Spin: Prescott's only blemish in the box score was a lost fumble off of a strip sack that resulted in the Eagles' lone touchdown on Sunday Night Football. The Cowboys had built enough of a lead that his turnover didn't threaten the final lopsided result. The 30-year-old otherwise cruised against a defense that usually gives opposing quarterbacks fits, uncharacteristically taking the top off Philadelphia's coverage on several deep completions. Prescott has been rolling since returning from Dallas' Week 7 bye, averaging 310.3 passing yards with multiple touchdowns thrown in all seven starts during that span. The red-hot quarterback met little resistance against the first opponent of a brutal four-week schedule, with a road matchup against the Bills representing the second challenge next Sunday.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Prescott is looking to bounce back after a rough 2022 campaign in which he missed five games due to injury, paced the NFL with 15 INTs and struggled to generate fantasy points. Prescott managed only two weekly finishes better than eighth and finished 15th or worse in six of his 12 outings. The Dallas offense will have a new playcaller in Mike McCarthy, but the head coach has expressed a desire to slow down the offense and run more. That doesn't bode well for Prescott's upside, especially since the 30-year-old no longer offers much with his legs (48-146-1 and 45-182-1 rushing lines the last two seasons). Prescott does, however, have an excellent supporting cast (led by CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, Tony Pollard and an elite line), so he still has the look of a fringe QB1.
