2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 1 ISSUES: WHAT IS NEXT FOR EZEKIEL ELLIOTT

The never-ending drama that is the legal/playing status of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has been the main topic of the NFL summer and it shows no signs of letting up after arbitrator Harold Henderson decided to completely hold up the league's 6-game suspension for a domestic violence incident(s).  The fact the ruling came late in the day Tuesday means that Elliott can in fact play in Week 1 which is a small victory for his fantasy football owners but this is far from over on many fronts.  With the suspension upheld, Elliott is now expected to get an stay/injunction that would allow him to play in 2017 and not miss a single game but that is not a guarantee either.  Also the chance of Elliott succeeding in court are slim to none as Tom Brady could tell you due to the fact the NFL and NFLPA AGREED on the penalty phase of the collective bargaining agreement which the judicial system will respect.  That is why Brady lost in court and why Elliott will meet the same fate eventually.  So in terms of fantasy football, again Elliott plays in Week 1 and if the injunction in granted, the rest of 2017 as well.  This whole thing is one big mess however and growing into a big joke for the player/league.
