Cowboys QBs coach Wade Wilson insisted Dak Prescott is in no danger of experiencing a sophomore slump.
It is part of Wilson's job description to build Prescott up, keep in mind. "Nothing is too big for that kid," said Wilson, a former longtime NFL QB himself. "He’s improved strength-wise, flexibility-wise, speed-wise, quickness-wise, so he’s not resting on anything that went on last year." Prescott said he's taking on a more vocal leadership role after "just being quiet and trying to fit my way in" as a rookie. Prescott will again be a high-upside late-round quarterback target.

Associated Press named Cowboys QB Dak Prescott its 2016 Rookie of the Year.

It's a stunning upset over teammate Ezekiel Elliott. A fourth-round pick, Prescott led Dallas to a 13-win season as a rookie starter. He threw for 3,667 yards with a 23:4 TD/INT ratio and 67.8 completion percentage, rushing for an additional 282 yards and six touchdowns. Prescott received 28-of-50 votes, beating out Elliott by seven first-place votes. With Dallas moving on from Tony Romo this offseason, Prescott has firmly established himself as the Cowboys' franchise quarterback.
Feb 4 - 7:47 PM

Dak Prescott completed 24-of-38 passes for 302 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while adding 13 yards on two carries Sunday in the Cowboys' Divisional Round loss to the Packers.

Prescott made one rookie mistake on Sunday—Micah Hyde intercepted his errant screen pass to Cole Beasley in the third quarter. But aside from the pick, Prescott was as poised as any rookie quarterback we’ve seen in the postseason. He put Dallas on his back in the second half, chipping away at the Packers’ 18-point lead and eventually tying the game on a gutsy two-point conversion. Dak had his most success throwing to Dez Bryant, who snared nine-of-12 targets for two touchdowns and a season-high 132 yards. Both of Prescott's carries resulted in third-down conversions. The Cowboys’ decision to spike the ball on first down with under a minute remaining will be hotly debated, but ultimately that wasn’t Dak’s call. Prescott had an impossibly good rookie season, ousting mainstay Tony Romo from his pedestal as the team’s franchise quarterback. There’s no reason to think he’ll slow down anytime soon.
Jan 15 - 8:57 PM

Dak Prescott completed 4-of-8 attempts for 37 yards Week 17 against the Eagles.

Prescott saw two drives before ceding the reins to Tony Romo in the second quarter. It might have been two drives too many as he was under pressure on almost all of his dropbacks and took a big hit on his final pass of the game. Still, he came out of the meaningless game unscathed and will be ready to go when the Cowboys open their playoffs in the Divisional Round. Prescott finishes the regular season with a 67.8 percent completion rate, 3,667 passing yards, and a 23-to-4 TD-to-INT ratio while adding 273 yards and six touchdowns on the ground.
Jan 1 - 1:43 PM

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports all three quarterbacks will play for the Cowboys Sunday.

This was already expected, but it is nice to get a Sunday morning confirmation. Garafolo reports Tony Romo will follow Dak Prescott with Mark Sanchez on mop-up duty. Sanchez will likely end up playing the most snaps. All three can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
Jan 1 - 8:25 AM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Dak Prescott will get "some" work in Sunday's finale, and that Mark Sanchez will get "most" of the reps.

The Cowboys have been adamant they'll use their starters against the Eagles, but quick hooks with Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Dez Bryant make too much sense. The Cowboys have bigger fish to fry. Prescott won't be a recommended option in daily fantasy unless you think he can put up huge numbers as a contrarian play in what could be as little as one quarter of play. Per Rapsheet, the absence of LT Tyron Smith has contributed to the Cowboys' thinking on the matter.

Dak Prescott completed 15-of-20 passes for 212 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys' Week 16 win over the Lions.

Prescott has now completed at least 75 percent of his passes six times this season. He threw some absolute dimes against the Lions, starting it off with a frozen rope to Brice Butler for a 21-yard touchdown to end the first possession. Prescott's ball placement was exceptional, much like it has been all season. His other two touchdowns went to Dez Bryant, the first being a one-handed grab in the back of the end zone and the second a back-shoulder bullet at the goal line. Prescott didn't have to throw the ball in the fourth quarter with the Cowboys leading by 21. Ezekiel Elliott and Bryant were rested the final 15 minutes or so, but Prescott remained in since it's probably too awkward and a slap in the face of Tony Romo to put him in for garbage time. Prescott could be rested for the meaningless Week 17 finale at the Eagles.

Owner/GM Jerry Jones reiterated Friday that the Cowboys won't be resting any starters in Week 16 against the Lions.

The Cowboys have clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but Jones says he has learned from past experiences resting players and didn't like the results. "I know that in our (2007) season here with Wade Phillips, we had a great season and then we turned around and got into the playoffs and rested pretty good the last ballgame. And we ended up losing the first playoff game that we had with home-field bye all the way through," said Jones. "That's going to bear heavily our experience there with Wade in '07 will weigh heavily on any thoughts I have about who plays." Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott, and Dez Bryant are all safe to use in fantasy title week.

Dak Prescott completed 32-of-36 passes for 279 yards in Dallas' Week 15 win over the Bucs.

He also ran for 20 yards and a touchdown. Prescott rebounded after slumping in his last two starts. He put to rest any talk about Dallas turning back to Tony Romo. Prescott has been a QB1 in fantasy all season.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett left no doubt Monday that Dak Prescott will remain the starting quarterback over Tony Romo.

"You can make it as simple or complex as you want to make it," Garrett said. "It's pretty simple for us. Dak's going to play quarterback as we go forward." Jerry Jones said the same thing after Sunday night's loss to the Giants. Truth is, the Cowboys just played two of the toughest defenses in the league in road games back to back. Dak does get another tough matchup against the surging Bucs defense in Week 15, but we would expect him to bounce back for a strong game.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 04:56:00 PM

Jerry Jones said Tony Romo will not play unless Dak Prescott is injured.

"No, no, no. Not at all," Jones said when asked if Prescott could be benched for ineffectiveness. Prescott has not been as sharp the last several weeks and really struggled against the Giants Sunday night, but the Cowboys have hitched their wagon to the rookie signal caller. Unless Prescott goes down, he will be the starter the rest of the way.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 10:45:00 AM

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-37 passes for 165 yards a touchdown and two interceptions in Week 14 against the Giants.

Prescott hit a wide open Terrance Williams on play action for a 31-yard touchdown. His interceptions both came trying to force throws to Dez Bryant. Prescott struggled to get anything going downfield against the Giants secondary, with the touchdown his only big play. Prescott hasn’t thrown for multiple TDs passes in three straight weeks. He’ll be a QB2 against the Bucs in Week 15.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:37:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 12-of-18 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' 17-15, Week 13 win over the Vikings.

He added six carries for 37 yards, lost a fumble and committed second fumble late that the Cowboys were able to recover. It was probably Prescott's second worst start of the season, but it came in a victory all the same. Having trouble hitting big plays against the Vikings' elite defense, Prescott did manage to extend a few drives with his legs. The uninspiring performance was hardly all Dak's fault, and it was not a concerning outing. Prescott should bounce-back to QB1 status against the Giants next Sunday night.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 11:38:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-24 passes for 195 yards and one touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 12 win over the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

He also rushed for 39 yards and a second touchdown on eight attempts. Prescott couldn't get much cooking through the air, but what he did was enough to secure the victory in what turned out to be a shootout in the fourth quarter. The score was 17-6 at the end of three frames before an offensive eruption took place in the final 15 minutes, with the two teams combining for 34 points in a back-and-forth fourth. Prescott's touchdown throw was a strike to Terrance Williams in the front right corner of the end zone, as Williams did a great job dotting his toes inside the boundary. Prescott keeps rolling and will be a back-end QB1 in 10 days at the Vikings.
