DAL QB Dak Prescott - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
After a dip in his numbers during his second season, Dak Prescott put up even better numbers than his rookie season. He raised his completion percentage up to 67% and his yardage to a career-high 3,885 yards. His passing touchdowns stayed the same but interceptions dropped from 13 to eight. The biggest thing about Prescott is that he wins and although that isn’t a fantasy stat, it does secure him as the QB in Big D for years to come. Last year, the Cowboys helped him by getting him a No. 1 wide receiver in Amari Cooper who he will have for a full season in 2019.

Fantasy Downside
Prescott wants a new contract and if the Cowboys don’t give it to him, it could be a distraction. There were also some issues with the offensive line as he was sacked 56 times in 2018 which is only one less than the previous two years combined. So, even though he has not missed a start in his three-year career, those hits could catch up with him.

2019 Bottom Line
Prescott isn’t an elite quarterback and he will enter 2019 ranked a high-end QB2. So, if you are taking him as your starting fantasy quarterback, it will be risky. Still, Prescott is entering the prime of his career and with Jason Witten returning and a full season of Cooper, his passing yardage should be close to the 4,000-yard mark with 25 touchdowns. The hope is he gets sacked less and Cowboys will probably tell him to be even more conservative in the running game where he has averaged 312 yards per season.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 19 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 19 at Los Angeles Rams

Dak Prescott had another efficient game for the Cowboys although not anything special for fantasy. He did throw a touchdown pass and ran for another. He did complete 2/3 of his passes and helped the Cowboys to a playoff win.

Prescott has a good matchup in Los Angeles. The Rams were 23rd in aFPA to quarterbacks this season. But LA also was not good against the run and that's where the Cowboys will focus their offense. Keep Prescott on the bench for Week 19 as he ranks in the lower tier of playoff QBs.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 18 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 18 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Dak Prescott had a strong regular season finale throwing for 387 yards and four touchdowns. The Cowboys decided to play Prescott the whole game despite it being a meaningless game. It could be a confidence booster for the Cowboys passing game.

Dallas will face Seattle in the playoffs and the Seahawks are ranked 27th in aFPA to quarterbacks. There is little doubt Prescott had turned around his season and we expect the Cowboys to still ride Ezekiel Elliot but they do feel they can win throwing the football. Start Prescott in all leagues for Week 18. It's a good matchup at home for him.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at New York Giants

Dak Prescott had an efficient game last week against Tampa, completing 80 percent of his passes and two combined touchdowns. The Cowboys passing game has been in good hands with him and he has worked his way up the fantasy rankings.

However, the Cowboys are locked into the No. 4 seed in the NFC and the game is meaningless. So, there is a good chance Prescott doesn't play the whole game. That gives him zero value for Week 17. Don't play Prescott in any leagues.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

We will give a pass to Dak Prescott and the Dallas offense last week as a bump in the road. The Cowboys offense has been very good over the last month and we expect a bounce-back game. Prescott was held in check as he failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 11.

Prescott will face the Bucs this week who rank 18th in aFPA to quarterbacks. He is back home in Dallas where the Cowboys offense has been much better. Expect Prescott to return to form against a struggling Tampa defense. Start him as solid QB1 for Week 16.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 at Indianapolis Colts

Dak Prescott had his best game of the season and raised his fantasy stock in the process. He completed 42 of 54 passes for 455 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the Eagles. The only negative was he did throw two interceptions, but when you throw that many passes, you can expect a hiccup here or there.

Prescott has another good matchup this week when he faces the Colts who are 27th in aFPA to quarterbacks. There is no doubt Prescott has been much better since the arrival of WR Amari Cooper and the numbers spell that out. Prescott should be in your starting lineup for Week 15 as a low-end WR1. He is riding a hot streak right now so jump aboard.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Dak Prescott will face the Eagles for the second time this season after facing them in Week 10 which started this current winning streak. He has really been steady, although unspectacular during that four-game stretch. Prescott has thrown four touchdown passes and zero interceptions, with three rushing touchdowns. Against the Eagles, he did throw for 270 yards and account for two Dallas touchdowns.

Philly is ranked 22nd in aFPA to quarterbacks. Even with a decent matchup and some great play over the past month, that is not good enough for Prescott to be in your starting lineup for Week 14. Keep him on the bench as a solid QB2.
