If Ezekiel Elliott stays the course, he will get my vote for MVP as a rookie. The Cowboys first round pick has been dominating the NFL week in and week out.
Elliott’s stats so far through 11 games have been staggering; he’s rushed for 1199 yards and 11 touchdowns. He’s also added 24 catches for 303 yards and a touchdown.
Elliott leads the league in rushing and has helped the Cowboys hit a 10-1 record. Only three running backs in NFL history have had at least 1,199 rushing yards through their first 11 games: Elliott, Adrian Peterson and Eric Dickerson. When the Dallas Morning News asked Elliott about the MVP talk, he liked the sound of it as well.
“Elliott said Thursday all the MVP talk “sounds good.”
“‘But it’s not really what we’re focused on,’ Elliott added. ‘They can say ‘Dallas Cowboys MVP, Dallas Cowboys offensive line MVP.’ Those guys are great. They’re beasts. They’re why I’m successful.’”
Who do you think should be MVP? Do you agree with us and think Elliott has a fair chance?
