    Default Ezekiel Elliott's suspension is back

    Six-game suspension.

    Federal appeals court ruled against him.

    The 2-3 Cowboys are on the road in San Francisco and Washington D.C. in Weeks 7 and 8 following this week's bye week.

    The Dallas defense over the past two weeks has allowed opponents to score on a combined 14 of 18 possessions, not counting an end-of-the-game kneel down by the Rams).

    jones caved in on the players ( the way some players looked at it ) . Will the players cave in on the season without Elliott ?

    Great to hear this. In Week 7 we face the Fantasy team that owns him so we won't have to face Zeke
    The mind is a terrible thing to waste unless we are talking about the MORONS who post at Covers where the collective Sports Gambling IQ for the ENTIRE site is.................4!!! and even that might be too high

    That shocks me. I own Zeke in both of my leagues and picked up Morris two weeks ago in case this happened. But who knows, maybe they end up featuring McFadden instead and I'm the idiot.

    I still think Zeke's legal team and the NFLPA will get this held up in court for the remainder of this year, and he won't serve the suspension until next year, ala Brady. This isn't over.

    God, you're stupid. I do not have the time to educate you. Zeke will serve the 6 game suspension this year.

    Enlighten me Chucky. I'm not a legal scholar, but I do know how to read betting rules on websites, unlike you.
    I already collected on a pre season prop that Zeke would play in one of the 1st 6 games, when the first "suspension" was announced. If a book offers a similar prop now, I'll bet it again.

    Here’s the order on which NFL, NFLPA disagree

    The disagreement between the NFL and the NFL Players Association in the Ezekiel Elliott case has extended to the interpretation of a fairly basic court order.
    The union believes that the latest order from Judge Amos Mazzant preserves the injunction that allows Elliott to play. The league believes that it does not.
    Here’s the language of the order: “On October 12, 2017, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion on the National Football League and National Football League Management Council’s appeal of the Court’s preliminary injunction in the above-styled cause of action. The Fifth Circuit vacated the Court’s preliminary injunction and remanded the case with instructions to dismiss the case. On October 13, 2017, the mandate issued forthwith. The National Football League Players Association, on its own behalf and on behalf of Ezekiel Elliott (‘NFLPA’) filed a motion to recall the mandate. The NFLPA indicated that it intends to file a petition for rehearing and would suffer prejudice if the mandate is not recalled. The Court defers dismissing the case pursuant to the mandate until the
    Fifth Circuit decides the NFLPA’s motion for recall, unless otherwise instructed.”
    Put simply, Judge Mazzant has declined to dismiss the case, despite a direction from the Fifth Circuit to do so. Although the order doesn’t state that the injunction has been reinstated (in what would be clear and direct defiance of the Fifth Circuit), the refusal to dismiss the case constitutes an act of defiance, technically. And if the Fifth Circuit doesn’t rule in the next few days on the motion to recall the mandate (which would then give Elliott a chance to pursue his right to file a petition for rehearing), Judge Mazzant surely will be asked to take his refusal to dismiss the case to its next logical step and reiterate that the injunction blocks the suspension until the Fifth Circuit acts on the motion to recall the mandate.
    Surely, it won’t come to that. The Fifth Circuit undoubtedly is aware of the fact that the Cowboys play next Sunday. The Fifth Circuit should know that the team’s work week commences in earnest on Wednesday. Under the circumstances (including the district judge’s refusal to dismiss the case despite the mandate to do so), it would be a shock if the Fifth Circuit doesn’t provide more clarity on Monday or Tuesday.

    I think Morris will just vulture all of mcfaddens TD’s.

    As predicted, Zeke will play for at least the next couple of weeks. Damn, why couldn't some Book have been as dumb as Chuck and put up a prop for it:

    As a Zeke fantasy owner I don't like this. He might now be suspended during the fantasy playoffs instead.

    When are fantasy playoffs? I doubt it anyway. I suspect this plays out like Brady and gets resolved one way or the other next year, after all the court mechanizations.

    I hope you're right Guesser. Fantasy playoffs start week 14.
