Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Dak had one terrible performance and it was in the rain against the Patriots which should have been no surprise. He didn't play as well last week but he still racked up fantasy points because of volume and you can expect the same this week in another tough matchup against the Bears.It might not always be pretty, but outside of the game against the Patriots, where every non L-Jax quarterback has struggled, Allen has been a reliable fantasy option week in and week out. His low is just 17 fantasy points and even in tough matchups the past two weeks against Denver and Dallas, he has managed 20 and 24 fantasy points. Although he gets the Ravens this week, he'll be at home and you can bank on him running for 40+ yards which is the same in fantasy as a free passing touchdown.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He just tied the highest fantasy output in the last two years against the Bills, though the results of the game weren't exactly what the Cowboys were hoping. He's going to have another tough time posting elite fantasy numbers against the Bears, who may have taken the competition lightly last week. It seems to be a trend with them. Here are the four quarterbacks who've thrown more than one touchdown against them: Teddy Bridgewater, Case Keenum, Daniel Jones, and David Blough. Some of the quarterbacks who threw 0-1 touchdowns included: Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins, Derek Carr, Philip Rivers, and Jared Goff. Oddly enough, Goff was the only one who was able to top 7.72 yards per attempt against them, while Keenum was the only quarterback to throw for 300 yards. That's saying something considering quarterbacks have averaged a healthy 36.3 pass attempts per game. This game will be outside the Cowboys typical elements, as the temps will be around freezing. Prescott has played in six games that were 40 degrees or below, and in those games, he's thrown 10 touchdowns and four interceptions with a QB Rating right around 90, so it hasn't been much of a problem for him. The biggest question for Prescott is the gameplan, as the Cowboys simply abandoned the run way too fast last week and lost as a result of it. Knowing the Bears have yet to allow a quarterback a 20-point performance, Prescott should be considered a low-end QB1 this week, though his performance last week did earn him some trust.After posting 23.5 fantasy points against the Cowboys, Allen has now scored 17.2 or more fantasy points on 10 different occasions this year. The only other quarterbacks who can say they've done it more than eight times are Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott. He's on fire but will face his toughest test of the season when the Ravens come to town. They've been potentially the toughest matchup in football for quarterbacks since Week 4. Over their last eight games, they've allowed just five passing touchdowns while intercepting seven passes. They've also held quarterbacks in check on the ground, as none have rushed for more than 27 yards all season. The 17.4 fantasy points they've allowed on the ground to quarterbacks ranks in the bottom-five, and Allen doesn't get very many designed runs, so this could be problematic. We haven't seen a quarterback finish better than the QB13 against them since back in Week 3 and that was against Patrick Mahomes, who kind of does that to everyone. Even the mobile Russell Wilson was held to just 241 passing yards, 27 rushing yards, and one touchdown against them. Allen should still present a semi-decent floor with his legs, but he's nothing more than a middling QB2 for this matchup with a very limited ceiling.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks, Prescott is still a low-end QB1 on the road on TNF.Allen does go against the 4th ranked Ravens fantasy QB D, but he has also been on a tear in recent weeks. He is a low-end QB1 to high-end QB2 at home in a tough matchup.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
While it's a Thursday game, we can take the short week narrative out of the conversation, since both of these teams played on Thanksgiving. The Bears have surrendered the fifth-fewest fantasy points to QBs over their past five games, but they have been shown to surrender rushing yards to teams with solid blockers up front. Obviously, the Cowboys fit the bill. Look for Dallas to take a run-heavy approach in Chicago, limiting the upside of Dak. He is a low end QB1 still, with how well he has performed for fantasy purposes. However, he doesn't have the 30-point upside this week.
