Welcome back to Todd Gurley and Leonard Fournette, but Ezekiel Elliott gets his suspension reinstated.

Well, here we go again. Ezekiel Elliott had his temporary injunction rejected by the courts. His suspension will start again this week. Maybe the NFLPA has another trick up its sleeve, but the suspension is basically inevitable. The longer he prolongs it, the more likely it is he will be gone for the fantasy playoffs.

Stiil, the top of the fantasy running backs board is back and kicking. Le'Veon Bell is missing this week. Also missing, the bevy of Patriots running backs. The ones who never give you a hint about who might be relevant this week and who disappears.

Take a look at this week's fantasy running backs.
