Fantasy Predictions: Start Or Sit Dak Prescott?


Dak Prescott has been pretty impressive to start off his career with the Dallas Cowboys. He has stepped in from Week 1 and did everything needed in order for Cowboys to be successful. You can see that he is earning more trust from his teammates and coaches with each passing week.

Bye weeks have arrived, and that is always a special time in the world of Fantasy Football. You need to find players who will start for your squad since you have some unavailable players due to the bye week. Dak Prescott is now a valuable option for Fantasy owners, but can you trust him against the Bengals?

In his four starts so far he has thrown only 3 TDs, and that is not what Fantasy owners like. But, those Touchdown tosses came in the last two weeks. He had one against the Bears and two against the Niners last week. Also, he has thrown for over 227 yards in each of his games. No picks so far, but that won’t continue, and who knows, he just might throw one this game.

And we think he will. We recommend you not to start Dak Prescott. This is not a great matchup for him and Bengals passing defense has become much better the minute Burfict came back from his suspension. They have a good all-around defense, and Dak will have to struggle and work hard to get anything done in this match.

We think he will end up with 240 passing yards and ten rushing yards to go along with one TD and one INT. Cowboys will be playing from behind in the 4th quarter, and that is where rookie QB will throw the first pick of his career. When translated, it is the total of 14.6 points for your QB on Fantasy. If you really don’t have a better option than him this week, you, of course, need to start him. But in most cases, leave him on your bench for this round.
