Cowboys make Zeke Highest-Paid Running Back


USA Today Sports

The Dallas Cowboys have signed running back Ezekiel Elliott to a 6-year, $90 million contract extension.

The deal includes $50 million guaranteed.

Zeke’s $15 million annually surpasses Todd Gurley’s previous league-high mark of $14.375 million per year and makes the 24-year-old the league’s highest-paid RB.

Great news for fantasy owners who were shaking in their boots wondering if Elliot would pull a Le’Veon Bell, but he’s ready to go week one when they take on a weak Giants defense.

Elliot is also a smart option for daily fantasy lineups.
