Week 3: vs Miami Dolphins

All WR 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.
