Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard could be used in a variety of ways by head coach Mike McCarthy, similar to how McCarthy deployed RB Ty Montgomery while he was with the Green Bay Packers, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Pollard finished his rookie year with 562 total yards, including 107 through the air, and three scores. Even if he does see more snaps as a receiver, he will still be just handcuff to Ezekiel Elliott for fantasy purposes.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard carried the ball 12 times for 131 yards and a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 15. Pollard added 12 yards via a pair of receptions.
Huddle Up: LA looked like they wanted no part of the Cowboys' running game, and Pollard ran hard in relief of Elliott. Despite the big number, Pollard's role only approaches fantasy relevant in these kinds of lopsided games. As such, the rookie can't be played in most leagues.

The Dallas Cowboys hope that RB Tony Pollard (ankle) can return to practice during the upcoming week and play in Week 15's game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Huddle Up: Aside from being a handcuff for Ezekiel Elliott fantasy owners, Pollard possesses very little fantasy value right now.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard carried the ball three times for 13 yards in Week 6 against the New York Jets.
Huddle Up: Once again the Cowboys fell way behind and had to scramble to catch up, which meant keeping Elliott on the field most of the time. Despite some talent, Pollard just isn't getting the looks right now to be more than a handcuff for Elliott owners.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (knee/ankle) practiced in full Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Pollard rushed just four times for 19 yards in the Cowboys' Week 5 loss against the Green Bay Packers. His usage depends on game flow and he'll require the Cowboys to have large leads in order to get on the field consistently. He's a flex play in soft matchups.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard rushed four times for 19 yards against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 6.
Huddle Up: Pollard has done almost nothing the past two weeks, but next Sunday's matchup with the Jets could present an opportunity similar to the one he had against the Dolphins in Week 3 when Pollard ran for 103 yards and a score. It'd be a risky move to slide the rookie into your flex slot, but Pollard's Week 6 upside is genuine.

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard did not log a single carry or reception against the New Orleans Saints in Week 4.
Huddle Up: Tonight served as a reminder that Pollard is not a complement to Elliott but a pure backup. When Dallas is dominating on the ground, Pollard will get some looks, but in a tight contest he'll be an afterthought. As such, Pollard is no more than a handcuff for Elliott owners.
