Fantasy Slant: Ezekiel Elliott Suspension Reinstated

A federal appeals court on Thursday reinstated the six-game ban Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott received for his alleged involvement in multiple domestic violence incidents. A district court in Texas had previously granted a temporary restraining order, overturning said suspension. 

This means that, effectively, Elliott will have to serve the six-game ban following the Cowboys' bye this upcoming weekend. 

Then again, it's what too early to get ahead of ourselves, especially when it comes to the fantasy football world. The NFL Players' Association (NFLPA) will now likely file for a temporary restraining order (TRO) and a preliminary injunction with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which would then overturn said suspension once again until oral arguments are heard later. 

What does this exactly mean from af fake football football world? Don't even consider dropping Elliott until said motion is ruled on. Remember, it's the same district court that ruled against the NFL in the entire Tom Brady case. At the very least, this is something to keep an eye on in the week leading up to Dallas' Week 7 game.
