Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice; shame on me. Ezekiel Elliott fooled many last year, coming off a career-worst season. But hopes for a bounce-back proved ill-conceived as his productivity took another downtick. Elliott averaged just 13.9 rushes per game, continuing a five-season decline from leading the league at 24.2 carries per game in 2017. Although his yards per rush (4.2) improved from 2021 (4.0), it's still indicative of a league-average producer and far below his career-best mark (5.1). Elliott's declining productivity extended to the passing game, too. He set career lows in yards per catch (6.1), receiving yards per game (16.9), and catch rate (72.3%). Fortunately, the Cowboys still gave him the lion's share of goal-line opportunities, leading to his third double-digit touchdown (12) season. With more changes on the offensive line, Elliott is far more likely to be part of a committee with Tony Pollard than re-emerge as a workhorse All-Pro.
