Offensive Player of the Year: Tony Pollard
This was a race between Tony Pollard and CeeDee Lamb, but ultimately Pollard was given the award. Last week was just a slight reason why there needs to be more TP in this offense because, in reality, he’s been doing this all season and last season.
Last week, in Ezekiel Elliott’s absence, Pollard racked up 147 yards of total offense against the Chicago Bears on just 15 touches. The quick math there means that every time Pollard touched the football (14 times were rushes), he averaged an unbelievable 9.8 yards per touch.
The rightful RB1 not only had a great game last week but as I said before, he’s been doing this all season. Pollard currently leads the team in rushing yards with 506 and has also tallied 121 yards through the air on 12 catches. Also, for what it’s worth, PFF has him graded with a 90.1 offensive grade, which ranks third among all running backs.
He has a nose for the endzone, leading the team with five touchdowns this season, and has a chance to make something out of nothing every single play. He is a huge reason why this offense is taking a turn, and why the team was able to stay afloat while Prescott was out.
