Zeke Suspended Six Games

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended six games by the NFL for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. What does this mean for his fantasy prospects?
  NFL news happens every day of the year. The fictional character Gordon Gekko from the film Wall Street, famously portrayed by screen legend Michael Douglas, had a great quote that applies to fantasy football: “The most valuable commodity I know of is information.” Elliott finished last season with 354 touches, 1,994 total yards, and 16 touchdowns. He produced 0.83 fantasy points per touch which ranked sixth among RBs who played a minimum of 350 snaps. Elliott played 716 offensive snaps and touched the football on 51 percent of them. He leveraged this usage, rare athletic ability, and the effectiveness of the Cowboys offensive line to finishing as the fantasy RB2 in most formats. Off the field behavior, including an incident at a Saint Patrick’s Day parade, a woman’s claim of domestic violence, the arrest of someone in his entourage attempting to carry a firearm into a bar in Columbus, and his infamous visit to Herban Legends in Seattle, Washington, has been the problem. It was only a matter of time before Elliott’s caught up with him and the hammer came down today from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. This article will share three things you should know about Elliott and his situation before heading into drafts this summer.
