  Cowboys | Tony Pollard hard to corral    Wed Apr 1, 11:30 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Tony Pollard was credited with 10 broken tackles on 86 rushing attempts in 2019, joining Malcolm Brown as the only players with fewer than 100 carries to break at least 10 tackles.

Footballguys view: Pollard had an impressive season as a rookie in 2019, mainly working in garbage time for the Cowboys. In 2020, Pollard will be the most high-value handcuff in fantasy football. Pollard is clearly just a backup to Ezekiel Elliott, but he's got plenty of upside if he has to get a larger role.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was on the wrong end of an NFL-high 36 drops last season.

Footballguys view: Prescott posted good numbers in 2019 and they would have been even better if his receivers didn't let him down. The franchise tagged player will be getting a new deal with the Cowboys in the near future that makes him the highest paid or near-highest paid quarterback in the league.

  Cowboys | Dak Prescott has backing    Fri Mar 27, 02:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, who has received the exclusive franchise tag from the team, has the backing of teammate Sean Lee as he strives to get a long-term deal done with the Cowboys. 'I think we obviously know how great of a player Dak is, how great of a leader he is,' Lee said, via the Dallas Morning News. 'And what he's done for us, really carried us in a lot of ways the last couple of years. We know it's a matter of time for them to figure out contract situations like that. I think we've all been through those or had teammates go through situations like this. And there's a lot of rhetoric and there's a lot of talk in the media, but you know when you have a great player like Dak and you have an organization like the Cowboys that takes care of players, it's a matter of time.'

Footballguys view: Prescott is soon to be one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league. The Cowboys placed the franchise tag on Prescott to keep him around and give the sides until mid-July to work out a new contract. It may not take that long, and we have confidence they'll be able to work something out.
