2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: DECISION IMMINENT IN TERMS OF EZEKIEL ELLIOTT SUSPENSION

Alarms began to go off when it was revealed early Friday that the Dallas Cowboys had brought in free agent running back Denard Robinson for a workout.  Already employing Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden as backups to starter Ezekiel Elliott, the thinking went that the Cowboys were preparing for the much-reported imminent suspension that is coming the latter's way.  Elliott himself has accepted that a suspension is on the way according to reports and the recent bar fight to go on top of the previous domestic violence incident could mean the term could go as high as six games.  Thus first rounds in early fantasy football drafts are in chaos over Elliott's suspension and like with Le'Veon Bell a year ago, the talent simply can't win out in terms of being a top three pick when games missed are already guaranteed.  I already have stated that Elliott is now well behind both Bell and David Johnson in the running back hierarchy and you can make the case he deserves to go behind LeSean McCoy, DeMarco Murray, and Jay Ajayi also.  Drop Elliott down to late first round status at the very least.
