Ben DiNucci throws for 46 yards and a score in preseason game

Cowboys QB Ben DiNucci completed 6-of-14 passes for 46 yards while also tallying a touchdown in the team's preseason defeat to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

DiNucci also flashed his running ability, notching ten yards on the ground on a single carry. It wasn't an amazing showing for the second-year player, but he remains the likely backup should Dak Prescott get hurt again this season.

Ben DiNucci struggles in first preseason game

Dallas Cowboys QB Ben DiNucci struggled during Thursday's loss as he went 7-for-17 for 89 yards and one interception during a loss to the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

The Cowboys backup QB from 2020 struggled mightily recording just seven completions on 17 attempts for 89 yards. The veteran also threw and interception. The Cowboys QB competition will continue to evaluate as the summer goes on so it is a situation to monitor moving forward for fantasy purposes as Dak Prescott's injury history lingers.

Ben DiNucci (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Week 9

QB Ben DiNucci (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday’s Week 9 contest against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

DiNucci went from Cowboys' starter in Week 8 to inactive Week 9. He completed 21 of 40 passes for 180 yards with zero touchdowns and two interceptions in last Sunday's loss to the Eagles. The Cowboys will roll with Garrett Gilbert against the Steelers. Cooper Rush was called up from the practice squad and will back up Gilbert. DiNucci should not be rostered in any type of league format.

Ben DiNucci could be benched for Cooper Rush in Week 9

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cowboys are considering starting Cooper Rush over Ben DiNucci in Week 9 against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

DiNucci started at quarterback in Week 8 against the Eagles and predictably flopped. The Cowboys might now turn to practice squad QB Cooper Rush. Any Dalton was recently placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which rules him out for the game against Pittsburgh.

Ben DiNucci struggles in NFL debut

Cowboys quarterback Ben DiNucci completed 21 of his 40 pass attempts for 180 yards and rushed for 22 yards on five carries. He also lost two fumbles.

Fantasy Impact

Thrust into action due to injuries to both Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton, DiNucci did not look like he was ready to start an NFL game. The Cowboys seemed to be aware of this, as well, as they came out with a creative gameplan that attempted to limit the young quarterback's responsibilities. They incorporated short pass attempts, end around runs, zone read concepts, and wildcat formations into the offense on Sunday night, but they found little success. DiNucci was inaccurate when attempting to pass the ball downfield, and he lost two fumbles because he didn't feel pressure coming while in the pocket. Dalton should return to the lineup in Week 9 against the Steelers.
