Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said the team will use a running back by committee approach this season, unlike the feature back approach used during RB Ezekiel Elliott's first tour of duty with the team. McCarthy said that he has not seen any drop off in the way Elliott moves but thinks it wouldn't be fair to give him a workload similar to what he saw in the early seasons of his career.
Huddle Up: Elliott had the least productive season of his career with New England in 2023, with career lows in carries (184), rushing yards (642), touchdowns (three) and yards per carry (3.5). Although he is expected to have a larger role in the Dallas offense in 2024, his days as an RB1 fantasy option are likely over. Elliott is most likely to see the field in short-yardage and goal line situations, making him worthy of consideration as an RB3 in many fantasy leagues. RBs Rico Dowdle and Deuce Vaughn are behind Elliott on the Cowboys' depth chart but their fantasy value remains uncertain, as it remains to be seen how many offensive snaps they will see in a typical game.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Patriots) appears increasingly likely to return to the Dallas Cowboys to complement and help mentor the rookie running back the team is expected to select at some during the 2024 NFL Draft on Friday, April 26.
Huddle Up: Based on recent comments from team owner Jerry Jones, the Cowboys want that rookie to be University of Texas RB Jonathon Brooks. Regardless of the player that Dallas selects to replace Tony Pollard, Elliott figures to handle goal-line duties and perhaps the bulk of work on third down thanks to his ability to hold up in pass pro. While the days of Elliott being a fantasy RB1 are likely over, the aforementioned role may be enough to keep him in the flex conversation.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott's (Patriots) representative is meeting with the Dallas Cowboys Wednesday, April 24, according to a source.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys do not have a clear starter at running back, so Elliott probably would have a big role if he decided to return to the Cowboys. Fantasy players can monitor the situation because Elliott could be at least a flex option if he starts in 2024.

Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Patriots) and the Dallas Cowboys have mutual interest in getting a deal done, according to sources Saturday, March 30.
Huddle Up: A deal hasn't been reached yet, but there seems to be interest. A reunion with Dallas would give Elliott fringe RB2 value with Rico Dowdle spelling him as a change-of-pace back.
