With the 2017 season and all the potential distractions a six-game suspension brought with it behind Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys running back says he expects 2018 to be his best season yet.
"I do, I definitely do," Elliott said. "I'm excited for this year and I definitely have high expectations for myself."
The Cowboys were never able to recover from missing Elliott in 2017, and finished the season out of the playoffs with a 9-7 record. Now, with Zeke back and solely focused on football, his teammates are expecting more from the third-year running back.
The latest news from around North Texas.
"With the emotional roller coaster he had last year, wondering if he was playing or not playing (each week), it takes a toll," Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said. "Having that freedom coming into this year, just being able to work, I know it's going to do wonders for him."
