Where To Take Ezekiel Elliott In Your Fantasy Draft

Here's when to take Ezekiel Elliott in your fantasy draft.

Ezekiel Elliott was an easy top 10 pick in fantasy football drafts prior to his suspension news. Where should the Dallas Cowboys running back be taken now that he's suspended for the season's first six games?

Opinions are varying.

Elliott is appealing his suspension and some think it'll get reduced to four games, meaning he'll miss 25 percent of the season (roughly 30 percent of most fantasy leagues).

There are some experts who think Elliott is now a third or fourth round player, but most seem to agree that the star running back is now a potential mid-to-late second round pick.

Elliott is listed as the No. 10 or No. 11 RB on most updated fantasy boards and a top 30 player overall.

It's still a risky pick, though, but one that could potentially pay off in a big way if you can tread water without him in the first couple of weeks.
