RB Ezekiel Elliott
It’s been rough for Zeke all year long, especially after Dak Prescott fell to injury in Week 5. With the injuries, the horrible defensive play, and bad coaching, it’s no wonder why the Cowboys have been struggling.
However, you would think the best player on the roster would at least be the shining spot on this squad. In actuality, Elliott is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry, the worst in his career. He has yet to break the century mark in any game, and on top of that, Zeke has fumbled the ball 5 times already, meaning he’s well on his way to having the most fumbles in a single season in his career so far.
He actually has a nice matchup this week against the Minnesota Vikings, a team that has been downright awful at stopping the run. Although that may be the case, the Cowboys offense is so bad right now that I have a hard time imagining them figuring it out versus a favorable matchup. Sit Zeke if you can.
Honorable Mentions: As usual, here’s my list of players that could be argued to be deserving in these spots.
- Top Starts: WR DeAndre Hopkins, RB Nick Chubb, RB Dalvin Cook, QB Justin
- Top Sleepers: WR Justin Jefferson, WR Tee Higgins, WR Christian Kirk
- Top Busts: QB Carson Wentz, QB Jake Luton, RB James Robinson
