View RB Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Pollard ranked 5th in the league in NFL Next Gen’s rushing yards over expected per attempt last season.
  • He checked in 9th in Football Outsiders’ rushing DYAR and 4th in DVOA – ahead of Ezekiel Elliott in both, and well ahead of Elliott (23rd) in DVOA.
  • Pro Football Focus graded Pollard 2nd best in rushing last season, and 10th in elusive rating among 61 RBs with 70+ carries. (Pollard’s elusive rating actually fell for the 2nd straight year.)
  • Pollard gained workload in his 3rd season. His 15 games played with Elliott in 2020 saw only slight bumps over 2019: 20.1% carry share to 21.8%; 3.7% target share to 5.1%. Last year found Pollard garnering 31.4% of Dallas carries and 7.7% of targets over his 16 games.
  • Elliott played most of the season with a partially torn right PCL he suffered in Week 4. That may have helped Pollard’s opportunity share. But Pollard got 29.8% of carries and 6% of targets even through the first 4 games.
  • Cowboys decision makers still seem to be big fans of Elliott. Executive VP Stephen Jones said of Elliott in March: “I want that guy on my team. You talk about playing through some injuries. He’s a competitor. I think he’s a damn good running back. We’re fortunate to have him.” Jones added then – and on other occasions – that the team is paying Elliott a lot of money this year.


Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Pollard is a nice player and probably the best RB in Dallas at this point. Perhaps the Cowboys shift a little more work his way this season after it seemed to work well last year. But there’s also the chance Ezekiel Elliott gets a little back his way without the knee injury. Whatever the specifics, expect Pollard to remain the clear #2 RB. That will produce some fantasy points, but it’ll be tough to know when to start him. That makes Pollard more attractive in best-ball formats than lineup-setting. Of course, his ultimate ceiling comes as handcuff to Elliott. Pollard’s 1 of the very few handcuffs who is OK to pair with his team’s RB1 on your fantasy roster. That’s because Pollard would be a good bet to at least match Elliott’s production (and quite possibly exceed it) should the starter go down.

Career year coming for Pollard?

Cowboys beat writer Jon Machota believes RB Tony Pollard is in for his most productive season yet. Machota points to the departures of Amari Cooper, Cedrick Wilson and Blake Jarwin as reason for a boosted workload. Last year, Pollard totaled 169 touches in 15 games. The contract-year back currently holds a reasonable ADP of 8.04.

It's confirmation that Pollard was held out of the regular-season finale as a precaution. Pollard averaged 7.7 carries and 3.7 targets over his final 3 games and is likely looking at a similar workload in the playoffs.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) has been downgraded to out for Saturday night's game vs. the Eagles. It's unclear if he suffered a setback with that foot or is just getting some rest with Dallas having already won the NFC East. Even with Pollard out, don't expect the Cowboys to overwork RB Ezekiel Elliott on Saturday. Corey Clement will mix in as the #2 RB.

Dynasty Write-up
2021 turned up a career-high 169 touches and an ultra-efficient season from Pollard. The 4th-year pro is now headed into a contract season. His short-term value will be tied to just how much Zeke Elliott has left in the tank.
