2022 Player Outlook
The Tony Pollard hype train was in full effect last season, with many analysts preferring him to Elliott as the starting back. As a pure runner, the numbers tend to support this, with Pollard averaging 5.53 yards per attempt, ending the season with 1,056 scrimmage yards and two touchdowns. We now know that Elliott was injured a majority of the season, so Pollard will likely serve a complementary role. However, if Dallas elects to use him in the passing game, as some beat reporters have suggested, Pollard could have stand-alone fantasy value this season.
