Dak Prescott finds himself back in the top 50 (46) after being left off the list entirely the previous two years.
Prescott had a career year on paper, even if it didn’t translate to more wins for the Cowboys. After not agreeing to an extension, 2020 sets up to be another prove-it year.
Prescott has done nothing short of overachieve since the Dallas Cowboys selected him in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft.
He was forced into action his rookie season after starting quarterback Tony Romo went down with a back injury in preseason play just a few months later.
Prescott took over and never looked back as he went on a record-setting rookie season. Dak took over as the starter and cemented himself as a star player in the NFL.
Dallas and Prescott failed to come to terms on a long-term agreement before the contract deadline even after Prescott passed for nearly 5,000 yards on the season – he also added 30 touchdowns to his resume as well.
Though this year will force him to play yet again without long-term security, he is surrounded by arguably the most talented receiving core he’s been given in his young career. Returning are 1,000 yard receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. Not to mention first-round selection CeeDee Lamb.
Regardless of the team’s long term plans with Prescott, they have aligned a plethora of talent around the quarterback to see him succeed this year.
