2016

Elliott ran through, around and over collegiate defenses the last two years, collecting 41 touchdowns and 4,125 yards from scrimmage. As dominant as Elliott was in the Big 10, he was even better during three career Bowl games: 83 carries, 625 yards, 10 touchdowns, 7.5 a carry. Not too shabby for someone who finished eighth in the Heisman voting as a junior; maybe they should run that election after the season is over. He showed the ability to play on all downs and in all packages, making him an unusually polished running back entering his freshman season in the NFL The Pokes snagged him with the fourth overall pick in May. You can have a long discussion about who should go No. 2 in a rookies-only draft, but Elliott is going to be the obvious No. 1 dynasty league pick everywhere mostly because of his talent, but it also speaks to an unexciting crop of rookies. With that in mind, the isolation of Elliott is only going to make him more expensive in most pools. Ah, but there's plenty to like. The Cowboys still have the consensus No. 1 offensive line (it graded first in both run and pass blocking last year, per Pro Football Focus), and Dallas has a paper-thin schedule.The window to win is narrow in Dallas, given the age of the key core and with that, it's unlikely the Cowboys will make Elliott wait to prove much.
