  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott not suspended yet    Tue Oct 17, 07:51 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was given his temporary restraining order against the NFL Tuesday, Oct. 17. His pending suspension is now delayed two weeks or until further proceedings.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners can do the dance of joy for a couple of more weeks...then we'll see if Elliott is going to be suspended. It looks like Elliott can play in Week 7 and Week 8, and he's an obvious must start. Those that grabbed Darren McFadden or Alfred Morris off the waiver wire will have to wait.

  Cowboys | Darren McFadden the lead back?    Fri Oct 13, 09:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Darren McFadden is the likely starter if RB Ezekiel Elliott begins serving his suspension, according to Bryan Broaddus of DallasCowboys.com.

Footballguys view: That's the feeling around most Cowboys reporters is that McFadden has been 'saved up' for this possibility. Fantasy owners who can add McFadden should do so via the waiver wire and anticipate that he could post RB2 or at least flex-worthy numbers in the lead role for the Cowboys.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott looking for stay    Fri Oct 13, 07:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers plan to file a rehearing of Elliott's case in front of the 5th Circuit Court of appeals.

Footballguys view: This situation isn't over yet. They could ask the full panel of judges in the 5th United States Court of Appeals in New Orleans to hear the appeal of Elliott's six-game suspension. His lawyers may also ask that Elliott's suspension be stayed until the appeal is heard.

  Cowboys | Ezekiel Elliott's suspension reinstated    Thu Oct 12, 05:00 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension was reinstated by the 5th circuit court of appeals Thursday, Oct. 12.

Footballguys view: This could change again during the bye week, as we know Elliott's lawyers are drafting something as we sit here, but if it doesn't Elliott owners had better have Alfred Morris on their rosters. Rod Smith or Darren McFadden could emerge as a factor, but Morris looked good in limited carries and McFadden has been inactive all year. Smith has never shown anything.
