Player Notes
Nov 24 3:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard will remain a high end backup in a Week 12 Thanksgiving matchup against the Washington Football Team. Pollard put up a solid fantasy performance last week, running for 60 yards and a touchdown, but he ultimately received just five total touches. Pollard has a little more value in leagues that count return yards, but he's still best looked at as one of the backups with the highest upside, not a starter as long as Ezekiel Elliott stays on the field.

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard ran the ball five times for 60 yards in a Week 11 win, scoring a touchdown. Pollard's score came on a 42-yard run in the fourth quarter. Despite the exciting score, Pollard still worked clearly behind starter Ezekiel Elliott, who finally had a good game of his own. Pollard continues to be a must-roster backup, but won't have much value on his own as long as Elliott remains on the field.

Nov 18 1:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is expected to continue working in a complementary role behind starter Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard was expected to see more work in Week 9 with Elliott dealing with a hamstring injury, but the starter saw more or less his normal load, leaving Pollard with just 10 touches. Pollard has been pretty efficient with his opportunities, but has yet to score more than 9.2 points (Week 4) in standard scoring leagues. He's a very valuable backup to have on your bench, but should not be in starting lineups in most formats.

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard has carved out a solid niche for himself within the Dallas offense, now seeing an average of between 22-36 percent of the team's snaps over the past six games. With Andy Dalton (concussion) set to return Sunday against Minnesota, the Dallas offense figures to be in a better place than where it was under Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert, which should work wonders for the running game of Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott. While Elliott remains the bell cow out of the backfield, those fantasy managers desperate for a RB that will receive at least a half dozen carries can eye Pollard, as the team has had its bye week to install ways of getting him the ball.

From RotoBaller

Nov 8 8:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard did well in Week 9, running the ball nine times for 57 yards and catching a pass for one more yard on two targets. Pollard still took a backseat to starter Ezekiel Elliott even though Elliott was expected to be limited. Pollard saw half as many carries as Elliott's 18, but gained six more yards. Pollard was clearly the more efficient runner in this one, but he remains no threat to Elliott's starting job. Pollard is still a potential high-upside RB2 if Elliott misses time, but he'll continue to be little more than a change-of-pace option unless that happens.

From RotoBaller

Nov 4 1:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard will likely continue in his change-of-pace role in Week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Pollard has been getting a few more touches lately, but he's still working clearly behind starter Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard was the more efficient runner last week, running the ball seven times for 40 yards, but as long as Elliott remains in the lineup, Pollard will have very little upside. He's still worth rostering of course, as he'd take on a near every-down role if "Zeke" were to miss time.

Nov 2 12:10am ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard ran the ball seven times for 40 yards and added two catches on two targets for 24 yards. Pollard fell well behind starter Ezekiel Elliott's 21 touches, but came close to his 73 total yards. Pollard looked like the more effective running back in the box score, but the Eagles Defense basically game planned to take Elliott out of the game. Both Pollard and Elliott have taken huge hits in their fantasy value with the loss of Dak Prescott (ankle) for the season. Pollard is still worth rostering, but shouldn't be started in most leagues as long as Elliott stays on the field.

Oct 28 2:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard doesn't make for a strong fantasy option in Week 8 despite an increasing role in the previous week. With starter Ezekiel Elliott failing to distance himself from Pollard and losing two fumbles last week, Pollard has been seeing more and more touches, with a season-high 12 in Week 6 and another nine in Week 7. That's still not enough for consistent production, but it does eat into Elliott's upside. With the Cowboys offense in shambles and perhaps getting even worse this week with Andy Dalton (concussion) on the wrong side of questionable, Pollard should remain on fantasy benches in most formats.

From RotoBaller

Oct 25 5:20pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard got eight carries in Week 7, gaining just 16 yards. He added one catch, gaining six yards on his only target. The Cowboys offense as a whole is looking like a complete mess. Even if Pollard continues to get more carries than expected, he won't find much room to run behind a struggling Cowboys offensive line. He's still worth rostering behind Ezekiel Elliott, but isn't a starting option beyond the deepest fantasy leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 21 5:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard saw a bit more play in Week 6 after starter Ezekiel Elliott fumbled twice in the first half. Starting over in Week 7, Pollard is almost sure to take a back seat to Elliott again, unless Elliott puts the ball on the ground again. Pollard got 10 chances to run the ball last week, gaining 31 yards. He was also targeted four times in the passing game, catching two for another nine yards. It was his first game with double-digit touches after a previous high of eight. He remains an extremely valuable backup and should be rostered, but he should not be started as long as Elliott remains on the field.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 12:20am ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard ran the ball 10 times in a Week 6 loss, gaining 31 yards. He was targeted four times in the passing game, catching two passes for nine yards. Pollard came into this one with a total of 13 rush attempts, so his 10 runs were a bit of a surprise. Starter Ezekiel Elliott lost two fumbles and cost the Cowboys a competitive first half, likely leading to an increased role for Pollard. Still, Elliott is in no danger of losing his role on offense, leaving Pollard as a huge difference-maker only if Elliott misses time due to injury, illness, or suspension.

From RotoBaller

Oct 15 5:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard could see a few more touches in Week 6 and going forward with Andy Dalton under center. Starter Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott (ankle) essentially used to share rushing work, but with Prescott done for the year, Pollard could mix in a bit more to spell Elliott. Pollard saw eight touches in Week 5, rushing six times for 30 yards and catching two passes. He still isn't likely to have standard league appeal on his own, but he's a must-have on the roster of any team with Elliott. Pollard could be a league winner if Elliott were to miss time.

From RotoBaller

Oct 11 9:00pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard ran the ball six times in Week 5, gaining 30 yards. He added two catches for two more yards. He was targeted three times in the passing game. Pollard, like usual, showed good burst and potential with the ball in his hands, but he played clearly behind starter Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard can win leagues is anything happens to Elliott, but as long as the starter is on the field, Pollard should remain on fantasy benches.

From RotoBaller

Oct 7 8:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard remains a bench stash ahead of a Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants. Pollard could be a league-winner if starter Ezekiel Elliott were to miss time, but unless that happens, Pollard has very little value on his own. Pollard was in on a season-high 27% of offensive snaps in Week 5, and he turned that into 16 yards through the air and 16 yards on the ground plus a touchdown, but it was very much a situational score that could have easily been Elliott's. Pollard should absolutely be rostered in almost all formats, but he can't be started outside of the deepest leagues.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 4:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard touched the ball four times on offense in Week 4, but was able to score a touchdown. He ran the ball three times for 16 yards and was targeted twice in the passing game, catching one for another 16 yards. Pollard's score came on a three-yard run up the middle in the third quarter. Pollard continues to occasionally flash his potential, but he won't be a starting option in most fantasy formats unless starter Ezekiel Elliott is forced to miss time.

From RotoBaller

Sep 30 1:10pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is not a fantasy option in Week 4 lineups. Pollard should be rostered in all formats because of his potential league-winning upside if starter Ezekiel Elliott goes down, but Pollard has no value on his own as long as Elliott is playing. Last week, Pollard was only on the field for 7% of the team's offensive snaps. He did not get a rushing attempt, and caught his only target in the passing game, managing to lose five yards. Pollard should remain on the bench, but should certainly be rostered.

From RotoBaller

Sep 27 9:40pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard touched the ball only once on offense in Week 3. Pollard did not record a rushing attempt, and he caught his only target, losing five yards on it. Pollard continues to play as a distant backup to three-down back Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott saw 12 targets in the passing game in this one, a spot that Pollard may have been used in in the past. Pollard remains a backup with league-winning upside but is not a starting option in any format as long as Elliott is healthy.

From RotoBaller

Sep 23 4:50pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is not a standalone fantasy option in Week 3 lineups. Pollard remains a potential league-winning backup, but as long as Ezekiel Elliott is on the field, Pollard won't get enough playing time to make much fantasy noise. In Week 1, Pollard was on the field for just 14% of offensive snaps and that dropped to 10% in Week 2. Pollard should be rostered in all formats, but shouldn't be started anywhere at this point.

From RotoBaller

Sep 20 6:30pm ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard only got three touches in Week 2. It was one touch less than the four he received in Week 1. Pollard continues to work as Ezekiel Elliott's direct backup and has league-winning upside if anything happens to Elliott, but has very little if any stand-alone fantasy value. He should be rostered in every fantasy format, but should not be started as long as Elliott remains on the field.

From RotoBaller

Sep 14 1:10am ET

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard touched the ball four times in a Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Rams. Pollard ran the ball twice, gaining 10 yards and added two catches for 22 more yards. Pollard operated clearly behind Ezekiel Elliott, but showed a lot of the same burst he impressed with last season. Pollard won't be a reliable fantasy option as long as Elliott is on the field, but he is a direct backup with clear league-winning upside and should be rostered by all fantasy players with Elliott on their team.
