Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Target – Number 4: Dak Prescott
Weapons, weapons, WEAPONS! Weapons are something that Dak Prescott definitely is not lacking coming into the 2020 NFL season. He has two 1000-yard receivers returning and then Cowboys went and added arguably the best wide receiver in the draft on top of that. In addition, he also has Ezekiel Elliott at his disposal who looked much improved in the passing game last season.
To be frank, if Prescott doesn’t finish as a top five fantasy quarterback, it would be a huge disappointment. Amari Cooper already stated that he expects three 1000-yard receivers this season so the pressure is on for Dak and it would be very hard to see him outside of the top five if Cooper’s goal is met.
Not to mention, they say that the contract year is undefeated, right? He should come out ready to play trying to earn his long-term payday from the Cowboys. Lastly, he can get some yards with his legs when needed like many of the other top options so that raises his floor even more.
Weapons, contract year motivation, and quarterback mobility is a good recipe for fantasy success.
Fantasy Football Quarterbacks to Target – Number 3: Kyler Murray
Kyler Murray has the best shot of any fantasy quarterback to be a first time QB1 this season. Like Jackson last season, Murray has a solid floor due to his ability to rack up yardage with his legs. He won’t get quite the level of rushing stats that Jackson will, but he is a better pure passer.
Murray had a solid season last year finishing as QB7 as a rookie and now comes into this season more experienced, with a better offensive line, and a big time new target that could be argued as the best wide receiver in the league. A lot of factors there that point towards a fantasy jump for Murray this year.
Look for an all around improvement for him both on the ground and through the air. The improved offensive line will give him more time to make decisions and help with his ability to get yards with his feet.
His shiny new target, DeAndre Hopkins, and the experience he will bring in from last season should allow him to make sizable improvements in the passing game as well. Murray is a guy that could definitely outplay his draft position this season.
