    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal for his six-game suspension, according to a source.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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott didn't have much of a chance of winning his appeal anyway, and the appeal process may have lasted longer than the rest of the regular season anyway. Alfred Morris will see the majority of carries out of the backfield, but Rod Smith is a PPR sleeper after catching four passes last week while splitting time with Morris.

  • Posted: 11/12/2017 6:53am 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.

    Huddle Up: Alfred Morris will be the starter for Dallas in Elliott's absence and should be viewed as an RB2 in most fantasy formats. RBs Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will also see time in the backfield and should possess some value in deeper seasonal leagues.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 2:35pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: It just will not stop with Elliott's suspension process. We do know that he will not be playing for at least the next four games. In that time, Alfred Morris is the most valuable running back in Dallas, but Darren McFadden and Rod Smith could change that before season's end.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 2:09pm ET

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

    Huddle Up: Elliott is currently suspended for six games and will miss Week 10 unless things change. Alfred Morris likely will be the starting running back for the Cowboys and should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in all league. Rod Smith is also expected to have a role and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 12:38pm 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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is suspended, again. The circus show has ended, hopefully. As has been well documented, Alfred Morris will be given the first opportunity to start, but Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will also be involved. Add any of these three players immediately if available.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 10:56am 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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott's season has been a whirlwind, but it could reach its climax and an end tonight or this weekend. Elliott owners should already have Alfred Morris, Darren McFadden and/or Rod Smith primed and ready to go in case Elliott's stay is lifted. Morris is the better option right away, but one of McFadden or Smith could take over if they play well enough.

  • Posted: 11/8/2017 10:21pm 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.

    Huddle Up: The NFL's preeminent soap opera stretches into its 10th week so who knows what, if anything, will be decided on Thursday. As long as he can play Elliot is a must start in fantasy leagues. If the suspension is reinstated, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden become priority additions.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:31pm 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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott continues to handle a massive workload, and he has topped 25 carries in four straight games, scoring five times in that span. As long as he is allowed to keep playing, he is a must-start RB1.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 7:09am 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.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has amassed nearly 300 rushing yards and five total touchdowns in the last two games, and he's universally regarded as an RB1 in fantasy. The Kansas City Chiefs are a midrange matchup, and they've had some injuries up front. Owners of Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris should relegate them back to the bench.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 4:02pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was denied a request for an emergency stay filed by the NFL Players Association. Elliott now awaits a decision on an appeal by the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

    Huddle Up: The odds are not in Elliott's favor and it looks like he's officially and finally headed for a six-game suspension. As stated earlier, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden are top waiver-wire priorities, but Rod Smith should be involved in the Cowboys' backfield too.

  • Posted: 10/31/2017 2:43pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and the NFL Players Association filed a motion for a temporary injunction of Elliott's suspension pending an appeal in court. If the motion is denied by an appeals court then the NFLPA will go to the Second Circuit court.

    Huddle Up: As Bilbo Baggins would say, the road goes ever on and on. Elliott's off-field situation is akin to that burnt piece of skin at the roof (ceiling?) of your mouth. We just want it to go away. At this point it appears that Elliott is indeed headed for a six-game suspension, so plan accordingly. Those plans should consist of acquiring Darren McFadden and/or Alfred Morris, with Rod Smith posing as a deep sleeper.

  • Posted: 10/30/2017 7:53pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's temporary restraining order was 'dissolved' and motion denied by a judge, putting his six-game suspension back into effect. His side will have 24 hours to file an appeal.

    Huddle Up: At long last, this never-ending saga may finally be reaching its conclusion. Unfortunately, it's with the decision that no owners of Elliott wanted to hear. This will be a hard blow to overcome for fantasy teams, but it was part of the gamble of taking Zeke with a first- or second-round pick. In any event, Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden need to be owned in all formats.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 8:16pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 33 times for 150 yards and two scores and caught one pass for four yards in a 33-19 win over the Washington Redskins in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has hit his stride, rushing for at least 80 yards in five straight games and 100-plus in three straight. A potential suspension is looming, but Elliott is a RB1 whenever he takes the field.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 7:15pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 26 times for a season-best 147 yards and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers and he added a 72-yard touchdown on his only reception. His 10 100-yard games ties former RB Don Perkins for fifth-most in franchise history.

    Huddle Up: If Elliott was bothered any by his off-field legal battle he certainly didn't show it this week. Fantasy owners hope that the six-game suspension that has been hanging over his head goes away until at least next season, as Zeke finally hit his stride in this one. The Cowboys travel to meet the Redskins in Week 8.

  • Posted: 10/19/2017 11:08am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott likely will not reach a settlement with the NFL in terms of his six-game suspension, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has received a temporary restraining order and will play in the next two games but he could serve the suspension later in the season. He should be a No. 1 fantasy running back in all leagues as long as he is allowed to play.

  • Posted: 10/17/2017 4:51pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was given his temporary restraining order against the NFL Tuesday, Oct. 17. His pending suspension is now delayed two weeks or until further proceedings.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is safe for now, again, but this whole situation has been a wobbly teeter totter. Elliott may eventually be suspended in 2017, but it looks like he'll be able to play at least the next two weeks, so make sure he's back in those starting lineups. The Darren McFadden and/or Alfred Morris hype trains are on stand by for a while.

  • Posted: 10/17/2017 12:17pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the NFL will know his fate by the end of Tuesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: One would imagine all parties involved will at least be relieved when the situation comes to a close, either way. If Elliott is indeed suspended then Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris are immediate high-end waiver wire pickups with McFadden possessing more upside in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 6:01pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott seeking a temporary restraining order to postpone his six-game suspension, and lawyers from the NFL Players Association have filed paperwork with the U.S. District Court on behalf of Elliott.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is currently suspended but would be able to play in Week 7 if he receives the restraining order. Owners should continue to monitor the situation and will need other options available in case Elliot is not allowed to play.

  • Posted: 10/13/2017 4:18pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's lawyers plan to file a rehearing of Elliott's case in front of the 5th Circuit Court of appeals. They could ask the full panel of judges in the 5th United States Court of Appeals in New Orleans to hear the appeal of Elliott's six-game suspension. His lawyers may also ask that Elliott's suspension be stayed until the appeal is heard.

    Huddle Up: Elliott's status for Week 7 is still uncertain because of the court case, so owners should follow the situation over the next week. He is a must-start option if he plays, but Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden will be valuable fantasy options if Elliott has to serve his suspension.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 2:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension was reinstated by the 5th circuit court of appeals Thursday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris will likely split touches out of the Cowboys' backfield for the next six weeks. McFadden has more fantasy upside, especially when considering PPR scoring. Morris is more suited for short-yardage and goal-line situations, but McFadden is the priority waiver-wire pickup if available.

  • Posted: 10/9/2017 4:32am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran 29 times for 116 yards in a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: This may be the last you see of Elliott for a while, pending a ruling on his six-game suspension. If this is it, Elliott went out with a strong performance. Be prepared to shelve him anyway for the coming week as it is a bye. Elliott remains a strong RB1 candidate as long as he is on the field.

  • Posted: 10/6/2017 2:24pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) practiced in full Friday, Oct. 6, and he was removed from the injury report for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is a safe play for Sunday's game against the Pack. Enjoy him, as next week there is a bye and then fantasy owners will have to play the waiting game with his playing status to be determined by a three-judge panel, perhaps during the bye week.

  • Posted: 10/5/2017 3:53pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) fully participated in practice Thursday, Oct. 5.

    Huddle Up: Elliott should receive his normal workload against the Green Bay Packers and will be a No. 1 running back in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/4/2017 4:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (chest) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Oct. 4.

    Huddle Up: Elliott should be ready to play as long as his suspension is not reinstated before the game. He has rushed for at least 80 yards and one touchdown in each of the last two games and should be a No. 1 running back against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 10/3/2017 11:36am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Ezekiel Elliott will have his playing status determined soon by a three-judge panel from the 5th United States Circuit Court of Appeal. There is no official timeline, although a decision might come as early as this week and is expected to be made by next week when the team has a bye.

    Huddle Up: Elliott's status for Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers is not in question, but his status for Week 7 and beyond remains rather murky. He is coming off his biggest fantasy outing of the season against the Rams and will look to continue against the Pack, a team allowing 111.0 yards per game on the ground.

  • Posted: 10/1/2017 5:21pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 21 times for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams and he added four receptions for 54 yards and a score on five targets.

    Huddle Up: This is the Zeke fantasy owners have been waiting for, as it was truly his first big game of the season after a couple of duds. He'll look to keep it going in the right direction in Week 5 when the Packers pay a visit.

  • Posted: 9/25/2017 10:34pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott registered 22 rushes for 80 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 3 win Monday, Sept. 25, against the Arizona Cardinals. He also added three receptions for 14 yards.

    Huddle Up: It was the first rushing touchdown of the campaign for the former Ohio State Buckeye. Elliott's numbers through the first three games leave a little bit to be desired, but this was a nice bounce-back effort following last week's disastrous showing in Denver. He'll continue to be a strong RB1 option no matter what defense he's opposing.

  • Posted: 9/22/2017 5:09pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been cleared to play in the next two games after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th District set a Oct. 2 court date for the case involving his six-game suspension.

    Huddle Up: Elliott was limited to eight yards against the Denver Broncos last week and will be facing an Arizona Cardinals rush defense that ranks in the top-10 in the NFL. Elliott should have more success in Week 3 and can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy running back for owners this week.

  • Posted: 9/18/2017 10:26am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension remains on hold after the NFL's request for a stay in the case was denied Monday, Sept. 18.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is expected to play against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, and he's coming off a rough game. It's a tough matchup, but he remains a high-end RB1 option.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 8:45pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott ran nine times for just eight yards in Week 2 against the Denver Broncos and he added four receptions for 14 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Elliott was bottled up by the sturdy Denver defense, with his longest run going for just five yards. He'll try to get on track in Week 3 in Arizona under the lights on Monday night.

  • Posted: 9/16/2017 7:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott can set an NFL record against the Denver Broncos in Week 2 by rushing for at least 80 yards in his 16th straight game.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has as much upside as any back in the league, but fantasy owners can certainly appreciate the consistency, as well. Pencil him in for another week of RB1 production against the Broncos.

  • Posted: 9/13/2017 8:43am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is likely to play in Week 2, according to NFL executive vice president of communications Joe Lockhart.

    Huddle Up: Zeke will face the Denver Broncos in Week 2, and they were a midrange defense against the position in Week 1. He remains an elite option at the position regardless of scoring system.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 6:52am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's injunction ruling was appealed by the NFL Monday, Sept. 11, to the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.

    Huddle Up: The Cowboys will face the Denver Broncos in Week 2, and Zeke is expected to be on the field. Elliott had 24 carries for 104 yards and five catches for 36 yards in Week 1 and is an RB1 option in Week 2.

  • Posted: 9/10/2017 10:03pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed 24 times for 104 yards in Week 1 against the Giants and he added five receptions for 36 yards.

    Huddle Up: Elliott's outlook brightened late last week when a judge granted a temporary restraining order to keep allowing him to play with a six-game suspension from the NFL looming. The fight is expected to continue, but for now it appears he'll continue to play and be an obvious must-start fantasy option.

  • Posted: 9/8/2017 3:27pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order by a Texas judge on Friday, Sept. 8.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is now eligible to continue playing, and it's possible that he might be able to play for the remainder of the season before a lengthy court battle ensues in the offseason, or even into 2018. It's a situation similar to that of Tom Brady and 'Deflategate', so do not expect this to be the last you hear of it. This is outstanding news for fantasy owners who rolled the dice on Elliott.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 5:41pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott had his appeal for a six-game suspension denied by arbitrator Harold Henderson on Tuesday, Sept. 5, upholding the league's original ruling.

    Huddle Up: Before Elliott's owners go into a panic and Darren McFadden's owners jump for joy, we must first find out whether the courts will accept the temporary restraining order motion from Elliott's legal team to delay the suspension. Henderson's finding pretty much means Elliott will now likely serve either zero (if the courts intervene) or six (if they don't) games and removes the possibility of him getting away with a two- or three-game absence. At least for now, owners probably need to view him as a mid-third round pick at best.

  • Posted: 9/5/2017 10:30am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is expected to learn his immediate fate soon, as arbitrator Harold Henderson has informed the NFL and NFL Players Association that he'll rule on Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension by the close of business Tuesday, Sept. 5.

    Huddle Up: It is really anyone's guess at this point how this thing will turn out. A reduction of the suspension seems the most likely outcome, but both sides also seem more than willing to take this to court if they don't get the decision they want. Stay tuned.

  • Posted: 8/31/2017 11:32pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and the NFLPA filed a petition to vacate the eventual arbitration ruling in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas on Thursday, Aug. 31. The lawsuit was filed ahead of the announced outcome of the arbitration case headed by Harold Henderson, the results of which are expected early next week, and seek to overturn any punishment handed down by the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Oh boy. It's officially go time. The NFLPA and Elliott launched a preemptive strike against the NFL's arbitration ruling, and it's starting to look like we could have a rehash of the Tom Brady case -- as a refresher, Brady was originally suspended the first four games of the 2015 season before a judge vacated the punishment and Brady played the entire season and eventually served the suspension in 2016. No doubt the NFL will react swiftly, but it's anyone's guess how long the process will drag out and what it'll mean short and long term for Elliott's status. With the waters muddier than ever, Elliott is an early-round lottery ticket that carries high risk and high rewards.

  • Posted: 8/31/2017 10:50am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing has concluded and a decision could be made by Monday, Sept. 4, depending on the appeals officer, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: There have been recent swirlings that Elliott's suspension could be reduced. If it is reduced, even by a game, Elliott can be ticked up on draft boards. As it stands, he's a low-end RB1 to high-end RB2, although you may need to reach in order to secure his services.

  • Posted: 8/31/2017 6:54am ET

    Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has a real chance of having his six-game suspension reduced, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: Elliott's draft stock plummeted upon the announcement, but the suspension could be delayed and/or reduced. If you're drafting in the top few picks of your draft, he may be an option when your turn comes back around in the second round.

  • Posted: 8/29/2017 8:01pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing for his six-game suspension will be resume Thursday, Aug. 31, as one of the key witnesses won't be available until then, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

    Huddle Up: And with that, thousands of current and future fantasy owners of Elliott - not to mention the Cowboys - are left hanging in the wind for at least another 24 hours. Considering both sides appear ready to dig their heels in, owners need to be prepared for the possibility that Elliott may need serve a suspension sometime after the first six weeks of the season or perhaps not at all.

  • Posted: 8/29/2017 2:56pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's appeal hearing will at least carry over into Wednesday, Aug. 30, with 'no end in sight,' according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: It's becoming more and more likely that Elliott will be available to play in Week 1 if the appeal process is not wrapped up soon. Elliott does face a long suspension, though, and merits low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 valuation.

  • Posted: 8/24/2017 8:42am ET

    Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott could play in the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 26, as head coach Jason Garrett is leaning toward playing him. It would be his first dosage of action this preseason.

    Huddle Up: Elliott is suspended for the first six games of the season, and his appeal is to be heard Tuesday. There are instances where you can take him as an RB2, but he's essentially out for the first half of the fantasy season. Darren McFadden is a great RB3 if the suspension is upheld.

  • Posted: 8/20/2017 11:34am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott might be available for 'a few snaps' in the team's third preseason game versus the Oakland Raiders on Saturday, Aug. 26, according to team owner Jerry Jones.

    Huddle Up: Elliott has yet to play this preseason and almost certainly will play in the exhibition finale, meaning he could go until late October before he sees a snap in a live game if his six-game suspension is upheld, so it might be a good idea to have him get hit once or twice. Darren McFadden figures to get the bulk of the work in the backfield for however long Elliott is sidelined.

  • Posted: 8/15/2017 2:19pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has officially appealed his six-game suspension, according to a source. A hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of the appeal.

    Huddle Up: This appeal process could take some time, but for now Elliott will miss the Cowboys' first six games of the 2017 season. Darren McFadden makes for a suitable fantasy flex at the least if the suspension holds.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 12:44pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott and his representatives released a statement announcing their intentions to appeal the six-game suspension handed to him Friday, Aug. 11 for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

    Huddle Up: As it stands currently, Elliott is expected to be suspended until Week 8 - an Oct. 29 game against the Washington Redskins. Speculating about how much his suspension could be reduced at this point would be foolish, but there is definitely a chance of it happening. Risk-taking owners can use this opportunity to get Elliott on the cheap, as even a two-game reduction would make it more palatable for him to go on the second round of fantasy drafts. Expect plenty more updates in the coming days and weeks.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 9:13am ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended six games for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy, according to a source. Elliott is expected to file an appeal and has three business days to do so, and a hearing must be scheduled within 10 days of receipt of the notice, according to Article 46 of the collective bargaining agreement.

    Huddle Up: With the Cowboys' bye landing on Week 6, Elliott will not unable to play until Week 8 against the Washington Redskins, pending the appeal. For fantasy football purposes, Elliott should now drop out of the first round of draft and perhaps into the third round or later, while backup Darren McFadden could be considered a low-end RB1 for however long Elliott must sit out should his suspension be reduced.

  • Posted: 8/11/2017 6:29am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott is expected to be suspended, as one league source characterized the suspension as 'definite.' NFL Network's Jane Slater has also heard the length is closer to the six-game benchmark.

    Huddle Up: A decision could come Friday, Aug. 11, or it could trickle into next week. There is also an appeals process, which as we learned with Tom Brady the last two years, could prolong the process. A four-to-six-game ban would heavily diminish Elliott's fantasy stock and promote Darren McFadden to potentially an RB3. Zeke would be an RB2 commodity, and you'd need to secure a safe RB3 to use in his place in the meantime.

  • Posted: 8/10/2017 2:13pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott could find out whether or not he is disciplined by the NFL as early as Friday, Aug. 11, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: If he is suspended, it probably won't be for very long. Those who draft, or have already drafted, Elliott may want to consider selecting Darren McFadden if a suspension is given. Elliott remains a top-tier RB1 no matter the decision.

  • Posted: 8/1/2017 7:07pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will continue to remain the focus of the offense, but it might come in different ways, according to QB Dak Prescott. 'Zeke can get more catches this year without him playing more plays. I think just his ability with the ball in his hands is valuable to this offense. So in the passing game, (if) the defense is giving us soft coverage, get it to him and let him do what's best,' Prescott said.

    Huddle Up: With the specter of Elliott getting suspended hanging over his head, owners could hit it big if they are willing to roll the dice on him. Obviously, if he can improve on his 32-catch rookie season, it increases his chances that much more of hanging with David Johnson and Le'Veon Bell in the elite tier of running backs. Taking him is not for the faint of heart, but the payoff of taking him at No. 6 overall or later could be huge.
