Elliott suspension fantasy reaction: Pick up Morris, McFadden?

My take on the pending Ezekiel Elliott suspension: It’s still not official. His camp will appeal. There will be lawyers.

Le’Veon Bell’s 2017 season got off to a slow start, but he has returned to high-end fantasy production over the past month. Bell touched the ball 35 times in Week 6, and he has recorded 21-plus touches in five straight games. That includes three games with 31 or more touches. Bell has four touchdowns on the year, though his 5.4 OTD suggests there is room for even more. Fantasy’s No. 5-scoring running back leads the NFL with 134 carries and is locked in as an elite weekly play.

Jerick McKinnon, RB, Minnesota Vikings: Perhaps he’s no fluke! For the second consecutive week, McKinnon garnered exactly 16 carries and six targets and finished with greater than 20 PPR fantasy points, his 24.9 trailing only Ingram’s score from the Sunday 1 p.m. ET game block. He has now managed the three best individual games of his career in the Vikings’ past seven games, which should result in a sizable boost from his 50.6 percent start rate on Sunday in Week 7.

Shortly thereafter, the team announced he was cleared to return. However, the Jaguars decided not to put him back in the game.

Prior to the injury, Fournette had 130 rushing yards on 21 carries, including a 75-yard touchdown to open up the game. The No. 4 overall selection in April has scored at least one touchdown in every game so far in his career.

The injury was a scare for the Jaguars, who rely on Fournette for the majority of the team’s offense. But the team can breathe a sigh of relief because it appears to be not as serious as it first looked.

The Buccaneers drafted TE O.J. Howard during the first round of April’s draft, but that hasn’t stopped Cameron Brate from racing up a whole lot of fantasy points. Brate found the end zone against Arizona on Sunday and has now scored one touchdown in four consecutive games. He has been targeted six-plus times and has 68-plus yards in three straight.
