Ezekiel Elliott has already got plenty of hype to live up to this year, and the newly released 2016 ESPN Fantasy Football Rankings have just added to it.
It’s clear that the network has high hopes for Elliott, and believe that he may be a good addition to your 2016 fantasy football team roster.
The former Ohio State Buckeye, who was just recently drafted No. 4 overall and has yet to play his first NFL game, was boldly ranked the fourth-best running back in fantasy football for the 2016 season on Friday. Only proven RBs Adrian Peterson, Le’veon Bell and Todd Gurley ranked ahead of him.
ESPN Fantasy Sports release their list of rankings on Twitter this Friday:
And boom goes the dynamite.

On the offensive side of the field, the Cowboys have a solid team heading into the upcoming season. There’s no reason for anyone to doubt that Elliott will have a successful rookie campaign this year.
