Through nearly two quarters against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Cowboys have relied on Dak Prescott and his group of talented wide receivers. The Dallas passing game has accounted for both touchdowns and is the main reason the Cowboys lead 16-14.
Elliott has carried the ball four times for 12 yards and caught one pass for three yards. Meanwhile, his backup Tony Pollard has seen significant action and has three receptions for 23 yards along with one carry for no gain.
It’s still only the first half of the first game of the season, but people who drafted Elliott in the first round in fantasy this year are concerned.

In all honesty, there will probably be games this season where Zeke has to shoulder the load. Tonight is not one of those nights though, evidently.
The Cowboys know they need to score to beat the Bucs, and the Tampa Bay secondary is vulnerable. That makes for a busy night for Dak and company.
