Confused by all the Pollard over Zeke takes? Request for more advanced stats/analytics (1 Viewer)

I was trying to take a closer look at Zeke's stats, specifically how often he was facing stacked boxes. My gut when hearing the Pollard over Zeke takes was that people must not be watching the games and ignoring how poor this offense has been. Long story short Fournette is a good Zeke comparable. The only difference between the two on paper comes down to passing game usage and redzone opportunities. Which for fantasy purposes is huge especially in PPR formats. Here's the thing, if (and it's an 'if') The Dallas offense improves with Dak, the gap between Zeke and Fournette narrows considerably.

While I'm at it, I might as well throw out some Pollard slander by stating that Cowboys might be better off in a situation where Pollard gets injured and in serious trouble if having to rely solely on Pollard. The whole no lightning without thunder...

1. I looked around and couldn't find a tool on the site to help delve into this a little more. Do we have advanced statistical data on the site ex: dvoa...or even basic yards before and after contact, situational stats?
2. Thoughts on Zeke being the back to own in Dallas ROS?

Food for thought!
