Ezekiel Elliott 2023-24 Profile

Ezekiel Elliott — the 6 foot tall, 226 pound running back for the New England Patriots — found himself in a foreign circumstance prior to the 2023-24 season. Not only because he had signed with the Patriots, after the first 7 seasons of his NFL career were spent with the Dallas Cowboys, but also because he joined New England as the second running back on their depth chart; which hadn’t been the case for Elliott since his early days in college. While this represents the harsh reality of NFL running backs today, it might have hit particularly hard for Elliott, who is well accustomed to the spotlight. Still, Elliott had no choice but to make do with what he was given — which, now that the Patriots’ starting running back is injured, means another opportunity to prove that he’s still one of the world’s best running backs.

After playing in the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Elliott was listed as the #9 running back in his recruiting class. Despite expectations that he’d play for Missouri, his parents’ alma mater, Elliott ultimately committed to play college football at Ohio State University.

As a true freshman at Ohio State in 2013, Elliott rushed for 262 yards on 30 carries with 2 touchdowns, operating mostly as a backup. Then, in 2014, Elliott assumed the starting running back role. During that sophomore season, he compiled a whopping 1,878 rushing yards, 18 touchdowns, and 220 receiving yards.

In the 2015 Sugar Bowl against top-ranked Alabama, Elliott ran for 230 yards on 20 carries in a hard-fought 42–35 win where he was named the Offensive Player of the Game.

Elliott was named Offensive MVP of the National Championship Game after the game ended.

In the 2014 season, Elliott began the year by rushing for over 100 yards in 10 straight wins. He went on to amass 1,821 rushing yards, 23 rushing touchdowns, and 206 receiving yards on the season, which ended when Ohio State beat Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl.

Elliott produced an incredible rookie campaign for the Cowboys, finishing the year as the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,631 yards — third most by a rookie in NFL history — and also produced 15 total touchdowns. He was selected as a First-team All-Pro, and went to his first Pro Bowl.

While the Cowboys lost in their first playoff game that year, Elliott ran 22 times for 125 yards in the loss.

Elliott ended up being suspended for a portion of the 2017 season, as a result of domestic violence allegations his ex-girlfriend had made prior to the season. Therefore, Elliott finished the 2017 season with 242 carries for 983 yards and 7 rushing touchdowns to go along with 26 receptions for 269 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns in 10 games.

Back for a full season, Elliott shined in 2018; finishing the regular season with 1,434 rushing yards (most in the NFL) and 6 touchdowns to go along with 77 receptions for 567 yards and 3 receiving touchdowns in 15 games. He earned another Pro Bowl nomination at season’s end, and was also named a Second-team All-Pro. The Cowboys finished the regular season as the #4 seed in the NFC, won their Wild Card Round game, then lost in the Divisional Round.

Elliott finished the 2019 season with 1,357 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns to go along with 54 receptions for 420 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns in 15 games. He earned his third Pro Bowl nomination after the season ended. The Cowboys missed the playoffs.

Despite dealing with lingering knee and ankle injuries during the majority of the 2021 season, Elliott was still able to start all 17 games and rush for 1,002 yards and 10 touchdowns on 237 carries, along with 47 receptions for 287 yards and 2 receiving touchdowns. The Cowboys returned to the playoffs that season, but lost in the Wild Card Round.

Elliot finished the 2022 season with 876 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns to go along with 17 receptions for 92 yards in 15 games (he lost opportunities to emerging backup running back Tony Pollard). The Cowboys lost in the Divisional Round of the playoffs.

Thus far in the season (10 games), Elliott has 82 rushes for 331 yards, 2 rushing touchdowns, and 18 receptions for 108 receiving yards.

Ezekiel Elliott 2023-24 Season Forecast

Days before this article was written, the Patriots’ starting running back Rhamondre Stevenson was announced to be sidelined for a few weeks, due to an ankle injury. This opens the door for Ezekiel Elliott to reclaim the starting role he enjoyed during his Cowboys tenure. While it’s unknown whether Elliott can return to the excellent form he showed in his first few Cowboys seasons, at least he has the opportunity to prove his worth in the NFL. Ideally, Elliott can perform well in these next few games to show other teams that he’s still a worthwhile starting running back.
