That is very fantasy relevant and as reported by ESPN through Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, McFadden is expected to start in Ezekiel Elliott's (suspension) absence for the first six games of the regular season.

Jones said the Cowboys won't adjust their plan for when Elliott plays in the preseason because of the suspension.

Yahoo's Charles Robinson reported that Elliott "is willing to take this whole suspension appeal through courts if he has to".

Garrett said Elliott has not let the investigation affect him so far in training camp and believes he will continue to work hard going forward. In announcing the suspension under the NFL's personal conduct policy, the league said its investigation was based on photographs, text messages and other electronic evidence.

"I am both surprised and disappointed by the NFL's decision today, and I strongly disagree with the League's findings", Elliott said in his statement, which was posted to social media. But while Jones hasn't spoken publicly since Elliott was suspended, his son took a more measured approach.

The ruling under the NFL's personal conduct policy came despite prosecutors in Columbus, Ohio, deciding almost a year ago not to pursue the case in the city where Elliott starred for Ohio State.

Garrett refused to comment on whether he thought Elliott might win his appeal and be available for the season opener against the New York Giants. Certainly, Jason Garrett will have a headache in adjusting his system with his star back but expect the Cowboys to run more pass plays to pile up Prescott's fantasy points and add catches to the likes of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. If the suspension holds up, Elliott wouldn't be eligible to play in the regular season until October 29 when the Cowboys play the Washington Redskins. Here are three players who could really help the team in 2017, but will need to start proving it on Saturday.

The league also noted an incident during a St. Patrick's Day parade in Dallas this year, when Elliott pulled down a woman's shirt, exposing and touching her breast.

"We suspected that something like this might happen", Garrett said following the Cowboys 13-10 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at the Los Angeles Coliseum.

Overall, Rush was good on nine of his 11 attempts, totaling 104 passing yards for a 136.4 passer rating. In 2015 in 10 games, he was able to put up a stat line of 1,089 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns.

"While this is a serious matter, it by no means suggests a belief that you can not have a long and productive career in the National Football League", the letter said.
