Dak Prescott 2020 Fantasy Football Recap

Dak Prescott was on pace for one of the best fantasy seasons ever for a quarterback before suffering a devastating, season-ending ankle injury in Week 5 against the New York Giants. The 2016 fourth-round pick had already eclipsed 400 passing yards in three of four games when he went down. Prescott had put up at least 47 attempts in each of those games as well, as Dallas’ defense forced the issue by surrendering 127 points during the sample.

Dak Prescott 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

The word is Prescott will be ready to go without restrictions by training camp, which should set him up with plenty of preparation time ahead of the regular season. The fifth-year veteran also has his long-standing contact situation squared away for the time being, as he inked a lucrative four-year deal this offseason.

Most importantly, Prescott will return his top three wideouts from last season, as Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb are all ready to roll for 2021. Prescott also gets back emerging tight end Blake Jarwin, who preceded him in injury last season when he tore his ACL in Week 1. Jarwin, who’d put together a combined 58-672-6 line in a part-time role over the previous two campaigns, is projected to be a full training camp participant.

Dak Prescott 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)

Prescott should be set to pick up right where he left off in 2020, with one potentially important difference — the Dallas defense should be markedly better, considering the addition of Micah Parsons in the middle through the first round of the draft. Therefore, the Cowboys will certainly strive to pass less than 61.4 percent of the time, as they did last season despite Prescott missing the last 11-plus games. Nevertheless, there’s no question the passing game will be a major focus, and given the weapons at his disposal, it’s difficult to envision Prescott finishing any lower than QB5 if he remains healthy for all 17 games.
