From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Kellen Moore's play calls and the myriad of weapons around Dak Prescott have made his job a lot easier this year. This week he gets an extended practice against Miami. He's an elite top five fantasy quarterback going forward.

Week 3: vs Miami Dolphins

All QB vs MIA

FBG says: Great matchup. Dak Prescott continued his impressive start to the season last week, passing for three touchdowns and 269 yards as he completed a stellar 86.7 percent of his 30 pass attempts. Prescott now has seven touchdowns to start the season as he has looked like one of the top quarterbacks in the league under his new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. Amari Cooper found the end zone for the second straight week, but he actually finished third in targets behind both Randall Cobb and Michael Gallup as Prescott was spreading the ball around. His top target for the season has been Michael Gallup, who looked impressive last week before suffering a meniscus injury that will sideline him for multiple weeks. Gallup's absence will open the door for Devin Smith to at least temporarily see more playing time. Smith burst onto the scene last week as he hauled in all three of his targets for 74 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown reception on which he showed off his flashy speed. Jason Witten also remains a key cog in this offense. He has been targeted twice in the red zone in back-to-back games and converted on one of those opportunities in each week as he has notched two touchdowns already. After the Dolphins allowed 102 points scored and a league-leading 32.7 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks through the first two weeks, one would think things could not get much worse for this defense. However, the Dolphins decided to trade away one of their top playmaking defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers earlier this week. This makes an already thin defense even thinner, as Fitzpatrick was about as versatile as they come at the defensive back position. They still have a talented young cornerback in Xavien Howard, but the rest of this secondary along with a ho-hum defensive line represents an extreme liability that should have the Cowboys passing offense licking its chops.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs WAS (26 / 30 / 269 / 3 / 1 pass, 5 / 69 / 0 rush)

Prescott's follow-up to his career day (405 yards, four touchdowns) in Week 1 was an 87% completion rate, three more scores, and adding his commonplace impact as a runner. Prescott's interception, his first of the season, was due to a drop by Randall Cobb, tipped into the air. Prescott used all parts of the field against Washington, including a deep post touchdown to new weapon Devin Smith and several rushing forays like his 40-yard zone read scamper. Two of Prescott's mere four incompletions against Washington were a should-have-been interception on a rollout near the goal line and missing a long touchdown opportunity to Michael Gallup as Prescott threw it over the wrong shoulder of Gallup. Prescott looks to continue his hot start against the struggling (putting it mildly) Miami Dolphins in Week 3.

2019 Week 1 vs NYG (25 / 32 / 405 / 4 / 0 pass, 4 / 12 / 0 rush)

Prescott posted a career day, completing nearly 80% of his passes for more than 400 yards and four scores against the overmatched Giants defense. Prescott's biggest progression from previously in his career was his accuracy on intermediate and deep passes, an unlocked area of his game. Prescott drove the field for two touchdown drives in the first 20 minutes of the game and the rout was on against the divisional opponent. Prescott found Michael Gallup on a tight window in-cut throw and a perfect deep throw versus the blitz as Dallas warmed early in the game. Later, Amari Cooper was the target on two on-point deep throws and Prescott also found Blake Jarwin and Randall Cobb down the seam for a touchdown each. Prescott did not even utilize his rushing ability much (12 yards, only one third-down keeper to convert) which has been a staple of his game to-date. The Cowboys get Washington in Week 2, who were boat-raced after staked to an early lead against the Eagles in Week 1.

Cowboys | Dallas nearing deal with Dak Prescott? (Mon Sep 9, 01:28 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is reportedly very close to agreeing to terms on a contract extension, as team owner Jerry Jones believes something will get done 'on an imminent basis.'

Our View: The Cowboys have taken care of most of their stars but they still have to work out new contracts with Prescott and WR Amari Cooper. Prescott can play at a high level, just like he did in Week 1, and the team needs to lock down their franchise quarterback. The sooner, the better and it sounds like we are close to seeing Prescott being one of the highest paid in the league.
