The league wasn’t happy with Elliott’s plan to discredit his accuser in his appeal or the NFLPA’s role in it. While the record shows that the woman was dishonest at times, shifting blame to a victim is “shameful,” in the words of NFL Executive Vice President of Communications Joe Lockhart.
“I don’t have anything to say about any of the appeal or anything about that issue, today,” Jones said via the team’s website. “But certainly I’ll be visiting with you guys about it in the future. Right now, today, is just not the time for me to talk about it.”
Elliott finally spoke to the media after his injunction was granted and his Cowboys beat the New York Giants in the team’s season opener. He said the injunction is a relief.
Robby Anderson, WR. New York Jets: He set a new career high with 22.5 PPR fantasy points, catching all six of his targets in the process. Anderson was started in 16.3 percent of ESPN leagues, his highest rate in any of his 24 career games. With matchups against the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers the next two weeks, Anderson could have upcoming WR3 value.
After breaking onto the NFL scene with six touchdowns during his first three games, Kareem Hunt (3.5 OTD) has failed to find the end zone even once during his past five outings. Despite the scoring drought, Hunt’s OTD is incredibly still well below his touchdown total. Hunt has carried the ball only three times inside the opponent’s 5-yard line and has been targeted twice while inside the opponent’s 15-yard line.
The last year of completely shameless tanking. Back in September, the NBA’s Board of Governors voted to tweak the draft lottery odds so that the three worst teams would have the same chance to receive the top pick in the draft. In other words, the league was trying to cut down on teams resting players and playing marginal talents in hopes of accumulating losses in a race to the absolute bottom.
