Quintuplet Dallas Cowboys studs – left-backer Tyron Smith, right-back Zack Martin, line-back Micah Parsons, full-back Trevon Diggs and pitcher Bryan Anger – were elected to the 2022 Pro Bowl, the tournament NFL announced December 22.

A notable absence from the all-star list, for the second year in a row, is making a comeback Ezekiel Elliott, who lost to Dalvin Cook of Minnesota, James Conner of Arizona and Alvin Kamara of New Orleans. Considering Zeke’s injury-ridden, statistically rife campaign, his omission doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Or not?

Based on James Fragoza of Pro Football Network, the $90 million return was one of the biggest losses in NFC and should have been cut compared to its Saints counterpart.

“Okay, it’s not all about the stats, but Alvin Kamara didn’t sniff out Ezekiel Elliot’s numbers this year,” Fragoza wrote. “Damn it, he’s even trailed Elliott’s sub, Tony Pollard, in rushing runs this season (676 to 668). The average Kamara is 3.6 yards per run. Now, Elliott’s 4.3 average is not surprising. His 9 TD and 862 yards are nothing to scoff at, though, as both are second in NFC.

“Kamara To be The offense of New Orleans without Drew Brees and Michael Thomas in the house. He ranks near the top among all the characters received for saints, but Elliott’s number is not far behind. So that doesn’t push Kamara over Elliott in my eyes. ”
