Ezekiel Elliott's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Ezekiel Elliott to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 103 projected fantasy points puts him at #13 behind Chris Carson and ahead of Miles Sanders. He has averaged 15.56 fantasy points in his past 39 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 12.9 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#9) is better than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #14 ranked running back. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is not projected for elite value. Ezekiel Elliott is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #5 fantasy position rank.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT WEEK 9 FANTASY PROJECTION AND RANK

Ezekiel Elliott is projected for 11.2 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #13 ranked running back and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a below average week with fewer fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is ranked above Melvin Gordon but behind D`Andre Swift. This is a typical week based on his weekly ranking being the same as his rest of season ranking. His rank is the same in PPR leagues.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $8K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $6.6K

He is projected for 12.5 FanDuel points and 14.8 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$598 short of $8K on FanDuel and -$157 short of $6.6K on DraftKings. There should be much better options (see below). Barring a significant lineup change consider him a daily fantasy player to fade. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.
