Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott “Bracing for a Short Suspension” as NFL Investigation Concludes

FNTSY’s Scott Engel, The Fantasy Executive Corey Parson, Michael
Florio and Frank Stampfl discuss the potential Fantasy implications
of the expected suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott.
The NFL’s investigation into the charges of domestic violence
against Elliott is coming to an end and it was reported that Elliot
is “bracing for a short suspension.” He received a report from the
NFL on the findings of their investigation and is preparing a
response to the league. Multiple sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter
that Elliott is facing either a one or two game suspension but the
league denied that a final decision on any potential discipline has
been reached. Elliott is expected to submit his response to the
league within the next week.

A 20-year-old woman, identified as Elliott’s girlfriend, accused
him of attacking her while they were in a car, but formal charges
were never filed against him, as investigators cited “conflicting
and inconsistent information.”  However, the NFL has been
conducting a separate investigation, which is close to finished.
The NFL’s baseline suspension for domestic violence is six games
but NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to issue shorter
suspensions at his discretion if he feels mitigating circumstances
apply.
