much, but it comes at the worst possible time for Elliott, who was reportedly bracing for a short suspension stemming from a domestic situation in 2016. Reports are that he was expecting to be suspended a game or two, and another incident, no matter how minor, doesn't look good for any sort of league reprieve. Elliott is a stud RB1, but he's likely to start falling marginally in traditional drafts. Know the possibilities when taking him so early.
Posted: 7/14/2017 12:09pm ET
Huddle Up: The mere fact the NFL has dragged its investigation into Elliott this long suggests he is more likely than not to miss some time, although everything is speculative at this point. Early drafters may want to slide him down their cheatsheets a few spots, but a one- or two-game suspension puts him essentially in the same boat as Le'Veon Bell last year, and Bell handsomely rewarded owners who spent a late first-round pick on him. Elliott could easily do the same for his owners and is still very much worth a top-10 pick.
Posted: 7/4/2017 3:17pm ET
Huddle Up: Those numbers are certainly within Elliott's reach after last season. He'll need 1,369 yards and 10 touchdowns to join that elite group. While he faces potential punishment for an off-field incident, Elliott deserves to be one of the first three to five players drafted.
Posted: 7/3/2017 9:24am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott has massive fantasy appeal and upside, but his price tag in fantasy will reflect it just as much. So while it's very possible nothing happens here, you're probably going to have to spend a top-five pick or a copious amount of your auction budget to land him. It's just something to consider when applying the resources to land the stud RB1.
Posted: 6/1/2017 1:18pm ET
Huddle Up: The ramifications of Elliott's case have yet to be determined, but the hope is that either way it will be finalized before the start of the regular season. After taking the league by storm last year, Elliott is already one of the league's best running backs and deserves consideration as one of the first five picks in fantasy drafts.
Posted: 5/24/2017 12:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott could be limited during practice for the next week or two but should be fine for the June minicamp. He was one of the top running backs in the NFL as a rookie and should see a similar workload in 2017. Elliott should be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.
Posted: 5/24/2017 9:45am ET
Huddle Up: ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Elliott did not suffer any significant injuries, so this appears to be a precautionary move on the Cowboys' part. Nevertheless, Elliott cannot seem to stay out of the news, as he is still under investigation by the league for allegedly assaulting an ex-girlfriend last summer. Barring another injury or an unexpected turn in the assault case, he should be considered an elite fantasy RB1, but future off-field troubles could easily result in him dropping out of the first five picks in drafts.
Posted: 5/22/2017 2:27pm ET
Huddle Up: How soon the investigation remains to be seen. Barring any punishment from the NFL or the Cowboys, Elliott remains a top-three fantasy running back and should be selected early in the first round.
Posted: 5/8/2017 8:45pm ET
Huddle Up: It's interesting that Elliott believes he has to be better at the second level of his runs, considering he led the league in his rookie campaign in rushes of at least 20 or more yards, registering 14 such instances. He also had the second-most runs of 40 or more yards, accomplishing this feat three times. Elliott had a monster first season in the NFL and based on his attitude, he may top that for an encore in his sophomore year.
Posted: 3/18/2017 7:58pm ET
Huddle Up: The league's investigation hasn't officially been closed, so a punishment of some sort could still be handed down. That being said, he should still be one of the first players off the board in all formats in 2017.
Posted: 3/2/2017 1:33pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott will be a first-round fantasy draft pick for many years to come as long as he stays healthy. His elite talent combined with the Cowboys' elite offensive line makes sweet music together. As was said earlier, Elliott should be one of the first three to five players taken off draft boards in 2017.
Posted: 3/2/2017 12:01pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was the best running back in football last year, at least from a yardage standpoint. There's no reason why he shouldn't see the same kind of workload he did in his rookie year. After nearly 2,000 total yards and 16 total touchdowns, Elliott deserves to be one of the first three to five players taken in 2017 fantasy drafts.
Posted: 2/4/2017 1:12pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott had an outstanding rookie season and led the NFL in rushing yards with 1,631. He was also in the top five in carries and touchdowns. He will continue to be a main focus on offense for the Cowboys and should be a first-round pick in all leagues.
Posted: 1/15/2017 5:34pm ET
Huddle Up: Dallas came out on the losing end, but Elliott delivered another strong performance. He should be a top-five pick in all formats next season.
Posted: 1/11/2017 8:44am ET
Huddle Up: It's a good sign he was able to practice, but there is still a possibility of whiplash or something else popping up in the next day or two. Monitor him the next couple of days, but he's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Posted: 1/11/2017 6:43am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke should be fine, but keep an eye on him the next couple of days to be sure. He's an elite RB1 against the Green Bay Packers this weekend.
Posted: 1/5/2017 11:00am ET
Huddle Up: Elliott led the NFL in rushing during the regular season with 1,631 yards and 322 carries but appears to be ready for even more work in the playoffs. He will be a must-start option in all fantasy playoff leagues as long as the Cowboys are playing.
Posted: 1/1/2017 2:22pm ET
Huddle Up: It wouldn't have been likely for Elliott to break that record had he played, but Elliott still had a fantastic rookie season. He is a solid RB1 with a decent chance at NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.
Posted: 12/26/2016 9:44pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott was rested for a good chunk of the second half, as the Cowboys had a healthy lead. It also allowed them to have Darren McFadden knock off some rust after a long layoff. Zeke is well short of the single-season rushing record by a rookie, and it's unlikely he'll come close to the 177 yards he needs to pass Eric Dickerson (1,808 yards, 1983).
Posted: 12/26/2016 7:54am ET
Huddle Up: This will be subject to change because the Cowboys have nothing to play for as far as seeding goes. The Detroit Lions could still be playing for the division crown next week. Elliott has had a big workload this year, and there's no reason for him to see his normal work. Monitor this outlook through the week, but he's probably not going to be an RB1 you can bank on.
Posted: 12/19/2016 5:26am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke is the real deal and a legit RB1 behind that offensive line.
Posted: 12/1/2016 9:10pm ET
Huddle Up: Elliott had a couple of other big runs called back, but he still topped 100 total yards for the ninth time in the last 10 games. Keep building around him in standard formats and DFS games.
Posted: 11/29/2016 7:01am ET
Huddle Up: Zeke is on pace for 353 carries in what has probably been a bigger rookie season than even his most favorable prognosticators expected. At 1,199 yards and 11 TDs, he's an elite option at the position against the Minnesota Vikings Thursday night.
Posted: 11/24/2016 5:44pm ET
Huddle Up: There was talk of Elliott hitting a rookie wall after a mediocre showing against Baltimore last week, but he continues to top 100 total yards on a weekly basis and has multiple scores in three of his last four games. Leave him in your lineup enjoy the ride.
