Mike McCarthy Puts Faith In Dak Prescott

Thursday, January 18, 12:08 PM

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.

Anthony Richardson Begins Throwing Again

Tuesday, February 13, 4:25 PM

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Anthony Richardson (shoulder) is throwing again after suffering a Grade 3 AC joint sprain in October that required surgery. The No. 4 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft flashed fantasy upside early in his career, averaging 23.1 fantasy points per game through his first three starts. However, he suffered a concussion and a major shoulder injury before making it to Week 6. The 6'4" signal-caller has elite physical traits, but he'll have to find a way to stay healthy to live up to his potential. With Richardson already throwing in February, he's likely to be one of the first 10 quarterbacks off the board in 2024 fantasy drafts due to his rushing upside.
