Player Notes
Nov 15 5:13pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal for his six-game suspension, according to a source. Elliott will serve the suspension and return to the Cowboys against the Seattle Seahawks Dec. 24.

Nov 15 5:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has officially withdrawn his appeal and will serve his full six-game suspension. That means there will be no more temporary stays or restraining orders: the drama is over. Elliott and the NFL had a "will he or won't he?" saga going for the majority of this season, but it seems Elliott has caved and accepted that he had no further recourse. He'll serve his six games, and in the meantime Alfred Morris and Rod Smith will work in the Dallas backfield. "Zeke" will play his next game in Week 16 against the Seahawks.

Nov 12 10:03am ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has reportedly left the country in order to refocus and train in an undisclosed location. He will miss the next four games and could wind up serving all six games of his suspension before returning to action Dec. 24, although he has an expedited appeal in the Second Circuit court scheduled for Dec. 1.

Nov 9 10:13pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Rod Smith is expected to receive touches while RB Ezekiel Elliott is suspended, and running backs coach Gary Brown believes Smith can be an every-down back in the NFL.

Nov 9 5:43pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has an expedited appeal scheduled Friday, December 1 in the Second Circuit court.

Nov 9 5:20pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's expedited appeal hearing in the Second Circuit Court has been set for Dec. 1. That date means there is a chance Elliott's suspension could be delayed or cancelled before he has served the full six weeks. Still, it would be a fast process for the entire thing to be completed before the six weeks of the suspension are up. Elliott looks like he's lost this one, at least for now, and he'll be sitting out Week 10.

Nov 9 5:13pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Nov 9 3:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will have his six-game suspension start on Sunday, as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has denied Ezekiel Elliott's motion for an injunction. Elliott's suspension has been on and off all season, so fantasy owners have to expect some sort of legal maneuvering to get Elliott on the field against the Falcons on Sunday. If Elliott does not play against Atlanta, expect Alfred Morris to start and be a low-end RB2/flex play.

Nov 9 3:43pm ET

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's stay on his pending suspension was lifted Thursday, Nov. 6. He will begin serving his six-game suspension this week. Thus, he will not be able to return until Week 16.

Nov 9 3:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's court hearing was over after just 30 minutes on Thursday. There was no decision made, and reportedly there was no timeline set for a decision to be made either. It means that Elliott will play this Sunday and this whole process could drag into even more weeks, keeping Elliott on the field. It's a good thing for Elliott's owners, and yet another delay for those holding onto Alfred Morris or Darren McFadden.

Nov 9 2:03pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's impending suspension would begin immediately if/when a stay on the suspension is lifted, according to NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart. The decision on the timing of the suspension is in the hands of the court.

Nov 9 1:33am ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will not practice Thursday, Nov. 9, as he'll attend his appeal hearing in New York instead. Barring an immediate ruling he's expected back at practice Friday, Nov. 10.

Nov 8 11:50am ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is one of the top-three options at running back in fantasy this week. Dallas travels to Atlanta to take on the Falcons. Elliott has seven touchdowns in his past six games, and he's averaging just over 138 yards from scrimmage per game. There remains the chance that the court goes through the process faster than expected and decides against Elliott, keeping him suspended and forcing him to miss the game, but that outcome is looking less and less likely as the week goes on. As long as he's allowed to play, Elliott will be a top-tier option at running back.

Nov 6 2:33pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's hearing with the Second Circuit Court of Appeals is scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Per the Dallas Morning News ' Kate Hairopoulos‏, Elliott can practice and play with the Cowboys until the three-judge committee rules since the stay he received last week did not have an end date.

Nov 6 1:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is looking likely to play in Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons. Elliott's most recent temporary stay, which was granted last week, does not contain an end date. That means he will remain eligible to play until the Second Circuit Court of Appeals hands down a ruling. The hearing is scheduled to begin on Thursday afternoon, with sources saying it is unlikely they will be ready to rule on the case in time for "Zeke" to miss Sunday's contest. While nothing is anything close to a sure thing in this whole saga, Elliott is looking much more likely than not to be on the field for Week 10.

Nov 5 11:43pm ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott finished with 27 carries for 93 yards and a touchdown in a 28-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.

Nov 5 9:20pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott ran the ball 27 times for 93 yards and a touchdown on Sunday's win against Kansas City. Elliott scored his ninth touchdown of the season in his eighth game. He did not see any targets in the passing game. Elliott is a no-brainer RB1 every time he is on the field, but Week 10 is looking like another back-and-forth between suspended and not suspended for "Zeke" and the Cowboys. Zeke's Schrodinger's Suspension Saga continues.

Nov 5 11:50am ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott "could play for several months" if he wins his injunction with the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports . Elliott is playing Sunday on a temporary stay of his suspension and there is expected to be a ruling on his injunction this week. This ruling should provide more clarity on his status and it is possible Elliott will finish out the year if he wins his next court battle. Look at the Elliott situation as a week-by-week, "will he/won't he play" circumstance.

Nov 3 12:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett confirmed that running back Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) will practice on Friday and will be on the field as the starting running back for Sunday's game. The Cowboys spent most of the week thinking their backfield would consist of some mix of Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden, and Rod Smith, but Elliott had another delay granted to his suspension and will be able to play in Week 9. It's an excellent matchup for "Zeke" against a suddenly-struggling Chiefs run defense. He's an RB1, as he is any time he takes the field.

Nov 3 10:23am ET

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott received a stay from the 2nd Circuit of Appeals Friday, Nov. 3, which makes him eligible to play in Week 9.
