DAL QB Dak Prescott - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 vs. New York Giants
The struggles in Dallas are not enough to slow down Dak Prescott's fantasy campaign as he has now thrown for 450 yards in three consecutive games and has 12 total touchdowns on the season. Prescott is playing at a high level, but some of his gaudy stats can be attributed to the Cowboys' horrific defense which has required the Dallas offense to light up the scoreboard on a weekly basis to have any shot at winning. The Dallas defense does not look like it is going to improve anytime soon, so Prescott should continue to throw at close to a league-leading clip. The Giants rank in the top 10 of our schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed metric for opposing quarterbacks, meaning Prescott is set up with a nice matchup in a game the Cowboys will be desperate to win. He should be started weekly as a high-end QB1 due to his massive ceiling that results from a combination of game script, talent and supporting cast.
