Dak Prescott Hasn't Started Contract Negotiations With Cowboys

Friday, April 19, 8:13 PM

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.

Justin Herbert Out For The Season

Tuesday, December 12, 12:12 PM

Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert (finger) will miss the final four regular season games after having surgery to fix the broken index finger on his right hand on Tuesday. Backup Easton Stick will now run LA's offense for the rest of the year, which will be a major downgrade for the rest of the Chargers' offensive skill players in fantasy leagues, mainly receiver Keenan Allen and running back Austin Ekeler. The Chargers are doing what is best for Herbert in the long term with the team sitting at 5-8 and out of the AFC playoff picture. Fantasy managers can safely drop Herbert now in single-year formats and look for a replacement if you don't already have one on roster. Through 14 weeks, Herbert finished as a top-10 fantasy QB with 3,133 passing yards on 456 attempts for 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. He's likely going to be working with a new head coach in 2024.
