Game status: Ezekiel Elliott is ACTIVE for Week 14.

Game day update: Ezekiel Elliott expected to play, per Todd Archer.

The Dallas Cowboys have listed running back Ezekiel Elliott as questionable on the official injury report ahead of this week’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Dealing with a calf injury, he was a limited participant in practice all week. However, he is expected to suit up this week, despite the nagging ailment.

Fantasy impact: Ezekiel Elliott (calf)

It’s basically a “big bruise,” Elliott said earlier this week, and despite the soreness, he was adamant that he would play through it for Sunday’s tilt against Cincinnati. Elliott had 77 yards on 18 carries last week against the Ravens. He also caught four passes for 18 yards. Elliott has seen his overall fantasy value take a steep drop this season as the Cowboys offense struggles along without quarterback Dak Prescott. Still, he has the talent and gets the touches to make him a solid starting option every week. This one is no different. Opposing running backs are averaging an incredible five yards per carry against the Bengals this season, so Elliott has the potential for a big game this week, bruise or not.
