Fantasy Analysis
Week 8 Projections
Elliott could very well be the entire Cowboys' offense this week. With a third string quarterback likely to take over against the Eagles, Dallas would be wise to strictly go ground-and-pound. Dallas needs to get Elliott jump started as we still await his first 100 yard rushing game of the season. Until then, the Cowboys would be doing their young QB a favor by setting up Elliott on more screens and quick throws for 1st downs.
Rushing: 73 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 29 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
His reduction in the passing game in 2019 wasn't a surprise, but it was encouraging to see that it remained elevated well over 2016 and 2017 levels. With all the toys in the Cowboys' attack, volume has developed into the greatest unknown with what to expect from Zeke. For the first time in his career he averaged less than 20 carries per game, Dallas replaced Randall Cobb with CeeDee Lamb, and both Blake Jarwin and Tony Pollard are expected to take on larger roles. That said, what he lacks in theoretical upside he makes up for in reliability. He's not missed more than one game for health reasons in any of his four seasons and his per game rates in each season has been somewhere between 3rd and 6th among running backs. It doesn't get much more reliable than that!

Rushing: 645 Yards, 6 TD.
Receiving: 36 Receptions, 241 Yards, 1 TD.
