Cowboys QB Tony Romo acknowledges that Dak Prescott is the starter

PFT - [Full Article]

Tony Romo acknowledged today that he is now the Cowboys’ second-string quarterback, and that Dak Prescott has earned the position ahead of Romo on the depth chart.

Dak Prescott, and what he’s done, he’s earned the right to be our quarterback,” Romo said in a prepared statement. “As hard as that is for me to say, he’s earned that right. He’s guided our team to an 8-1 record, and that’s hard to do. If you think for a second I don’t want to be out there, then you probably never felt the pure ecstasy of competing and winning. That hasn’t left me. In fact, it may burn now more than ever.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Dak Prescott owners can breathe a little easier, but the Cowboys may still turn to Romo if the rookie hits a rough patch.
