According to the NFL Network's Jane Slater, Dak Prescott was involved in last minute discussions regarding a long-term deal with the Dallas Cowboys. The reported offer was said to be in the $33-$35M dollar range, with $110 million guaranteed.
Being in contract talks down to the deadline is one thing, actually being close to a deal is another. The Cowboys will let Dak Prescott play the season on the franchise tag before potentially looking to hammer out a long-term deal next summer. Franchising him a second time would be expensive, but may still be the course of action the Cowboys take. Dak was excellent in 2019, and currently sits as our number three overall quarterback for the 2020 season. Dak now has an even more explosive supporting cast than he did last season, and may be looking to play his way into a Patrick Mahomes like payday. Prescott does not project to be adversely affected by the lack of a long term deal, and should remain one of fantasy football’s elite producers at the quarterback position.
