Pollard gained 455 rushing yards on 86 carries (5.3 YPC) and added 15 catches for 107 yards. With 6.7 touches per game, he doesn’t have much weekly value, but he has top 10 upside if anything were to happen to Ezekiel Elliott.
Elliott has been a disappointment as a high first round pick in fantasy this season. His fumbling issues and general lack of efficiency is not entirely his problem, but teammate Tony Pollard has shined in smaller bursts despite the situation. The Cowboys are on their bye week.
DAL RB Tony Pollard - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Washington Football Team
Tony Pollard's Week 11 fantasy line looks promising, but context is key in fantasy football and the vast majority of Pollard's production last week came on one 42-yard touchdown run. Pollard only received four other carries in the game and was not targeted in the passing game. Make no mistake about it, Ezekiel Elliott is still the workhorse in Dallas and Pollard's fantasy relevance depends entirely on Elliott suffering an injury. Pollard is not a starting option in Week 12, especially with a tough matchup against the Washington defense.
