Cowboys Could Consider Re-Signing Tony Pollard

Wednesday, February 14, 6:06 PM

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard's production plummeted as the team's lead back in 2023, but The Athletic's Saad Yousuf thinks the Cowboys don't need to rule out the possibility of bringing Pollard back in 2024 in free agency. Despite his disappointing season as a whole, Pollard was also coming back from a serious leg injury last year. However, he may have proved that he can't be relied on to be a workhorse. If a bidding war breaks out for the 26-year-old, though, the Cowboys won't be expected to consider bringing him back. After earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2022, Pollard averaged a career-low 4.0 yards per carry on a career-high 252 rushing attempts for 1,005 yards and six touchdowns in 2023, adding a career-high 55 catches for 311 yards through the air. Pollard may not have been back to full health until December. Where he ends up in 2024 will ultimately determine his fantasy value.

Travis Etienne Jr. Caps Off Strong Season On Sunday

Sunday, January 7, 7:33 PM

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Travis Etienne Jr. finished Sunday's loss to the Titans with 57 yards off 16 carries. He added five catches for 30 yards. The Jaguars didn't make the postseason. However, Etienne can't take much of the blame, considering he was a top fantasy back all year. The 24-year-old will finish the 2023-24 campaign with 12 touchdowns (11 rushing, one receiving). He also surpassed the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the second straight season. Etienne will draw plenty of interest from fantasy managers in drafts heading into next season, and he may even get taken in the first round in many of them.
