Ezekiel Elliott's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on our latest projection, you can expect Ezekiel Elliott to be an elite fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 241 projected fantasy points puts him at #4 behind Christian McCaffrey and ahead of Joe Mixon. 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 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite running back. He is projected to live up to these high expectations. Ezekiel Elliott is expected to slightly improve on last season's #5 fantasy position rank.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT WEEK 1 AND 2 FANTASY OUTLOOK

Ezekiel Elliott is projected for 7.8 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #37 ranked running back and a starter 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 Jordan Howard but behind Kenyan Drake. Week 2 will be slightly worse based on projected rank (#39). He is projected for 7.5 fantasy points.

EZEKIEL ELLIOTT IS A BAD DFS VALUE ON FANDUEL AT $9.1K AND DRAFTKINGS AT $9.2K

He is projected for 9.3 FanDuel points and 11.3 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is coming up -$3540 short of $9.1K on FanDuel and -$4235 short of $9.2K 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.
