Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) is on schedule with his recovery from ankle surgery, but head coach Mike McCarthy did not have a definite timetable for his return.
Huddle Up: Prescott will be a free agent again this offseason, but the Cowboys probably will consider using the franchise tag for the second straight season. He should be a starting quarterback for a team next season if he continues to recover and can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback in all leagues.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is expected to receive the franchise tag again during the offseason, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Prescott will not play again until 2021 because of his leg injury, but it seems like he will be with the Cowboys again. He can be a No. 1 fantasy quarterback next season if he is healthy.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) had successful surgery to repair a compound fracture and dislocation of the right ankle, a source said Sunday, Oct. 11. The surgery went 'very well', and the operation was done by a noted foot and ankle doctor to do the repair.
Huddle Up: As long as Prescott is sidelined it will be the Andy Dalton show in Big D. It's more than likely that Prescott is done for the season, although fantasy owners will want to wait until official word comes down before casting him to the waiver wire.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) will have ankle surgery on Sunday, Oct. 11, according to sources.
Huddle Up: It was a terrible scene in Dallas as he left the field, and now it appears Andy Dalton will be under center for the Cowboys for the rest of the season. It's not official Dak is out for the year, but it certainly appears to be looking that way.

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (ankle) was taken to a local hospital for further evaluation after leaving the Week 5 game against the New York Giants due to a right ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Prescott likely suffered either a dislocated or broken ankle, and was visibly upset on the cart leaving the field. He was in tears after his teammates all wished him well, and he pointed to the guy and then acknowledged the cheering fans. It is just speculation, but it might be a while before we see No. 4 on the field again. Andy Dalton takes the reins of the offense for now.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered what appeared to be a serious left ankle or leg injury in the second half of Week 5 against the New York Giants. He was tackled on a rushing play and went down immediately. The cart came out immediately, and he was taken off after several minutes on the ground.
Huddle Up: It appears to be a serious injury, and Dak was in tears as he was carted off in front of his teammates who nearly all came over to wish him well. He has never missed a start in his career, but now it's Andy Dalton time, perhaps for a while.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 41-of-58 passes for 502 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns. He is the first quarterback in NFL history with at least 450 passing yards in three straight games, and he has the most passing yards (1,657) in NFL history through four games.
Huddle Up: Prescott is posting absolutely ridiculously numbers, and fantasy owners have to love Dak playing from behind most weeks in high-scoring games because of a struggling defense. He is also motivated, looking for a huge payday. It's a perfect storm for fantasy owners, so enjoy the ride. He'll look to carve up the New York Giants in Week 5 next.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott leads the league in passing attempts (143), completions (143) and yards (1,188) after three weeks, but head coach Mike McCarthy would prefer more balance with the team attempting approximately 40 passes and rushing the ball 30 times per game.
Huddle Up: Prescott is third among QBs in total fantasy points, and even 40 attempts per game would add up to a whopping 640 for the season as he tries to keep up with a porous Dallas defense. A stronger ground game could also help boost Prescott's efficiency as he's only thrown for five TDs, so either way he would seem to be locked in as a high-end QB1 for the season.

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 37 of his 57 passes for 472 yards, 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in a Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Prescott also ran six times for 26 yards.
Huddle Up: For the second straight week, Prescott scored huge fantasy numbers as Dallas' defense could do little to slow Seattle down, forcing Dallas to lean heavily on the passing game once again. The two picks were highly unusual from Prescott, though one of them came on a desperation throw with little time left on the clock. A Week 4 matchup with a Browns team that has done better against the run than the pass this year could mean another big game for Prescott.
