Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott (calf) looks fresh in Week 16 return against Eagles

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott looked like a new man in the team's 37-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.

What It Means:

Elliott made his return from a one-game absence due to a calf injury, and it seems as though the brief time off did wonders for his body. The 25-year-old showed a burst he hadn't for pretty much the entire season. On the day, he finished with 19 carries for 105 yards while also hauling in all 4 of his targets for 34 yards. The Cowboys are playing for their playoff lives in Week 17, so look for Elliott to be relied upon heavily once again.

With 15.9 FanDuel points, Elliott currently ranks 12th among all Week 16 rushers. Right now, our models project him for 14.22 next week against the New York Giants.
