Dallas Cowboys lead running back Ezekiel Elliott was able to get in limited practices all week, but is still listed as questionable this week, per Michael Gehlken. It appears that Elliott’s limited practice were more to do with maintenance than of real concern, but with any back injury, re-injury is a concern.

Elliott did play through this injury last week and played well. When deciding who to start in fantasy this week, you’ll want to start Elliott. He has played better than many people expected after a down 2020. Through five games, Elliott has run the ball 85 times for 452 yards and five touchdowns, while catching nine passes for 55 yards and one touchdown.

Fantasy football implications

The Patriots defense is middling on most accounts and their offense isn’t going to put them up to big leads. Elliott should get plenty of work in a close game or with the lead and is a must start.
