The star running back spoke the loudest after the 40-7 win on the home-road discrepancy for a .500 team that's perfect at AT&T Stadium and winless with ...]]> https://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Ezekiel_Elliott/5331120/cowboys-put-focus-on-road-woes-after-routing-jags-at-home 5331120 Mon, 15 Oct 2018 3:12:01 EDT Washington Times https://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Ezekiel_Elliott/5331120/cowboys-put-focus-on-road-woes-after-routing-jags-at-home <![CDATA[Ezekiel Elliott rumbled to 106 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries]]> Ezekiel Elliott rumbled to 106 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries while gaining 11 yards on his lone catch Sunday in Dallas’ Week 6 win over the Jaguars.

He also caught his only target for an additional 11 yards.

Elliott went over 100 rushing yards for the third time this season and broke off a long gain of 20 yards. He was rewarded for his efforts with a 15-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys continued to pour it on after building a sizable lead. While Elliott wasn't quite as involved as a pass catcher in this one, that can merely be attributed to the fact that his team led from the very beginning and was content to run the ball. He hadn't reached the end zone on the ground since Week 2, but his score in this one made him the fastest player in franchise history to record 25 career rushing touchdowns. Elliott will look to build on another strong effort next Sunday against the Redskins.

<![CDATA[Watt, Clowney, and Jackson the key to Texans' stout run defense]]> Ezekiel Elliott with 54 yards on 20 carries. In fact, the rush defense of Houston’s may have been the influencing factor for Dallas coach Jason Garrett’s reason to punt on fourth-and-1 from the Texans’ 42-yard line.

The Texans defense is tied for the second-fewest yards per carry surrendered in the NFL with 3.4, and Pro Football Focus has part of the answers as to why this is the case.

Among defenders with at least 200 snaps this season, the #Texans have three players ranked in the top 15 in run-defense grade]]>

The other option of course was Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey, whom the Jaguards selected fifth overall.

An underrated comparison though was also possibly on the table, that is the back-to-back top running backs taken. In 2017, the Jaguars selected LSU’s Leonard Fournette with the fourth pick of that round. However, news has arrived early that Fournette will not be suiting up for the Jaguars]]>

It’s down to all 11 on defense according to general manager Brian Gaine.

Speaking to SportsRadio 610, Gaine admitted his admiration for the former All-Pro, who had a breakout game of the season in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions, where he rushed for 152 yards.

“Ezekiel is one of the most talented running backs in the league because he does everything you want a running back to do.” said Gaine. “He can run the football inside. He has a perimeter rush element where he’s got enough speed to get to the edge. He can make X-plays, explosive plays. He makes chunk plays in the running game.]]>

<![CDATA[Denver Post Week 5 NFL picks]]>
The Steelers are a three-point favorite despite a 1-2-1 record. Atlanta is 1-3 after losing the last two of its three-game home-stand. Neither team can afford a loss so in situations like that, we go with the home team. Expect a track meet.

The Cowboys are a three-point underdog, but Houston should not be favored over anybody even after last week’s overtime win at Indianapolis. Running back Ezekiel Elliott leads the NFL with 426 rushing yards and he’ll get 115 in the win]]>

One particular area where both sides have been struggling has been the offensive lines. While that of Dallas had a decent game in Week 4 against the Lions, helping Elliott rush for 152 yards, overall the Cowboys’ offensive line has struggled this year]]>
