- Stephen A.: Jerry Jones is 'not playing' with Trey Lance trade
- Could the Russell Wilson trade affect Dak's future with the Cowboys?
- Pablo Torre: 49ers 'ate a giant sunk cost' by trading Trey Lance
News: 9 hours agoLance (coach's decision) is inactive but designated as the emergency third quarterback for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Spin: Lance also served in the emergency QB capacity in the first two games of the season as he continues to acclimate to the Cowboys' playbook and scheme. If both Dak Prescott and Cooper Rush were to go down with injuries against Arizona, Lance would have an opportunity to make his team/season debut.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Lance was traded to the Cowboys in exchange for a fourth round pick and will battle Cooper Rush for backup duties behind Dak Prescott. The third overall pick of the 2021 draft has been limited to three full games in two seasons. Lance entered 2022 as the 49ers' starter, but went down for the season with an ankle injury in Week 2. He has massive upside as a rusher (174 yards on 37 carries in his three full games) and he's only 23 years old, so the jury remains out on just how good he'll be in the pros. Of course, he'll need a Prescott injury in order to see the field. He's only worth a late flier in dynasty.
