Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals

All WR vs ARI

FBG says: Bad matchup. Dak Prescott and company received the benefit of an unnaturally pass-heavy game script last week as Prescott attempted a career-high 50 passes, completing 60% of them for 238 yards and two touchdowns. Prescott also made a few costly mistakes though, coughing up two interceptions--one of which went to Aqib Talib in the end zone, who ran it back 102 yards for a touchdown. Prescott really forced the ball to his primary weapons on offense, targeting Dez Bryant a staggering 16 times and Jason Witten 13 times. Bryant was well covered for most of the game, hauling in only seven receptions for 59 yards with a touchdown. Witten led the offense with 10 receptions for 97 yards and a touchdown as well. It is worth noting that Dak Prescott seemingly sustained an ankle injury during the second half last week, but he finished the game and did not appear on Monday's injury report. Keep an eye out by Thursday for any significant updates on Prescott's status for the weekend. The Cardinals secondary started with a rough showing in Week 1 against the Lions, but they bounced back with a much better outing against a struggling Colts offense last week. Patrick Peterson did an excellent job shutting down T.Y. Hilton, while Tyrann Mathieu held Kamar Aiken to only a 33% catch rate (3 of 9 targets) out of the slot. Both Tyvon Branch and Antoine Bethea have played well over the top so far this season also, limiting the Colts to only one play of 20 or more yards last week. Cole Beasley will have a tough time out of the slot, while Dez Bryant will likely draw shadow coverage from Patrick Peterson. Cardinals Linebacker Haason Reddick struggled in pass coverage last week allowing a number of catches to tight end Jack Doyle, so look for some upside from Jason Witten if he can find space in the middle of the field as the Cardinals linebackers have not played well in their first two games this season.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs DEN (8 / 4 / 33 / 0 rec)

Beasley saw a robust eight targets, but was 16% of Dallas' team total as they were forced into a catch-up mode attack in Denver. Beasley struggled against slot maven cornerback Chris Harris and his best opportunity for a splash play produced one of Dak Prescott's most inaccurate throws of the game. On a wide open crossing route, with room for yards after the catch, Prescott misfired on third down to thwart Beasley's big play potential.

2017 Week 1 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)

Beasley's opportunities for impact were limited in the comfortable win over the Giants. However, Beasley converted two key third down plays including the highlight catch of Week 1. Beasley bobbled an out route target, only to corral the pass on his back with one hand as he continued to the out of bounds line. On the other occasion, Beasley pivoted back to the inside after the catch for additional yardage to convert a third down.
