Dak Prescott Week 3 Outlook - Cowboys at Seahawks

By Mike Tagliere (FantasyPros), Thu, Sep 24th 2020, 10:20am EDT

Somehow, Prescott has 716 yards passing through two games but just two passing touchdowns. Of the five other quarterbacks who've thrown for 600-plus yards, four of them have at least six passing touchdowns. Fortunately, Prescott has rushed for three touchdowns, propping up his fantasy numbers. Ready for the fun part? Cowboys games have netted 147.0 total plays per game, which is the highest in the NFL. Both them and their opponents are averaging over 70 plays. The Seahawks opponents are averaging 73.5 plays per game. This could get fun. They may be blitzing like crazy or whatever Jamal Adams said, but they've generated just two sacks through two games. They've allowed the third-most fantasy points to quarterbacks, and even better, we know who he targets. The Seahawks have allowed more points to wide receivers than any other team in the league. It surely helps that they've thrown the ball 98 times over two weeks, but that all has to be factored in. We saw signs of this coming last year when they allowed three different quarterbacks to throw for 395-plus yards. On top of all that, the Seahawks just lost starting safety Marquise Blair and linebacker Bruce Irvin for the year with ACL injuries last week. Let the flood gates open. Prescott should have a top-three week.
