The loss of weight has been a major theme in sports for years, but in 2017 the loss of a certain weight seems to have taken a turn for the better.

Here are some of the NFL teams that have lost the least weight this season: Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had the least amount of weight loss this season.

He weighed in at only 235 pounds, down from 265 pounds when he was healthy.

The Cowboys had a great season in 2016, as they won three Super Bowls and had a winning record in every year of the 20-team league.

But the Cowboys struggled to make the playoffs this year, finishing with a 5-11 record, and they will likely be looking to make a deep run in the NFC playoffs.

Atlanta Falcons Falcons RB Devonta Freeman, who lost weight for the first time in 2017, was a surprise runner-up for the MVP award.

Freeman is the most talented running back in the NFL, but he has struggled with his body and was limited to just one game in 2017.

Green Bay Packers Packers RB Eddie Lacy, who is on track to be a full-time starter for the season, has been in the thick of the playoff race this year.

He has totaled 1,838 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, good for seventh in the league behind only Aaron Rodgers, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch and Le’Veon Bell.

Denver Broncos Broncos RB Demaryius Thomas, who had the second-highest total of any running back this season after rushing for 1,009 yards, was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Thomas is one of the best all-around backs in the game, but the Broncos did not reach the playoffs in 2017 due to injuries to their core players.

Minnesota Vikings Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will miss the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

He missed all of the 2016 season, including two games in 2016 with a shoulder injury.

Peterson, who rushed for 1:06 a.m. on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, will be eligible to return to the Vikings starting lineup in early September.

New England Patriots Patriots WR Julian Edelman, who was the first receiver to lead the NFL in receiving yards this season with 1,764, is expected to return after missing all of 2017 with an ankle injury.

He averaged 8.8 yards per catch during the regular season, but caught only 22 passes for 239 yards and two touchdowns in the playoffs.
