Shark Bites

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones admitted Tuesday that QB Dak Prescott (thumb) still can't grip the football well enough to play. That sure doesn't sound like a guy who will be ready to start an NFL game on Sunday. Look for QB Cooper Rush to be under center again vs. the Rams. We'll see if Prescott can make it back for Week 6

Recent Shark Bites

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finished the Week 15 loss to the Bills with 134 passing yards, 0 TDs, and 1 INT. He added 27 yards on four carries -- which wasn't nearly enough to salvage his fantasy day. The 134 passing yards were a season low. Prescott's 3.9 yards per attempt marked a season-low. And it was his first game since Week 1 without a passing TD. Buffalo's defense deserves a ton of credit, getting consistent pressure with four-man rushes and covering well on the back end. But Prescott continues to struggle on the road this season. He's now averaging just 216 passing yards and 1.1 TDs across seven games on the road (vs. 304 yards and 2.9 TDs at home). Prescott has finished as a top-12 fantasy QB in just two of those seven road games. He's back on the road in Week 16, although it's in Miami for a game with shootout potential. Prescott returns home for Week 17 for the Lions. If you've been rolling with him all season -- and you survived this Week 15 dud -- stick with Prescott these final two weeks.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott rebounded from a relative down week in the win at Carolina to hang 331 yards and 4 TD passes on the Commanders in Week 12. He did so while spreading the ball around more than usual. WR CeeDee Lamb led the way with 9 targets but posted just a 4-53-1 receiving line. WR Brandin Cooks snagged a 31-yard TD among his 4 receptions for 72 yards on 5 targets. The other two scores went to KaVontae Turpin from 34 yards out and RB Rico Dowdle on a 15-yard catch-and-run. The soft opponent certainly helped, but Prescott has now gone over 300 yards with 3+ TDs in four of his past five games. And his remaining schedule ranks third-best for QB scoring, with no truly worrisome spots. Prescott just might prove to be a league winner for 2023.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 25 of 38 passes for 186 yards with 2 TDs in Week 11 vs. the Panthers. The veteran’s streak of three straight games with 300+ passing yards was snapped on Sunday, though the nature of the 33-10 blowout certainly impacted this outcome. For context, Prescott didn’t even play during the final 5:47 of the fourth quarter. Even so, a pair of throwing scores helped fantasy managers enough, and the Cowboys’ remaining schedule ranks as the easiest for QBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed. Continue to comfortably start Prescott as a QB1 in lineups.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 26 of 35 passes for 404 yards with 4 TDs and 1 INT in Week 10 vs. the Giants. He also added 17 rushing yards and a TD on the ground in the contest. This man has been on an absolute tear of late. Over his past four games, Prescott is now averaging 338.5 passing yards and 3 TDs per game. Sunday’s performance is also notable as it marks the first time that the veteran signal-caller has thrown for over 400 yards in a game since 2021 Week 6. There’s good reason for fantasy managers to expect continued success from him moving forward as the Cowboys’ remaining schedule ranks fourth-easiest for QBs per our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott threw for 374 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He nearly added another TD pass to rookie TE Luke Schoonmaker in the fourth quarter, but Schoonmaker's knee came down just before the ball reached the goal line on a fourth-and-goal play. That makes two straight games of 300+ yards and 3+ TD passes for Prescott coming out of the bye. Week 10 holds a Giants defense that has been fifth-toughest on QB scoring by our adjusted fantasy points allowed. But the Giants also allowed an Aidan O'Connell led Raiders offense to tally 334 yards and 30 points Sunday. Expect to find Prescott comfortably inside starter territory in our Week 10 QB rankings.
