Ezekiel Elliott has withdrawn his appeal of the district court's ruling that put his suspension into effect. He will serve the full six games and return against Seattle on December 24th. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Elliott's appeal seemed like a long shot at this point anyway, but anyone holding out hope that he would return before Week 16 can let that go. Alfred Morris and Rod Smith should continue to have some fantasy relevance until then. If you own Elliott and are likely to make the playoffs, he's obviously a potential difference-maker in Week 16, and you should hold him on your bench until then.
