Pollard has seen a bit of an increase in work over the past few games with Zeke hampered by his knee injury and he's proving to be a solid plug-and-play option for fantasy managers as a RB2. He's now finished as a top-24 RB each of the past three weeks and he's averaging 13.66 total opportunities (targets + carries) over that time frame. With Pollard's talent, that's enough work to come through for fantasy lineups and he deserves to be considered yet again here in Week 13. The matchup against the Saints isn't great, but Pollard should see enough work to be viewed as a high-end RB3 this week.

Pollard did have 15 fantasy points last week, but he loses too many carries to Zeke Elliott to be more than a flex option.

Ezekiel Elliott once again looked slow during Thursday's Week 13 game against the Saints. Per PFF, he ranks near the bottom of the league in advanced metrics like elusive rating and breakaway rate. Pollard, meanwhile, has been far more explosive this season. The Cowboys aren't going to turn away from giving Zeke meaningful touches for as long as he's healthy enough to play in games, but betting on Pollard is as much of a bet against Elliott's health if anything.
