Ezekiel Elliott News
The NFL is likely to review an incident in which Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott had a run-in with a concert security guard in Las Vegas to determine if he violated the terms of his previous suspension, according to two league sources. Elliott was briefly handcuffed earlier this month after bumping a security guard, but he wasn't arrested or charged. Sources close to Elliott said they don't think the language in Elliott's previous suspension supports discipline in light of the video footage. Elliott was previously suspended six games in 2017 for acts of physical abuse against an ex-girlfriend. When it comes down to it, it'll likely be up to commissioner Roger Goodell as to whether the NFL decides to discipline Elliott over this incident. Stay tuned for more details, but the top-three fantasy pick could be facing more discipline.
The Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliott seem to be on the same page as far as discussions on a long-term contract extension go. However, the Cowboys have made it clear that quarterback Dak Prescott and wide receiver Amari Cooper are at the front of the line for extensions this offseason. Elliott is one of the true workhorse backs in the NFL and at 23 years old will get a handsome raise whenever he gets an extension. He barely missed 1,000 yards in 2017 when he was suspended and has gone well over 1,000 yards rushing in his other two seasons. Elliott has 4,048 yards rushing (4.7 average) with 28 rushing touchdowns in his three NFL seasons. He had a career-high 77 receptions for 567 yards and three more touchdowns in 2018 and is a surefire top-three fantasy selection in 2019 drafts.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was handcuffed at a concert on Saturday after he had a minor altercation with a security guard. Video obtained by TMZ shows Elliott bodying the security guard backward into a metal fence. He was later released without being charged and went to his youth football camp in Las Vegas, according to his attorney. While Elliott was not formally charged with a crime, under the personal conduct policy, the NFL can punish a player even if he wasn't charged by the police. This isn't Elliott's first incident as the NFL suspended him for six games in 2017 for an incident involving his ex-girlfriend. This doesn't appear to be a major issue for Elliott but whenever his name pops up, it is a concern.
The Dallas Cowboys are open to finding a backup behind running back Ezekiel Elliott with Rod Smith still on the free-agent market. Elliott has won the rushing title in two of his first three seasons and hasn't missed a game due to injury, but the Cowboys need better insurance behind him. Dallas wants to find a quality backup, but they aren't sure if that'll come in free agency or through the draft. As of right now, Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn are the backups listed on the team's depth chart behind Elliott.
Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said that the team will pick up running back Ezekiel Elliott's fifth-year option. The 23-year-old has two 1,000-yard seasons in his three years in the NFL and ran 304 times for 1,434 yards and six touchdowns in his 15 games last year. He also caught a career-high 77 passes for an additional 567 yards and three scores. Elliott is one of the premier running backs in the NFL and should continue to be a high first-round pick in fantasy drafts this fall.
