Free-agent RB Ezekiel Elliott (Cowboys) may draw interest from the Buffalo Bills in free agency, per sources on Friday, March 17.
Huddle Up: The source notes that the Bills are looking for a "big back, and Zeke checks that box." While it's hard to expect a ton from Elliott after what we've seen the past few years, the Bills would be a great situation for the 27-year-old, who would almost certainly have a good amount of goal-line opportunities on an elite offense. We'll tentatively call Elliott a flex option going into next year, but how high he lands on that spectrum will depend on where he signs.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been told by the team he is indeed being released, per source on Wednesday, March 15.
Huddle Up: Elliott has been almost non-existent and doesn't have the same juice in his legs since an elite showing in the first four years of his career, making this a no-brainer for the Cowboys when you consider his salary. In the process of Elliott's downfall in Dallas, Tony Pollard, who was given the franchise tag, has easily outplayed him in every aspect of the game and should be viewed as an RB1 going into 2023. As for Zeke, he figures to find a home somewhere if he wants to keep playing, but his fantasy outlook will be greatly dependent upon where he lands.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is likely to be released as early as Wednesday, March 15. Cutting Elliott would save the Cowboys $4.86 million. If they designate him a post-June 1 cut, they would save $10.9 million.
Huddle Up: Zeke still has some good football left in him, and he has had 10 rushing scores in three of the last four years. Where he lands will largely determine his fantasy value, but he's likely to be an RB2.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott, who is scheduled to make $16.7 million in 2023, is expected to accept a "large pay cut" to remain with the team, according to sources via Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys currently need to chop about $7 million to fit under the new $224.8 million cap for the 2023 season, so they probably do not have the luxury of keeping Zeke around at his current number. Elliott is more of an early-down grinder at this point of his career and is - at best - locked into a split backfield with Tony Pollard. In the likely event the Cowboys keep Elliott around this season, he should be considered nothing more than a low-end RB2 at best.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is a player that owner/general manager Jerry Jones wants to keep on the roster next season.
Huddle Up: Elliott may need to agree to a restructured contract to return, but it seems like the front offense wants him back next season. He will be part of a committee if the Cowboys re-sign Pollard, but Elliott could still be a No. 2 or No. 3 back in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is open to taking a pay cut in order to remain with the Cowboys, according to a source. He is scheduled to make $10.9 million in 2023.
Huddle Up: Elliott was sharing playing time with Tony Pollard this season, and the team wants to keep Pollard on the roster. He rushed for a career-low 876 yards but was able to post 12 rushing touchdowns. There is a good chance he stays with the Cowboys and probably will be a No. 2 back in most fantasy leagues.
