Appealing academic suspension

Emery's attorney, Don Jackson, said Tuesday that his client will appeal his academic suspension on the basis of hardships suffered during the 2020 pandemic, Brody Miller of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Emery previously appealed the suspension imposed by the NCAA only to be denied, but Jackson plans to submit new information as he attempts to secure a waiver for the junior running back, who fell three credit hours short of eligibility during the 2020-21 academic year. According to Jackson, he hopes to hear a decision on Emery's status before LSU's SEC opener Sept. 25 versus Mississippi State. Emery has already missed LSU's first two games of the season, paving the way for Tyrion Davis-Price to lead the Tigers' ground attack. Emery will remain out for at least LSU's Week 3 matchup with Central Michigan.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2020
There’s some risk in putting this much stock in a player who hasn’t played a down in college, but when it’s a player of Emery’s talent heading into a situation like LSU’s, it’s worth it. Emery is regarded as the second-best back in the 2019 class with a blend of power and explosiveness. The situation couldn’t be better, either; 2018 leading rusher Nick Brossette is gone and Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a middling talent who averaged just 4.5 YPC. Emery is the most talented back on the roster and has a legitimate shot at setting the LSU freshman rushing record.
Emery came to LSU amid much fanfare last year, but the backfield was crowded behind starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who shined as the Tigers roared to the National Title. Emery had just 39 carries for 188 yards as a freshman, though he did score four times on the ground. Edwards-Helaire has moved on to greener pastures, and Lanard Fournette left school, but Chris Curry and Tyrion Davis-Price still remain as competition for Emery. Curry had 38 carries last year, while Davis-Price had 64 and six touchdowns. Perhaps which back emerges as the best pass catcher out of the backfield will go a long way towards determining who sees the majority of the touches, as the aforementioned Edwards-Helaire registered 55 receptions in 2019.
