Ezekiel Elliott's Fantasy Scouting Report

SCOUT ANALYST TAKE

If Zeke Elliott were in camp he would be projected to be the #2 running back behind Saquon Barkley. But with the holdout we are assuming a 50% chance he misses the first 4 weeks and with that adjustment he is 'only' #3. After LeVeon Bell never signed we can no longer assume that the holdout will end early or before the season.

DRAFT ADVICE AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest pre-season projection, you can expect Ezekiel Elliott will be an elite fantasy starter. His 255 projected fantasy points puts him at #2 behind Saquon Barkley and ahead of Alvin Kamara. He has averaged 16.68 fantasy points in his past 15 games, which is slightly more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 15.9 fantasy points. He is slightly less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #4 ranked running back. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 99%, he is the #7 most highly owned running back. Ezekiel Elliott is expected to slightly improve on last season's #5 fantasy position rank.
