2021 Outlook
Depth Chart
Injuries to Dak Prescott and three starting offensive linemen killed Zeke's fantasy value and all but torpedoed his fantasy managers who used an early-round pick on former fantasy stud.

Zeke's 4.0 yard per carry average was the worst of his career and his paltry six rushing touchdowns were half of what he produced back in 2019.

While some fantasy managers might stay away from Zeke because of what happened last season, it should be noted that he is still just 25 years old, and those four key players who missed last season, including stud QB Dak Prescott, are all on pace to be ready for Week 1.

Instead of having to use a top-4 pick on Zeke as in previous years, managers drafting in the second half of the first round can benefit from the perceived demise of Zeke and secure a stud running back to pair with a top WR in round two. If I had to bet on an RB ranked outside of the top-5 who could finish this year in the top-5, Zeke would be on the shortlist.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Tony Pollard expected to play in Wild Card Round
Sat out season finale to rest foot injury
By: Doug Orth | Tue Jan 11, 1:45 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said on @1053thefan that he feels great about RB Tony Pollard’s availability for Sunday’s playoff game against the 49ers: “Absolutely. He’ll be ready to roll.” Pollard (foot) didn’t play Saturday. (The Athletic - Jon Machota)

FFToday's Take: Pollard's return takes on slightly less importance with Ezekiel Elliott looking more like himself of late. With that said, Dallas will definitely welcome his explosiveness against the 49ers. Pollard's weekly floor has been about 10 touches and could range higher than that in any game where the Cowboys find themselves in negative game script. That could easily happen this weekend, making Pollard a worthwhile ceiling play in DFS.


Injury Tony Pollard expected to play, may be limited
Foot injury
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Dec 18, 11:45 pm

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys’ running back Tony Pollard, listed as questionable for Sunday due to a foot injury, is expected to play vs. the Giants but Dallas could have a slightly more cautious approach with him due to the injury, per source. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Pollard's foot injury isn't going away anytime soon which makes him hard to trust as a Flex option. Ezekiel Elliott isn't on the injury report but is still obviously bothered by his knee injury which he will wear a brace for. The Cowboys backfield are uncomfortable Flex plays in Week 15 against the Giants.


Injury Tony Pollard likely game-time decision
Suffered torn plantar fascia in Week 13
By: Doug Orth | Fri Dec 10, 3:00 am

Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys RB Tony Pollard (foot) says he tore his left plantar fascia during 58-yard TD run vs. Saints. Resulted in less fourth-quarter work. “It’s really going to be a game-time decision” Sunday at Washington. Pollard said he still feels pain from his tear. “They say once you tear it, it actually heals better, and you don’t feel it as much. I’m waiting until I get to that point.” Not there yet. (Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The 1-2 punch of Ezekiel Elliott (knee) and Pollard has been one of the best in the league for most of the season, but now both players are dealing with injuries that figure to hamper them for the rest of the season. Corey Clement is the next back on the depth chart and could have some scant fantasy value if one of the first two needs to miss some game time, but the most obvious answer moving forward is for the Cowboys to rely more heavily on the passing game.


Injury Darren Waller to have MRI on knee injury
Injured during Week 12
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Nov 26, 7:15 am

Las Vegas Raiders
From @GMFB: The #Cowboys may alter Ezekiel Elliott's touches as he deals with a bone bruise in his knee, while #Raiders TE Darren Waller will have tests today on a knee injury suffered last night. He was not in a lot of pain late, so maybe good news there. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: Waller left yesterday's game against the Cowboys in the 2nd quarter with a knee injury and never returned. This seems like a short-term knee sprain but could cost him a week or two. We'll know more in the next day or two after the MRI.
