News: 5 days agoCoach Mike McCarthy relayed Monday that Prescott's MRI confirmed that the QB has a strained right calf, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Spin: The plan is for Prescott to rest and rehab during Dallas' upcoming bye week and then be evaluated next Monday, per David Helman of the Cowboys' official site. Meanwhile, both Hill and Helman note that the team is optimistic that the signal-caller will be available for Dallas' Oct. 31 road game versus Minnesota.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Following years of drama, Prescott finally signed a long-term extension with Dallas during the offseason. The 28-year-old took his game to another level back in 2019, totaling a career-high 33 TDs while finishing second in fantasy points among QBs. He was well on his way to an even better season in 2020, with 12 scores and sitting second in fantasy points in four games prior to suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5. Prescott returns to arguably the league's best supporting cast, powered by the likes of Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Ezekiel Elliott and a very good offensive line. Prescott is, at worst, a solid weekly starter and has the upside to lead the position in fantasy points.
