Cowboys QB Dak Prescott gave his take on the health of WR Michael Gallup. “[He’s] starting to come back into who Michael Gallup is and feel himself. That’s a guy that I’ve got a lot of trust in," Prescott said. "He’s getting his feet under him, and he’s going to be better.” Gallup tore his ACL in early January, 2022, and labored through last season. Dallas added Brandin Cooks over the offseason, but Gallup profiles as a low-risk flier at WR79 in ADP.

ESPN’s Dan Graziano believes Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will sign an extension this offseason. Dak is under contract through the 2024 season, but his cap number rockets from $26.8 million (2023) to $59.5 million in 2024. “Cowboys leadership has been very clear, publicly and privately, that they're all-in with Dak," Graziano writes. “They want him to be a Cowboy for his entire career.” Prescott, who turns 30 in July, projects as a low-end QB1 for 2023.

The Cowboys are getting WR Brandin Cooks from the Texans for a fifth-round pick in 2023 and a sixth-rounder in 2024, according to multiple reports. Dallas likely views Cooks as the new No. 2 WR, ahead of Michael Gallup. We wouldn't bet on him beating CeeDee Lamb in target share. Cooks is coming off a disappointing 2022 that saw his receptions per game, yards per game and catch rate fall significantly vs. his previous two Houston campaigns. He managed just a WR40 finish in PPR points per game. But we're not betting that the 29-year-old (until Sept. 25) is over the hill just yet. If the team change doesn't boost Cooks' ADP too much vs. his current low-WR4 position, he's a solid-to-good option for your best ball drafts. Cooks' arrival also helps QB Dak Prescott, who sits low in QB1 territory in best ball ADP. As for the Houston WR corps: Try not to get too excited about anyone. The Texans signed Robert Woods to a two-year deal this offseason. Nico Collins has averaged just 2.9 receptions per game through two NFL seasons. And 2022 second-round pick John Metchie is expected to debut after missing his rookie year for leukemia treatment. The whole group should at least get a new QB next month via the NFL Draft.

The Cowboys named Brian Schottenheimer their new OC. He spent this past season in Dallas as an offensive consultant. HC Mike McCarthy is expected to take over play-calling duties from the departed Kellen Moore, so we're not sure Schottenheimer's role will change much in 2023. He does have 12 seasons of experience as an NFL OC, most recently from 2018-2020 with the Seahawks. Those were run-leaning attacks, with 2 of the 3 finishing top 3 in rushing attempts.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy will take over play-calling duties from departed OC Kellen Moore, owner Jerry Jones said. Jones added that McCarthy will deploy a "version of the offenses he ran in Green Bay," according to The Dallas News' Calvin Watkins. McCarthy spent 13 years running the Packers offense, leading 10 of those teams to top 10 finishes in points, total yards or both. He was helped, of course, by having Brett Favre under center for his first 2 seasons and Aaron Rodgers for the final 11. McCarthy's offenses leaned pass, with 9 of them ranking higher in pass attempts than rush attempts. We'd expect a similar attack with QB Dak Prescott in 2023 but will keep an eye on McCarthy's plans throughout the offseason.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 23 of 37 attempts for 206 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Sunday's Divisional Round loss vs. the 49ers. The veteran QB also added 22 rushing yards on 4 carries in the contest. Prescott fell back into his ways of throwing risky passes after a stellar performance last week vs. the Buccaneers in the Wild Card round, and the resurfacing of this turnover issue couldn't have come at a worse time. He'd had a 7-game INT streak prior to last week's contest. Prescott's 15 INTs in 12 games led the NFL in the regular season, though averaging 16.6 fantasy points per game with a stabilizing plate in his thumb could be worse. We expect Prescott to return to the QB1 conversation in 2023.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 25 of 33 attempts for 305 yards and 4 TDs in Monday’s Wild Card win vs. the Buccaneers. The veteran QB added another 24 yards and a red zone TD on the ground. Prescott seems to have found his groove after entering the playoffs on a 7-game turnover streak. Next up on the agenda is a tough road battle vs. the 49ers’ defense that ranks 8th-toughest in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott threw for 347 yards and 3 TDs in Saturday's win over the Eagles. He found WR CeeDee Lamb twice for scores, from 36 and 7 yards out. His other TD went to WR Michael Gallup from 12 yards out in the 3rd quarter. Week 17 holds a pass-funnel matchup with the Titans, who sit 4th-toughest on RB scoring but 6th most friendly to QB fantasy numbers.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott went 23-of-30 passing for 256 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's OT loss to the Jaguars. He also tossed 2 INTs, including a pick-6 to S Rayshawn Jenkins in OT to end the game. It was Prescott's 2nd straight game with multiple INTs and 4th such game among the past 6. Next comes a difficult matchup with the Eagles.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott wound up with a decent 284 passing yards in Sunday's narrow victory over the Texans but threw just 1 TD pass vs. 2 INTs. He now just just 6 TDs vs. 5 INTs over his past 3 outings. Week 15 holds a weak Jacksonville pass defense. We'll see whether Prescott can rebound ahead of a tough Week 16 home date with the Eagles.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott posted 170 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT on 30 attempts in a Week 13 win over Indianapolis. Dallas won in a blowout following a trio of 4th-quarter rushing TDs, so Dak wasn’t really needed much late. His scores went to Michael Gallup (2) and CeeDee Lamb. Prescott certainly remains a QB1 for the road ahead. Just note: Week 14 turns up a Houston matchup — at home — that should produce a run-heavy game plan. After that comes a favorable draw at Jacksonville.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott tossed 2 INTs in the 1st half of Thursday's game against the Giants, helping the visitor carry a 6-point lead into halftime. But Prescott rebounded with 2 TD throws in the 2nd half. He nearly added a 3rd, but WR CeeDee Lamb just missed getting his feet down on a 4th-quarter end-zone catch before TE Peyton Hendershot's rushing score. Next week brings a Colts D that has been 9th most friendly to QB scoring on the season.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 22 of his 25 passes in Sunday's blowout win over the Vikings. He tallied 276 yards and 2 TDs, with both going to RB Tony Pollard. Prescott doesn't have a worrisome matchup on the schedule until Week 16 against Philly.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott tossed 3 TD passes in Sunday's OT loss at Green Bay but proved inefficient overall. He threw for 265 yards but averaged just 5.76 per attempt across 46 throws. Prescott also threw a pair of INTs, each kicking off a scoring drive for the Packers. The QB gets a softer matchup at Minnesota in Week 11.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott delivered 250 yards and 2 TDs on 21-of-27 passing in Sunday's win over the Bears. He added 34 yards and a TD on 5 rushing attempts. He found WR CeeDee Lamb for a team-high 77 yards on 5 catches and connected for a TD. The other TD pass went to rookie TE Jake Ferguson. TE Dalton Schultz tied for the team target lead (7) and caught 6 for 74 yards. WR Michael Gallup added 4-49 receiving on 6 targets. No other Cowboy drew more than 2 targets. Prescott looks like at least a top-12 fantasy QB going forward, with solid matchups at Green Bay and Minnesota following the Week 9 bye.
