    Well, he's on pace for 1648 yards and 12 TDs, so you might not be far off.

    I'll confess to not believing in Zeke. I thought he'd get a McFadden style bump from the o line but really wasn't sold on him as anything that special. But he tore apart a team that shut down Todd Gurley, while the entire left side of the o line was injured.

    Zeke has looked good the last few weeks. If he can start breaking off some of the home run type of runs then he'll definitely take his game to the next level.

    When Romo comes back and the defense has to play deeper then he will. See what I did there?

    I am still waiting for that one big run.

    It seems he has huge holes and a lot of open space, then busts out but gets run down or flops around.

    I guess I am holding his college tendencies against him. At OSU, he would be held in check, then bust a 70 yarder.

    I'd like him to break one for a long TD, not just a good gain.

    I agree. He's definitely had his chances but hasn't quite turned on the second gear like at OSU quite yet.

    I'm hoping that starts coming soon and that it's just him having to get stronger since he missed so much time with that hamstring issue.

    Time will tell.

    It's a lot rarer in the NFL for sure.

    At OSU the zone blocking scheme would blow open a massive hole just as Zeke was hitting the line at full speed. Then his 4.5 speed would blow past college defenders lacking NFL makeup speed.

    The runs will come, but I'd like to see him "fed" more in the short passing game by design.

    ...and the homers have it.

    Even the the range of poll options gravely underestimated Zekes production. Should've had another option for 1500+/1400+ rushing yards, but who would've picked it? Astounding.
