Fantasy Analysis
Week 6 Projections
This Dallas season has been very taxing on our emotions. The Cowboys have lost the majority of their elite talent on the offensive line due to injury and now have to endure the biggest injury resounding effect of any team in the NFL. That means that Elliott is now, once again, the unquestioned focal point of the offense. We fully expect his rush totals to consistently break 20 a week and for him to become more involved as a receiver in the screen game.
Rushing: 87 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 5 Receptions, 35 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: 905 Yards, 10 TD.
Receiving: 49 Receptions, 363 Yards, 2 TD.
