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.
Dallas Cowboys' RB Tony Pollard ran for 103 yards on 13 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Dolphins.
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.
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.
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.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard received 13 carries in his first NFL game in Week 1. He wasn't able to find much room though, averaging just 1.8 yards per carry and totaling 24 yards on the ground. Pollard was ticketed for a much bigger role when starter Ezekiel Elliott was involved in a contract dispute with the team, but with Elliott back on the team, the two backs both ended up with 13 carries. Going forward, Elliott will certainly receive the vast majority of the team's carries, leaving Pollard as a potential high-upside handcuff, but little more in most fantasy formats.
Dallas' RB Tony Pollard averaged a dreadful 1.8 yards per carry on 13 attempts in Sunday's win against the Giants.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard should still have a decently meaningful role on offense in Week 1. Pollard was a fantasy darling when starter Ezekiel Elliott was thought to potentially continue his holdout into the regular season, but now that "Zeke" is back, Pollard's immediate value takes a massive hit. Still, the Cowboys are expected to ease Elliott back into the offense with 20-25 snaps in Week 1, leaving enough for Pollard to likely make some noise. He's an RB3 option in Week 1, but won't be ranked that high again unless Elliott is forced to miss time. With Elliott's return, Pollard will be little more than a handcuff with nice upside.
Dallas Cowboys All-Pro offensive guard Zack Martin had good things to say about rookie running back Tony Pollard. Listen, were preparing for the season. Were going to play with what weve got. And what weve got is a damn good back in Tony Pollard, Martin said. Obviously you want (Zeke) out here but were preparing to get ready for Week 1. Each day Ezekiel Elliott holds out as the regular season approaches, the greater the chances are that he either doesn't play at all or is limited in Week 1. As a result, Pollard's fantasy stock keeps rising. He could be a sneaky RB3/flex option to begin the season, especially if Elliott continues his holdout. Consider drafting Pollard in the late middle rounds, if nothing else as a solid Zeke handcuff.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard led the backfield in Saturday's preseason game, running the ball five times for 42 yards and a touchdown. He added a nine yard catch as well. Pollard got the most carries and yards and the only touchdown among Cowboys running backs. With Ezekiel Elliott possibly on the sidelines for Week 1 or more, Pollard could be in for a couple of RB1 weeks.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard is capable of "carrying the load" according to Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones. Pollard was drafted in the fourth round and has been working as the lead back in practices while starter Ezekiel Elliott holds out for a new contract. Pollard only played the first series in Saturday's preseason game, much like a player expected to have a large role in Week 1 would. Elliott's holdout isn't expected to last into the regular season as of now, but it does remain a possibility. If that's the case, Pollard could be thrust into a workhorse role that would certainly have significant fantasy implications.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard could have a fantasy-significant role almost immediately in the 2019 season. The Cowboys drafted Pollard in the fourth round, which was considered an overdraft by some, meaning they have a plan for him and wanted to make sure to leave the draft with him on the roster. Pollard will of course be behind Ezekiel Elliott on the depth chart, but he won't be strictly used as a handcuff for the star running back. Pollard ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at his pro day and will be one of the fastest players on the Dallas roster. The Cowboys like using fast guys who can catch the ball and play in a hybrid role, like Lance Dunbar, Tavon Austin, and Lucky Whitehead. Pollard comes with some risk of course, but he could be a sleeper asset in PPR leagues as early as Week 1. He'll be someone to keep an eye on during training camp.
Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Tony Pollard, a fourth-round pick, should see decent playing time in his first season. The Cowboys likely think he can make an immediate impact as depth behind Ezekiel Elliott. While Pollard could be used in a variety of ways to spell Elliott, he's unlikely to have standalone value for fantasy owners in his first season in the NFL unless Elliott gets hurt. He might be a worthy handcuff in the later rounds if you draft Elliott in the first round.
