Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys

DraftKings Price: $5,200

Projected Points: 19.24

Projected Value (points per $1,000): 3.7

Dak Prescott has been a pedestrian fantasy option for most of the season, but he has turned it around in his last three games. His yards per attempt over the past three games is 1.1 yards better than what he put up across his first six games. Mayne not coincidentally, Amari Cooper was added to the lineup during that time.

Baker Mayfield was a recommendation in last week’s bargain bin because of a date with the Atlanta Falcons, and Mayfield performed well, posting 22.64 DraftKings points. Quarterbacks against the Falcons' defense are completing 70.6% of their passes for 305.7 yards per game while averaging 2.3 touchdown passes and 0.8 interceptions. With Prescott’s increased efficiency over the course of these three weeks, he looks like a palatable option in Week 11.

Dak is also running the ball 5.3 per game, ranking fifth in quarterback rush attempts. He isn't the most prolific runner, but it’s hard to neglect those rushing attempts, especially if they are coming within the red zone, where he’s had 33% of the team's rush attempts in said three-game span. Fortunately, the Falcons have allowed the fourth-most rushing yards to quarterbacks this year, elevating his normal low-yardage floor for the week.

Prescott currently grades out as a top-12 quarterback for the week -- not exclusive to the main slate -- based on the our models.
