Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott 'could be in line for a monster day' against the Detroit Lions in Week 11, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. Elliott rushed for 152 yards and added 88 receiving yards against the Lions last year.
Huddle Up: Considering Detroit's run defense might be even worse than it was last season, this is golden opportunity for Elliott to rebound from a horrible Week 10 performance. Expect RB1 production from him this weekend.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 20 times for 47 yards during the team's Week 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Elliott added a pair of receptions for 16 yards.
Huddle Up: Elliott never got going Sunday night, and it was only the stubbornness of Jason Garrett and Kellen Moore that gave Elliott so many touches. The last time Zeke had a quiet game (Week 5 against Green Bay) he responded with three straight 100-plus-yard performances -- a streak that ended Sunday night. He'll look to start a new one next Sunday against a Detroit defense that has struggled all year long against the run.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 23 times for 139 yards in Week 9 against the New York Giants on Monday, Nov. 4.
Huddle Up: Elliott saw his four-game touchdown streak come to an end, but he has three consecutive 100-yard games. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues might be surprised that he didn't have any catches or targets, his first game without a catch since Nov. 5, 2017. Next up is a visit from the Minnesota Vikings in Week 10.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried 22 times for 111 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also added six receptions on seven targets for 36 yards.
Huddle Up: Elliott has scored in four consecutive games and six of seven since ending his holdout right before the start of the season. If there is one complaint about him to this point, it's that he hasn't been able to hit the big play yet (one run of 20-plus yards on 135 attempts). Nonetheless, his workhorse status and durability continues to make him one of the best players in fantasy. Elliott will get a chance to rest up next week before getting his second look at the New York Giants in Week 9.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 28 times for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 6 against the New York Jets and he added five grabs for 47 yards on six targets.
Huddle Up: Elliott has posted rushing scores in three straight games and five of six outings overall, and he has registered three 100-yard performances overall this season. He has certainly been doing his part for fantasy owners. The Cowboys host the Eagles in Week 7 on Sunday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried 12 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers. Elliott was targeted four times out of the backfield, catching a pair for 29 yards.
Huddle Up: Ninety-one total yards and a touchdown isn't bad production, but given Green Bay's recent struggles against the run and Elliott's history against the Packers this was a disappointment. Down 28, the Cowboys had to pretty much abandon the run, but Elliott wasn't great even before the score dictated the change with 21 of his 62 rushing yards coming on a pair of snaps before halftime where Green Bay was playing a prevent defense. Elliott should be primed to rebound against the winless Jets in Week 6.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 18 times for 35 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Sept. 29. Elliott added six receptions for 30 yards.
Huddle Up: After meeting little resistance over the first three weeks, Dallas ran into a physical Saints defense on SNF that consistently penetrated and contacted Elliott while still in the backfield. He still finished with 65 combined yards and a score, which isn't terrible production, and is primed to bounce back in Week 5 in a tasty matchup with a Packers team that has been hemorrhaging rushing yardage of late.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 125 yards in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys while adding two receptions for 14 yards on three targets.
Huddle Up: Zeke and the Cowboys turned it on in the second half, and Dallas actually had a second 100-yard rusher with Tony Pollard joining the fun in the blowout victory. The sledding should be a little tougher in Week 4 on the road against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is expected to receive his normal workload in Week 3's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.
Huddle Up: After missing the entire preseason due to a contract dispute, Elliott was only on the field for 54.4% of the team's offensive snaps in Week 1 and 76.8% of the snaps in Week 2, after having never played fewer than 80% of the offense's snaps in any game last year. As one of the top performers at his position, he should be started with confidence going forward in all fantasy formats, although he could be pulled from the Miami game prematurely if the score gets too lopsided.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 23 times for 111 yards and a touchdown and added two catches for nine yards in Week 2 versus the Washington Redskins.
Huddle Up: Elliott is doing everything in his power to prove working out in Cabo is every bit as effective as training camp. One week after splitting carries with Tony Pollard, Elliott handled 68 percent of the team's carries. Although last year's workload (400-plus touches, including playoffs) is bound to catch up to him at some point, owners should feel good about his ability to deliver top-five production at his position just about every week.
