News: 3 days agoElliott carried the ball 21 times for 103 yards and caught both his targets for 11 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 31-28 win over the Vikings.
Spin: While he lost the statistical battle with Dalvin Cook, Elliott and the Cowboys won the war, and the Dallas back produced his first 100-yard rushing performance of the season. With Andy Dalton back at the helm, the team's offense as a whole looked a little more like the unit that was so potent early in the year under Dak Prescott, and Elliott will take some much-needed momentum into a Thanksgiving clash with Washington.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Elliott returns as the clear feature back in Dallas. Since entering the league in 2016, the Ohio State product leads the NFL in carries (1,169) and rushing yards (5,405), and sits second in rushing touchdowns (40). Elliott obviously plays a substantial role as a ball carrier -- and his goal-line work increased last season -- but it was a bit surprising to see his targets fall from 6.3 to 4.4 per game last season. Of course, Elliott's role still allowed him a top-3 finish in touches, yards and fantasy points. The 25-year-old is positioned for a similar role in 2020 behind a strong offensive line and should be off the board in the middle of the first round of drafts.
