  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Stellar season continues

    Pollard rushed 12 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns while catching two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 54-19 win over Indianapolis. Dallas' rushing attack did the heavy lifting in this blowout win, producing two strong fantasy lines from Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott (17 carries for 71 yards and a TD). The more-explosive of the duo finished with the finer performance this week, bumping his yards per carry average up to 5.8 in the process. Pollard has now compiled 1,111 scrimmage yards and 10 total touchdowns through 12 games, rewarding those who believed in the preseason hype surrounding the fourth-year back. The lowly Texans are on tap for the Cowboys on Sunday, putting Pollard in a prime position to produce another monster fantasy game.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Takes back seat to Zeke in win

    Pollard carried the ball 18 times for 60 yards and caught both his targets for only one yard in Thursday's 28-20 win over the Giants. For the first time since Week 6, Pollard saw Ezekiel Elliott gain more yards than him, but the duo were still both productive in the comeback victory. Pollard still saw his streak of games with 100-plus scrimmage yards end at four, but he remains a big-play threat every time he touches the ball. He'll look to bounce back in a Week 13 clash with the Colts.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Remains dominant in split role

    Pollard rushed 15 times for 80 yards and caught all six of his targets for 109 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 40-3 win over the Vikings. Ezekiel Elliott (knee) returned from a two-game absence and split carries evenly with Pollard. The latter was expected to remain heavily involved offensively after dominating in the veteran starter's absence, and the team stayed true to its word leading up to this decisive victory. The lone blemish on this standout performance was Pollard's inability to punch in two attempts from the goal line, leading to Elliott relieving him and finishing the job. That scenario highlights the difference in the two back's playstyles, justifying the even split in usage despite Pollard's superior rushing efficiency this season. The 25-year-old will look to stay white hot heading into a matchup against the Giants on Thanksgiving.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Likely to be lead runner again

    Pollard is expected to get the bigger share of the touches in the Cowboys backfield Sunday at Minnesota, even with Ezekiel Elliott (knee) returning from a two-game absence, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Pollard paced Dallas' ground game in place of Elliott during that span, racking up 40 touches for 275 yards from scrimmage and four rushing touchdowns. When Elliott was active for the first seven contests of the season, Pollard averaged a shade over 10 touches per game, but the team is slated to ease the former back into the lineup, meaning the latter is poised for another outing as the Cowboys' lead runner.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Thriving in lead role

    Pollard rushed 22 times for 115 yards and a touchdown while catching three of six targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to Green Bay. Pollard served as the Cowboys' lead back in place of Ezekiel Elliott (knee) for the second week in a row, and he looked the part with another 100-plus yard rushing game. The 25-year-old wasn't able to replicate last week's three-score game, but he did make one trip to the end zone to bring his season total up to six. Elliott was listed as questionable for this game, so the veteran could return soon and cut into Pollard's recent surge in usage. Starting or not, Pollard presents enough upside as a home-run threat to warrant starting against the Vikings next Sunday.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Serving as lead back again Sunday

    Pollard will once again serve as the Cowboys' No. 1 running back in Sunday's Week 10 clash against the Packers with Ezekiel Elliott (knee) declared inactive for the contest, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. Pollard parlayed such an opportunity into 131 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries against the Bears in Week 8, and he'll have the added benefit Sunday of coming into his second straight assignment as the lead back rested off the Week 9 bye. The matchup against the Packers defense shapes up as about as appealing as that against Chicago, as Green Bay has surrendered an NFC-high 175.3 rushing yards per home game.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Likely to retain No. 1 role Week 10

    Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy suggested Pollard will likely remain the team's top running back Sunday against the Packers with Ezekiel Elliott (knee) listed as questionable but seemingly not expected to play, Ed Werder of ESPN reports. Though both team owner Jerry Jones and Pollard indicated earlier in the week that they anticipated Elliott returning from a one-game absence Sunday, the news pertaining to Elliott's status has become more negative in recent days. Even if Elliott is cleared to return from his hyperextended knee, he may have a smaller role than usual Sunday, which seemingly sets up Pollard to retain the high-volume role he enjoyed in a Week 8 win over the Bears. In that 49-29 victory, Pollard carried 14 times for 131 yards and three touchdowns while turning his lone target into a 16-yard reception.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Could share work with Elliott

    Pollard could move back into a timeshare in the backfield for Sunday's game against the Packers with Ezekiel Elliott (knee) listed as questionable but seemingly on track to be available in some capacity, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. More clarification on Elliott's role might not be known until further reports trickle in over the weekend and when the Cowboys release their inactive list 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, but if he returns from a one-game absence, Pollard would likely see at least a slight role reduction. Before the Cowboys' Week 9 bye, Elliott's hyperextended right knee kept him out of action in a Week 8 game against the Bears, allowing Pollard to pick up the start. Though he was on the field for just 53 percent of the snaps on offense due in some part to the blowout nature of the game, Pollard logged a season-high 14 carries in the 49-29 win and finished with 131 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. Even if the matchup with Green Bay proves more competitive and if Elliott is brought back in a limited capacity, the Cowboys likely won't ask Pollard to handle much larger of a role than he held in Week 8. According to Gehlken, running backs coach Skip Peete said as recently as a week ago that the Cowboys prefer not to use Pollard for more than 30 snaps for a given game, though Pollard himself suggested that the 30-play limit wasn't a hard cap.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Lead-back role awaits

    Pollard is in line to handle a featured role out of the Dallas backfield in Sunday's game against Chicago with Ezekiel Elliott (knee/thigh) inactive for the contest, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Dallas moved up running backs Malik Davis and Qadree Ollison from the practice squad Saturday, but neither is a sure bet to poach a significant amount of snaps or touches from Pollard, who could be in store for one of the largest workloads of his career while Elliott sits out for the first time since Week 15 of the 2020 season. The Cowboys are on bye Week 9 before returning to action in Green Bay on Nov. 13, at which point Elliott may have made enough progress in his recovery from a Grade 2 right MCL sprain and a thigh bruise to re-enter the lineup. With that in mind, Pollard may be in store for only one game as the Cowboys' unquestioned lead back, but he'll at least make for a strong option in fantasy lineups this week.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Likely starting with Zeke injured

    Pollard is expected to start Sunday against the Bears in place of Ezekiel Elliott (knee), Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The Cowboys are sending signals they plan to hold Elliott out until after their Week 9 bye, leaving practice-squad players Malik Davis and Qadree Ollison as the likely options behind Pollard, who had 132 total yards and two touchdowns the only other time Elliott missed a game the past four years (Week 15 of 2020). It's a good opportunity for Pollard to see much more than his usual 11.1 touches per game, with the Cowboys playing at home against a sub-.500 team on short rest.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Top DFS Play

    Pollard will be the chalk this week with Ezekiel Elliott likely out and you should not shy away from it. I project 29 touches for more than 100 yards against a Bears defense that has surrendered the eighth-most Fantasy points to opposing running backs.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Efficient with 14 touches

    Pollard rushed 12 times for 83 yards and secured both targets for 26 yards in the Cowboys' 24-6 win over the Lions on Sunday. Pollard was three carries behind backfield mate Ezekiel Elliott, but he outgained him by 26 yards. The fourth-year back's 6.9 yards per carry was especially impressive, and he's now eclipsed the 80-yard mark on the ground in two of his last three games. His next opportunity to continue churning out strong numbers comes in a favorable Week 8 home matchup against the Bears' suspect run defense.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Flex Starter (Lineup Decisions)

    There is always a risk in starting Pollard because he's probably just as capable of totaling 80 yards as he is of totaling 18 yards. You probably know going in that Elliott is likely to see more snaps including when they get inside the 5-yard line. But the Lions run defense stinks and especially stinks at wrapping up breakaway runners, which is Pollard's specialty. I think he's among the best flexes you could trot out in Week 7 ahead of Kareem Hunt, Brian Robinson, Romeo Doubs and Robert Woods.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Modest output on 13 touches

    Pollard rushed 11 times for 44 yards and caught two of three targets for eight yards in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Eagles. Pollard tied his season high in touches with 13, but he was bottled up outside of an isolated 15-yard rush. Veteran counterpart Ezekiel Elliott looked like the more explosive back in a tough matchup against Philly's defense, which doesn't line up with the trends we saw from both players through Dallas' previous five contests. The good news for Pollard's fantasy managers is that the Lions and their 32nd-ranked rush defense are on tap next Sunday.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Likely available for Week 5

    Pollard (illness), who is listed as questionable, is expected to play Sunday against the Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Pollard missed Friday's practice due to an illness, but he traveled with the team Saturday and is in line to play Sunday. However, fantasy managers are still encouraged to confirm Pollard's status ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff before locking him into lineups.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Traveling with team

    Pollard (illness) will travel with the team ahead of Sunday's game against the Rams, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. This is positive news considering Pollard missed Friday's practice with an illness. It's also encouraging the Cowboys didn't call up a running back from the practice squad. Expect more news regarding the veteran's status to emerge throughout the weekend ahead of the team's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Questionable due to illness

    Pollard missed Friday's practice due to an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Patrick Walker of the Cowboys' official site reports. The end-of-week addition to the injury report could set up a game-time decision ahead of the 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff Sunday, though Pollard shouldn't be in danger of missing more than the one game because of an illness. If Pollard isn't available, Ezekiel Elliott likely would handle more than his usual 60-65 percent of snaps, with Rico Dowdle providing support off the bench.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Struggles from scrimmage

    Pollard ran for six yards on eight carries in a win against Washington on Sunday and caught one pass for two yards on three targets. The Washington defense prioritized shutting down the Dallas ground game in this one, so Pollard, and to a lesser extent, Ezekiel Elliott (49 yards on 19 carries) struggled to get any traction with their touches Sunday. A Week 5 matchup against the Rams isn't an obvious source of encouragement for Pollard as he looks to bounce back, but this box score should prove an anomaly going forward.

  • Cowboys' Tony Pollard: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    I have Pollard as a borderline starter in all leagues this week, and he looked awesome in Week 3 at the Giants with 13 carries for 105 yards, including a 46-yard run in the second quarter. The Cowboys also gave him some chances to help run out the clock late in the fourth quarter. I don't think Ezekiel Elliott is going away anytime soon, and Elliott is worth starting in all leagues this week as well. But Pollard should be no worse than a flex option given the matchup with Washington at home.
