Dak Prescott, Cowboys Have Had Extension Talks

Wednesday, July 10, 1:04 PM

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said that his agent and the Cowboys have had "conversations back and forth," with Prescott saying that "the money and all that will take care of itself." He was also seen in a walking boot recently while on vacation, but Prescott said his surgically repaired ankle is completely fine and there's nothing to worry about. The 30-year-old is coming off a career year and is heading into the final year of his current contract in 2024. The Cowboys cannot trade him and cannot use the franchise tag on him, so Prescott has some real leverage in contract talks this offseason. Prescott could be in line to make around $60 million per year on a new deal, which could be shorter in length if Dallas gets something done with him. Prescott isn't an elite QB1 in fantasy because of his lack of rushing, but he's certainly a decent fallback option as a midrange QB1.

No Front-Runner Yet Between Aidan O'Connell, Gardner Minshew II

Wednesday, June 19, 12:50 AM

Las Vegas Raiders quarterbacks Aidan O'Connell and Gardner Minshew II continue to split reps during offseason programs, but there's no clear favorite for the starting job, according to Tashan Reed of The Athletic. "While they've both taken quickly to offensive coordinator Luke Getsy's system, neither stood out much during practices," Reed wrote. "The defense decidedly had the upper hand regardless of who was at quarterback." Both quarterbacks will have plenty of opportunities to compete over the next couple of months, but for the time being, fantasy managers must continue to grapple with the uncertainty out of Las Vegas as they prepare their rosters for the 2024 season. Whichever signal caller wins the job would be a high-end fantasy QB3 by Week 1.
