  • Dak Prescott Has No Infections Post-Surgery

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (leg) has not had any infections after his surgery. This sets Prescott up to start the four to six month recovery window from the injury. While he won't be back at all in 2020, Prescott should be good to go in 2021, though the big question remains if he'll be in Dallas or not, as he was playing this season on the franchise tag.

  • Cowboys Remain Committed To Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said the team remains committed to quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) after he suffered a gruesome season-ending compound fracture and dislocation of his ankle in the Week 5 win over the Giants. Dallas and Prescott were unable to come to terms on a long-term contract extension before the 2020 season, so he was playing this season under the franchise tag. "He's our future. He's special. If anyone can overcome anything it will be Dak. It's something our doctors feel like he'll overcome, and he'll come back better than ever," Jones said. It's a huge blow to the Cowboys and fantasy owners, as Prescott had thrown for the most yards in NFL history through four games. Former Bengal Andy Dalton will take over the rest of the way, and he'll have streaming appeal in 12-team leagues in the right matchups. He'll be an attractive waiver pickup this week.

  • Dak Prescott Has Successful Surgery, Out 4-6 Months

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) underwent successful surgery on Sunday night for a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle, according to a source. Prescott is expected to be released from the hospital on Monday, and a source told ESPN that the Cowboys QB will face a recovery timetable of four to six months. "He is an inspiration to everyone he touches. He has all of our love and support. And we have no doubt that he will return to the position of leadership and purpose that he brings to our team," owner Jerry Jones said. Prescott ends his 2020 season with 1,690 yards, nine touchdowns and three interceptions in five games. The team will move forward with Andy Dalton as the starter under center, and he could become a decent QB2 streamer with all the weapons Dallas has around him.

  • Dak Prescott To Undergo Ankle Surgery Sunday Night

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) suffered a significant ankle injury in the second half of Sunday's game against the New York Giants. The Cowboys have decided to act fast on the injury as it has been announced that Prescott is slated to undergo surgery on his ankle Sunday night. The exact nature of Prescott's injury hasn't been released at this point, but he likely has a broken ankle and potentially other injuries to his lower leg as well. Prescott owners in fantasy should prepare to be without him for an extended amount of time, though he should remain on rosters until we get a more clear sense of how long he should be out for.

  • Dak Prescott Injures Ankle, Leaves Game

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) injured his ankle in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Prescott was down on the ground for a while before being helped onto a cart and carted off the field. It's likely that Prescott could have suffered a broken ankle on the play. Prescott had tears in his eyes as he was being carted off the field, suggesting he knew the injury was something significant. Andy Dalton entered the game to take over under center.

  • Dak Prescott An Easy QB1 Choice In Week 5

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is an easy QB1 choice for all fantasy lineups in Week 5. Prescott is on pace to throw for 6,760 yards, and while he likely won't keep up that ridiculous pace, the Cowboys Defense has proven that Prescott will need to be throwing a lot to keep up in most games this season. In Week 5, he takes on the New York Giants Defense, who has surprisingly good numbers against opposing quarterbacks this year. Much of that would seem to be matchup-based, however, keeping Prescott as a top-tier QB1 in almost any format.

  • Dak Prescott Tops 500 Yards Passing In Week 4

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott did everything he could in Week 4 but ultimately came up short in a 49-38 loss to the Cleveland Browns. Prescott completed 41 of his 58 passes for 502 yards and four touchdowns, adding two rushes for 12 yards. He did throw a pick, but it came on the Cowboys last play of the game and seemed to be caused by a miscommunication with his receiver. Prescott was the only reason the Cowboys were even in this game, and with their defense playing this poorly, Dak should be able to throw the ball a ton going forward. He's an easy QB1 choice regardless of his opponent.

  • Dak Prescott A Top-Tier Option In Week 4

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a top-tier fantasy option for a Week 4 matchup against the Cleveland Browns. Prescott has been incredible so far this season, mostly buoyed by a likely unsustainable passing volume. He's currently on pace to make 768 passing attempts this season, but he has shown that he can still do plenty of damage with fewer chances. Prescott is a top-five QB1 for Week 4 and should continue to be a must-start QB1 throughout the season.

  • Dak Prescott Totals 498 Yards In Week 3

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had another excellent, productive performance in Week 3, totaling 498 offensive yards. Dak completed 37 of his 57 passes for 472 yards and ran the ball six times for 26 more yards. Prescott threw three touchdowns and two interceptions. Prescott found a new target this week in Ced Wilson, who caught two of the touchdowns Dak threw. The Cowboys take on the Browns next week, and Prescott will be a top-half QB1 again.

  • Dak Prescott Looks Set For Another Strong Performance

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had an outstanding game in Week 2 and is set for another big game in Week 3. The Cowboys will take on the Seattle Seahawks in what should be a high scoring game with two powerful quarterbacks at the reins. Prescott scored three rushing touchdowns last week while throwing for 450 yards. He'll be an elite QB1 option again in Week 3 and needs to be started in all formats.

  • Dak Prescott Throws For 450 And Scores Three Times

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott led an amazing comeback in Week 2, beating the Atlanta Falcons 40-39. Prescott completed 34 of his 47 pass attempts for 450 yards and one touchdown. He added five carries for 18 yards and three touchdowns on the ground. It was an incredible performance for Prescott, who saw his team go down 20-0 in the first quarter and came all the way back for the last-second field goal victory. Prescott likely won many fantasy championships this week. He'll get a tougher defense in the Seahawks next week but should still be a QB1.

  • Dak Prescott Has An Excellent Week 2 Matchup

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has an excellent matchup in Week 2 against the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons Defense was torched for 322 passing yards and four passing touchdowns in Week 1 and the Falcons secondary looked helpless for most of the game. Prescott comes in as the overall QB3 this week and should be a lock for at worst one of the highest floors of the week. Combine that with a very high ceiling and you have a guy who should be started in any fantasy format despite his lackluster Week 1 performance.

  • Dak Prescott Mostly Held In Check In Week 1

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was mostly held in check by the Los Angeles Rams Defense in a Week 1 loss. Prescott completed 25 of his 39 passes for 266 yards and one touchdown. His touchdown came on a check down pass to Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott was able to add 30 yards on the ground, but took three sacks and was constantly under pressure. The Cowboys offensive line didn't look at all like the elite unit they've been over the past few seasons. Prescott played slightly worse than his line shows, as a lot of his yards came in catch-up mode in the fourth quarter. Still, he'll be one of the better fantasy quarterback options in what should be a high scoring game against the Falcons in Week 2.

  • Dak Prescott Ranked As The Third Best Week 1 Option

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is being ranked as the third best quarterback option for Week 1 lineups. He does have one of the widest ranges in predictions though, as many writers have him at or near number three, but some have him ranked as low as 16. With a new weapon in rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, Prescott could even improve on the numbers that made him the overall QB2 last season. Dak has never finished as anything but a QB1 for any season in his career, and there's no reason to think that will change this year either.

  • Dak Prescott Optimistic About A Long-Term Deal

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said that he is "optimistic" about coming to an agreement with the team on a long-term contract extension after this season. It seems the two sides never got too close to a deal in the offseason, as Prescott wanted more money and fewer years than the Cowboys were offering. He'll play under the franchise tag this year and could be tagged again next year if the two sides still can't agree, although next year's tag would cost the team $38 million.
