It's finally safe to draft Ezekiel Elliott in the top 5


The Cowboys offered Elliott a contract before training camp. The Dez Bryant experiment is still fresh in the minds of many Cowboys fans, and the last thing they want to have is an overpaid RB who doesn't produce the numbers expected of the paycheck. I don't think they'll be a lot of learning there. he's a smart guy, an instinctive guy. Elliott will probably get more touches than the Saints' Alvin Kamara and has more years of success than the Panthers' Christian McCaffrey.

ESPN, which cited an unidentified source, reported that the Cowboys will call up running back Jordan Chunn from the practice squad and will place rookie guard Connor McGovern (pectoral muscle) on injured reserve.

Hopefully, we see a great game, and for those of you in the path of what's coming (Hurricane Dorian), take precautions and stay safe. It's time to starting drafting him as such, even if he's not fully prepared for Week 1.

Authorities have confirmed the vehicle belongs to Kevin, but he was reportedly not driving at the time of the accident. One of Kevin Hart's classic muscle cars got into a vehicle accident that ultimately landed the actor in the hospital.

Does this mean you should use a first-round pick on Elliott? The fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft is due to make $3.9 million this season and $9.1 million in 2020. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones had said after his team's final preseason game on Thursday that he was "operating as though right now he's going to miss regular-season games".

Given that pretty much every National Football League game roster features at least three true running backs, the Cowboys clearly have a good feeling they'll be getting another running back from somewhere. Elliott noted he wanted to be a Cowboys player for his career but understands the complicated nature of the business. "So it's just the nature of the game, but I want to be a Dallas Cowboy for as long as I can". Elliott has returned to being a can't-miss fantasy football option.

However, the Cowboys are also wary of extending another overblown contract that doesn't pan out.
