The highly sought after handcuff flashed his potential in 2020, racking up 18 touches in Ezekiel Elliott's absence, finishing with 132 total yards and two touchdowns against a tough 49ers defense. Granted, the defense may not have given him the same respect they gave Elliott, but the offensive line was also not in great shape at that point, and Dak Prescott was not under center. If Elliott were to miss time, Pollard would be an insta-start RB1. Heck, he even flashed some flex viability last year when Elliott was on the field, which could help you get through bye weeks.
