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

Barely involved in Sunday's loss
RBDallas Cowboys
November 12, 2019
Pollard lost four yards on his only carry in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.
ANALYSIS
The rookie RB saw only three snaps on offense, a somewhat surprising number given how little success Ezekiel Elliott was having. Since his huge performance against Miami in Week 3, Pollard hasn't topped 30 scrimmage yards in a game, and his only fantasy utility at this point is as Elliott's handcuff.
