2018 Outlook
Depth Chart
A sophomore slump and six-game suspension could not keep Ezekiel Elliott from finishing the season as the second-ranked running back in fantasy points per game. The former Ohio State University star posted 1252 total yards and nine touchdowns in just ten games of action, highlighted by a three-touchdown performance Week 7 against the 49ers.

With no pending suspension in sight (that we know of) and the Cowboys releasing Dez Bryant and presumably refocusing on the running game, Elliott is a lock for well over 300 total touches and double-digit touchdowns, making him one of the safest picks of the first round.

The narrative of defenses stacking the box against the run now that Bryant is no longer on the team is a favorite argument against Elliott in the fantasy community. But the reality is defenses did not fear Dez on the outside last season, and Elliott was a dominant force yet again for fantasy owners. Barring injury or suspension, Elliott's elite volume, commitment to the run by the Cowboys, and the vaunted Dallas offensive line will all but ensure another top 5 finish for Zeke.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Todd Gurley feeling no pain
Rams RB practices on Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jan 9, 5:45 pm

Rams RB Todd Gurley is participating in practice today for the first time since Week 15. Sean McVay said Gurley told him he felt no pain in his knee when he arrived today. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Gurley hasn't played or practiced since Week 15 but it would be a shock if he's not on the field Saturday against the Cowboys. He'll be the top fantasy running back on the board this week in a similar tier with Ezekiel Elliott and Alvin Kamara.


Cowboys will rest Ezekiel Elliott
Darius Jackson and Rod Smith to split reps
By: Mike Krueger | Sun Dec 30, 8:30 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys team sources tells me they will rest RB Ezekiel Elliott today. Expect backups Darius Jackson and Rod Smith to split reps instead against the Giants. RG Zack Martin also not expected to play ahead of playoffs (https://twitter.com/SlaterNFL/st)

FFToday's Take: Despite Jerry Jones indicated earlier in the week that healthy players would play in a meaningless finale, it appears the Cowboys will indeed rest their star running back. It won't be a surprise if many of the other Dallas starters play limited snaps as well. Smith and Jackson will be difficult to trust in DFS given their unknown workload.
