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.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 vs. New Orleans Saints
Dak Prescott had probably his best game of the season on Thanksgiving completing a season-high 71 percent of his passes and throwing for 289 yards and two touchdowns. He has now gone three straight games without throwing an interception. Prescott is still getting pressured but has handled it much better and his decision making has been sharp.
The Cowboys will face the Saints who are in 21st in aFPA to quarterbacks. New Orleans defense has been opportunistic, so Prescott needs to continue to play smart football. Even with the current winning streak and better play, keep Prescott on the bench for Week 13 as solid QB2.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 12 vs. Washington Redskins
Dak Prescott had a solid game last week throwing for 208 yards. He didn't throw any interceptions but threw zero touchdowns as well. He did score a rushing touchdown for the second straight game. Prescott is not putting up great fantasy numbers but he is helping the Cowboys win.
Dallas will face rival Washington who is seventh in aFPA to quarterbacks. Prescott faced the Redskins in Week 7 where he threw for 273 yards and a touchdown. In five games against the Skins, Prescott has not thrown a pick but has thrown only four touchdowns in five games.
We don't expect the numbers to get better any time soon and with a tough matchup, Prescott rates a solid QB2. He should remain on the bench for Week 12.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 11 at Atlanta Falcons
Dak Prescott had one of his best games of the season on Sunday night. He completed 72 percent of his passes for 270 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 31 yards and another score. It wasn't a great fantasy outing, but a solid one for the Cowboys signal caller, and he did help Dallas to a big win.
Prescott will try to replicate that on Sunday against the Falcons. It's a great matchup as the Falcons are ranked 31st in aFPA to quarterbacks. Prescott's recent play has been boosted by the acquisition of WR Amari Cooper which has helped the Dallas offense overall. We expect a solid performance in Week 11 for Prescott, but not enough to warrant a starting spot on your team. Keep him on the bench as a solid QB1 against Atlanta.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 10 at Philadelphia Eagles
Dak Prescott did not play poorly on Monday night, but the Cowboys offense was still lacking big plays. The result was a home loss and now it's desperation time for Dallas, and an even bigger microscope on Prescott. He threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, but turned the ball over twice.
Prescott will face the Eagles who are ranked ninth in aFPA to quarterbacks. He has struggled against Philadelphia in his career, averaging 162 passing yards per game while throwing only three touchdowns and four interceptons. Prescott is still not a good play for your fantasy team and should remain on the bench for Week 10 as a low-end QB2.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 9 vs. Tennessee Titans
Before the bye week, Dak Prescott threw for a season-high 273 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for a score in the loss to the Redskins. His numbers have been average across the board, but many think it's because the talent level of the receivers is low. So, the Cowboys went out and acquired Amari Cooper from the Raiders.
Prescott will face the Titans who are 11th in aFPA to quarterbacks. We will see if Cooper helps Prescott's numbers but for Week 9, he ranks a QB2 so keep him on the bench against Tennessee.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 7 at Washington Redskins
Dak Prescott was very efficient in the Cowboys upset over Jacksonville. He completed 63 percent of his passes which is just above his season average. Prescott threw for only 183 yards but did throw two touchdown passes and zero INTs. Not turning the ball over was key in this game for him.
Now, the Cowboys play division rival Washington who is seventh in aFPA to quarterbacks. It was a good game last week from a team standpoint for Prescott, but you can expect about the same type of numbers this Sunday against the 'Skins. Prescott rates a low-end QB2 at best.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 6 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Dak Prescott struggled at times against Houston on Sunday. He did complete 62% of his passes, but threw 2 INTs in the loss. Prescott has not thrown for a lot of yardage and only five touchdowns in five games.
It won't get any easier this week as Prescott faces the Jaguars defense who are 3rd in aFPA to quarterbacks. Jacksonville's defensive backs have been hard on opposing quarterbacks so expectations are low for Prescott. Keep him on the bench for Week 6. He has been a player who has not even ranked QB2 most weeks.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 at Houston Texans
Dak Prescott hasn't been very fantasy relevant in 2018 but he did have a good game in the Cowboys win against the Lions. He threw for 255 yards which was the first time he eclipsed the 200 yard mark this season. He also threw his first multi-touchdown game of the season. So, baby steps for Prescott heading into a matchup with cross-state rival Houston.
The Texans are 28th in aFPA to quarterbacks, but even with a positive matchup, we need to see more progress and consistency from Prescott to consider him a fantasy option. He should still remain on the waiver wire for Week 5.

DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 4 vs. Detroit Lions
Dak Prescott had his worst game of the season. He didn't get any help from his offensive line as he was sacked five times. He also threw his lowest completion percentage of the season and first two interceptions. Prescott has been held to under 200 passing yards in all three games.
The Cowboys face a Lions defense ranked 14th in aFPA to quarterbacks. Not that that will help him this week. He has really regressed since his rookie season and is not getting any help from an offense with very few weapons. Keep Prescott on the bench for Week 4 and he should still be on the waiver wire in most leagues.
