Player Notes
Nov 20 11:30am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard is not on the fantasy radar in Week 12. The Cowboys will be on the road facing the New England Patriots and the Patriots elite defense could give the Cowboys offense a hard time. With the team not expected to be able to move the ball particularly well, backup Tony Pollard won't be on the field very often. He was able to show some burst and score a touchdown last week, but starter Ezekiel Elliott is an almost every-down back and Pollard's use has been too inconsistent to rely on as a fantasy starter. He remains a league-winning handcuff, but is not a fantasy option while he remains second on the depth chart.

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard only touched the ball six times on Sunday, but he did the most with his opportunities. Pollard ran the ball twice for 12 yards and caught all four of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown. Pollard's touchdown came on a 21-yard pass from Dak Prescott in the first quarter. Pollard showed explosiveness and proved why he has league-winning upside as a handcuff. All fantasy managers rostering Ezekiel Elliott should do anything they can to acquire Pollard before their league's trade deadline.

Nov 13 12:40pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard remains one of the league's best handcuffs, but he is not a starting option despite that excellent upside. Pollard has received just four carries in the past two games and is firmly behind three-down back Ezekiel Elliott. The Detroit Lions Defense is generous to opposing running backs, but that will benefit starter Elliott much more than Pollard. Pollard needs to be held in all formats, but shouldn't be in a starting lineup at this point.

From RotoBaller

Nov 11 12:50am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard only touched the ball once in a Week 10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, running the ball for a four yard loss. The Vikings planned their defense around shutting down the Dallas running game, and they did an excellent job at that, limiting starter Ezekiel Elliott to just 47 yards on 20 carries. Pollard remains one of the league's best handcuffs, but his value is fully dependent on Elliott's playing time.

From RotoBaller

Nov 6 11:30am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard won't be a fantasy option when the Cowboys face off against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday Night Football. Pollard did a lot with a few touches in Week 9 against the New York Giants, but that was in an easy win for Dallas. The Vikings post a much more serious defensive threat, and Pollard figures to be somewhat less involved in what should be a much closer game.

From RotoBaller

Nov 4 11:40pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard touched the ball four times in a Week 9 win over the New York Giants. Pollard carried the ball three times, gaining 21 yards. He added one catch on three targets, gaining nine yards through the air. Pollard worked far behind starter Ezekiel Elliott but looked good on the few chances he had aside from one ugly drop. Pollard has league-winning upside as a handcuff, but won't have much of his own value as long as Elliott is on the field.

From RotoBaller

Oct 30 11:50am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard won't be a starting fantasy option in Week 9. Despite a great matchup against the New York Giants on Monday night, Pollard will be in his customary back seat, watching starter Ezekiel Elliott likely run circles around the Giants Defense. Pollard remains a handcuff with league-winning upside, but his individual fantasy value is very limited.

From RotoBaller

Oct 21 12:40am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard notched eight carries in a Week 7 blowout win over the division rival Philadelphia Eagles. Pollard's eight carries were well behind starter Ezekiel Elliott's 22, but he was still able to pick up 28 yards. Pollard has shown well while on the field, but he won't be able to do much as long as Elliott is around. Pollard has league-winning upside if something were to force Elliott to miss time, but even in blowout wins, Pollard's value is severely limited by his place on the depth chart.

From RotoBaller

Oct 16 11:40am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard won't likely have too big of a role in Week 7. The Cowboys will welcome the Eagles into town for Sunday Night Football, and starter Ezekiel Elliott will almost certainly see a monster workload in what should be a close game. Pollard remains a handcuff with league-winning upside, but his own value is completely game flow dependent and too difficult to predict.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 9:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard ran the ball just three times in Week 6, gaining 13 yards. Like usual, Pollard looked good with the ball in his hands, but he played only when starter Ezekiel Elliott needed a breather. He's still one of the highest upside handcuffs in fantasy, but Pollard won't be a starting option in most weeks that Ezekiel Elliott plays.

From RotoBaller

Oct 9 1:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard could get a few more touches in Week 6. With the Cowboys expected to get out to a healthy lead against the New York Jets, Pollard could see some fourth quarter run as the Cowboys try to wind down the clock. It likely won't be quite as bad as the Dolphins game, but Dallas should have an easy time on Sunday. Pollard remains one of the higher-upside handcuffs in the game, and might even have a little of his own value this week in deeper leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 8:40pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard took four carries in Week 5, gaining 19 yards. Ezekiel Elliott only got 12 carries in a game where the Cowboys were forced to rely on the passing game since they were playing from behind throughout. Pollard's four touches is about what can be expected of him weekly while playing as a direct backup to Elliott. Pollard is one of the highest-upside handcuffs in fantasy football, but is not a starting option on his own.

From RotoBaller

Oct 2 11:50am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard is just a backup for a Week 5 game against the Green Bay Packers. Even though the Packers Defense isn't great against opposing run games, Pollard is coming off a zero-touch game against the Saints and won't be heavily involved in the game plan on Sunday. The Cowboys and Packers should play a close game and starter Ezekiel Elliott will have his usual heavy workload. Pollard maintains huge upside as a handcuff, but won't have much value on his own unless Elliott gets hurt.

From RotoBaller

Sep 30 12:30am ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard did not record an offensive stat in a Week 5 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The Cowboys gave Ezekiel Elliott 18 carries and he picked up just 35 yards against a tough Saints Defense. Pollard was able to score a touchdown and gain over 100 yards against the Dolphins in Week 4, but wasn't expected to have a significant role in an actually competitive game. Pollard is a high-upside handcuff, but won't have much stand-alone value in most games.

From RotoBaller

Sep 25 12:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard will likely step back into his limited role as Ezekiel Elliott's backup in Week 4. Pollard scored a touchdown and ran for over 100 yards in Week 3, but that was mostly in garbage time against a useless Miami Dolphins team. With Week 4 taking the Cowboys to New Orleans for Sunday Night Football in what is expected to be a much closer game, Pollard will only mix in when Elliott needs a breather. He's still one of the highest-upside handcuffs in the game, but Pollard should be on the bench for Sunday night.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 7:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard had an excellent game in Week 3, running the ball 13 times for 103 yards and a touchdown while adding three catches for 25 more yards. Pollard scored on a fourth-quarter run from 16 yards out. In a game where the Cowboys had control all afternoon, Pollard got a bit more run than he would have in a closer contest. This game showed how much value Pollard could have if Ezekiel Elliott were forced to miss any time.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 4:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys' RB Tony Pollard ran for 103 yards on 13 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Dolphins.

Sep 18 3:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard is too risky to start in Week 3 even though he could see a decent number of touches. Taking on the helpless Miami Dolphins, the Cowboys may turn to Pollard for parts of the second half in order to limit starting running back Ezekiel Elliott's snaps. Still, there are way too many things that would need to go right in order for Pollard to put up a significant fantasy performance even in the ideal matchup. He remains a high-upside handcuff for Elliott owners, but little more.

From RotoBaller

Sep 15 4:20pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard only touched the ball five times in Week 2. He ran the ball four times for 22 yards and caught a pass for three more yards. With starter Ezekiel Elliott back to his full workload, Pollard took a back seat as expected. Still one of the league's highest upside handcuffs, Pollard won't have much standalone value as long as Elliott is on the field.

From RotoBaller

Sep 11 12:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard is just a backup for Week 2 and should not be in any starting lineups. Pollard got 13 carries in Week 1, tying with Ezekiel Elliott for the team lead, but could only gain 24 yards. With Ezekiel Elliott now expected to play his full workload, Pollard will be one of the higher-upside handcuffs in fantasy football, but little more. He's only going to be a starting option if Elliott is forced to miss time.
