2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
With Ezekiel Elliott now out of the way, fantasy managers are understandably anxious to land new Cowboys starting running back Tony Pollard in drafts. Primarily a backup in 2022, Pollard still managed to finish as an RB1 in fantasy and that was on a fairly limited workload. Pollard was, in fact, one of only two RBs (Leonard Fournette) who finished within the top 20 scorers (standard scoring) at the position and did not reach 200 carries on the season. An expected increased workload both in the running and passing game means that the sky is truly the limit for this highly talented back.

Some experts believed that the Cowboys would end up making a move to acquire another back of note this offseason, but that didn't happen. While they brought in veteran journeyman Ronald Jones and drafted rookie Deuce Vaughn, neither player projects to be a significant hindrance to Pollard's role as the team's feature back. The lack of competition behind Pollard on the depth chart, along with the coaching staff's vocal commitment to running the ball, are just more reasons why Tony Pollard looks primed to finish as a high-end RB1 here in 2023.

If you're looking for skepticism, one thing to keep in mind is that the Cowboys opted not to make Pollard their feature back in the past despite the fact that he was significantly out-producing Elliott on a per-touch basis. Instead, we saw roughly a 50/50 split at best, oftentimes with Elliott seeing the lion's share of the ever-important goal-line touches. If the team was unwilling to make Pollard a 20-touch player when Elliott was clearly struggling, there has to be some concern that they may just not view him as a true workhorse back. Still, given the lack of competition, it's safe to assume that Pollard will see at least some increase to his workload and if he can remain anywhere near as efficient as he has been in years past, there's no reason to think that he won't produce top-12 numbers at RB this season.

No RBs expected to the get the franchise tag
Deep free agent RB class in 2024
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Feb 26, 2:53 pm

New York Giants
This offseason stands in contrast to 2023, when Josh Jacobs, Saquon Barkley, Tony Pollard received franchise tags. This offseason, it appears no RBs will be tagged, making this one of the finest and deepest RB classes in the history of free agency. (Adam Schefter on X)

FFToday's Take: The 2024 free agent RB class is stacked with Jacobs, Barkley, Pollard, Derrick Henry and Austin Ekeler. The question is, what kind of deals are these veterans going to get? We've seen the market slowly dry up for veteran RBs over the last few years with Jacobs and Barkley settling for one-year deals just last season. Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones are also cut candidates given the money their going to count against the salary cap this season.
