Friday PM update: Elliott is listed as questionable, but all signs currently point toward him playing this week.

Friday update: On Jerry Jones’ regular radio spot on Friday, he was very optimistic that Elliott would play this week against the Vikings. His presence hurts Tony Pollard’s fantasy upside, but both are starts.

Thursday update: Elliott feels good about where he is physically at this point in the week. He appears to be trending toward playing this week.

Thursday update: Elliott was practicing again on Thursday, per Todd Archer. We’ll likely see another limited practice, but this week is looking more hopeful and a Friday full practice would be great to see.

Wednesday PM update: Elliott was officially listed as a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.

The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a bad loss to the Green Bay Packers. They are hoping to have some reinforcements back this week as running back Ezekiel Elliott could return to the field this week. He has been sidelined with an injury and backup RB Tony Pollard has been manning the backfield in his absence. Elliott was spotted at walkthroughs on Wednesday and if he is ready, he will play Sunday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 11

Elliott has been sidelined for the last two games and the offense has taken a slight step back. Elliott had 57 yards and two touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in the last game that he played. Elliott had 109 attempts for 443 yards and four touchdowns this season. He should slot in as the starter whenever he is back and should be started in your fantasy football lineup is he is active.

If he is inactive, continue to play Pollard. He has gotten the bulk of the carries as well as some work in the passing game.
