News: 3 hours agoElliott (thigh) remained a limited participant at practice Thursday.
Spin: Elliott also had his reps capped Wednesday and may need to practice fully Friday in order to avoid carrying an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Chargers. Assuming Elliott is available for the contest, his fantasy upside will be capped by the fact that he continues to work behind top backfield option Rhamondre Stevenson.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Elliott signed with the Patriots in August after pacing the NFL in touches (2,186) and yardage (10,598) during seven seasons with the Cowboys. Elliott has never finished a season with fewer than eight TDs, but his production and efficiency have plummeted in recent years. He hasn't finished top 15 in fantasy PPG since 2019, and that includes a career-worst 23rd-place showing in 2022. Elliott also posted career-low marks in rushing yards (876), YPC (3.79), YAC (1.66), targets (23), receptions (17), receiving yards (92) and yards per target (4.0) in 2022. The 28-year-old's best days are behind him and he's now likely to settle in as a complement to Rhamondre Stevenson. Elliott has some insurance appeal, but is unlikely to have weekly standalone value. Only consider him late in drafts.
