Every year we give our premium content members a team-by-team, player-by-player look at the NFL season that was. The coverage will be in-depth, but because the Dynasty Capsule series begins immediately after the season, we won’t use it to discuss free agency or the draft. Come see us in early May once Mr. Irrelevant is off the board for another 32-article series giving you the same detailed discussion you’ll see below.
Buckle up dynasty fans, because you’re about to be reminded why our motto is, “There is no off-season.”
Prescott finished his 2017 campaign with 3,307 passing yards and 22 touchdowns along with 13 interceptions. He also rushed for 357 yards and six touchdowns. Prescott only had one game with more than 300 yards through the air but had eight games with multiple touchdown passes.
His overall production took a dip during Ezekiel Elliott’s six-game suspension. During that time, Prescott passed for just 1,146 yards and five touchdowns but had seven interceptions. One of the main reasons why the Cowboy offense took a nosedive during Elliott’s suspension was because the team’s star left tackle, Tyron Smith, was dealing with an injury that caused him to miss a few games and play hurt during a large portion of the season. The constant shuffle of the offensive line during the back half of the season caused the entire offense to tailspin.
Prescott currently has a 76.75 ADP, making him the sixth quarterback off the board in most rookie drafts behind Carson Wentz, Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Deshaun Watson and Andrew Luck. The DLF staff has him ranked seventh amongst quarterbacks and at 88.86 overall. With all that being said, Prescott’s dynasty value is still holding strong. His rushing production elevates his floor, making him a very safe asset to invest in.
He will start the 2018 season at 25 years of age and should be the Cowboys’ quarterback for a very long time. Even when Dallas is forced to take a step back and do a complete rebuild of the entire roster, Prescott will still be fantasy relevant due to his rushing production. He’s a solid get in dynasty.
