This is a win/loss format column with the goal of 250 yards passing + rushing and two touchdowns. Every time a quarterback selected finishes the NFL fantasy week in the top twelve or accumulates 250 yards passing/rushing and two touchdowns, it will be graded as a win. Anything short of that, you guessed it-a loss.
Using ESPN standard scoring / PPR leagues, the quarterback of the week must be 30% or less owned.
Week Seven Game Of Throws Selection
Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys ($5,200)
Is it gross? Yes. Did I blindly bet Dak Prescott under passing yards for the first six weeks of the season and only lose once? You bet’cha. But, things tend to regress towards the mean, and here we are with a matchup that is simply too good to ignore. Dak Prescott has quietly turned his season around (stats-wise, he still shouldn’t be a starting NFL quarterback) and as we take a look at his last three games:
Mind you all of these games are against defenses much better than the high-school MASH unit currently employed by the Atlanta Falcons, but he’s still been able to put up over 20 fantasy points in three out of the last four games including against Jacksonville, Tennessee, and two divisional matchups.
Atlanta has been gold mine to fade and I want as many pieces as I can. Yes, I have a concern they rush the ball thirty times and Zeke Elliot has a career high in rush yards, but they’re should be plenty to go around. Close your eyes and click submit.
