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. 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

April 27, 2019
The Cowboys selected Pollard in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 128th overall.
While a disappointing 4.52 40 time initially dinged Pollard's draft stock, the Memphis product followed it up with a 4.3 40 at his pro day and now appears to be headed to a Cowboys team that was known to be in the market for a young backup to Ezekiel Elliott. With Rod Smith gone and practically only Darius Jackson and Jordan Chunn to compete with, Pollard seems to have decent odds of opening the season as one of the more valuable handcuff running backs in fantasy. After averaging a school record 40 yards per kick return, Pollard would also have boosted value in leagues that count all-purpose yards.
