Prescott had a career year, finishing second overall in fantasy quarterback scoring. He threw for nearly 5,000 yards and had 33 total touchdowns to 11 interceptions. Prescott had 11 multiple touchdown games, posting consistent numbers throughout the season. He also had seven 300-yard games. He gets a new coach this year, Mike McCarthy, which could change things for him some going forward. The good news is Aaron Rodgers had his best seasons with McCarthy at the helm. He is a quarterback friendly coach that should get the best out of Prescott. Prescott has 28 or more touchdowns three straight seasons. Prescott is an accurate quarterback that makes great decisions. He does a good job of taking care of the football but isn't afraid to take chances down the field. He also can make plays with his legs, rushing for more than 1,200 yards while scoring six rushing touchdowns each of his first three seasons in the NFL.
FANTASY OUTLOOK: Prescott has moved into the elite company of fantasy quarterbacks, especially after the hire of McCarthy. Plus, he has two great receivers to work with in the passing game and a top offensive line. Things are looking good for Prescott to enjoy another big season. Expect around 4,500-passing yards, 35 total touchdowns and around 300-rushing yards. He should be one of the first quarterbacks off the board come draft day.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has been a good fantasy quarterback for a few years now, but 2020 should be his chance to jump into the elite tier. He had some flashes of elite quarterback play in 2019, but inefficiency in the passing game kept him from consistently strong performances. His running ability raises his floor and does help his ceiling a bit as well. With CeeDee Lamb joining Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Ezekiel Elliott on the Cowboys offense, Prescott has almost an embarrassment of riches in terms of weapons to play with. There are some rumblings that Prescott hasn't been thrilled with the Cowboys regarding contract extension talks, but the prevailing thought is that it will all be worked out and Prescott will be a Cowboy for a long time. He's one of the better quarterback options in most fantasy formats thanks to his considerable upside paired with a high floor.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott completed exactly the amount of pressured passes as was expected in 2019, but he also attempted the third-most pressured passes (144) of anyone on NFL.com's Nick Shook's list of top-10 QBs under pressure. He's also one of just two passers on the list to break 1,000 passing yards under pressure. Prescott's 7:3 touchdown-to-interception ratio while under pressure looks pretty good. The young passer is tied with Philip Rivers for the fourth-most TD passes completed under pressure since 2016, with 19. He also has the highest single-season completion percentage above expectation under pressure in a single season since 2016. With or without a long-term contract extension in Dallas this summer, Prescott will likely be the third QB off the board in fantasy drafts behind Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott tops NFL.com's Nick Shook's list of the top-10 deep passers from the 2019 season. Prescott relied mostly on wide receiver Amari Cooper, who was efficient on deep targets by catching 12 passes for 386 yards and two touchdowns on passes 20-plus yards downfield. Prescott had a completion percentage of 44.4 percent and an expected completion percentage of 31 percent on deep throws, with a TD-to-interception ratio of 6:2 and a passer rating of 109.7. Now that rookie wideout CeeDee Lamb is in the mix, he has some of the best surrounding offensive weapons in the league. Prescott had a career year in 2019 despite not making the playoffs and could be even better in 2020. He's coming off the board as the No. 3 fantasy QB behind Lamar Jackson and Patrick Mahomes.
While opposing defenses often pressed Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper at the line of scrimmage last year, he had an average of 2.6 yards of separation by the time the ball arrived. He also had a tight-window percentage of 25.2, but for the most part, Cooper was able to successful beat press coverage. Quarterback Dak Prescott had a 114.4 passer rating when targeting his top receiver, and Cooper had a 23.8 percent average of targets per routes run in Dallas' offense. Cooper had a catch rate of 66.4 percent and an expected catch rate of 57.8 percent. It will be interesting to see how the addition of rookie CeeDee Lamb will affect Cooper's efficiency and target share in 2020. The 25-year-old should be considered a low-end WR1 target in fantasy drafts.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has not yet signed the franchise tender as he seeks a long-term deal from the team. History suggests the sides will come together before the July 15 deadline or Prescott may not be with Dallas beyond this season.

Prescott is coming off the best season of his four-year career throwing for 4,902 yards and 30 touchdowns. He enters fantasy draft season as a top-three option at quarterback in fantasy.

'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.'
