Dak Prescott's Fantasy Scouting Report

DAILY FANTASY PROJECTIONS AND PLAY OR FADE ADVICE

He is projected for 28.9 FanDuel points and 31.5 points on DraftKings. Based on the player pool average points per dollar he is worth +$2595 more than $8.4K on FanDuel and +$2508 more than $6.5K on DraftKings. There may be other options (see below) who are even better values, but barring a significant lineup change consider him a strong daily fantasy play. Below are how he ranks based on projected fantasy points on both DFS platforms. Look for players with more FPs at lower salaries.

These projections power SportsLine's Computer Picks and Fantasy Data. But for contest winning DFS optimal lineups by top experts like Mike McClure visit SportsLine's new Daily Fantasy Hub.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Expect Dak Prescott to be a reliable fantasy starter the rest of the season. His 312 projected fantasy points puts him at #6 behind Jared Goff and ahead of Matt Ryan. He has averaged 22.38 fantasy points in his past 18 games. Our projected per game average is virtually the same. His projected per game average is 22.3 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is owned in 100% of fantasy leagues so everyone expects him to be an elite quarterback. He is projected to be very good, but not one of the very best at his position. Dak Prescott is expected to improve on last season's #12 fantasy position rank.

DAK PRESCOTT PROJECTED TO FINISH AHEAD OF TOM BRADY IN WEEK 3

Dak Prescott is projected for 33.6 fantasy points which is good enough to be the #1 ranked quarterback and a must start for most owners. This is projected to be a better than average week with more fantasy points than he is projected to average the rest of the season. He is the highest ranked quarterback for the week, ahead of Tom Brady. Week 4 will not be as good based on projected rank (#9). He is projected for 21.5 fantasy points.
