    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 302 yards, three touchdowns and an interception and ran for 13 yards in a 34-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday, Jan. 15.

    Huddle Up: After a brilliant rookie season that no one could have predicted, Prescott is already in the mix as a QB1 heading into 2017.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 5:14am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott won't play the whole game in Week 17 as QBs Tony Romo and Mark Sanchez are expected to play an undetermined role as well.

    Huddle Up: It could be a situation like a preseason game where he plays the first half and comes out. Due to such, he really isn't worth rolling the dice on in fantasy this week against the Philadelphia Eagles.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 8:05pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 15 of his 20 pass attempts for 212 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 16 game against the Detroit Lions Monday, Dec. 26. He also rushed four times for 35 yards.

    Huddle Up: The only things that can slow down Prescott are the New York Giants, and perhaps rest in Week 17 with the team already having clinched home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs. Fantasy owners playing into the final week of NFL will want to be careful with the rookie.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 7:55am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will play in Week 17, along with the starters, as normal, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

    Huddle Up: This will be subject to change because the Cowboys have nothing to play for as far as seeding goes. The Detroit Lions could still be playing for the division crown next week, which means Prescott is a dicey start next week.

  • Posted: 12/19/2016 5:31am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was 32-for-36 for 279 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions Sunday, Dec. 18, against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He broke a franchise record with his sixth rushing touchdown as a quarterback, though.

    Huddle Up: The accuracy is ridiculously good, but it was a pretty pedestrian fantasy line until he reached the end zone with his legs. Prescott remains a midrange QB1.

  • Posted: 12/12/2016 9:26am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will only come out of the lineup in favor of backup Tony Romo if the rookie is unavailable and/or injured, according to team owner Jerry Jones.

    Huddle Up: Prescott played arguably the worst game of his brief pro career in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. Apparently, some in the Dallas media want to stir up some controversy even after Romo publicly passed the torch to him a few weeks ago. Prescott has slowed in recent weeks thanks to back-to-back difficult road matchups, but don't be surprised if he gets back on track with consecutive home games over the next two weeks, even against the improving defenses of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions.

  • Posted: 12/1/2016 9:19pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 12 of his 18 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown and ran six times for 37 yards in a 17-15 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 13.

    Huddle Up: Prescott didn't throw much in what became a low-scoring, defensive battle. He should return to form in Week 14 against the Giants.

  • Posted: 11/22/2016 3:55pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has registered a 100.0 QB rating in eight games this year, which currently pits him in a tie for second place with Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger and Cleveland Browns QB Robert Griffin III for most such games in a rookie season. He trails only Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who posted nine in his rookie campaign.

    Huddle Up: More likely than not, Prescott will break that mark by the end of 2016, which should serve as additional evidence in proving how special the 23-year-old really is. For the season, Prescott has completed 214-of-316 passes (67.7 percent) for 2,640 yards and 17 touchdowns compared to only two interceptions. Furthermore, he's also rushed for 141 yards on 33 carries, while scoring four touchdowns on the ground. It'll be an interesting battle for Offensive Rookie of the Year between him and teammate Ezekiel Elliot. In the meantime, Prescott should sustain his QB1 status versus the Redskins on Thanksgiving.

  • Posted: 11/20/2016 3:58pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 27 of his 36 attempts for 301 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Baltimore Ravens. He also rushed twice for 16 yards.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is getting better, and that's scary for the NFL and the rest of the fantasy universe. He has two or more touchdown passes in five straight outings, totaling 13 TDs with two interceptions and he has his first two 300-yard games in the past two weeks. He'll look to keep it rolling against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/16/2016 9:11am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott won't have a short leash at quarterback. '(We) certainly don't want any of our players looking over their shoulders when they play,' head coach Jason Garrett said.

    Huddle Up: Prescott would likely have to sustain an injury for Tony Romo to replace him at this stage. Prescott has been a top-10 quarterback in fantasy the last five weeks. He'll face a midrange Baltimore Ravens defense in Week 11, and he remains a solid QB1 option.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 10:34pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will start in Week 11 against the Baltimore Ravens, owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed Sunday, Nov. 13.

    Huddle Up: Prescott has led the team to eight straight wins and the best record in the NFL and the news isn't terribly surprising, as everyone knew the day would come with Tony Romo healthy again.

  • Posted: 11/13/2016 8:39pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 22 of his 32 pass attempts for 319 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 10 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The rookie led a fourth quarter comeback to help his team to an eighth consecutive victory.

    Huddle Up: Prescott did lose a fumble, so it wasn't a perfect day. But the rookie from Mississippi State is tearing it up and has emerged as a trusted fantasy starter in leagues of 12 or more teams. The Cowboys host the Ravens in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/8/2016 9:06am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will continue to start as long as he has the hot hand, but owner Jerry Jones promises to play the situation 'by ear', according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Charean Williams.

    Huddle Up: It's been clear for weeks Dallas will not make a change until Prescott gets hurt, has a bad game or the Cowboys lose - none of which has happened lately. While there is always a chance that changes, the odds that it will diminish by the week. Therefore, Prescott will likely remain a QB1 in fantasy for the foreseeable future.

  • Posted: 11/6/2016 12:59pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott went 21-for-27 for 247 yards and three touchdowns against the Cleveland Browns in Week 9. He also rushed for 20 yards on four carries.

    Huddle Up: Prescott continues to produce as the starter and could keep the job for the rest of the season. He has thrown for eight touchdowns in his last three games and has been consistent with his passing yards. He is scheduled to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in the next game and should be a starter in all leagues.

  • Posted: 11/1/2016 9:33am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott may hold on to the starting job even after Tony Romo (back) is cleared to return, based on comments made by team owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday, Nov. 1. 'You want to be very mindful of what you got going. Chemistry has to be recognized,' Jones told reporters.

    Huddle Up: Jones has apparently reversed course on the issue after claiming Romo would be handed the job if/when he was cleared to play a few weeks ago, although the Cowboys are making it something of a non-issue by continuing to push back his timetable for a return. Prescott has emerged as a fantasy QB1 as a rookie and should be expected to keep the job as long as Dallas keeps winning.

  • Posted: 10/31/2016 5:12am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will start in Week 9 against the Cleveland Browns, according to owner Jerry Jones.

    Huddle Up: Prescott will probably remain the starter as long as he's healthy. He threw for 287 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Week 8, and he tacked on a rushing touchdown. He's a midrange QB1 against the Cleveland Browns.

  • Posted: 10/19/2016 6:06am ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will be the starting quarterback in Week 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles following the bye week.

    Huddle Up: Prescott has played himself into the low-end QB1 area universally. He should have Dez Bryant (knee) back for the game as well.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 10:25pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 18 of his 27 pass attempts for 247 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the Week 6 game against the Green Bay Packers. His NFL record streak for a quarterback at the start of his career without an interception ended at 176 pass attempts.

    Huddle Up: Prescott has a 5-1 record as a starter while tossing seven touchdowns and running for three others. The Cowboys have an interesting decision coming once Tony Romo is deemed healthy and ready to return. Prescott has emerged as a decent low-end QB1 in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 10/9/2016 10:00pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 18 of his 24 pass attempts for 227 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 5 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He also ran seven times for four yards and had a rushing touchdown and fumble lost, his first turnover in five games.

    Huddle Up: Prescott keep ticking off wins and taking good care of the ball, as his fumble in the second half happened with his team up 28-0. He has emerged as a decent QB2 and bye-week replacement in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 10:31pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott completed 22 of his 30 pass attempts for 292 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in the Week 2 game against the Washington Redskins. He also rushed once for a six-yard score.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is filling in admirably for the injured Tony Romo, as the Cowboys look night and day from last season when they struggled to find an adequate replacement for their starter. The rookie Prescott is a solid QB2 and will make a decent bye week replacement in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 8/19/2016 8:46pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 12 of his 15 passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns and ran three times for 28 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-14 preseason win over the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19.

    Huddle Up: Prescott's impressive preseason continued, and the small sample is enough to warrant a speculative stash in dynasty formats.

  • Posted: 8/19/2016 7:22pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott led four scoring drives in the first half against the Miami Dolphins Friday, Aug. 19, and owner Jerry Jones said he doesn't see a veteran quarterback coming in as long as Prescott continues to play well.

    Huddle Up: Prescott is well on his way to securing the backup quarterback job. He has flashed enough potential to add in all keeper leagues, and he would be a speculative add in all formats if Tony Romo suffers another injury.

  • Posted: 8/5/2016 3:39pm ET

    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott took snaps ahead of QB Jameill Showers during practice Thursday, Aug. 4.

    Huddle Up: As it should be with a fourth-round pick running ahead of a second-year undrafted free agent, but there's little chance the Cowboys go on much longer without acquiring some veteran experience to back up Tony Romo after the disastrous turn the Cowboys' 2015 season took with Romo out.
