Ezekiel Elliott’s NFL career is off to an impressive start, though he’ll have to wait until the end of the season to see if he is going to take home any hardware.
However, that doesn’t mean he can’t win some honors at the NFL season’s midway point. On ESPN’s NFL Live, Elliott was named the league’s top offensive player who is not a quarterback.

Now on the Dallas Cowboys, Elliott leads the NFL in rushing through eight weeks with 799 yards on 159 carries. Elliott, a front runner for the league’s Rookie of the Year trophy, is averaging 114.1 yards per game and had a streak of four straight games with at least 130 rushing yards earlier in the year.
Elliott has also found the end zone five times and has made 15 catches for 150 yards.
The rookie went fourth overall in this year’s NFL Draft after piling up 3,961 yards in three seasons at Ohio State.
