The Cowboys are signing Dak Prescott to a new contract.
The team itself broke this news, announcing that they've signed their franchise quarterback to a new deal, with a press conference scheduled for Wednesday. Dallas was set to use the franchise tag for a second consecutive year on Prescott, but the two sides finally came to an agreement after lengthy and somewhat contentious negotiations dating back to last season. According to multiple reports, Prescott is getting a four-year, $160 million deal including a record $126 million guaranteed, so the former fourth-round pick did extraordinarily well to remain patient and get this whopper of a deal. Prescott had a very strong start to the 2020 season before a season-ending leg injury, and the team and new head coach Mike McCarthy clearly saw enough to know he's their guy moving forward. Prescott is by all accounts an excellent person and someone the Cowboys should feel good about as a face of the franchise.
Dak Prescott suffers apparent severe lower-leg injury.
All injuries are unfortunate, but this is really one you do not want to look at the replay of if you haven't seen it yet. Prescott is being carted off the field, and his day is certainly done—and it looks like he will be out for an extended period of time with this injury. Before leaving, Prescott was 14/21 for 166 yards and one interception along with two carries for seven yards; he also caught an 11-yard touchdown pass in the first half. We wish Dak, who is in a contract year and was looking to get a huge long-term contract after the season, a speedy recovery.
Dak Prescott has returned for the Cowboys.
Dak was presumably checked to ensure that he didn't suffer a concussion on the big hit he took, and he's back in the game after missing just one play for Dallas.
Dak Prescott leaves game after taking big hit.
Falcons linebacker Deion Jones put a massive hit on Prescott, who went to the sideline and right to the blue medical tent. Andy Dalton is now in at quarterback for the Cowboys as they attempt a comeback, but hopefully Dak can return to the field soon.
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys did not agree to a long-term contract before today’s deadline.
Dallas obviously wants Prescott long-term, and they reportedly offered him over $100 million guaranteed on an extension. However, the word is that Prescott wanted a shorter four-year deal to cash in on a second massive extension earlier than a longer deal would allow him to. It seems that Prescott is content to go the Kirk Cousins route and play multiple years on the franchise tag if necessary, and he can’t feel bad about getting well over $30 million per year as long as he continues on the tag. From a fantasy perspective, Dak is a surefire QB1 this season in his first year under new head coach Mike McCarthy.
Dak Prescott has officially signed his exclusive franchise tender.
This was fully expected, and Prescott will now be paid over $31 million this season on the tag if he and the Cowboys don't agree to a long-term deal by July 15. At this point, an extension seems highly unlikely, so it will be interesting to see how Dak plays in 2020—and how long this saga might drag on.
Dak Prescott plans to sign his franchise tender soon.
ESPN's Adam Schefter says Prescott is expected to sign the one-year $31.4 million exclusive tender "by Monday." This action would ensure that Dak must play for the Cowboys in 2020, whether on this one-year tag or on a long-term extension. The two sides have until July 15 to agree to a long-term deal, but there should not be any drama in terms of a holdout this summer if Prescott and the team don't get something done by then.
The Cowboys have placed the franchise tag on Dak Prescott, according to multiple reports.
Things appeared trending in this direction, but the bad news for Dallas is that this allows star receiver Amari Cooper to hit free agency. The Cowboys and Prescott have until July 15 to agree to a long-term extension or the quarterback will be forced to play the year on the one-year tag. Jerry Jones typically finds a way to get a deal done for his guys, but this one will be interesting given the huge money quarterbacks receive.
Dak Prescott had an MRI on his throwing shoulder.
Prescott was banged up in the Cowboys' Week 15 win over the Rams, but there is pretty much zero question he will play in a huge NFC East matchup in Philadelphia this Sunday. Expect Prescott's practice reps to be limited throughout the week, but it would be a major shocker if he doesn't play with a chance to clinch another division title. We will update you with Prescott's official status on the final Week 16 injury report when it's released on Friday.
Dak Prescott lights up the Lions in Week 11.
Prescott was 29/46 for 444 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys' 35-27 Week 11 victory at Detroit. Prescott hit Randall Cobb, Tony Pollard, and Ezekiel Elliott on his three scores, and No. 1 receiver Amari Cooper didn't even do a ton of damage through the air (three receptions for 38 yards). Prescott now has three 400-yard passing games this season (most in the league), and he's earning a ton of money by playing out the final year of his contract. Detroit has one of the league's worst pass defenses, and things should get a lot tougher next Sunday in Foxboro; but fantasy owners obviously have to be thrilled with the way Prescott is playing this season.
Dak Prescott cleared concussion protocol.
Dak did not miss any time while being evaluated for his concussion, and he's in there to start Dallas' next drive against the Jets.
Dak Prescott is in the concussion protocol.
Prescott looks like he does not think he should be in concussion protocol, but he's getting checked out nonetheless. We'll update you as more information becomes available on Dak's status.
Dak Prescott stays hot in Cowboys' Week 2 win.
Prescott was 26/30 for 269 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception along with five carries for 69 yards in a 31-21 victory over the Redskins. Prescott hit Amari Cooper and Jason Witten for a couple of touchdowns in the red zone, but the highlight was a perfect 51-yard deep ball to Devin Smith for a touchdown against Josh Norman, who earlier in the week said anybody can do what Prescott is doing. Playing in an offense that's been more opened up and taking more shots down the intermediate and deeper parts of the field, Dak has been throwing the ball as well as anyone through two games this season, and next he gets a matchup against a Dolphins team that's been outscored 102-10 this year. Another fantasy QB1 finish looks likely in 2019.
Dak Prescott lights up the Giants in Cowboys' Week 1 win.
Prescott was 25/34 for 405 yards and four touchdowns—posting a perfect passer rating of 158.3—in Dallas' dominant 35-17 victory. The Giants blew a number of coverages in the game, but Prescott still played exceptionally well, putting his passes on point all game, hitting eight different receivers including four different players for touchdowns. Dak mostly attacked the Giants down the intermediate and deep parts of the field, and his passes were very accurate, giving his receivers opportunities to run in stride after the catch or come up with deep balls. It won't be this easy every week, but Prescott's confidence appears to be extremely high, and he'll next face a Redskins team that also blew some coverages against the Eagles in their Week 1 game. The Cowboys might want to get a contract done with Prescott soon before his asking price gets out of hand.
Dak Prescott throws one touchdown in Cowboys' playoff loss.
Prescott was 20/32 for 266 yards and one touchdown along with two carries for three yards and a touchdown; he also had a two-point conversion on a pass to Amari Cooper. The passing score was a 29-yarder to Cooper in the first quarter on an in-breaking route that Cooper caught in stride and took to the house. The rushing score was on a speed option in the fourth quarter to cut the Rams' lead to one possession. There were some throws Prescott missed, but he threw some dimes—including a 44-yard deep ball to Michael Gallup to set Dallas up at the two-yard line—and played well overall. Prescott enters the offseason with two division titles and a playoff victory under his belt, and he'll get a full offseason with Amari Cooper leading up to next season. The Cowboys franchise quarterback is an obvious candidate for a contract extension in the coming months.
Dak Prescott plays well in Cowboys' playoff win.
Prescott was 22/33 for 226 yards, one touchdown, and one interception along with six carries for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Wild Card Round victory over the Seahawks. While he had an interception on an underthrown pass to the end zone as a blemish later in the game, Prescott again made plays down the stretch to help lead his team to 14 fourth-quarter points and a win. The passing score was on a dime to Michael Gallup toward the end of the first half, and the rushing score was on a quarterback sneak the play after he had a clutch 16-yard run on a third-and-long to basically ice the game. Prescott will now lead Dallas on the road to face either New Orleans or Los Angeles next weekend in the Divisional Round.
Dak Prescott throws four touchdowns in Cowboys' Week 17 victory.
Prescott was excellent in a thrilling win in which the Cowboys went all out despite being locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC. The third-year quarterback was 27/44 for 387 yards and four touchdowns, hitting tight end Blake Jarwin for three touchdowns before hitting Cole Beasley on a 32-yard dime on a fourth down for the game-winning score late in the fourth quarter. This game should be a confidence-booster for Prescott heading into the postseason, and he'll of course get Ezekiel Elliott back in the lineup to take pressure off him when Dallas hosts Seattle on Saturday night. Prescott's regular season ends with 3,885 yards, 22 touchdowns, and eight interceptions along with 75 carries for 305 yards and six touchdowns. Prescott ended up the No. 10 fantasy quarterback this season, outscoring players like Philip Rivers (by less than a point), Kirk Cousins, and Tom Brady.
Dak Prescott plays well in Cowboys' Week 16 win to clinch the NFC East
Prescott was 20/25 for 161 yards and a touchdown along with four carries for two yards and a touchdown against the Buccaneers. The rushing score was on either a zone-read or a designed quarterback keeper where he basically walked in. The passing score was a nice fade to Michael Gallup in the end zone. The Cowboys are locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC after their division title, so there's a chance we don't see Dak in Week 17.
Colts shutout the Cowboys in Week 15.
Dallas' offense couldn't really get anything going against Indy, and the passing game in particular struggled. Dak Prescott was 24/39 for 206 yards and an interception, and he didn't have any carries in the loss. From a fantasy perspective, this was Prescott's worst game of the season, and it came at a bad time for those that took a chance on him in the second round of fantasy playoffs. Prescott and the Cowboys will look to bounce back next week against the Buccaneers.
Dak Prescott leads Cowboys to overtime win against the Eagles.
Prescott was 42/54 for 455 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions as the Cowboys took a commanding lead in the NFC East with three games remaining. 217 of Prescott’s yards and all of the three scores were to Amari Cooper, with two coming in the fourth quarter on a couple of deep balls (including a 75-yarder), and the final touchdown was a game-winner in overtime after a tipped pass deflected up to Cooper for a walk-in score. The interceptions weren’t great, but Prescott bounced back and came up clutch when his team needed it with some great strikes down the field before calmly driving his team down for the winner in overtime. Prescott’s 455 yards are a career-high, and his confidence is probably at an all-time high right now. He’s in the QB1 mix for the second week of the fantasy playoffs against the Colts.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys win defensive battle against the Saints, 13-10.
Prescott was 24/28 for 248 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions, also adding five carries for 22 yards and two fumbles (one lost). The Cowboys were able to get out to a 13-0 lead at the half, and it was all defense after that, as they held New Orleans to season-lows across the board. Dak set the single-game franchise record for consecutive completions (18) in the victory, and Dallas has now won four in a row to take a commanding lead in the NFC East at 7-5. At home again next Sunday with extra time to prepare for the Eagles, Prescott should be considered a quality QB2 option.
Dak Prescott scores three times in Cowboys' Thanksgiving win.
Prescott was 22/31 for 289 yards and two touchdowns along with six carries for 18 yards and another score on the ground. Both passing scores were to Amari Cooper—one for 40 yards and one for 90 yards, with Cooper catching-and-running on intermediate passes—and the rushing touchdown was on a spectacular scramble where he ran around and eventually dove into the end zone for six. Prescott continues to silence the critics while leading the Cowboys to three straight wins, and he'll look to keep it going in a potential shootout with Drew Brees and the Saints one week from tonight.
Dak Prescott runs for one touchdown in Cowboys' win.
Prescott was 22/32 for 208 yards along with four carries for five yards and a touchdown in a big win against the Falcons to get the Cowboys to 5-5 on the season. The score was on a zone-read at the goal line for four yards. As a passer, Prescott avoided mistakes and make some big plays under pressure, as he continues to play very well amidst criticism. Prescott faces the Redskins on Thanksgiving. He ran for a touchdown and had 19 standard fantasy points against them in their first matchup this season.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys pickup huge win over the Eagles on Sunday Night Football, 27-20.
Prescott was 26/36 for 270 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions, also adding six carries for nine yards and a score. He left some plays on the field, but overall, Dak played great in what could be a defining victory to keep the 4-5 Cowboys in the NFC East race by knocking the Eagles to 4-5. The second half last night turned into more of a shootout after Dallas entered the break with a 13-3 lead, and Prescott will likely need to score points once again next week with a trip to Atlanta on deck. Dak remains just a low-end QB2, but the Falcons are certainly vulnerable.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys drop to 3-5 with 28-14 loss to the Titans.
Prescott was 21/31 for 243 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, also adding two carries for 11 yards and a lost fumble. Dallas was able to get in range for a field goal to start the game, but Brett Maher missed from 38 yards out, but they answered with a touchdown drive that was capped off by a four-yard score to Amari Cooper. The next possession was costly, though, as a short field after a Tennessee fumble led to zero points after a forced interception in the end zone, and the Cowboys were mostly contained besides a touchdown to end the first half. At the season's midway point, Dak is on pace for 3,320 yards and a 20:10 touchdown-interception ratio. He won't be a recommended fantasy option heading into Philadelphia for a Sunday Night Football matchup as Dallas' season hangs in the balance.
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys fall just short in Week 7.
Prescott led the Cowboys to ten fourth-quarter points in a tight NFC East matchup with the Redskins, but a game-tying field goal attempt hit the post, ending the game. Prescott was 22/35 for 273 yards and one touchdown along with six carries for 33 yards and one touchdown—and two lost fumbles—in the loss. Overall, the third-year quarterback again played well (especially considering the running game couldn't get anything going), getting the ball out to his receivers and making plays with his legs—the touchdown was on a play he went airborne to get in for six. The passing touchdown was a 49-yarder to a wide open Michael Gallup after a double-move. The Cowboys now have a Week 8 bye before facing the Titans for a Monday night matchup.
Dak Prescott plays great as the Cowboys roll over the Jags.
Prescott had his best game of the season against Jacksonville, controlling the game by throwing accurate passes to all areas of the field and making plays with his legs. Prescott was 17/27 for 183 yards and two touchdowns along with 11 carries for 82 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Both touchdowns were to Cole Beasley, who got open throughout the afternoon against the Jaguars. And the running score was a 17-yarder on a zone-read where he basically walked into the end zone—his first rushing touchdown of the season. Overall, it was a great game for Prescott, who has played very well the last three weeks and will look to keep it going next week agains the Redskins.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys fall to the Texans in overtime, 19-16.
Prescott was 18/29 for 208 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the loss, also adding six carries for 34 yards. Those who didn't watch the game will ignorantly say Dak struggled, but neither turnover was really his fault, with the first bouncing right off Tavon Austin's hands, and the second deflecting into the air on the good defensive play. Overall, Prescott made plays for an offense that has basically no threat other than Ezekiel Elliott, and the coaching staff probably made a mistake—though hindsight is obviously 20/20—in not going for it on fourth-and-one in overtime and allowing Houston to get in range for the game-winning field goal. Prescott almost certainly doesn't have the weapons to overcome a matchup with the Jaguars next Sunday.
Dak Prescott leads the Cowboys to win over the Lions to get Dallas to 2-2.
With a lot of talk about Prescott heading into a Week 4 matchup with the Lions, Prescott responded with one of his best games in the last two seasons. He was 17/27 for 255 yards and two touchdowns, and he led his team in position for a game-winning field goal for a one-point win as time expired. Throughout the game, Prescott was accurate to all areas of the field, and he connected on a couple of deep balls to his receivers—including one to Ezekiel Elliott down the right sideline on the game-winning drive. Through four games, Prescott is on pace for 3,012 yards, 16 touchdowns, and eight interceptions along with 68 carries for 348 rushing yards. This game was a positive sign, and Prescott might be in a shootout with the Texans next Sunday night, but there are probably better fantasy quarterback options out there for your lineup.
Cowboys offense can't get much going against the Seahawks.
Seattle had a very good defensive showing at home, forcing a few turnovers against Dallas to get their first win of the season. Dak Prescott was 19/34 for 168 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions along with two carries for 21 yards. The stat line obviously doesn't look good, but the first interception was off a dropped pass, and the other was on a pass deflected up in the air. The score was a pop pass to Tavon Austin. Prescott has been under 200 passing yard for five straight games dating back to last season, and he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups right now.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys jump out to early lead and top the Giants on Sunday Night Football.
Prescott was 16/25 for 160 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. He also rushed seven times for 45 yards in a 20-13 victory. The scoring got started early on a 64-yard touchdown pass to Tavon Austin on the game's opening drive, but Dallas was mostly held in check offensively for the rest of the night. While Dak's production as a runner was encouraging, he just might not have the talent around him to be a consistent fantasy option. That said, he gets a great matchup against Seattle next Sunday, so Prescott is a definite option in two-QB leagues.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys struggle offensively in 16-8 loss to the Panthers.
Prescott went 19/29 for 170 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions, also adding five carries for 19 yards and a lost fumble. Besides connecting with Cole Beasley seven times for 73 yards, Dak struggled to get going with his other receivers. The spotlight will be on next week when Dallas hosts the rival Giants on Sunday Night Football, and Prescott is difficult to trust as anything more than a low-end QB2 option.
Dak Prescott throws a touchdown was Cowboys win in Week 17.
Prescott was 17/30 for 179 yards and a touchdown, along with two carries for 16 yards, against the Eagles. This was clearly an up-and-down season for the second-year quarterback, who wasn't as sharp as his spectacular rookie season. Prescott ended up with 3,324 passing yards, 22 passing touchdowns, 13 interceptions, and a 62.9% completion percentage, along with 57 carries for 257 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. Despite four single-digit performances this season (including a -2-point outing), Prescott will offer top-five upside in 2018 fantasy drafts.
Dak Prescott tosses two interceptions as Cowboys are eliminated from playoff contention.
Prescott was 21/34 for 182 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions, including a pick-six at the start of the second half in a 21-12 loss. He also rushed four times for 21 yards. Dallas had everything break their way earlier in the day to potentially earn a postseason berth with two-straight wins, but they collapsed on Sunday. Dak will look to finish strong next week against the probably-resting Eagles, but there will be some real questions—whether right or wrong—about him and the Cowboys in the offseason.
Dak Prescott throws two interceptions but Cowboys improve to 8-6.
The stat line for Prescott didn’t do his game justice, as neither interception was really on him. The first was on a slant route that Dez Bryant held up on to apparently avoid a hit, and it was easily intercepted by Sean Smith behind him. And the second was off a play where Prescott’s arm was hit and caused the ball to fly in the air for another Smith interception. Overall, Prescott was 18/27 for 212 yards and two interceptions while also adding six carries for 32 yards and a rushing touchdown. The score came on a scramble deep in the red zone in the third quarter. Prescott will now get his friend Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield after the six-game suspension, which should give a boost to the entire offense. Prescott is in backend QB1 conversation against the Seahawks.
Dak Prescott plays great in Cowboys' win over the Giants.
Prescott had one of the best games of his young career against a team that's given him trouble over his first three starts against them, as he went 20/30 for 332 yards and three touchdowns while adding six carries for 13 yards to help get the Cowboys to 7-6. While the Giants are banged up and just fired their head coach, it probably feels good for Prescott to light them up through the air. Two of the touchdowns were to Dez Bryant and Rod Smith on slant routes that broke for 50 yards and 81 yards, respectively. And he had a 20-yarder to Jason Witten on a perfect throw to the end zone. Prescott will be in QB1 consideration next week against Oakland.
Dak Prescott throws two touchdowns in Cowboys' Week 13 win.
The second-year quarterback didn't start off the game great, but he settled down and complimented a strong running game to help the Cowboys get to 6-6. Prescott was 11/22 for 102 yards and two touchdowns while also adding five carries for 28 rushing yards. The first touchdowns was on a perfect throw to Jason Witten on an in-breaking route in the end zone for eight yards. And the second was a 13-yarder to Dez Bryant on a fade route in the end zone. For the first week of the fantasy playoffs next week, Prescott faces a Giants team that's done well against him in the past. He carries some risk, but it's always possible the struggling Giants don't play well in the game.
Dak Prescott (hand) has returned against the Redskins.
Prescott went to the locker room for X-rays, but he's back and was throwing the ball on the sideline with no apparent issues. The Cowboys are up by ten with about a minute to go in the first half, so Prescott is likely going to throw the ball and try to get his team into field goal range, at least.
Dak Prescott (hand) leaves Thursday night game against Washington.
Prescott took a big hit from a helmet to his hand in the second quarter versus the Redskins, and he's now headed to the locker room. He might to be off to get some X-rays, and the hit was unfortunately to the right throwing hand of Prescott. We'll update you with more information as it becomes available, but it wouldn't be surprising if Prescott was unable to return to tonight's game.
Dak Prescott struggles against the Chargers.
The second-year quarterback couldn't get much going against a red-shot Los Angeles defense, and things really started to fall apart toward the end of the game with a couple of interceptions on poor decisions. Overall, Prescott was 20/27 for 179 yards and two interceptions, and the Cowboys are having trouble making big plays in the passing game. He did have a would-be touchdown run on a zone read for about 40 yards, but it was called back after a holding penalty on left tackle Tyron Smith. Prescott has a combined one fantasy point over the last two weeks, and he had only six points in his first matchup against his next opponent (the Redskins). You should probably keep him on the bench until he gets out of the funk he's in.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys get blown out at home by Philadelphia.
Prescott was 18/31 for 145 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. He also lost a fumble in what was easily his worst game as a pro, though he didn't have much of a chance with left tackle Tyron Smith out again. Dallas is now 5-5 and has almost no chance of winning the NFC East, but the playoffs are still in reach. Prescott needs to be downgraded to a low-end QB1 or QB2 heading into a Thanksgiving matchup with a confident Chargers team.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys fall to Falcons in first game with Ezekiel Elliott.
Prescott was 20/30 for 176 yards, zero passing touchdowns, and zero interceptions, though he did rush six times for 42 yards and a score. He also fumbled twice, losing them both. The bigger concern than Zeke's suspension for Dallas was left tackle Tyron Smith being inactive, as Adrian Clayborn wrecked with game with a team-record six sacks, giving Prescott barely any time to get rid of the ball. The rushing production saved fantasy owners, and that should continue next week against Philadelphia, where hopefully Smith will be back and Prescott can be safely used as a solid QB1.
Dak Prescott scores three times in win over the Chiefs.
Prescott was 21/33 for 249 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions, adding three carries for 27 yards and a score. At the season's midway point, Dak is on pace for 3,636 passing yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Through 24 career games, he has a 39:8 touchdown-interception ratio. Keep him in lineups as a solid QB1 against Atlanta next week.
Dallas rides the running game in Week 8 win over the Redskins.
Dak Prescott was 14/22 for 143 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in a 33-19 win. He also rushed three times for 16 yards. The Cowboys ran it 39 times on Sunday, so Prescott wasn't asked to do too much in the victory. Dak remains a QB1 option when they take on the Chiefs back at home in Week 9. Fantasy owners could be in for a potential shootout.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys put up 40 points in blowout win over the 49ers.
Prescott was 16/25 for 234 yards, three touchdowns, and zero turnovers. He also rushed four times for 26 yards and another touchdown. It shouldn't come as a big surprise that Dallas rolled San Francisco with a bye week to prepare, but it was undoubtedly a confidence-building performance by the entire team heading into next week's divisional matchup with Washington. Keep Presott in lineups as a solid QB1.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys barely fall to the Packers in 35-31 thriller.
Prescott was 25/36 for 251 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed four times for 37 yards and another score. Dak was able to connect with Cole Beasley twice and Dez Bryant another time for red-zone scores in the first half, but besides his rushing touchdown to take the lead in the fourth quarter, it was almost all Green Bay in the second half. Dallas is now 2-3, but it's not due to poor play from the quarterback position. Prescott will be a solid QB1 when the Cowboys return from their Week 6 bye and take on the 49ers.
Dak Prescott throws three touchdowns in Cowboys' loss to the Rams.
Prescott played well overall, going 20/36 for 252 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception while adding three carries for 25 yards, but the turnover hurt in a close game. One of Prescott's touchdowns came to Ezekiel Elliott, who made a very athletic play to dive into the end zone. Then he also threw a touchdown to a wide-open James Hanna and another while rolling to his left and hitting Brice Butler on the run in the end zone for 10 yards. Through four games, Prescott is on pace for 3,764 yards, 32 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions, and 356 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. Now Prescott and the Cowboys need to face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers next week in what could be another shootout.
Dak Prescott totals three touchdowns in Cowboys' win.
Prescott played very well on limited pass attempts against the Cardinals, going 13/18 for 183 yards and two touchdowns while rushing three times for 16 yards and a touchdown on the ground. The second-year quarterback threw the ball accurately and showed his playmaking ability, making a few pinpoint throws while on the run including a 53-yard deep-ball touchdown to Brice Butler. The rushing touchdown came on a zone read where Prescott jumped and flipped over into the end zone. The Cowboys return home to play the Rams in Week 4.
Dak Prescott struggles as Broncos blow out the Cowboys in Denver.
The Broncos completely shut down the running game of Dallas and forced the Cowboys to play from behind—something they aren't used to. Prescott was 30/50 for 238 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions, including a pick-six at the end of the game. He also had three carries for 24 rushing yards, which by far led the Cowboys. Prescott's two interceptions are already half his total from last season. This was a tough task for a second-year quarterback heading into Denver against that pass defense with the run game not working, so Prescott should be able to bounce back against the Cardinals in Week 3.
Dak Prescott plays very well in Cowboys’ Week 1 win over the Giants.
Prescott was 24/39 for 268 yards and one touchdown while adding three carries for 24 rushing yards. The second-year quarterback came right out of the gate and looked confident against a team he struggled mightily against as a rookie. He appears to be in total control of the offense and should have a good sophomore season. This win against the Giants was a great start. Prescott does have a difficult matchup next Sunday against Denver so there are probably better options for Week 2, though.
Dak Prescott looks sharp in Cowboys' third preseason game.
Prescott was 11/14 for 113 yards and a touchdown against the Raiders. As the numbers indicate, he threw the ball accurately and moved the ball against the Raiders defense. The touchdown went to hit tight end Jason Witten, and Dak also had two carries for eight yards on the ground. Prescott is looking to take more on his shoulder with Ezekiel Elliott out for the first six games of the season, so he could put up some bigger numbers than his great rookie year.
Dak puts on quick show in first action of 2017.
Prescott was 7/8 for 106 yards, including a touchdown connection with Dez Bryant. Going in the 9th/10th round in fantasy drafts, Prescott's ADP will likely rise a bit after the performance. He will be asked to do a little more with Ezekiel Elliott suspended the first six weeks of the regular season. Dallas plays Oakland in the regular season dress rehearsal next Saturday.
Dak Prescott is "faster and stronger" heading into this season.
According to the Star-Telegram, Prescott tested faster in the 20-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, and other measures. Prescott says he's been working hard to improve. QB coach Wade Wilson said Prescott improved his strength, flexibility, speed, and quickness. Prescott, of course, had an outstanding rookie season, throwing 23 touchdowns compared to just four interceptions. Prescott was already a mid-tier QB1 last season, so he should be a solid QB1, at least, this season.
Dak Prescott wins 2016 Offensive Rookie of the Year.
The award was pretty much between Prescott and his teammate Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott will be back as the Cowboys' starter next season and will be a QB1 with a great offensive line holding him upright.
Dak Prescott and Cowboys eliminated from the playoffs.
