Schefter: Elliott 'ready for a long battle'
12 August 2017
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Ezekiel Elliott is "ready for a long battle" regarding his six-game suspension.
Elliott has already released a statement saying he will appeal the decision, but Schefter reports that "might just be [the] first step in an ongoing ordeal," suggesting Zeke is willing to go to court to fight the ban. Elliott is worth a pick late in the second round even with the suspension looming, but it remains possible he either serves a lesser ban this year or is able to postpone the suspension the entire season. Like Le'Veon Bell last year, Elliott will likely end up a value when it is all said and done.
