Ezekiel Elliott Named FedEx Ground Player of Week 4

    After a huge day running the ball against the in Week 4, RB has been named the .

    Zeke's 143 rushing yards were his highest single-game total since 2018. It helped vault him to 4th place on the NFL's rushing leaderboard behind , Nick Chubb, and Joe Mixon.

    Elliott also had one rushing touchdown against Carolina.

    Averaging 85.5 yards per game through the first four weeks, Zeke is on pace to have over 1,400 rushing yards in 2021. That average would likely be much higher if hadn't missed the season opener against Tampa Bay, and Zeke would likely be 2nd on the leaderboard.

    Elliott was held to just 33 yards on 11 carries against the Bucs. The Cowboys clearly knew what they could and couldn't so without Martin and strategized accordingly, limiting Zeke's production for that week.

    His rushing totals have consistently improved; 71 yards against the Chargers and 95 against the Eagles. But last Sunday's explosion against Carolina was a flashback to the kind of plays, especially that 47-yarder, we haven't seen from Elliott in a good while.

    In fact, that run was the third-longest of Zeke's career and the longest he's had since his rookie season.

    Congratulations to Ezekiel Elliott for his great performance and this well-deserved recognition!

    I like what I’m seeing from Zeke so far. He should try getting in shape more often. Funny how u play better when u commit yourself to conditioning. But the rejuvenated Zeke, the improved OL and the efficiency of Dak has this offense running smooth. Moore has also done a great job calling plays. If we have continued health, the defense keeps generating turnovers and this rookie class keeps showing out, we might make some noise in the playoffs.


    Gary b, like “he should try getting in shape more often”. Give the guy a break, he only signed for $90 million. LOL.

    Getting in shape might have had a little part in his renewed self but I think we all know that the best thing that has helped the ole EE man has been the ole TP man!
