Who is Dak Prescott

During Dak Prescott’s rookie season, injuries took their toll on Dallas’ quarterback room during training camp and throughout the preseason. The most notable injury came to Romo, who suffered a vertebral compression fracture that was expected to keep him out for an extended period of time. Prescott was named the Cowboys’ starter, and the rest as they say, was history. Since entering the league in 2016, Prescott has appeared in 85 games while starting all 85 of them. Over time he has proven to be one of the best quarterbacks in the league, compiling a regular season record of 53-32 while throwing for over 22,000 yards and 143 touchdowns to 50 interceptions.

During the 2021 season, Prescott returned to the Cowboys after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5 of the 2020 season against the Giants. With his return to the Cowboys came Prescott’s best season yet, as he totaled 4,449 passing yards, 37 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while leading Dallas to an 11-5 record. Dallas’ 11-win season would be their most wins since Prescott’s rookie year when the team went 13-3. In what was a career-year for Prescott, the sixth year veteran played like one of the best quarterbacks in the league. While ranking seventh in the league in passing yards and air yards (4,820), Prescott also proved to be one of the most accurate passers in the league. His true completion percentage of 74.0% ranked as the QB4 overall, while his 54.9 QBR was good for ninth best. He finished the year with 76 deep balls and a 42.1% deep ball completion percentage, while his receivers posted the fifth most drops in the league (34).

Prescott ranked in the top-10 in several next gen stats on Player Profiler, including adjusted yards per attempt (7.8), best ball points added (78.0), under pressure completion percentage (51.6%) and red zone completion percentage (63.7%). With the weapons at his disposal, it’s no wonder Prescott was able to return from a devastating injury to post the best season of his career. The former fourth round draft pick has finished with a top-12 fantasy ranking in points per game in five of his six seasons, and averaged a ridiculous 27.1 fantasy points per game in his injury shortened 2020 season.

Set to turn 29 in July, Prescott has plenty of years of good football left in him. With a tremendous supporting cast and an offensive line that ranked seventh in protection rate in 2021, Prescott should continue to be a value in drafts as a quarterback whose ADP may put him out of the top-5 at the position.
