Ezekiel Elliott Fantasy Outlook
Zeke is easy to talk about. His skillset is very good. Hard nosed runner determined to go forward. That is what to love about Zeke. I think he goes one speed everytime he gets the ball. Full speed ahead!
There was some change in Big D. Jason Garrett is out and Mike McCarthy is in. Wait a minute though, there is no debate, as McCarthy has already said that Kellen Moore will be calling plays in 2020 just as Moore did for the Cowboys in 2019. Good news for Zeke.
Should Zeke worry about his stardom? Zeke has carried the ball more than 300 times in every season of his career minus the season he was suspended 6 games.
However, we all remember his little holdout last year. Could there still be some animosity there that Jerry Jones does not want Zeke to shine?
Is there any worry that the Cowboys spent their first round pick on talented WR CeeDee Lamb?
No! From a production standpoint, Zeke is still in the elite fantasy conversation. We are talking about a top 5 talent at his position.
However, I must say that I do not think he hits the 300 carry plateau. It would not surprise me if Kellen Moore gets a bit pass happy especially with the WR corp he has to work with.
I do also think Zeke has shown he is a capable WR so do not worry about him being completely neglected. If there is any dropoff in rush attempts it will be subtle.
Dallas Cowboys Offensive Line 2020
Projected Starting Line: LT: Tyron Smith, LG: Connor Williams, C: Joe Looney, RG: Zack Martin, RT: La’el Collins
Not too long ago, the Cowboys offensive line was widely considered the best in the business. Newsflash, they’re still very good. Zeke has averaged at least 4.5 yards per rush every season except his season that was cut short because of his suspension (That suspension seems to be a constant theme).
Although the Cowboys did not add anyone to the line via the draft or free agency expect this group to be very solid because they have a lot of experience together.
Connor Williams and Joe Looney are the least known of this unit. Williams has 21 starts and Looney 30 in his career. If there is a soft spot, it is in the middle with these two but it does not hinder Zeke’s performance.
Overall, this is a group that has a good mix of physicality and athleticism. At times you see the Cowboys try to get Zeke going off tackle or outside and this line is capable of getting up to the next level and making blocks. They also like to just run dive and iso plays where Zeke can go full speed in a straight line and these guys upfront don’t mind being physical and just blocking whoever is in front of them.
Ezekiel Elliott Strength of Schedule
Being ‘America’s Team’, it is no surprise the Cowboys only have 5 kickoffs at 1pm. That means that Zeke owners should have some fun watching him in Primetime and getting some points after all the 1 o’clock games.
The Cowboys have a pretty favorable schedule considering they only play three of the top 10 2019 defenses before the fantasy playoffs begin.
Ezekiel Elliott Fantasy Playoff Schedule
Week 14 bodes well at Cincinnati. Be careful however as Week 15 the Cowboys host the 49ers and Week 16 they host the Eagles. If your championship is Week 17, you are licking your chops when Zeke takes on the Giants.
Ezekiel Elliott Injury History
None. This is very uncommon especially for a player at his position. Zeke has only missed 6 games for a suspension he served in 2017 and in the 2018 regular season finale they rested him.
Ezekiel Elliott Skillset
Home Run Ability: B+. When Zeke is in the open field, he does not get caught often. He has good speed and has already shown he can score from long distances.
Playmaking Ability: B+. A solid all around player, Zeke provides good playmaking ability. He can get tough yards and puts his body on the line. Mainly he impresses by breaking a tackle that other backs cannot.
Is Ezekiel Elliott a Good Fantasy Pick?
Yes. Zeke is the epitome for consistency. You should certainly expect more of the same from this Cowboy.
