The Facts: Asked by a reader if we be concerned about Elliott's workload in his rookie season, DallasCowboys.com's Bryan Broaddus replied: "You drafted him to play. If you have to hand him the ball a thousand times to win games - do it. The way that this league is set up you have these players for four to five years unless it is a quarterback. Use them up then go draft another one."
Diehards Line: Broadus’ DallasCowboys.com colleague David Helman added: "I don't think 'concerned' is the word I'd use, but it's definitely something I'd be mindful of. DeMarco Murray got 83 percent of the carries for this team in 2014, and he finished with more than 400 total touches. That's a tad much for anyone, let alone a rookie. Fortunately, the Cowboys have vastly superior depth at the position this year. I think Zeke will finish with roughly 280-300 carries, which would put him right around 18-20 per game. That should leave plenty of carries for Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden to get involved. ..." And that would be sufficient to keep fantasy owners happy as well -- especially if Elliott is part of the passing game as expected.
