  • Dak Prescott Tosses Two Touchdowns, Two Picks On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed 21 of 30 passes for 261 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions during Thursday's win over the New York Giants. He also rushed for four yards in the contest. Although Prescott wasn't able to replicate the production from his last three games, he still turned in a solid contest and has asserted himself as a stable QB1 in fantasy football rest-of-season. That valuation holds true heading into Week 13 against the Indianapolis Colts.

  • Dak Prescott Should Be A QB1 On Thanksgiving

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott should once again be a strong choice in the yearly Thanksgiving game for the Cowboys. Prescott has been a top nine fantasy quarterback in all of his past three games, and should be once again despite a matchup against a solid New York Giants defense. The Dallas offense is clicking, and a lot of that is thanks to Prescott.

  • Dak Prescott Excellent In Week 11 Blowout

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was excellent in a Week 11 blowout win over the Minnesota Vikings. Prescott completed 22 of his 25 pass attempts for 276 yards and two touchdowns. He added three rushes for 16 additional yards. Prescott was incredibly accurate and built up enough of a lead that he left the game early for Cooper Rush to make five pass attempts of his own. The Cowboys will face the Giants on Thanksgiving, where Dak will be an easy QB1 option.

  • Dak Prescott Back To Being An Excellent Option In Week 11

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is an excellent fantasy option in a Week 11 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. In his last two games, Prescott has been the overall fantasy QB4 and QB7, with a bye week in between. The Cowboys offense is clicking, and the matchup against the Vikings could be one of the bigger shootouts of the week, making Prescott an easy QB1 option with top-tier upside.

  • Dak Prescott Tosses Three Touchdowns In A Week 10 Loss

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes in a Week 10 overtime loss to the Green Bay Packers. Prescott completed 27 of his 46 pass attempts for 265 yards and the three scores, throwing two interceptions and taking two sacks. He added four rushes for just six yards total. It wasn't Prescott at his best, but he played well enough to win, leading the Cowboys to a 14-point lead in the second half before the Packers were able to come back and win on an overtime field goal. Prescott and wide receiver CeeDee Lamb showed excellent chemistry, and Dak should remain in the QB1 ranks going forward.

  • Dak Prescott A Good Week 10 Choice Despite A Tough Matchup

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a solid Week 10 fantasy option despite a tough matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Prescott was fine in his first game back from injury then much better in his second before the Cowboys took their bye week. Coming off the bye, Prescott should be viewed as an every week QB1, even facing the Packers defense, who has been the second best unit against opposing fantasy quarterbacks. Prescott falls somewhere in the QB7-10 range for Week 10.

  • Dak Prescott Looks Like His Old Self In Week 8 Win

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott looked like his old self in a Week 8 win over the Chicago Bears. Prescott attempted 27 passes, completing 21 of them for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. He only took one sack and added five carries for 34 yards and another touchdown on the ground. The Cowboys head into their bye week, but Prescott should be consistently back in the QB1 ranks starting in Week 10.

  • Dak Prescott Should Be Back On Track In Week 8

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott should be able to get back on track as a fantasy QB1 in a Week 8 matchup against the Chicago Bears. Prescott looked healthy and solid in his Week 7 return, but he wasn't really given a chance to turn it loose and pile up numbers, as he attempted just 25 passes and finished as the fantasy QB18. With Ezekiel Elliott (knee) likely to miss the game, Dak may have to throw a bit more often against a Bears team that is 25th against the deep ball and dead last in blitz rate. Prescott should have time to throw and might put up his first QB1 week of the season.

  • Dak Prescott Ready For Week 7 Return

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) has "looked the part" in practice this week and is all systems go for Week 7 against the Detroit Lions after fracturing his right thumb in the season opener. Prescott has practiced in full all week and shouldn't have any issues with his grip on the football in his return to the starting role for the Cowboys. Backup Cooper Rush was great in Prescott's absence and led the team to a 4-1 record, but Prescott gives this offense much more upside in all facets of the game. Against a porous Lions defense this Sunday, Prescott should immediately be returned to all starting lineups as a midrange QB1 with upside in his first game back.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb), who put in another full practice on Thursday, said he is starting in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions and won't wear a brace on his surgically repaired finger. He might wear KT tap, but he won't have any limitations with his grip on the football. The Cowboys coaching staff hasn't yet confirmed that Prescott is starting this Sunday, but all signs point to him returning for the first time since fracturing a finger on his right hand in the season opener. All of Dallas' offensive skill players will receive a fantasy boost with the return of the 29-year-old signal-caller, who will be in play as a midrange QB1 in his first game back this weekend.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) was listed as a full participant in Wednesday's walkthrough and has been medically cleared to return in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Prescott threw 40-to-50 passes on Wednesday and is expected to partake in a full, padded practice on Thursday. The 29-year-old signal-caller has not seen the field since Week 1, but the Cowboys were still able to put together a 4-1 record in his absence with Cooper Rush at the helm. Despite Rush's success, Prescott should be seen as an upgrade to all of Dallas' offensive weapons for fantasy purposes.

  • Dak Prescott Remains On Track To Practice Wednesday

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) has been out since the season-opener with a thumb injury. The team made a statement last week that this Sunday's game against the Lions will be his anticipated return to action. Earlier this week, head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters the 29-year-old would participate in practice on Wednesday, which remains the plan based on the most recent report. The Cowboys managed a 4-1 record with Cooper Rush at the helm, putting them in a great position to compete for a wild-card spot. Prescott's return would be an upgrade for the entire offense, especially wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup. He would also slot back in as a top-12 option himself.

  • Dak Prescott Expected To Practice Wednesday

    Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) is expected to be cleared on Monday or Tuesday by the medical staff and then return to practice on Wednesday. This Sunday will be the six-week mark for Prescott after he fractured his right thumb in the season opener. Cooper Rush went 4-1 in Prescott's absence, but the Cowboys are expected to go back to Prescott as their starter in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, barring a setback at practice this week. The 29-year-old will immediately re-enter QB1 territory against a Lions defense that has been generous to opposing QBs so far this year. Prescott's return will also elevate both the fantasy ceiling and floor of all of Dallas' offensive skill players.

  • Dak Prescott Plans To Play In Week 7

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) plans to make his return to the field during next week's matchup against the Detroit Lions. The 29-year-old hasn't played since Week 1, but has been steadily making progress. Prescott mentions the plan is for him to start against in Week 7, but he needs to wait and see what the doctor says. He threw before Sunday's game and said he felt good afterwards. Fantasy managers who have been patiently holding Prescott might finally get to plug him back into their lineups. It sounds like Prescott is back as along as he doesn't suffer any setbacks.

  • Dak Prescott Officially Inactive For Sunday Night

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) is officially inactive for the NFC East clash with Philadelphia. The veteran practiced sparingly during the week and is seemingly nearing a return. However, he's not ready, meaning Cooper Rush will remain under center on Sunday night. The 28-year-old has played well this season while filling in for Prescott, throwing for 839 yards, four touchdowns, and no picks. On the downside, he's completed just 61% of his throws. With that said, Rush is expected to have CeeDee Lamb (hip) in the lineup, so the signal-caller could still serve useful for those playing deep multi-quarterback setups.

  • Dak Prescott Is Extremely Close To Returning

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) is going to miss the Week 6 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, it appears Prescott is extremely close to getting back on the field. He still has some work to do, but is expected to take the practice field on Wednesday. There is a chance that Prescott is ready to return in Week 7, assuming everything goes right for him. This is good news for the Cowboys and fantasy managers who have been patiently holding onto Prescott. It sounds like Cooper Rush might only need to start one more game for Dallas.

  • Dak Prescott Will Miss Another Game

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) won't play on Sunday night against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The veteran is seemingly trending in the right direction, although he must improve even more before he's ready to practice. As a result, Cooper Rush will be back under center in Week 6. The signal-caller has played well while filling in for Prescott this season, amassing 839 yards and four touchdowns. While Rush is expected to have CeeDee Lamb (hip), he could have a rough road ahead, so managers may want to consider other fantasy quarterback.

  • Dak Prescott Officially Questionable For Week 6

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) has missed the past four games due to a thumb injury and will have a chance to suit up for the team's Week 6 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Head coach Mike McCarthy has stated that he is preparing for Cooper Rush to start on Sunday night, so Prescott will likely return to action at home in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Although Prescott has been ramping up his activity in practice, it makes sense that the Cowboys would opt to play it safe this week as they are currently 4-0 with Rush under center this season. Fantasy managers should plan to be without the two-time Pro Bowler at least once more.

  • Dak Prescott In "Regeneration" Mode

    Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said that quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) did a little more throwing than scheduled on Thursday and is in "regeneration" mode on Friday. Prescott will throw more before the team's Sunday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles as he works his way back from a fractured right thumb suffered in the season opener. Backup Cooper Rush will get another start against the 5-0 Eagles this weekend, but there's a good chance Prescott will make his return in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, depending on how he progresses in practice next week. Prescott's return will elevate the fantasy value of all the team's offensive skill players.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice. It was the 29-year-old's first time practicing since injuring his thumb. Prescott said he felt "great" after his first throwing session on Wednesday after right thumb surgery. He is progressing but is not expected to start Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys are 4-0 with Cooper Rush under center and won't rush Prescott back from his thumb injury. Prescott will likely return in Week 7 against the Detroit Lions, while Rush will draw one more start in Week 6 against Philadelphia.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) said he felt "great" after his first throwing session on Wednesday since having right thumb surgery. Prescott plans to throw more on Thursday. "Solid. Ask the receivers," Prescott said. "I always got some pop on my (passes)." The 29-year-old is making progress, but he won't make the start in Week 6 on Sunday Night Football against the Philadelphia Eagles. But if he continues to progress heading into next week, there's a good chance that Prescott will make his return for the first time since the season opener in a Week 7 matchup against the Detroit Lions. With backup Cooper Rush going 4-0 in Prescott's absence, it has afforded the Cowboys the ability to be extra cautious with Prescott's recovery.

  • Dak Prescott Won't Start In Week 6

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) will not start in Week 6 on Sunday night against the division-rival Philadelphia Eagles because he's not fully healthy yet. Cooper Rush's success in Prescott's absence has nothing to do with the fact that Prescott won't play this weekend. Prescott is scheduled to do some light throwing at practice on Wednesday for the first time since fracturing his right thumb in the season opener, but he won't play until at least Week 7 against the Detroit Lions. Rush has mostly been a game manager for Dallas in Prescott's absence, but he's gone a perfect 4-0. He'll continue to serve as a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues against the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

  • Dak Prescott To Throw On Wednesday

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team will have a better idea on quarterback Dak Prescott's (thumb) status when he starts throwing in practice on Wednesday. Prescott has been making good progress from a fractured right thumb suffered in the season opener, but he was unable to grip a football properly last week. There's a chance that he could return in Week 6 to face the 5-0 Philadelphia Eagles, but it will depend on how he looks in practice this week. And with Cooper Rush going 4-0 in Prescott's absence, the Cowboys are unlikely to throw Prescott in there unless he's 100 percent. Continue to keep an eye on Prescott's progress this week at practice. He'll be more of a low-end QB1 option for fantasy managers if he makes his return this weekend.

All the while, Dallas should not feel compelled to rush him back into action too soon considering Cooper Rush has led the team to three consecutive wins. However, when Prescott does return, he should be viewed as a low-end QB1 in fantasy football.

  • Dak Prescott Ruled Out For Week 5

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) has officially been ruled out for Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams. Prescott's injured thumb still isn't strong enough to grip a football, so he'll miss his fourth straight game. However, barring any setbacks, there's a good chance that the 29-year-old will return to start in the Week 6 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. As long as backup Cooper Rush continues to play well -- he's gone 3-0 with Prescott sidelined -- the Cowboys will have the option to be extra cautious with Prescott's recovery. Rush will be a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues this weekend against a strong Rams pass rush.

Prescott will continue to be present, but he's not at a point of being involved in practice in a substantial way. It's highly unlikely that the 29-year-old signal-caller will return in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams, but barring any setbacks this week, he has a realistic shot to return in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Owner Jerry Jones said earlier this week that Prescott isn't at the point where he can grip the football yet to be able to play in a game. It will be Cooper Rush looking to go 4-0 in Prescott's absence this Sunday.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) currently isn't able to grip the football "well enough to play" with his surgically repaired right thumb, according to owner Jerry Jones on 105.3 The Fan. It means that it's unlikely that Prescott will make his return in Week 5 against the Los Angeles Rams. The most likely scenario is that the 29-year-old signal-caller will return in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles after he fractured his right thumb in the season opener. Hopefully he'll continue to progress in his recovery this week so that he'll be available to the Cowboys in Week 6. Cooper Rush has gone 3-0 in Prescott's absence, but he'll continue to be nothing more than a low-end QB2 in superflex leagues this weekend against a tough Rams defense.

Prescott hasn't played since the season opener when he totaled 14 completions, 134 yards, and one interception before exiting early. The 29-year-old had stitches removed from his thumb and began throwing a football this past week, so he is definitely on the right track. However, the Cowboys will make the final call on his availability and they want to make sure he is nearly 100 percent before inserting him back into the offense.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott's fractured right thumb no longer has any swelling and is healing properly after he had his stitches removed. He told NFL Network's Jane Slater that the Week 5 game against the Los Angeles Rams is a game that he could possibly start. Slater gets the sense that Prescott would go in Week 4 against the Washington Commanders if he could, but the Cowboys will be smart with their starting signal-caller. The 29-year-old hasn't played since the season opener when he fractured his right thumb, but he's made excellent progress and his return is on the horizon. However, Dallas is now 2-0 with Cooper Rush taking over and they won't be in a rush to bring Prescott back too soon. Prescott should be stashed in all fantasy formats, as he'll most certainly be back as the starter under center when the Cowboys deem he is ready.

So, I think it stops right there." Jones said that the team could have a QB controversy if Rush continues winning while Prescott recovers from a fractured right thumb. Prescott wasn't placed on Injured Reserve after getting hurt in Week 1, so he has a shot to return in Week 5. Rush is merely a desperation low-end QB2 in superflex leagues until Prescott returns.

Prescott will slowly build back up his football activities with the hope of being ready to go in Week 4 or 5, according to the team. Dallas didn't put him on Injured Reserve after he fractured his right thumb in the season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and they were hopeful then that he'd return within four weeks.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott makes for a solid starting QB option in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Bucs. Prescott was the QB9 in fantasy scoring last season and should be in for a similar season again in 2022. He ran the ball much less last season, but with a diminished offensive line, he may end up running (for his life) a little more often this season. Still, with a strong group of pass catchers lining up alongside him, Dak should be a QB1 most weeks, including in Week 1 despite a somewhat tough matchup.

  • Tyler Smith Expected To Start At Left Tackle

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said "it's safe to say" that rookie first-round offensive tackle Tyler Smith will be the starting left tackle in Week 1 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Tyron Smith (hamstring, knee) out until at least December. Smith returned to practice on Monday after sitting out last week with a sprained ankle. Dallas selected the 21-year-old in the first round with visions of Smith becoming their left tackle of the future, but he'll have to step in sooner than expected. It's certainly a downgrade for the Cowboys offensive line and quarterback Dak Prescott, but Smith certainly has the ability to succeed right away.
