Dak Prescott said he doesn't think the Cowboys need a No. 1 receiver.
"I don’t know if any team in the league necessarily needs a No. 1 receiver," said Prescott. "It’s about getting the ball out, spreading the ball around, keeping the defense on its toes." The 2016 Rookie of the Year never quite clicked with Dez Bryant, which could have been a factor in the team cutting him this offseason. Now Prescott is left with a paper-thin receiving corps featuring free agent signing Allen Hurns, Terrance Williams, slot receiver Cole Beasley and third-round rookie Michael Gallup. Dak is going as a mid-range QB2 in early mock drafts. May 25 - 4:30 PM

The Dallas Morning News considers Dak Prescott a candidate for an extension next offseason.

Prescott is coming off a down 2017, but the Cowboys still view him as their franchise quarterback. "At that position, it is what it is," EVP Stephen Jones said on Prescott potentially landing a $100 million contract. "We all see what some of the other guys who aren't Aaron Rodgers are earning. He's going to do well." This is a vote of confidence after Prescott regressed in the second half of last year. Prescott is signed through 2019 but Dallas may extend him after this season if he rebounds.
May 9 - 7:04 PM

Dak Prescott completed 17-of-30 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Eagles.

After a strong start, Prescott faded in the second half, finishing with an 8:9 TD/INT ratio over the final eight games. Outside of his rushing stats, he took a step back across the board from his rookie year. With a full season of Ezekiel Elliott, Prescott is set up for a better 2018, but he's not a top-15 quarterback. Dallas should look to improve Prescott's supporting cast this offseason.

Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News confirms the Cowboys will play their starters against the Eagles in Week 17.

Last week's loss to Seattle eliminated Dallas from the postseason, giving the Cowboys with nothing to play for this week. Despite the lack of stakes, the Cowboys will be out in full force Sunday at Philadelphia. That includes Ezekiel Elliott who is 120 yards shy of 1,000 for the season. Dak Prescott is also looking to end 2017 on a high note after struggling through a difficult second half. Unfortunately he'll be playing without stud left tackle Tyron Smith, who was placed on I.R. with a knee injury earlier this week.

Dak Prescott completed 21-of-34 passes for 182 yards and two interceptions while contributing 21 yards on four carries Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 16 loss to the Seahawks.

He was sacked four times for a loss of 27 yards. It just wasn’t Dak’s day. Prescott struggled to 76 yards on 10-of-18 passing in the first half and was somehow worse after halftime, throwing two interceptions including an inexcusable pick-six to Justin Coleman early in the third quarter. His second interception was the result of a Dez Bryant drop, though the pass wasn't exactly on target. Prescott finally had Ezekiel Elliott back this week, but obviously it didn’t make much of a difference. His longest completion came on an improvised 33-yard pass to Bryant, who made an excellent diving catch. In Prescott’s defense, he played almost the entire afternoon without stud left tackle, Tyron Smith, who aggravated a knee injury just three snaps into Sunday’s game. Now eliminated from the postseason, the Cowboys will finish the year in Philadelphia on New Year’s Eve.

Dak Prescott completed 18-of-27 passes for 212 yards and two interceptions in Week 15 against the Raiders.

He added six carries for 32 yards and a rushing touchdown. Prescott got off to a bad start, throwing an interception on the opening drive. He threw a second interception on the Cowboys’ first drive of the second half before settling down. Prescott’s rushing TD was on a broken play from five yards out. Outside of last week's win, Prescott has struggled without Ezekiel Elliott, averaging just 191 YPG with a 5:5 TD/INT ratio over his last six games. Prescott won't be more than a QB2 in Week 16 against Seattle.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 11:58:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-30 passes for 332 yards and three touchdowns while adding 13 yards on six carries Sunday in the Cowboys’ Week 14 win over the Giants.

Prescott wasn't sacked and his 332 yards were a career-high. This was easily Prescott’s best game since Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension went into effect early last month. Dak had a relatively quiet first three quarters but exploded for two touchdowns in the final period including an 81-yarder to running back Rod Smith to seal the game with just over four minutes remaining. Prescott’s other highlights included a 50-yard touchdown strike to Dez Bryant and a 54-yard screen pass to Cole Beasley. He also connected with Jason Witten for a 20-yard score in the fourth quarter. Prescott seems to have weathered his first career slump and should be safe to fire up as a QB1 next week in a plush matchup against the Raiders on Sunday Night Football.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dak Prescott (hand) is "good to go" for Week 14 against the Giants.

Prescott hasn't topped 179 passing yards in a game since Week 9, but he's coming off easily his best fantasy day of the past month last week against Washington. He threw two touchdowns while playing through a swollen right (throwing) hand. With 10 days to recover, Prescott is ready to roll for Sunday's tilt with the Giants. Prescott gets a good matchup as a back-end QB1.

Dak Prescott said his injured hand is "fine."

Prescott injured his throwing (right) hand after making contact with Josh Harvey-Clemons' helmet in Thursday's win over Washington. He went to the sideline to get his hand wrapped but didn't end up missing any snaps. Dak's hand appeared noticeably swollen, though his X-rays came back negative. He has nine days to get ready for next week's game against the Giants.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 11:32:00 AM

Dak Prescott completed 11-of-22 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 38-14, Week 13 win over the Redskins, adding five carries for 28 additional yards.

The touchdowns were Prescott's first in four games without Ezekiel Elliott. His receivers were still struggling mightily for separation. The difference tonight was the Cowboys' offensive line reverting to its dominant ways and clearing huge holes for Alfred Morris. Prescott's scores were tight numbers to Jason Witten and Dez Bryant in the end zone. Prescott received a first half scare when he injured his throwing hand. He underwent locker room X-rays that came back negative. He ended up never missing a play, and now has 10 days to heal up for Week 14 against the Giants.

Dak Prescott completed 20-of-27 passes for 179 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Cowboys' 28-6, Week 12 loss to the Chargers on Thanksgiving.

Prescott has been held under 180 yards passing in all three games without Ezekiel Elliott this month. Rod Smith's late-game touchdown run was the Cowboys' first visit to the end zone since early Week 10. Prescott did have a long touchdown run, but it was wiped out on a blatant hold by LT Tyron Smith, and he threw a 90-yard pick-six to Desmond King in the fourth quarter on a play he didn't see a wide-open Jason Witten in the end zone. Prescott, even in a prime spot, will be hard to trust as a fantasy play next Thursday night against the Redskins.
Thu, Nov 23, 2017 07:27:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 18-of-31 passes 145 yards and three interceptions in Week 11 against the Eagles.

He was sacked four times and had a fumble returned for a touchdown. It was Prescott's worst game of the season. The Cowboys' offense has went into the tank with LT Tyron Smith sidelined. Prescott has been held under 200 yards in three of the last four weeks and will be more of a QB2 play against the Chargers on Thanksgiving.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 11:39:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards in Week 10 against the Falcons.

Prescott faced constant pressure with LT Tyron Smith sidelined, taking eight sacks. He was forced to make plays out the pocket, running for a season-high 42 yards and a touchdown. Prescott didn't have any interceptions, but fumbled late behind shaky pass protection. This should go down as one of his worst games of the season. The Cowboys offense could be in trouble if Smith doesn't return in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 12, 2017 07:28:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 21-of-33 passes for 249 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 28-17, Week 9 win over the Chiefs, adding three carries for 27 yards and an additional score.

Prescott has now posted at least three touchdowns in 5-of-8 starts. Instead of regressing on his stellar rookie campaign, he's become a legitimate superstar. With the season at its halfway point, Prescott is on pace for 40 total scores. Dallas' sensational sophomore signal caller gets the struggling Falcons in Week 10.
Sun, Nov 5, 2017 07:27:00 PM

Dak Prescott completed 14-of-22 passes for 143 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Cowboys' 33-19, Week 8 win over the Redskins.

With the rain driving and wind swirling in Washington D.C., Prescott had his quietest game of 2017. His job was to stick the ball in Ezekiel Elliott's gut. He did 33 times as the Cowboys ran over the Redskins on offense and abused their injury-ruined offensive line on defense. Prescott has a golden fantasy outlook for Week 9, where the Cowboys will be hosting shootout-machine Kansas City.
