Your Dallas Cowboys Quarterback  Dak Prescott

Cowboys Headlines - 92Dak Prescott‘s career couldn’t have gotten off to a better start. Well, a week one win could have made it a bit better.

The Rookie quarterback from Mississippi State has done enough to help the Dallas Cowboys to a 3-1 record.

In week four at San Francisco, Prescott had another efficient game. He completed 23/32 passes for 245 yards and two touchdowns. That’s a 72% completion rate and good for a quarterback rating of 114.7.

He’s pretty good.

In week five, Dak Prescott faces his toughest test since facing the New York Giants in week one.

The Cincinnati Bengals have been really good against the run each of the last two weeks against the Miami Dolphins and the Denver Broncos. The Bengals are holding opponents to 3.8 yards per carry. I mention that to say things could get a bit difficult in the run game, which affects the passing game.

The Bengals are the 10th best defense when it comes to passing yards allowed. However, they are one of only four NFL teams to have allowed more than 10 passing touchdowns through four weeks.

Dak Prescott has improved each week. This is going to be a tough matchup for Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys, but I still see Prescott as worthy of a start in 16 team leagues or superflex (QB/WR/RB/TE Flex) leagues.

Flawless Forecast: 225 yards, One Passing touchdown, one rushing touchdown.
