Big news: #Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is withdrawing his appeal, his agents Rocky Arceneaux and Frank Salzano tell me. Elliott will serve his full 6-game suspension.
Related players: Alfred Morris, Rod Smith, Darren McFadden
He will return on December 24th, a.k.a. Week 16. Owners who look good for the playoffs should hold onto him for a possible start. In the meantime, it looks like Alfred Morris and Rod Smith will split the work in the Dallas backfield.

Week 9 vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Ezekiel Elliot has another life at least for one more week. The courts have ruled he can play this Sunday which means his fantasy owner can rejoice. Elliott was a beast in the rain against Washington last week with 33 carries for 154 yards and 2 touchdowns. It was his third straight 100-yard rushing game and he has scored 6 touchdowns in the last five games.
Elliot will face the Chiefs in Week 9 and expect the Cowboys to use him a lot again. He should get 25+ touches which means more yardage and touchdowns against a defense ranked 11th in aFPA to running backs.
Start Elliott as the No. 1 fantasy running back this week. He has been running like every game is his last and that could be the case temporarily. Eventually, the suspension will stick and then other options will be considered.
