Dak Prescott completed 13-of-18 passes for 183 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 28-17, Week 3 win over the Cardinals on Monday night, adding a 16 yards rushing and a third touchdown.
Dallas barely possessed the ball in the first 20 minutes of game action, going three-and-out on its first two possessions while watching the Cardinals string together two exhausting offensive drives. Prescott went into the half with just 25 scoreless yards passing and the 10-yard rushing score. After the break, though, Prescott was a man on fire. He was making incredible throws, especially while on the move, hitting Brice Butler for a beautiful 37-yard score on the run. Butler later caught a 53-yard bomb from Prescott to set up an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown to seal the win. Prescott's other touchdown was a short score to Dez Bryant, who powered through half the Arizona defense on his way to the goal line. Prescott will be a mid-to-low QB1 next week at home against the Rams. Sep 25 - 11:52 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dak Prescott is not limited by his ankle injury.

Garrett said the quarterback picked up the injury during the Week 2 loss to the Broncos, but it never seemed to be a serious issue. Prescott should be good to go for Monday night's matchup with the Cardinals.

Jerry Jones said Dak Prescott (ankle) will be ready for Week 3.

"He is going to be able to play Monday," Jones said. There never seemed to be much concern about Prescott's status, but it is still good to hear. Prescott will be a low-end QB1 against the Cardinals on Monday night.
Sep 19 - 10:16 AM

Coach Jason Garrett revealed Dak Prescott suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Denver.

Garrett said Prescott was "doing well" after Sunday's game and again this morning, so it doesn't sound like much of an issue at all. The Cowboys continue a brutally difficult stretch to open the season with a Week 3 trip to Arizona.
Sep 18 - 4:52 PM

Dak Prescott completed 30-of-50 passes for 238 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

His second interception was a 102-yard pick-six in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Prescott's first touchdown came following a fumble by Trevor Siemian put the Cowboys in good field position. Without establishing a run game, Prescott struggled to push the ball downfield, averaging a woeful 4.8 yards per attempt. He wasn't under pressure often, but most of his receivers struggled to gain separation five yards beyond the line of scrimmage. The Cowboys have played against two extremely difficult defenses in the Giants and Broncos, so it's still too early to draw any dramatic conclusions about the offense. Prescott will be a borderline QB1 for next week's game against the Cardinals.
Sep 17 - 9:03 PM

Dak Prescott completed 24-of-39 passes for 268 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 1 win over the Giants.

Prescott didn't need to do much with Dallas playing with a lead the entire game. He had no turnovers and continued to build off his highly efficient preseason. Prescott's only touchdown was a red-zone pass to Jason Witten. He wasn't a major factor in the run game, but added 24 yards on three carries. Prescott will have another tough matchup against Denver in Week 2.
Sep 10 - 11:29 PM

Dak Prescott completed 11-of-14 passes for 113 yards and a touchdown and rushed twice for eight yards in the Cowboys' third preseason game.

Unlikely to play in next week's exhibition finale, Prescott was extremely efficient this preseason, going 18-of-22 passing for 219 yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers. The Cowboys are going to ask more of Dak this year with Ezekiel Elliott facing a six-game suspension. The lone concern on Prescott's fantasy profile is his brutal Weeks 1-3 schedule against the Giants, Broncos, and Cardinals to start things off. Ultimately, we expect Prescott to build on his record-setting rookie campaign with an even more productive sophomore season.
Aug 26 - 10:04 PM

Dak Prescott completed 7-of-8 passes for 106 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys’ third preseason game.

It was Prescott’s first action of the preseason. Six of his seven completions went for first downs as he led the Cowboys on a 95-yard scoring drive to open the game that ended with him hitting Dez Bryant on a 32-yard touchdown. He then led a 58-yard drive on his second and final possession that ended in a red zone turnover by Darren McFadden. Prescott remains a high-floor starting quarterback in fantasy leagues entering the season.
Aug 19 - 7:48 PM

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.
