Summary

Dak Prescott is the only member of the Cowboys core that hasn't gotten paid, yet. In spite of a protracted contract negotiation, there's every reason to believe he and the Cowboys will finalize a long-term contract before the season gets underway. Prescott has won 40 games in four seasons, and is coming off a career-best year -- 4,902 yards passing, 65.1% completion rate, 30 touchdowns and just 11 interceptions. While he may not be the best quarterback in the league, there aren't many who have a better resume over the last four seasons. Prescott has steadily improved as a passer, and enters this year with a new head coach in Mike McCarthy -- who got the best years out of Aaron Rodgers. With explosive rookie CeeDee Lamb added to an already formidable receiving corps that includes Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, Prescott is on a short list of players who could finish atop the fantasy rankings.

Latest News

Cowboys | No progress on Dak Prescott talks (Tue Jul 7, 07:36 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has not engaged in contract talks with the team since March, according to a source Monday, July 6. If a long-term extension isn't done by July 15, Prescott will play out the 2020 season under the franchise tag.

Our View: Deals get done at deadlines in the NFL. That deadline is next Wednesday so we're expecting some feverish negotiations to happen over the course of the weekend. Prescott will not get a deal like Patrick Mahomes just got from the Chiefs, but the Cowboys should make him among the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL. Stay tuned.

Cowboys | Dak Prescott hit several long passes (Thu Jul 2, 03:25 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott completed 16 passes of at least 40 yards during the 2019 season, which led the league in the category.

Our View: Prescott should hit even more this year with the addition of Ceedee Lamb. Tight end Blake Jarwin is a sleeper to target in the late rounds after being one of the more explosive tight ends in the league despite playing behind new Las Vegas Raider Jason Witten in the target pecking order.
