Cowboys HC Jason Garrett on Wednesday delivered a different message than owner/GM Jerry Jones seemed to earlier in the week. “Anybody who is healthy is going to play in this game,” Garrett said, per the team website. “If they’re not healthy, they won’t play in the game. If there’s a young guy who’s worthy of an opportunity, who’s earned that opportunity, he’ll get a chance to play in the ball game — and you’ll see that all throughout our roster. But we’re not just going to give a guy an opportunity because he’s young.” This situation is a prime example of why you should try to end your full-season fantasy league in Week 16. But if you're still going, you're probably going to want to play your primary Cowboys -- assuming they make sense.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones suggested on Tuesday that his team might limit some starters and get younger players more snaps in this weekend's finale against the Eagles. "We should just see how the game goes, but we've got younger guys ... we have a need for them," Jones said. "We need to better understand their skills. But we'll just see how it goes." QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR Dez Bryant and TE Jason Witten are all candidates to play less than usual this weekend.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that RB Ezekiel Elliott is withdrawing his appeal and serving his 6-game suspension. That will return him for the Week 16 game against the Seahawks. Elliott is obviously droppable in most leagues, but you'll have to decide whether it makes sense to stash him for that Week 16 clash. In the meantime, Alfred Morris looks like the lead fill-in. We'll see if that changes after a sluggish 1st game of rushing without Elliott, though.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's next legal hearing is scheduled for December 1. His team will appeal the Second Circuit Court's decision not to grant Elliott an injunction. Winning that would allow him back on the field. But that's considered a long shot -- and it's unclear how long it'll even take the court to make a decision. All signs point to Elliott remaining suspended through Week 15.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's motion for an injunction has been denied, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. So his 6-game suspension is on again. At least for now. There are still other avenues Zeke can take to delay this suspension, but they're all considered long shots. It looks like he'll miss Weeks 10 through 15. That'd put him back on the field for Fantasy Championship Week. Alfred Morris is the best bet for carries in Dallas for now, but Darren McFadden and Rod Smith will also be involved.

Injury Predictor

After battling a sore hamstring during preseason last year, Elliot didn’t miss a regular game due to injury. The ROY rolled up nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage on 354 touches. The last major injury he had was a broken left wrist prior to his final year at Ohio State in 2015. He had surgery to repair the wrist, and did not miss a game. Zeke’s young, productive, and durable.
