We talked until we couldn't talk anymore about the regression Mahomes would face in 2019, though many didn't want to believe it. Here's the thing: He's still very good. His 5.4 percent touchdown rate is one that is easily sustainable and one he can even improve on as he continues to grow in his career. Over the last two years, he's produced QB1-type numbers in 21-of-29 games where he's played the entire game (had to leave early against the Broncos in Week 7 last year). That's a ridiculous 72.4 percent rate. To give an idea as to how crazy that is, the highest career rate outside of him since 2000 is 63.2 percent. If you want to take him as the No. 1 quarterback off the board, no one would fault you. He's worthy of a late third-round pick.He might have the best starting trio in the NFL after the Cowboys snagged CeeDee Lamb at No. 17 overall. We all knew they needed a third wide receiver to play in three-wide sets, but no one thought Lamb would fall to them. The Cowboys are going to find a way to lock him into a long-term contract, and it'd be wise to do it before he explodes statistically. Prescott is the best fantasy quarterback not named Lamar Jackson or Patrick Mahomes.
Brandon Funston
The Athletic
With sky-high confidence, perfect seasoning and explosive weapons galore, a healthy Mahomes is set for another epic season - I'll take the over on 40 TD passes, 5k pass yardsNo. 2 QB in FAN PTS in 2019 gets richer with rookie WR CD Lamb - M. McCarthy offenses have ranked in NFL's top half in pass attempts 10 of 13 seasons as head coach
Michael Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
He is the best player in football and started using his legs a bit more on his super bowl run. If you are going to take a QB early, this is your guy.Coop, Gallup, Lamb and Zeke. Ridiculous supporting cast and his ADP finally matches his production.
Jason Petropoulos
BRoto Fantasy
 Dak had less rushing yards than Murray, Wilson, and Allen last season - all QBs that are being drafted around him - yet still had the most fantasy points of the bunch. With the added weapon of Ceedee Lamb around him and HC Mike McCarthy bringing over an offense that utilizes 3-WR sets very often, Dak is lined up for another successful fantasy season. His ceiling may not be as high as those around him, but he certainly has the highest floor.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Mahomes is only entering his third season and the sky is the limit for the 24-year old signal caller. He signed the biggest contract in NFL history and he is poised to dominate the league for at least the next decade.Prescott had 4,902 yards passing and 30 passing touchdowns in 2019 and he will be motivated to show that the Cowboys made a mistake by not giving him a long-term deal.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Draft Mahomes as either the first or second QB off the board. It's that simple.Dak finished as the QB2 last year for fantasy and the Cowboys just added CeeDee Lamb to this offense. Dak's a solid candidate to finish within the top-5 again in 2020.
Seth Miller
Crossroads Fantasy Football
 So the Cowboys ranked 28th in dropped passes on offense and Dak still threw for 4900 and 30 while getting younger and more athletic at WR and TE over the offseason? 1 Dak please
Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Coming off a historic 2018 season, expectations couldn't have been higher for Mahomes heading into 2019. Unfortunately, a mid-season knee injury ruined his chances of repeating as MVP but assuming he plays 16 games this year, he may end up as league MVP. His offense is arguably the best in the league and Mahomes is only going to get better.Prescott is coming off a career year where he finished 2nd overall at QB. His team added Mike McCarthy, a pass-heavy coach as well as in many people's opinions the best WR in the class, CeeDee Lamb. With Zeke, Cooper, Gallup, Lamb, and McCarthy calling plays, Dak could be an MVP contender.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
Despite a horror 2019 for fantasy, where he battled injury, a brutal schedule of passing defences, Tyreek Hill's injury, an awful running game and touchdown regression, Mahomes finished as a QB1 in all but two full-game fantasy weeks. He averaged 20 points a game and hit the top 5 on six occasions but no doubt he was slowed down by knee and hand injuries so his healthy floor is even higher than that. For me, he remains the locked in dynasty and redraft QB1. Take him as early as the 3rd round.Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb. The Cowboys' fabulous four makes it really hard to dislike Dak in fantasy. He has massive upside with these elite receivers, but will ultimately be held back by a reworked O-line, questionable play-calling and the fact he's Dak Prescott. Dak is a talented player in the grand scheme of things but he just doesn't have the special talent of the truly great QBs and that, when combined with his questionable contract status, makes him a risky buy. Having said that, he's still young, was excellent last season, has a great injury record and has strong job security. Here's a random stat of warning to finish with: average points at home in 2019: 25.5, average points on the road in 2019: 19.7. He's tough to use every week so you may need a second QB, which isn't ideal for a guy you drafted so high.
Steven Pintado
The Fantasy Coaches
Mahomes had a down year in terms of fantasy. I expect this offense to bounce back in 2020. espically if they can get a third down back.
