2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL ISSUES: EZEKIEL ELLIOTT IN PLAY FOR CHAMPIONSHIP GAME

After months of exhausting and very annoying appeals when it came to the six-game suspension of Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for domestic violence, the decision was made by the player himself on Wednesday to no longer challenge the case in court.  That means Elliott will miss the next five games for Dallas which wipes him out for all but Week 16 in terms of fantasy football.  Of course Elliott's owners need to continue holding him in hoping they get the chance to throw him back out there against Seattle in Week 16 but making a play for him in a trade is also an interesting idea as well.  Consider a scenario where the Elliott owner is in pure panic mode right now in trying to keep their team afloat and they get a low-ball offer of let's say Orleans Darkwa or Duke Johnson for him.  If you are on the border of the playoff picture in your league, you do that deal in playing for tomorrow and not weeks from now.  So if you are a team in good playoff standing, making a play for Elliott is a smart move and could net you a first-round talent when the stakes are the highest.  Yes there should be some rust and Seattle's defense is no picnic but the bottom line is that Elliott will be a factor once again in a few weeks.  Try and get your hands on him before then.
