IRVING, Texas (AP) -- Ezekiel Elliott has signed a four-year contract with the Dallas Cowboys that includes a $16 million signing bonus and is worth nearly $25 million overall for the Ohio State running back who was the fourth overall draft pick.(AP Sports)
FF Today's Take:Elliott enters a backfield featuring Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden atop the depth chart so he may not see the field right away in 2016. Nevertheless, he arguably has more upside than anyone else the Cowboys have at the position and may only need a great preseason or an injury to put him in the mix for carries this year. Elliott's pedigree, draft position and firm grip on the "running back of the future" label in Dallas make him more attractive in dynasty formats where he could be among the top 15 at the position as soon as 2017.
Cowboys sign Alfred Morris-- Tue Mar 22 10:30 am --
Former Washington Redskins running back Alfred Morris will sign a two-year deal with the Dallas Cowboys, his agent confirmed to ESPN.
The deal is for two years, worth up to $5.5 million, including $2 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.
FF Today's Take:Morris rocketed into the league with a monstrous rookie season in 2012 (1613 yds, 13 TDs) but his production has slipped every year since. His 763 yards and 1 TD last season ranked him 45th among fantasy running backs as he struggled to fit into Jay Gruden's offense. The Cowboys should provide an upgrade to Morris' fantasy stock and he'll compete with Darren McFadden for snaps.
