Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 89 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries and added six receptions for 33 yards in Week 2 versus the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott also fumbled twice, losing one.
Huddle Up: Dak Prescott converted three short touchdown runs, so Elliott's day could've been much bigger than it was. As it is, his fantasy owners will have to settle for another day in which he easily topped 20 fantasy points in PPR formats. Few fantasy running backs in recent memory possess such a high floor and do so without durability concerns. He's will be a no-brainer top-five option yet again in Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (illness) said he is feeling better but is not able to work out at this point. Elliott said he dealt with coughing and shortness of breath for a day or two because of COVID-19.
Huddle Up: Elliott should be ready to go for the start of training camp and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys. He should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts and will be a No. 1 running back each week.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has tested positive for COVID-19, according to his agent, Rocky Arceneaux. Elliott is 'feeling good,' per his representation.
Huddle Up: While it's hard to say what this really means for a world-class athlete at a position in which attrition is an enemy, Zeke should remain a highly drafted RB1. The long-term effects of coronavirus on the respiratory system is still being learned, and it should give gamers some level of concern. Monitor news reports on his situation.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will be one of the biggest beneficiaries with the Cowboys drafting WR CeeDee Lamb in the first round, according to a team beat reporter. Per Pro Football Focus, Elliott averaged 5.1 yards per carry when rushing in 11 personnel, fifth-highest among the 23 NFL players with at least 80 eligible carries in 2019. Additionally, Elliott led the NFL in rushing yards from 11 personnel with 823 yards on 161 attempts. With WRs Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb, defenses must respect the Cowboys' ability to pass and generally will be forced to replace at least one linebacker with a defensive back, switching to a nickel or dime sub-package.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys' passing-game additions are clearly opening things up for Zeke, who has finished as a top-five fantasy running back in three of his four pro seasons. Lamb's arrival only helps cement Elliott's place among the elite fantasy options.
