Editor’s Note: ESPN’s Josina Anderson has reported Ezekiel Elliott won’t play without a deal since this was first published.

Elliott has certainly established himself as one of the game’s best pure runners after leading the league in rushing yards in 2016 and 2018.

Only Le’Veon Bell (24.4 PPR points per game) and Alvin Kamara (21.8) have been more productive fantasy assets than Elliott (21.4) since 2016. And the Cowboys are positioned to team their bell-cow back up with potentially the best offensive line and defense of his career in 2019.

As long as Zeke can stay out of his own way off the field, his natural talent and secure three-down workload makes him more than deserving of a 1.01 selection in fantasy drafts, particularly those that are not PPR. Ian Hartitz
