Ezekiel Elliott's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON FANTASY VALUE

Our projections and the market data (ownership, ADP, actual FP) both have a similar expectation for him (Projected Rank #6, Market Rank #8). He is owned in 100 percent of CBS leagues and are projected to average 16.2 FPs. With a better than expected projection rank there are other running backs you should avoid considering that are projected for fewer points. Kareem Hunt (126 FP) and Christian McCaffrey (129 FP) are worse options. The projections also have Ezekiel Elliott as the #7 player in PPR leagues.

Make sure you visit Sportsline for picks against the spread, on totals and the money line by the computer and top handicappers.

WEEKLY FANTASY VALUE

We are projecting a slightly below average week for Ezekiel Elliott where he is projected to be the #8 running back, slightly under his rest of season ranking of #6. Owners will get what they expect from him where he is the #8 running back based on ownership. Most fantasy players have roughly 30% of their weekly projections deviate significantly from their season average, but he is projected to be more volatile than most. He is projected for 2 good weeks versus one really underperforming week.

PAST FANTASY PERFORMANCE (2016 TO 2018)

With 9 games played this season Elliott is the #8 ranked RB. He is trending down based on lower per game fantasy ranking vs 2017. He is relatively weaker than stronger in more categories. The strengths are bolded below.
