  • Dak Prescott Has A Mediocre Day In Week 3 Loss

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had a mediocre performance in a Week 3 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Prescott attempted 40 passes, completing 25 of them for 249 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He added 24 yards on the ground with three carries and took two sacks. It was an uninspiring performance for Prescott and the Cowboys against a previously winless Arizona team. Week 4 against the Patriots will be a chance for the Cowboys to get back on track.

  • Dak Prescott Has A Great Week 3 Matchup

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has a great on-paper matchup in Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals. Prescott has put up just 26 fantasy points through the first two weeks, but he's been playing well. Game script in Week 1 limited him to just 13 completions. He's been throwing short passes, ranking low in yards per attempt, average depth of target, and other similar metrics, but with the Cardinals defense coughing up plenty of big plays already this season, we could see Prescott go off in Week 3. There's also the chance that the Cowboys defense dominates again and their offense ends up not needing to do much, so that risk places Prescott in the QB2 conversation, but with QB1 upside.

  • Dak Prescott Plays Very Well In A Week 2 Win

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott played very well in a Week 2 win over the New York Jets. Prescott wasn't asked to do much in the Week 1 slaughter of the Giants, but he did a lot more against the Jets. He completed 31 of his 38 pass attempts for 255 yards and two touchdowns. He added six rushes for 14 yards total, and only took one sack for a seven yard loss. The Cowboys elite defense should consistently give the offense chances to score on short fields. Prescott should be a solid option again in Week 3 when the Cowboys take on the Cardinals in Arizona.

  • Dak Prescott - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott disappointed his fantasy managers in Week 1 and may do so again in Week 2. In Week 1, Prescott simply didn't need to do much of anything as the Cowboys defense dominated the New York Giants en route to a 40-0 win. In Week 2, they'll face the New York Jets, who are likely to struggle on offense but should be able to play a much stronger game on the defensive side. Dak will always have some upside, but he has a very low ceiling in this matchup, making him a mid-range QB2 option at best.

  • Dak Prescott Able To Game Manage Through Week 1

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott didn't need to do much in an easy 40-0 Week 1 win over the New York Giants. With the Cowboys up 26-0 at halftime mostly due to plays on defense and special teams, Prescott was not called upon to do much and was even replaced by backup Cooper Rush for most of the fourth quarter. In total, Dak attempted 24 passes, completing 14 of them for 143 yards. He ran the ball just once, gaining six yards. In the few moments when he needed to make a throw, Prescott looked good, and he should have much stronger performances going forward, starting in Week 2 against the New York Jets.

  • Dak Prescott A Decent Option In Week 1

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a decent option in a Week 1 matchup against the division rival New York Giants. Prescott played in one game against the Giants last season and threw for 261 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. With a new offensive system and some new faces on the field around him, it remains to be seen how Prescott adapts this season. The acquisition of Trey Lance may put Prescott in a bit of a hotter seat than he's used to, but he figures to still have plenty of leeway. Dak is a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 for the first game of the season.

  • Cowboys Expect Dak Prescott To Be Around A "Long Time"

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that the team expects quarterback Dak Prescott to be "with us a long time." Prescott's current deal expires after the 2024 season, and he'll carry a $59.4 million salary cap figure next year. It doesn't look like the two sides will come to an agreement on a new deal before Week 1 of the regular season kicks off. There's a little more heat on Prescott now after his disappointing 2022 campaign and the fact that the Cowboy recently traded for former first-rounder Trey Lance several weeks ago. Still, it would be surprising if Prescott didn't eventually sign a new deal to remain in Dallas for the foreseeable future beyond 2024. Entering this year, he's a low-end QB1 for fantasy managers.

    Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Terence Steele has agreed to a five-year, $86.8 million extension, according to Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News. The deal includes $50 million guaranteed with a max value of $91.8 million. This is a massive accomplishment for Steele, who started 13 games before tearing his ACL last season. It also gives Dallas long-term offensive line help for Dak Prescott, Tony Pollard, and additional playmakers.

  • Cowboys Acquire Trey Lance From 49ers

    Headshot for Sam Darnold

    The Dallas Cowboys acquired former third overall pick, quarterback Trey Lance, from the San Francisco 49ers on Friday in exchange for a fourth-round draft pick, according to sources. The writing was on the wall for Lance to find a new home after the Niners announced Sam Darnold as Brock Purdy's backup earlier this week. The Cowboys have Dak Prescott locked in as their starter under center, but the presence of Lance will put some pressure on him to bounce back from a frustrating season in 2022. For now, the 23-year-old Lance will try to continue improving while battling with Cooper Rush for the backup job in his new digs. Until further notice, Lance remains off the fantasy radar in redraft leagues, and his long-term appeal may have only slightly improved with the move to Dallas.

  • Jake Ferguson Could Have Significant Role

    Headshot for Jake Ferguson

    Dallas Cowboys second-year tight end Jake Ferguson's stock has taken a noticeable upturn during training camp, according to The Athletic's Saad Yousuf. Ferguson will be taking over No. 1 tight end duties in Dallas this year after the departure of Dalton Schultz, who was one of quarterback Dak Prescott's favorite targets. The 24-year-old caught 19 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games (eight starts) in his rookie year in 2022 and has built on his role this summer. If Ferguson continues to earn Prescott's trust in 2023, he could be a high-volume piece in a stacked offensive skill group. He'll probably go undrafted in most standard-sized fantasy leagues, but Ferguson could become a popular streamer by the end of the year if he continues to improve. Prescott has even labeled Ferguson as a potential breakout player this season.

  • Zack Martin Restructures Deal, Ends Holdout

    Headshot for Tony Pollard

    The Dallas Cowboys and All-Pro offensive guard Zack Martin reached an agreement on a restructured deal on Monday that will allow Martin to end his holdout in training camp and return to the team. Martin will now make $18 million in each of the next two seasons as one of the best guards in the league. The 32-year-old veteran former 16th overall pick in 2014 out of Notre Dame has made the Pro Bowl in eight of his nine NFL seasons and has also been an All-Pro six times for the Cowboys. Martin's return at camp is excellent news for quarterback Dak Prescott, running back Tony Pollard and the entire Cowboys offense heading into the 2023 regular season in early September.

  • Dak Prescott Unlikely To Play In Preseason

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is not expected to suit up during the preseason. Head coach Mike McCarthy says he hasn't made his final decision, but it sounds unlikely that Prescott does suit up. The Cowboys have high playoff aspirations, so they want to keep the seven-year veteran healthy. It's worth noting that the Cowboys do have a new offensive coordinator in Brian Schottenheimer. Despite that, the organization is hopeful they will work through the kinks and won't need to expose Prescott to any exhibition games.

  • Zack Martin Fails To Report To Start Of Training Camp

    Headshot for Tony Pollard

    Dallas Cowboys guard Zack Martin did not report to the start of Dallas Cowboys training camp Tuesday. The elite offensive lineman has been unhappy with the organization's lack of willingness to give him a raise, so this could be an extended holdout worth monitoring. Martin is an eight-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro selection but has an average salary that ranks ninth among all offensive guards ($14 million.) In all likelihood, Martin is looking to get closer to what Atlanta Falcons guard Chris Lindstrom ($20.5 million) and Indianapolis Colts guard Quenton Nelson ($20 million) are making on a per-season basis. Martin's absence would leave a major hole in an aging Cowboys offensive line unit that could negatively impact Dak Prescott and Tony Pollard.

  • Dak Prescott Plans On Reducing Interception Total

    Headshot for Dak Prescott

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott had 15 interceptions thrown last year, which was tied for the NFL lead in just 12 games played. Entering his eighth year in the league, Prescott said that he is going to reduce his number of turnovers in 2023. "I won't have 10 interceptions this year," Prescott said. "I know who I am, and you can go back and take away half of those off drops. I'm not saying it's on the receiver, but if you cut that in half then we start talking about those, nobody is talking about it." The addition of receiver Brandin Cooks will certainly help the Dallas passing attack stretch out opposing defenses, but fantasy managers sure aren't going to be ecstatic to draft Prescott as anything more than a low-end QB1 with limited rushing upside at the position.

    Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott says he feels a sense of urgency as he enters his age-30 season. The former fourth round pick has put together a strong career with Offensive Rookie of the Year honors and two Pro Bowls under his belt as well. Prescott has helped the Cowboys make the postseason four times in the last seven years. Despite that, Prescott knows he's not getting younger and the stakes are rising for him to win a Super Bowl. The good news is, the Cowboys have a solid young core of players, so they should be able to compete. We'll see if Prescott will be able to get over the hump this time around.
