Cooper Rush leads Cowboys to win over Vikings on SNF

Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush completed 24 of his 40 pass attempts for 325 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in Sunday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. He also lost a fumble.

Fantasy Impact

Starting in place of the injured Dak Prescott, Rush threw the ball 40 times on Sunday in a dramatic victory that saw him lead a late game-winning touchdown drive. Prescott is likely to return in Week 9 against the Broncos, and Rush would not be the best streaming option in standard leagues against a tough Denver defense even if he does start.

Cooper Rush could be Cowboys' starting QB in Week 9 vs Steelers

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Cowboys are considering starting Cooper Rush at quarterback for their Week 9 matchup against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact

Andy Dalton was recently placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which rules him out for Sunday's game. Ben DiNucci started in Week 8 and predictably flopped, so Dallas might make another switch. Starting Rush would mean that Dallas has to activate him from the practice squad.

Cooper Rush claimed off waivers by the Giants

The New York Giants have claimed QB Cooper Rush off waivers after he was released by the Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Rush was a part of the Cowboys organization for three years prior to being waived last week when Dallas signed Andy Dalton to a one-year deal. The former Central Michigan quarterback will look to compete for the backup or third-string role behind Daniel Jones in New York.

Cooper Rush doesn't play in preseason finale

Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush did not play in the team's preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

If there was ever any doubt that Rush is the backup in Dallas, it was put to bed with the team resting him in Thursday's preseason finale.

Cooper Rush throws for 173 yards Saturday

Cowboys backup quarterback Cooper Rush completed 15 of 25 passes for 173 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions in Saturday's preseason game against the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Rush has had an excellent preseason for Dallas and appears to be locked into the top backup role to starter Dak Prescott.
