News: 8 hours agoElliot (ribs) is expected to play Sunday against New England, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Spin: Elliot was limited in practice during the week after landing on a camera pylon on the sideline last week against the Giants. He was similarly limited in practice heading into that game but wound up rushing for 110 yards on a season-high 21 carries, so there's precedent for the Cowboys leaning on him heavily even when he's banged up.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Elliott's 2020 season was considered a letdown by those who drafted him, which is really something when you consider that he finished top-five at RB in carries and targets while posting his fifth-consecutive top-12 fantasy campaign. The issue, of course, was a split season that saw Elliott post the third-most fantasy points during Dak Prescott's five starts (top-13 every week) before plummeting to 24th (one weekly finish better than 12th) the rest of the way. Prescott and Dallas' elite offensive line are back and healthy for 2021, which positions Elliott, who paced the NFL with 22 carries inside the 5-yard line last season, for a big rebound. The 26-year-old could prove to be a steal late in the first round of drafts.
