There were a lot of factors for that Patriots game, but kudos to him for taking advantage of them. He is willing to give his receivers chances to make plays regularly and they didn't disappoint against an ill Patriots secondary. It'll be another difficult matchup this week against the Broncos, who've allowed just four quarterbacks to throw multiple touchdowns against them, though three of them have come over the last three weeks. First it was Kirk Cousins who had the comeback in Week 11, throwing three touchdowns. Then it was Josh Allen who threw just 25 passes, though two of them were for touchdowns. Finally, it was Philip Rivers who was able to get it together and throw for 265 yards and two touchdowns last week. They were without Von Miller last week, who is clearly their best player on the defensive line. If they're missing him again this week, that would be a big plus for Watson. The Broncos have also allowed just 13.2 fantasy points on the ground to quarterbacks, which isn't ideal, though Watson hasn't used his legs as of late, rushing for 12 yards or less in each of the last three games. The bottom line is that no quarterback has finished better than QB8 against the Broncos this year, as the games have been slow-paced, and the Broncos offense can't go blow-for-blow. Watson should be started, because as he proved last week, he can get it done versus the best of them. Still, he's more of a middling QB1 this week than an elite one.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.

 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.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Broncos are 5th against fantasy quarterbacks, but after a big game at home against the Patriots last week, I trust Watson to outplay the matchup at home again this week.The Bears are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks, Prescott is still a low-end QB1 on the road on TNF.
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.
