Ezekiel Elliott 2021 Outlook in Fantasy Football Talk Posted September 10 2 minutes ago, mverkruyse said: I own Zeke so I want/need him to have a turnaround from this performance, and I do think this will likely be the low-water mark for him this year. That said, while I get the gameplan was to throw on TB, the piece that concerns me the most that a lot of people seem to be ignoring is the lack of Zeke usage in the passing game. In a game where Dak throws 58 times, it's downright criminal that Zeke ended with 2 targets. If Zeke had 6-8 targets in this game I'd be feeling a lot better, even with the poor rushing numbers. IMO Zeke's passing game usage/role this week was dictated by the oline issues coming in as well as the Bucs stout front 7. The cowboys didn't know for certain if Collins was going to play and they didn't have Martin. As a result, Zeke was asked to pass protect all game long. In the 4 full games the cowboys had with Dak last year Zeke had 5, 7, 12 and 8 targets. The stat I most care about from yesterday was Zeke's snap rate, which was 80%. The circumstances yesterday were just the perfect storm that hurt Zeke.
