NGT: Ezekiel Elliot's injunction stayed,

suspension could start after their bye.

The latest motion in Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL Players Association’s legal battle with the NFL has been decided. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans sided with the NFL and granted a stay for the injunction that was delaying Elliott’s six-game suspension, according to the Associated Press.

Elliott could begin to serve the suspension, which was handed down after a year-long investigation into domestic violence allegations made against Elliott in July 2016, after the Cowboys’ Week 6 bye.

Complete BS that the courts get involved in this.
With the Giants out of it I was kinda hoping he'd serve next year.

But any negative news out of Dallas is good news.

For FF purposes, Morris worth stashing or is McFadden the guy?

I was also hoping they'd get it next year. Oh well.

Not to worry! If he starts the suspension right after the bye, he'll back for our game.
FF, there's a theory that McFadden is more similar to Elliot

While Morris will remain as the change of pace/secondary option.

That said, Morris is only one available in my league, so that's who I'm going with.

WHY would you care about them playing at full strength when we just lost pretty much our entire WR corps this past Sunday?
Just what the NFL needs, another player

suspended for abusing women. As if there image hasn't been tarnished enough lately.
This is so stupid now that I read

more and actually think about it, seems like it was orchestrated to be timed this way all along.

suspended a couple weeks before the season, NFLPA appeals, Elliott granted an injunction on the suspension doesn't miss any time, NFL appeals that ruling and their appeal gets kicked around conveniently until he's on a bye week, injunction vacated, NFLPA will re-appeal, and his injunction will probably be re-instated causing the NFL to have to appeal that decision and it will last until after the season.

He's not missing any time. this year at least.
