Ezekiel Elliott Player Overview

Elliott has made it through 2 pro seasons without a meaningful injury. The conduct-policy suspension cost him 6 games in 2017. Around that, though, he actually increased his workload after carrying a league-high 322 times as a rookie. Elliott jumped from 21.5 rushes per game in 2016 to an NFL-leading 24.2 last season. There's no reason to expect Dallas to change that, which obviously increases Elliott's injury exposure. But he sports no other risk signals.
