Dak Prescott May Command More In Contract Talks

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is still without a new contract. Both sides haven't worked out an agreement. However, as Yahoo Sports' Charles Robinson indicated, Trevor Lawrence's new deal could result in Prescott getting more money. The 30-year-old is coming off another potent season, throwing for 4,516 yards, 36 touchdowns, and nine interceptions while completing a career-high 69.5% of his attempts. Without question, if the Cowboys allow Prescott to reach free agency next offseason, he would command more than enough attention on the open market. In the meantime, Prescott should remain a top fantasy signal-caller, considering he has CeeDee Lamb, arguably the league's top wideout, at his disposal.

Police Won't Pursue Assault Charges For Dak Prescott

Dallas police will not pursue sexual-assault charges against Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, with a police spokesperson saying that detectives determined there was insufficient evidence an offense was committed. The case stemmed from an alleged incident that occurred in 2017 in which a woman said Prescott assaulted her in the back of an SUV in a strip club parking lot. In March, Prescott filed a suit seeking monetary relief in excess of $1 million after receiving a letter in January from attorneys on behalf of the woman that they would "forego pursuing criminal charges, along with disclosing this information to the public, in exchange for compensating her for the mental anguish she has suffered." It's unclear if the NFL is doing their separate investigation, but either way, it doesn't appear likely that Prescott will be in danger of facing a suspension from the league.

Dak Prescott Not Trying To Be Highest-Paid Player

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is entering the final year of his deal in 2024, and he and the organization have not begun contract negotiations. The former fourth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft threw for a career-high 36 touchdowns in 2023, but Dallas suffered another disappointing playoff defeat in the NFC Divisional Round. On his contract situation, Prescott said "I'm not trying to be the highest paid necessarily. We'll wait until the negotiations begin and obviously want to put this team in the best situation." If the 30-year-old is willing to take a home team discount, it could help his chances of reaching a new deal. Star wide receiver CeeDee Lamb and edge rusher Micah Parson will be up for new deals soon, meaning the Cowboys have a lot to figure out over the next few offseasons.

Dak Prescott Hasn't Started Contract Negotiations With Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said that he has not started contract-extension negotiations with the team yet, but he did meet with owner Jerry Jones a few weeks ago to discuss the situation. Prescott said he doesn't want to be the highest-paid QB in the league "necessarily" and wants to put the team in the best situation. The 30-year-old had the best season of his career in 2023, but the team flopped again in the postseason, which could make the Cowboys hesitant to do a long-term deal with the former fourth-round pick in 2016 out of Mississippi State. However, an extension would help Dallas lower Prescott's $55.46 million salary cap hit in 2024. Prescott looked great in 2023, but his lack of rushing at the QB position keeps him from upper-tier QB1 status.

No Indication A Deal Is Coming For Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have a mutual understanding of his contract situation, according to sources, with no offers from Dallas despite Prescott being in a contract year. "We are where we are, locked and loaded for this year," owner Jerry Jones said. With no indication of a new deal coming, it looks like the 30-year-old signal-caller will play out the 2024 season on the final year of his contract. The three-time Pro Bowler threw for 4,516 yards and a league-high 36 touchdowns in 17 regular-season games in one of his best showings, but the Cowboys fell flat in the playoffs yet again. There's still time for the two sides to work something out to help ease the burden of Prescott's $55.46 million salary cap hit this year. Fantasy-wise, Prescott will be a QB1 consolation prize after the elite names at the position come off the board.

Cowboys Restructure Dak Prescott's Contract

The Dallas Cowboys converted a $5 million roster bonus due to quarterback Dak Prescott on Sunday into a signing bonus, creating $4 million in salary cap space for the 2024 season. The move reduces Prescott's salary cap number this year to $55.455 million, while two extra void years were added to his deal for cap purposes (void years now through 2028). It doesn't prevent the Cowboys and Prescott from further negotiating a long-term contract extension, but it gives the team some immediate cap relief. The 30-year-old made his third Pro Bowl in 2023 and had an excellent regular season, throwing for a league-high 36 touchdowns and 4,516 yards while completing a league-high 410 passes. Prescott isn't an elite fantasy QB because of his lack of rushing ability, but he's a fine consolation prize if you don't spend big money on the elite tier.

Dak Prescott "Confident" In A New Deal

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has faith that he and the team will be able to work out a new long-term deal. "I'm definitely confident, obviously it helps the team and it's important for the numbers. I've heard Jerry say that. This is a process, both sides understand that. Everything is great. It will happen," Prescott said. The 30-year-old carries a $59.455 million salary cap hit in 2024, so the Cowboys were hoping to work out a new deal with Prescott before the start of free agency next week. He'll have a base salary of $29 million, and the Cowboys currently sit just over $4 million over the cap. While Prescott isn't an elite fantasy QB1, he's right behind the top tier after delivering a league-high 36 touchdown passes and only nine interceptions while throwing for 4,516 yards in 17 regular-season games in 2023.

Dak Prescott Not A Lock To Receive Extension From Cowboys?

ESPN's Dan Graziano isn't as convinced as most people that quarterback Dak Prescott will get a lucrative contract extension from the Dallas Cowboys. His current salary cap number for 2024 is $59.455 million, which is huge, and an extension would be the obvious way to reduce that number. However, Prescott has a lot of leverage with one year left on his current deal and a clause in his contract that prohibits the team from franchising him. The 30-year-old hasn't made it easy on Dallas in the past, either. If the two sides don't make progress on a deal, the Cowboys could save around $18.5 million in cap space by converting Prescott's 2024 salary into a signing bonus without adding any more void years. However, doing that would result in Dallas carrying a cap charge of around $55 million on Prescott in 2025.

Mike McCarthy Puts Faith In Dak Prescott

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, who is being retained for the final year of his contract in 2024 despite another early playoff exit, has full confidence in quarterback Dak Prescott moving forward. "I believe in Dak Prescott," McCarthy said. The head coach also called Prescott "part of the solution moving forward." The 30-year-old signal-caller made his third Pro Bowl in 2023 and led the NFL in completions (410) and touchdown passes (36) during the regular season while throwing for 4,516 yards and only nine interceptions after leading the NFL with 15 picks in 2022. Playoff issues aside, Prescott was in the MVP conversation all year and has put himself in the high-end QB1 picture for fantasy drafts heading into the 2024 season.

Dak Prescott Throws 60 Times In Wild-Card Loss

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott piled up yards in a Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Prescott attempted 60 passes, completing 41 of them for 403 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. He took four sacks, losing 16 yards, and picked up 45 yards on the ground on six rush attempts. Prescott was solid all season, but this was a game where his fantasy numbers looked a whole lot better than his performance on the field. Despite the three touchdowns and the 403 yards, he ended up with a QBR of just 43.3. The Cowboys certainly have a lot of questions to answer before next season, but Prescott's job as QB1 is safe.

Dak Prescott A Top Choice On Wild-Card Weekend

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the top fantasy options on Wild Card Weekend. The Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers as Prescott will look to continue a hot streak that saw him finish the regular season with two top-seven finishes (QB7 in Week 17, QB3 in Week 18). The Packers defense didn't do much to slow down opposing quarterbacks in the regular season, so there's no reason to think they suddenly will in the playoffs. This could be one of the highest scoring games of the playoff round, making Prescott an easy top-three option at his position.

Dak Prescott Throws Four Touchdowns In Week 18 Blowout

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw four touchdowns in a Week 18 blowout win over the Washington Commanders. Prescott attempted 36 throws, completing 31 of them for 279 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception. He did not take a sack nor did he record a rushing attempt. It was an excellent game for Prescott after a slightly slow start in the first quarter, and he was even able to take a seat toward the end of the game as backup Cooper Rush wrapped things up for the Cowboys regular season. The Cowboys will host the Green Bay Packers in the first round of the NFL playoffs next weekend.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is one of the top fantasy options in a Week 18 game against the Washington Commanders. Prescott is the overall QB4 in fantasy this season, ranking fourth in passing yards and first in passing touchdowns. The Cowboys need a win to win their division, and the Commanders defense hasn't been stopping much of anything lately. Dak is a top-three option in the regular season's final week.

Dak Prescott A Strong Week 17 Option

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a strong fantasy option in a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions. Prescott has been very consistent, throwing two or more touchdowns in eight of his past nine games and finishing as a top-15 fantasy QB in eight of his past 10. The Lions have been generous to opposing quarterbacks and Prescott is easily in the top-10 at his position this week and should be a QB1 for most league's fantasy championships.

Dak Prescott Tosses Two Touchdowns In Week 16 Loss

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw two touchdowns in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Prescott attempted 32 passes, completing 20 of them for 253 yards and two touchdowns. He didn't throw an interception but he did lose a fumble and took four sacks for a total loss of 11 yards. His two scores went to Brandin Cooks and CeeDee Lamb, but it ended up falling just short, as the Cowboys lost 22-20 on a game-ending field goal by the Dolphins. Dak and the Cowboys will face the Lions on Saturday.

Dak Prescott A Solid Choice Despite A Tough Matchup In Week 16

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is a solid fantasy option in Week 16 lineups despite a difficult matchup against the Miami Dolphins on the road. Prescott has been the overall fantasy QB2 since Week 8, putting up five top-three fantasy performances in that span. He struggled last week though, putting up just seven fantasy points for a QB32 finish. The Dolphins secondary has been excellent of late, but Prescott and the Cowboys passing game have shown the ability to break through other strong defenses in the past. His upside may be capped a bit because of the matchup, but Prescott remains a QB1 option this week.

Dak Prescott Struggles In A Week 15 Loss

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott struggled in a Week 15 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Prescott attempted 34 passes, completing 21 of them for 134 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. Prescott averaged just 3.9 yards per attempt and also took three sacks, losing 28 yards. He did gain 27 yards on four carries, but it was mostly a struggle for the Cowboys quarterback. The Cowboys will face the Dolphins in Week 16 and will hope for better results from their passing game.

Dak Prescott Looks To Rejoin QB1 Ranks In Week 15

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will look to rejoin the fantasy QB1 ranks in a Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills. Prescott had been a top-three fantasy quarterback in six of seven weeks before putting up a QB14 performance in Week 14. A Bills defense that is middle-of-the-pack against opposing quarterbacks certainly won't scare anyone away. Prescott might not end up top-three this week, but he's a safe bet to get back into the top-12 QB1 ranks. He can be started with confidence in most leagues.

Dak Prescott Plays Well Again In Week 14 Win

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott played well once again and led the Cowboys to a Week 14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Prescott attempted 39 passes, completing 24 of them for 271 yards and two touchdowns. He added 11 yards on three carries but lost a fumble and took three sacks. It was another great game for the Cowboys offense, who coasted to an easy 33-13 victory over the Eagles. Prescott should be a QB1 yet again in a Week 15 game against the Buffalo Bills.
