Dak Prescott

Typically, quarterbacks are not drafted early outside of Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes. However, within the second group of quarterbacks is Dak Prescott who had the potential to finish in the Top 5 with some of the players around him.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t been the case and in one-quarterback leagues, it is hard to imagine starting him with any confidence at this point. Through five games, Prescott has not had a game with more than 300 passing yards or three touchdowns.

His best finish though was against the Chargers in Week 6 where he would finish as QB1 with 272 passing yards, 40 rushing yards, two total touchdowns and no turnovers, according to FantasyPros.

The problem is that it was only one game and the Chargers have been awful defending quarterbacks this season. Prior to that game, Prescott was trending in the wrong direction as he had been sacked eight times over the past three games and thrown four interceptions to only three touchdowns.
