2019 Fantasy Outlook
Selected in the fourth round out of Memphis, Pollard ran a 4.3 40-yard dash at his pro day and has a golden opportunity to win the No. 2 RB job in Dallas given the lack of an established backup behind Ezekiel Elliott, who is holding out for a new contract. Pollard's college resume suggests he's a better fit as a return man and gadget player than a full-time running back, however, and he may be a bigger threat to Tavon Austin's roster spot than a true handcuff for Zeke. Still, if he shows his big-play potential in the preseason, new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore may try to find ways to get the ball in his hands. Read Past Outlooks

Gets just three rushes Sunday
RBDallas Cowboys
October 15, 2019
Pollard had three carries for 13 yards during Sunday's 24-22 road defeat to the Jets.
ANALYSIS
After the Cowboys' Week 5 loss to the Packers, Pollard dealt with knee and ankle injuries, but his practice reps weren't affected, and he entered this past weekend without a designation. Still, he didn't make much headway on the ground for a third consecutive game behind workhorse Ezekiel Elliott, who received 28 totes and six targets Sunday. Without an injury to Elliott, Pollard will have difficulty making more than a negligible mark in the box score most weeks.
