Tony Pollard News

  • Tony Pollard may not have upside · Aug 7, 2023

    A recent report suggests Tony Pollard may not have more production in 2023 than he did in 2022

    Now, THAT would be an issue considering Pollard's RB11 ranking on DLF. All expectations are for the newly crowned RB1 in Dallas to produce as a top option. Not eclipsing his 1,007 rushing yards on 193 carries would be a disappointment. The report suggests the team doesn't feel they can rely on a heavier workload and will need to employ a greater committee to keep Pollard healthy. He also produced 39 receptions in 2022, matching his 2021 total. Should this prediction hold true, Pollard would be a sell-high candidate from his current ranking. While this may be the case, Tony Pollard still projects highly in the Cowboys offense and it's hard to envision his dynasty managers to unloading shares into this uncertainty.

  • Tony Pollard focused · Jul 27, 2023

    Tony Pollard is excited to be featured running back and "making the most out of everything I'm given."

    Pollard seemed to understand the situation clearly and immediately signed his $10.1M franchise tag offer. It could be because he had yet to see a single year payday at that amount or it could be that he understands that the best path forward to an even larger contract next year is pure production as the team's unquestioned RB1. In all likelihood, it was both. In either case, Pollard will play the 2023 season at 26 years-of-age and will have another opportunity to be paid in 2024, likely with greater compensation after a good year. Listed as DLF's RB11, all arrows are pointing straight up for Tony Pollard in 2023 and he's a clear workhorse back this season who should factor both as a rusher and a receiver.

  • Tony Pollard's future uncertain · Jul 5, 2023

    Tony Pollard is playing on the franchise tag in 2023, making his 2024 status uncertain

    There's little question that Pollard hasn't earned a raise from his 2023 franchise tag amount of $10M based on his 2022 performance. But the 26-year-old isn't in control of the bigger question, that being the continuing devaluation of the running back position. The position is now seen as interchangeable and team's aren't quick to pay-up in order to retain their RB1 players. Pollard will be 27 in 2024 and will be entering an uninspiring free agent market. Only six running backs average over $10M, and with the team needing to address the contracts of both Dak Prescott and CeeDee Lamb over the next 12 months, Tony Pollard is is going to be hard pressed to earn anything beyond this year's franchise tag amount. He's found as DLF's RB11.

  • Tony Pollard the lead back · May 30, 2023

    Speaking on the topic of the Cowboys backfield, head coach Mike McCarthy said: "It's Tony's opportunity to be the lead back."

    There's no surprise in that statement and McCarthy's full quote was: "It's Tony's opportunity to be the lead back, so we're just getting all of those guys ready. Deuce is the new guy and it's been cool to see him implemented in the things that we've been doing here the last week. The group will look different because [Zeke's] presence is not there."The Cowboys were sixth-overall in rushing attempts (531) in 2022 and the absence of Ezekiel Elliott looms large as a potential benefit to Pollard. That said, it's not out of the question Elliott returns to the team on a much cheaper contract, one that would allow the veteran to slide into a backup role. As for Pollard, the recently-turned 26-year-old has steadily climbed dynasty rankings and is now found as DLF's RB11 with most expecting a material increase in touches in 2023. With equal potential both as a runner and as a receiver, Pollard could solidify himself as one of fantasy's top-backs with another strong performance in 2023.

  • Tony Pollard an early winner · Apr 28, 2023

    The Dallas Cowboys failed to draft a running back in round one of the NFL Draft.

    Dallas had long been linked to All-World running back Bijan Robinson, but he went #8 overall to the Atlanta Falcons. While it was unlikely he would have fallen all the way to Dallas, it was a serious concern to Tony Pollard managers as Jerry Jones has long loved himself the franchise running back. With Robinson (and Jahmyr Gibbs) off the board, the runway is there for Pollard to continue proving he is a true RB1 in dynasty leagues. Pollard is currently our RB10 and that may honestly be too low based on his 2022 season.
