22. Ezekiel Elliot
With Dak Prescott out for the season, it was up to Elliot to step up and show the NFL that he was ready to lead. However, the Cowboys’ running back, one of the finest pure athletes in the league, hasn’t delivered. Skills and mentality go hand in hand, but Elliot is definitely lacking both at the moment. He wants to make Christian McCaffrey-like money, but he hasn’t earned it.
Of course, the massive impact of losing Prescot hasn’t helped Elliot’s situation, but that doesn’t excuse his declining rushing game. If he doesn’t return to his onetime All-Pro level, it will affect his next big contract. Of course, a fresh start outside of ‘America’s Team’ might help him improve again, but Elliot needs to show something.
