Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott said he is optimistic that he will be able to reach a long-term agreement with the Cowboys after the 2020 season.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be playing under the franchise tag this season, but it appears the two sides made good progress before the July 15 deadline. He will be part of one of the better offenses in the NFL this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys first-round pick WR CeeDee Lamb agreed to a four-year, $14.01 million deal Thursday, July 23. The deal includes a fifth-year option.
Huddle Up: Lamb figures to see a healthy portion of looks in the offense, and he's at least worth a look at the flex spot. He could be worth a low-end WR3 pick.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott did not reach a long-term agreement with the Cowboys before the July 15 deadline and will play under the one-year franchise tag tender offer.
Huddle Up: Prescott was looking for a lucrative offer this offseason but is now scheduled to be a free agent again next offseason. He will be part of one of the top offenses in the NFL this season and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 16 passes of at least 40 yards during the 2019 season, which led the league in the category.
Huddle Up: Prescott is still waiting for a long-term contract but will be the starting quarterback for at least the 2020 season. He will have one of the top receiving corps to work with this upcoming season and should be considered a No. 1 quarterback in all fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (illness) said he is feeling better but is not able to work out at this point. Elliott said he dealt with coughing and shortness of breath for a day or two because of COVID-19.
Huddle Up: Elliott should be ready to go for the start of training camp and will continue to be a focal point on offense for the Cowboys. He should be one of the first players selected in fantasy drafts and will be a No. 1 running back each week.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is just the seventh quarterback ever with at least 90 touchdown passes and 20 rushing touchdowns over a four-season span. He is the first QB to accomplish the feat in his first four seasons. He has 97 career touchdown passes and 21 rushing TDs.
Huddle Up: The production on the ground may not be sustainable as Prescott is paired with RB Ezekiel Elliott, who handles the bulk of all rushing work when healthy and active. The passing production should continue to rise, however, following the selection of WR CeeDee Lamb in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He joins WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup and gives Prescott one of the best supporting casts in the NFL for the foreseeable future.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott officially signed his one-year tender offer Monday, June 22. Official financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be the starting quarterback in Dallas for at least one more season but does have three weeks to agree to a long-term deal. He should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.
Posted 6/21/2020 7:52 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is not close to an agreement on a long-term contract with the Cowboys at this point, according to sources. Prescott does plan to sign his one-year tender.
Huddle Up: The two sides have a little less than a month to reach a long-term agreement, so fantasy players can keep an eye on the situation. Prescott will be the starting quarterback for the Cowboys in 2020 and should be a No. 1 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper had 15 receptions on targets of 20-plus yards downfield in 2019, which tied for second in the league among pass-catchers.
Huddle Up: Cooper's deep-threat role could become even more cemented this season with the addition of CeeDee Lamb, who is expected to work more underneath. Translation: Cooper may not have as many receptions but a higher percentage should be big plays, keeping his low-end WR1 stock locked in.
Posted 6/12/2020 3:46 am UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR Michael Gallup became only the 70th player in league history to amass at least 1,100 receiving yards in his first and/or second NFL season in 2019.
Huddle Up: Gallup recorded one of the quieter 1,100-yard receiving seasons in and promptly went from an under-the-radar fantasy prospect in 2020 to the forgotten man in the Cowboys' passing attack as soon as they drafted CeeDee Lamb. Things are lining up nicely for Dallas to throw the ball all over the field this year, and it seems more probable than not Gallup will enjoy another 1,000-yard campaign. Gallup should be viewed as a WR3 in fantasy this summer with significant upside.
Posted 6/06/2020 4:14 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott topped all quarterbacks with 392 air yards lost on dropped passes in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus data.
Huddle Up: These things tend to regress to the mean the ensuing season. Regardless, Prescott still finished as fantasy's No. 2 quarterback, and his receiving corps has only gotten better this offseason. Now, about that pesky contract ...
Posted 5/30/2020 4:48 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has yet to sign his exclusive franchise tag and has not been participating in the team's virtual offseason workout program. But head coach Mike McCarthy says he has little concern about Prescott. 'He's involved in a business situation and I have full confidence that he'll be ready to go,' McCarthy said on a recent media conference call. '... There has been communication. I mean this is the way these business situations go sometimes. You respect that. I have all the confidence it will work out.'
Huddle Up: The first key deadline is July 15 -- the date when Prescott must sign his franchise tag if he doesn't have a new contract in place. If you're drafting before then, he remains a solid top-five fantasy QB option.
Posted 5/30/2020 12:49 am UTC
Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott rushed for at least 10 yards on 38 carries during the 2019 regular season, which ranked fourth in the NFL.
Huddle Up: Elliott posted the third 1,000-yard season of his career in 2019 and also finished with 12 touchdowns. He has been one of the top running backs in the NFL since being drafted and likely will be selected in the first round of all fantasy leagues.
Posted 5/24/2020 1:35 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott reportedly is interested in a four-year contract extension, while the team is interested in a five-year contract, according to a source. A potential deal could make Prescott No. 1 or No. 2 among NFL quarterbacks in either average salary or guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Prescott is coming off what was probably the best season of his career statistically (4,902 passing yards, 30 touchdowns and 11 interceptions) and those numbers should only improve now that WR CeeDee Lamb is in the fold. He should be among the first quarterbacks selected in this year's fantasy football drafts.
Posted 5/21/2020 5:35 pm UTC
Updating an ongoing story, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott turned down a five-year, $175 million contract offer, according to NBC Sports' Chris Simms. It would have made Prescott the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history. His representation reportedly is seeking a deal that will play him more than $45 million for the final season of a new contract.
Huddle Up: It feels like this situation is going nowhere. In 2020, Prescott is a midrange No. 1 fantasy football passer, and what his future holds in Dallas is anyone's guess at this point.
Posted 5/16/2020 6:03 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith has mainly played middle linebacker the last two seasons, but there is speculation that Smith could be moved to the weak side this coming season under new defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
Huddle Up: Definitely something to keep an eye on in IDP leagues as Smith has had at least 121 tackles in each of the last seasons while totaling 6.5 sacks.

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott will be one of the biggest beneficiaries with the Cowboys drafting WR CeeDee Lamb in the first round, according to a team beat reporter. Per Pro Football Focus, Elliott averaged 5.1 yards per carry when rushing in 11 personnel, fifth-highest among the 23 NFL players with at least 80 eligible carries in 2019. Additionally, Elliott led the NFL in rushing yards from 11 personnel with 823 yards on 161 attempts. With WRs Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and Lamb, defenses must respect the Cowboys' ability to pass and generally will be forced to replace at least one linebacker with a defensive back, switching to a nickel or dime sub-package.
Huddle Up: The Cowboys' passing-game additions are clearly opening things up for Zeke, who has finished as a top-five fantasy running back in three of his four pro seasons. Lamb's arrival only helps cement Elliott's place among the elite fantasy options. 's

Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb should have 'plenty of opportunities' in 2020 because of the departures of Houston Texans WR Randall Cobb and Las Vegas Raiders TE Jason Witten, according to Dan Parr of NFL.com. Cobb and Witten accounted for 166 targets in 2019, according to Pro Football Reference.
Huddle Up: Having Cobb and Witten out of the picture helps, but Lamb will still be competing for targets with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. His production could be volatile from one week to the next, but Lamb could become a flex option in Year 1, and he's a lock to be selected in the first round of rookie drafts.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott boasts a career record of 40-24 as an NFL starter. In his 40 wins, he has thrown for 75 touchdowns versus only 10 interceptions, completed 69.2 percent of his passes and compiled a passer rating of 112.2. In his 24 losses, he has thrown for only 22 TDs versus 26 interceptions, completed 61.1 percent of his throws and compiled a passer rating of 76.0.
Huddle Up: Although one would expect there to be a sizable gap between a quarterback's performance in wins and losses, the disparity between Prescott's splits is quite significant. At the very least, it suggests he doesn't have a strong case when it comes to potentially being the highest-paid quarterback in the league. Fortunately for him, few quarterbacks have a more talented trio of receivers at their disposal than he does heading into the season. As a result, he should be among the first quarterbacks off the board in drafts.
Posted 5/10/2020 2:04 am UTC
Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb gained 605 yards on 25 catches from the slot at Oklahoma last season.
Huddle Up: With Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup also in the fold, Lamb could struggle to find consistent targets in 2020. However, his ability to line up in multiple spots and produce big plays should allow him to make the most of the balls that do come his way. Lamb is more valuable in dynasty formats, but he has upside as a flex option in standard leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will not have the franchise tag offer rescinded by the team, Cowboys director of player personnel Stephen Jones said Friday, May 8. 'Absolutely not,' Jones said on the Pro Football Talk podcast. 'Dak's our quarterback for the future. Obviously, this hasn't been the easiest thing. As Jerry says, 'As money gets bigger, deals get harder.' Certainly, we're talking a significant amount of money here which he so deserves. Absolutely not. Dak's going to be our quarterback this year. He's our quarterback for the future. We think the world of him. He represents our franchise in a very positive way in terms of what we want as a leader of our team. He's just an outstanding man, and we would never rescind the franchise tag.'
Huddle Up: Dak finished second among fantasy QBs in terms of total points in 2019, and his surrounding cast has only gotten better over the offseason with the addition of first-round draft pick CeeDee Lamb. As long as his contract situation doesn't dissolve into a holdout, look for Prescott to finish among the top five fantasy QBs once again.
Posted 5/07/2020 10:51 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott will be signed to a long-term contract, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones Wednesday, May 6. 'Dak is the quarterback of our franchise now, and for many years to come,' Jones said. 'We've gotta get his contract--we've gotta get over that hurdle. But we'll do it, it'll ultimately get done.' Jones also said the free-agent signing of QB Andy Dalton has no bearing on Prescott's status with the team.
Huddle Up: Prescott is coming off the best season of his career and will turn 27 years old in late July. The addition of WR Amari Cooper last season boosted his fantasy stock greatly and the selection of WR CeeDee Lamb in the 2020 NFL Draft should provide another boost. Prescott is likely to be one of the first 5-8 QBs off the board in 2020 drafts.
Posted 5/03/2020 8:03 pm UTC
Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 70.1 percent of his passes last season on straight dropback passes - defined as a pass where the quarterback didn't use play action or throw a screen - making him the most accurate quarterback on such throws in the NFL.
Huddle Up: This number only figures to get better in 2020 after the Cowboys added Mike McCarthy and drafted CeeDee Lamb in the first round. While Dallas' receivers may be a bit hit-or-miss moving forward, the fact that Prescott has three very talented wideouts at his disposal figures to set him up for a great deal of success. Fantasy owners should consider Prescott a top-five quarterback this season with overall QB1 upside.
Posted 4/30/2020 1:25 pm UTC
The Cincinnati Bengals are releasing QB Andy Dalton.
Huddle Up: With little to no interest on the trade market, it will be interesting to see which teams have interest in Dalton on the free-agent market.
Posted 4/28/2020 4:28 am UTC
Dallas Cowboys rookie WR CeeDee Lamb brings home-run hitting potential to the Cowboys' offense, according to NBC 5 Sports Director Newy Scruggs.
Huddle Up: The offense in Dallas is looking special, which might be necessary to offset their potential defensive challenges. Lamb should immediately be within the team's top-three receiver sets, but will there be enough volume for everyone? His value is much higher in dynasty formats; in single-year leagues, consider him a flex play.
