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.Brees at home has made for a safe fantasy start throughout his career
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.The issue when the Saints defense plays well is that it'll limit Brees' pass attempts. We saw that happen in Week 13 when he threw just 30 attempts. It's odd to see that the two games he's posted less than 20.8 fantasy points this year came each time he played the Falcons. The matchup with the 49ers is going to be a tough one. They've been continually getting to the opposing quarterback, generating a sack on 11.3 percent of dropbacks. This is an issue because Brees was without both left tackle Terron Armstead (ankle) and left guard Andrus Peat (forearm) against the Falcons last week. That's his blind side, so monitoring their health would be wise. Even if they're healthy, the 49ers have allowed a league-low 161.6 passing yards per game. That's not a misprint. There's been just one quarterback to throw for more than 242 yards against them, and that was way back in Week 2. They've allowed just 12 passing touchdowns through their 12 games, with no quarterback tossing more than two against them. The only quarterbacks who've finished inside the top-10 against them have been Lamar Jackson, Kyler Murray (twice), and Andy Dalton. Jackson and Murray are obviously much different players and do a lot of scoring on the ground, while Dalton's QB10 finish was back in Week 2. We all know Brees offers nothing on the ground, and actually has Taysom Hill stealing some production at quarterback. It's hard to bet against Brees at home but the 49ers drop him into the high-end QB2 territory.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Bears are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks, Prescott is still a low-end QB1 on the road on TNF.The 49ers are 3rd against fantasy quarterbacks, but Brees is a player that can have a big game against anyone at home. I think he is a QB2 this week, but he does have some upside at home.
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.The 49ers have allowed an average of 169.4 passing yards over their past five games. This is a solid defense and Brees is not a high volume passer, or a QB that pushes the ball down the field, anymore. He is firmly in the QB2 range for this week's matchup.
