Andrew Erickson
FantasyPros
With their backs up against the salary cap, the Dallas Cowboys didn't have an offseason to remember for anybody heavily invested in Dak Prescott's 2022 fantasy prospects. They gave up Amari Cooper and lost two key starting offensive pieces on the offensive line with La'el Collins and Connor Williams for little return. They did re-sign Dalton Schultz and Michael Gallup, but early reports on Gallup indicate it will be close whether he's ready for Week 1 coming off the torn ACL. Dallas' biggest move in free agency and the NFL Draft to combat their losses was signing former Steelers wide receiver James Washington, drafting Jalen Tolbert in Round 3 and selecting offensive tackle project Tyler Smith in Round 1. With many other quarterbacks benefitting from better team off seasons, Prescott has fallen in my rankings well past his QB9 ADP making it less likely I draft him. He finished as the QB9 last year in points per game, and I'd argue his situation - aside from health - isn't as ideal as it was a season ago. His rushing also hit career-low numbers in 2021.Weapons are the name of the game with Stafford, who finished the season 11th in fantasy points per game (20.4) on the back of 41 passing touchdowns. Forty-plus TDs is no easy feat and should not be overlooked by fantasy drafters in 2022, especially because it was Stafford's first season in Sean McVay's offense.

Dak bounced back from an ankle injury that ended his 2020 season by throwing for 4,154 yards and 32 touchdowns in the 2021 fantasy season. His rushing production took a slight dip with just 146 yards rushing and 1 rushing TD and they traded away Amari Cooper in the offseason. He's on the borderline between QB1 and QB2.Stafford had an incredible first fantasy season in Los Angeles finishing the fantasy season with 4,648 yards and 38 passing touchdowns. He should be a great QB1 option in 2022 coming off a season where he won his first Super Bowl.
Derek Brown
FantasyPros
Dak Prescott rebounded nicely from a lost 2020 season (due to injury) as the QB9 in weekly fantasy scoring. Prescott's former rushing floor evaporated as he finished with the lowest rushing yardage total (146) for a full season of his career. Despite losing Amari Cooper this offseason, the Cowboy's passing attack should be fine as the team retained Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz and added Jalen Tolbert and James Washington. Dallas led the NFL in neutral pace last season. With heightened play volume helping his passing numbers, Prescott should have no issues compensating for the lost rushing production as a locked-in top ten fantasy quarterback.Matthew Stafford is thoroughly enjoying his new marriage with Sean McVay. His first year in a Rams jersey led to a career-high completion rate (67.2%) and tying his career-high in passing touchdowns (41) en route to a Super Bowl title. Stafford was the QB11 in fantasy points per game after ranking inside the top ten in deep ball attempts, deep ball completion percentage, and pressured completion rate. Stafford should be considered a rock-solid back-end QB1.

Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
Dak will be entering his age-29 season, putting him squarely in the prime of his career. He struggled at times during the second half of last season but finished with 12 TD passes and 0 INTs in his final three-regular season games. His supporting cast should be strong again, though Cowboys figure to lose WR Michael Gallup and perhaps TE Dalton Schultz in free agency. One troubling development for Dak's fantasy value: The Dallas defense has become one of the best in the league, which means fewer shootout game scripts.First year in Los Angeles resulted in a QB5 fantasy finish, his best since 2013. Stafford's ecosystem should remain strong: He has wunderkind Sean McVay calling plays for him, he has a superstar WR in Cooper Kupp, and he now gets Allen Robinson as a QB2. The upside is limited for a non-running QB, but Stafford's floor is sturdy.
