Here is the NFL's reaction to Ezekiel Elliott being granted a temporary restraining order that will allow him to play Sunday at San Francisco: "We are confident our arguments will prevail in court when they are taken up again later this month."

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

You might've noticed in my Week 7 rankings that I've still got Ezekiel Elliott ranked (No. 2 in PPR), because his situation is somewhat unclear. If I assume he's ineligible to play Sunday, I'd slot Alfred Morris as my RB26 (between James White and Jonathan Stewart) and Darren McFadden my RB34 (between Mike Gillislee and Isaiah Crowell).
