Elliot was not just short yardage. He could gain 1-3 or more yards when other RBs would have gotten nothing. And he punished tacklers over and over to the point they made business decisions when time to tackle him later. He could wear them down. In the second half he broke big plays. That’s what he is missing now. But Pollard could. What will we see this year if we are without Elliot.
I have zero recollection of Zeke punishing defenders the past few seasons. And he was at close to the bottom of broken tackles amongst all running backs, big and small.
