Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott officially appealed his 6-game suspension on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The appeal will be heard on August 29. That's just 12 days before Dallas kicks off its season against the Giants. It remains plenty possible that this situation isn't resolved by that point. For now, though, fantasy owners need to proceed as if Elliott will be suspended for the first 6 games of the season.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's representatives confirmed in a statement Friday afternoon that he'll appeal his 6-game suspension. "The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it 'cherry picks' so called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence," the statement reads, in part. We've seen these appeals drag out, and Elliott would be allowed to play if it extends into the regular season. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation. For now, though, we're still projecting Elliott to miss the first 6 games of the year.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott has been suspended 6 games for violating the league's personal conduct policy, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. He's expected to appeal the decision. We'll see how long a ruling on that takes, but we need to assume Elliott will miss the first 6 games of the season at this point. That obviously puts a massive dent in his fantasy value. We'll see what happens to his ADP, though. Zeke might still be worth a look if he starts dropping into the 3rd or even late 2nd round. RB Darren McFadden is the odds-on favorite to operate as Dallas' lead back while Elliott sits, although RB Alfred Morris could make a push over the next few weeks. We'll have a full breakdown of the fantasy impact of Elliott's suspension later today. For now, check out our updated projections for the Cowboys backfield.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes the "benchmark" for Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's suspension is 6 games. "Could be fewer," Rapoport adds. 6 games is certainly more than we've been expecting -- and would be harsh for a guy who hasn't actually been charged with any crimes. It sounds like we'll get an official announcement from the league at some point today. If you're drafting in the meantime, consider Elliott no earlier than the late 2nd round.

Pro Football Talk reports that the "prevailing view in league circles" is that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will be suspended for his off-field antics. One league source told PFT that a suspension is "definite." NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, meanwhile, hears that the league's decision could be announced as soon as Friday. We're looking forward to finally getting some clarity on this issue so we can properly value Zeke in fantasy drafts. Stay tuned.
