Ezekiel Elliott News
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott met with the NFL about a May incident in Las Vegas, and the league has determined that Elliott did not violate the league's Personal Conduct Policy. Elliott will not face a suspension and will be available to start the year for the Cowboys. Elliott has led the NFL in rushing yards in two of his first three seasons and there's no reason to believe he can't do that again based on how the Cowboys have used him. He should be one of the first two backs taken in fantasy drafts this upcoming season.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday. Their meeting will be to discuss events that transpired in Las Vegas in May. Elliott has already had a few off-field incidents, and this one involved him pushing over a security guard. Elliott was detained by police, but the security guard did not press charges so the running back was let go quickly. Roger Goodell and the NFL's discipline procedures are completely unpredictable, but it doesn't seem like this incident will result in a lengthy suspension. Dallas drafted Tony Pollard and Mike Webber in April, and they'd be in line for more work if Elliott were to surprisingly miss time.
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is unlikely to have his contract extended this season, according to several reports. The Cowboys started talking to Elliott about keeping him around long term this offseason, but Amari Cooper and Dak Prescott will take precedence over Elliott. Once Cooper and Prescott's contracts are taken care off, the Cowboys will go in harder on Elliott. For now, he's under team control for another two seasons and he may end up being a candidate for the 2021 franchise tag. With Elliott's off-field issues, a long-term deal may be a scary situation for Dallas.
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.
