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.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott says he's ready for a larger workload after logging 13 rushing attempts for 53 yards and catching one pass for 10 yards in the team's Week 1 win over the New York Giants. 'I think I'm ready now for a normal workload,' Elliott said Wednesday, Sept. 11. 'It just depends on how ... (the coaches) are feeling on Sunday. But if they ask, I'll be able to go out there and do it.'
Huddle Up: No concerns over Zeke: Fire him up as a RB1 in a favorable matchup Sunday against Washington.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott carried the ball 13 times for 53 yards and a touchdown against the New York Giants on Sunday, Sept. 8. He added one reception for 10 yards.
Huddle Up: As expected, Elliott's involvement was modest, logging 14 touches on 34 (of 62) offensive snaps. The yardage was far below what fantasy owners will want to see as he rounds into game shape, but Elliott salvaged his performance with a score. Brighter days are ahead for Elliott, who remains a top RB1.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott impressed head coach Jason Garrett in his return to practice, but Garrett said Thursday, Sept. 5, that it's 'too early' to say if Elliott will be on a pitch count Sunday, Sept. 8, in the season opener.
Huddle Up: Don't expect Elliott to pick right back up with his 2018 per-game average of 25.4 touches, but even if opens with, say, 18 touches, Elliott still is in prime position to turn in a RB1 performance. Start him if you have have him.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is slated for 20 to 25 repetitions in Week 1 Sunday, Sept. 8, against the New York Giants.
Huddle Up: The word "repetitions" is vague, but it seems like he'll only play one-third of the average amount of offensive snaps in a game. That can always change, but owner Jerry Jones said during the contract stalemate that the team wanted him healthy for the stretch run. It's entirely possible he is that limited, or they could change their gameplan as things unfold. Elliott would fall to RB2 value in this event, but you have to start him if you own him. He just doesn't make for a good DFS play. Tony Pollard becomes a flex option against the Giants.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott agreed to a six-year, $90 million extension that makes him the highest-paid running back in the league Wednesday, Sept. 4. It's worth $103 million over eight years in total with $50 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Zeke owners can rest a little easier on the eve of the NFL season as their RB1 is back and ready to go.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is in shape to play Sunday if there is a contract done in time, his agent said Tuesday, Sept. 3. 'I think Zeke is showing he's committed by coming back to Dallas We didn't come here not to do a deal,' said agent Rocky Arceneaux.
Huddle Up: Fantasy managers who've been able to wait this long before their drafts seem to have played it smart. Elliott is clearly in the conversation as the RB1 as long as he's on the field. It's finally beginning to seem as though it is a reasonable expectation.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is flying back to Dallas Tuesday, Sept. 3, in case a deal is struck with the Cowboys. He has been in Cabo training since training camp opened, but a deal isn't done and obstacles remain.
Huddle Up: There is no real news here except that he'll be in the area if the two sides can agree on a deal. There is still time to land a deal for him to serve as your RB1 in Week 1. Tony Pollard would be a high-end RB2 against the New York Giants if not.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's contract talks continued through Sunday, Sept. 1, but a deal is still not close. A source said 'everything' was holding up the deal.
Huddle Up: Elliott could be a game-time decision as we progress through the week. Tony Pollard could be a high-end RB2 against the New York Giants if Elliott doesn't strike a deal.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has made some progress in contract extension talks with the Cowboys, but the two sides have several more issues to work out, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Fantasy players will need to monitor the situation over the next week to see if Elliott will be on the field for Week 1. He is a risky option in fantasy leagues because of his uncertain status, but he is one of the best running backs in the NFL.
