Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 13 times for 47 yards and caught all seven of his targets for 37 yards in a 17-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 16.
Huddle Up: Elliott has shredded Philadelphia historically, but he never found a rhythm in this one. While the Cowboys await their playoff fate, Elliott should close the year on a high note against Washington. He ran 23 times for 111 yards and a score against the Redskins in Week 2.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 24 times for 117 yards and two touchdowns against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, Dec. 15. Elliott also caught three passes for 43 yards.
Huddle Up: Elliott broke a five-game streak of being held to less than 100 yards on the ground, running around and through Rams defenders. Next up is a rematch with the Eagles, who surrendered 147 total yards and a TD to Elliott in their first meeting.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 81 yards and two touchdowns and caught two passes for 12 yards in a 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 14.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys had to abandon the run for much of the second half while playing from behind, but Elliott did manage his second multi-touchdown effort of the year. He hasn't been dominant in 2019, but a heavy workload makes him a weekly RB1 candidate.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran for 71 yards on 12 carries and caught seven of 10 targets for 66 yards but was held out of the end zone in the Week 13 loss against the Buffalo Bills.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys grabbed the early lead but quickly fell behind and let the game get away from them, phasing Elliott out of the gameplan as a rusher. He faces another tough matchup against the vaunted defense of the Chicago Bears next Thursday night, and he may be under the direction of a new head coach.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 21 times for 86 yards and caught four passes for 40 yards in a 13-9 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 12.
Huddle Up: He didn't exactly gash the Patriots, but fantasy owners will certainly take 126 yards from scrimmage after back-to-back duds from Elliott. This type of performance is more in line with what to expect from him going forward.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 16 times for 45 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for 28 yards and a score in a 35-27 win over the Detroit Lions in Week 11.
Huddle Up: Elliott again struggled with efficiency, but the two touchdowns made up for the lack of yards. He is always capable of a breakout performance, but Elliott is best viewed as a volume-based RB2 ahead of a Week 12 meeting with New England.

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.
