    I am curious to see where Zeke is.

    QB's have the element of surprise. They can run when plays break down. Or run read options. Dak has taken advantage of that as teams focus on Zeke near the goal line.

    I don't take a whole lot out of this stat.

    Another PFF made up stat?
    I can create a formula that shows Olawale is the best even on a few runs.

    Id say goal to go situations are extremely important situations.... This isnt a cherry picked stat like you seem to be suggesting. I get the sentiment, as there are a lot of those type of stats out there...this isnt one.

    Take Elliott out and have Prescott line up at RB since he is better at the goal line.

    See how successful Prescott is when the defense knows what's coming.

    Why is it that the biggest supporters of Prescott are haters of Elliott?

    Things that make you go, hmmm.

    I can only speak for myself but it's because Dak has over performed expectations while Zeke has under performed expectations. Had Zeke continued to perform at his 2016 level I wouldn't be complaining about him. I would have hoped he wouldn't have peaked in his rookie year but it seems that's what he had done.

    Then his biggest fans have to come up with all kinds of excuses for him while exaggerating how good he is by saying things like "he pushed pile 4-5 years every play" or "he always falls forward for 3 yards". Mind you, his yards before and after contact don't support these statements but doesn't stop them being said.

    Zeke has probably played up to par. Mind you when the Cowboys got him.....the league started to value the running back again and guys like Leonard Fornette, Saquon Barkley and CMac were all taken top 10. He's performed better than all of them or just as good. He's been the best back in the NFL since 2016.

    This myth has already been debunked. Someone posted on this site that Dak is actually better when Zeke is not on the field.

    I agree. This is probably one of their more important stats and less cherry picked.

    I don't think that's a thing. I'm a fan of both. Nobody really seems to like Zeke on this site.

    Dak is a beast, that's what you should take from this. Even the horrid Garrett was smart enough last year to realize he needed to go away from Zeke and go with Dak in critical short yardage situations.

    Because they understand the game of football.

    I have found that most Dak haters like Garrett and like Zeke. LOL

    Says it all right there.

    I ask again...……...what is to like about Zeke? The guy is about as unlikeable as it gets.

    He was the best back in 2016. He was not the best back in 2017, 2018, or 2019.
