Dak Prescott Fantasy Football News 2020

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott underwent successful surgery on his right ankle on Sunday night. He's been told that the recovery timetable is 4-6 months, according to NFL Network's Jane Slater. So Prescott is done for 2020. But, barring setback, he should be ready to roll for 2021. We'll monitor his rehab.

The Cowboys announced that QB Dak Prescott suffered a right ankle compound fracture and dislocation in Sunday's game against the Giants. He'll have surgery on Sunday night and is likely done for the 2020 season. We should get confirmation tomorrow. Dallas will now turn to QB Andy Dalton, who completed 9 of 11 passes for 111 yards in leading Dallas to a comeback win today.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott appeared to dislocate his right ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. He's obviously done for the day. We'll look for confirmation on the injury and a timeline for Prescott's return -- but expect this to be a lengthy absence. QB Andy Dalton is Dallas' backup and will be worth a look in fantasy thanks to his loaded group of pass-catchers.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is expected to sign his franchise tag on Monday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That ensures Prescott will be in Dallas for 2020, when he'll earn $31.4 million. He and the Cowboys will have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. ESPN's Ed Werder reports that the 2 sides aren't particularly close to an agreement.

The Cowboys added Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb with the 17th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. He joins Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup in a loaded WR corps. Lamb turned in a brilliant 3-year college career. He made an immediate impact as a true freshman, ranking 3rd on the Sooners behind Marquise Brown and Mark Andrews with 46 catches and 807 yards and tying for 2nd with 7 TDs. Lamb’s numbers grew to 65 catches, 1,158 yards and 11 scores in 2018. And he pumped out a massive 62-1,327-14 line this past year. Lamb’s 15.1 yards per target and 3.99 yards per route run in 2019 were easily tops among 30 of this year’s best WR prospects. The 6’2, 198-pounder is a beast after the catch, ranking top 5 among all draft-eligible players in both missed tackles forced and yards-after-catch average. He’s also a weapon downfield with his long-striding speed and plus ball skills. We see a lot of Demaryius Thomas in Lamb’s game — although DeAndre Hopkins seems to be his most popular comp. Lamb is joining what was 1 of the most efficient passing games in the NFL last year, although he’ll be battling for targets with Cooper and Gallup. QB Dak Prescott’s stock gets a significant boost here.

The Cowboys have placed the franchise tag on QB Dak Prescott. The 2 sides have been working on hammering out a long-term deal and still have until July 15 to do so. But this at least ensures that Prescott will be with Dallas for the 2020 campaign. He's coming off a career-best season that saw him rank 2nd among QBs in fantasy points. It was his 4th straight top-11 finish.

The Cowboys will name HC Mike McCarthy their new HC, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. An official announcement is expected later this week. McCarthy spent 2006-2018 as Packers HC, compiling a 125-77-2 record, 9 playoff appearances and 1 Super Bowl. He was an OC before that and figures to have a big say in the Cowboys offense. But we'll see who McCarthy brings aboard as his OC.

The Cowboys have fired HC Jason Garrett. The move seemed inevitable but for some reason took until a full week after Dallas' season had ended to happen. Garrett spent the past 13 seasons with the Cowboys as either OC or HC. He finishes with an 85-67 record as HC but had far too many underachieving seasons. 2019 was chief among them, with Dallas going 8-8 despite a loaded roster. We'll see who the Cowboys tab as their new HC. We're also curious to see if they can hang on OC Kellen Moore, who showed promise at times as the play-caller this past year.

ESPN's Adam Caplan hears that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) had "no issues with making throws with some distance on them during Saturday's work." It's the most positive report we've heard on Prescott all week. We still won't know exactly how close he is to 100% until Cowboys-Eagles kicks off this afternoon, though, so we're still ranking him as a risk/reward QB1.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (shoulder) isn't listed on the final injury report. It's confirmation that he'll start Sunday's game against the Eagles. Prescott is reportedly dealing with an AC joint injury in his right shoulder, though, and only did some light throwing on Friday this week. It obviously adds lots of risk to his Week 16 fantasy profile -- although there's upside in this matchup vs. Philly's burnable CBs.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott told reporters on Thursday that he'll play against the Eagles this weekend, despite the AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder. "I'm getting better," he said. "Simple as that. Mobility and function, it's all improving. That's the key. That's the goal. I'll be good to go Sunday." Prescott didn't throw on Thursday and said that he might not throw until Saturday. He also revealed that he suffered this same injury multiple times in college. "I haven't had it in 4 years. You forget the pain level," he said. "You've got to get used to that again, but it's fine ... Nothing I can't deal with." We'll continue to keep a close eye on Prescott, but he's shaping up as a risk/reward Week 16 fantasy play.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams. Prescott never left that game but attempted just 20 passes over the final 3-and-a-half quarters. HC Jason Garrett said Wednesday that an MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder but that Prescott is "not very functional at the moment." Garrett also stopped short of guaranteeing that Prescott will play against the Eagles this weekend, although ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Prescott is expected to play. We'll keep a close eye on the situation over the next few days -- but we just moved Prescott and his WRs down the Week 16 Rankings.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott injured the index finger on his right hand and sprained his left hand in Thursday night's game in Chicago, HC Jason Garrett said. Garrett expects Prescott to be "fine" for Week 15, but we'll need to keep an eye on him. Prescott completed a season-low 55% of his passes in that loss to Chicago.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (hip, back) are expected to play against the Eagles tonight. It's a surprising turnaround for Cooper, who seemed unlikely to play most of the week until returning to a limited practice on Friday. It's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% tonight, though, and we saw last week that he's at risk of aggravating the quad injury. Consider Cooper a risk/reward WR2 for Week 7. OTs Tyron Smith (ankle) and La'El Collins (knee) are also expected to play tonight, per Schefter, so QB Dak Prescott's stock is on the rise.
