FANTASY FOOTBALL STATUS REPORT: DAK PRESCOTT QB DALLAS COWBOYS

The big news in the world of fantasy football Wednesday was the medical clearance obtained by Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo to possibly return to backup duty for Week 10.  Romo of course has been out since Week 1 with a back fracture and prior to Week 2, it was assumed he would return to starting duty when able as Prescott held down the fort.  Well fast forward to present time as the Cowboys sit an NFC East-leasing 7-1 due to the poise and terrific rookie debut if Prescott and of course the running of back Ezekiel Elliott.  There has been much speculation about what Romo's status would be when he does return; a notion fueled by the fact owner Jerry Jones has yet to weigh in on it.  However with the Cowboys playing as well as they have been, there is no way Prescott can be taken out and that is the easy call to make.  From the start of preseason, Prescott has been incredibly productive and advanced beyond his rookie years.  A monster preseason performance put Prescott on the map but his regular season work has validated that the fourth round pick is a legit top talent.  Going into Week 10, Prescott sits with a 66.5 completion percentage, 12 touchdown passes, and just 2 interceptions for 2,020 yards.  He has been particularly locked in the last few weeks, having tossed 11 of those 12 touchdowns in his last five games.  Throw in the 125 rushing yards and four more scores and Prescott is lighting things up all over the field.  Needless to say, those who took a very late round gamble on him and then saw Prescott go off the way he has.  Also Prescott needs to continue being put out there given his level of performance and that goes for single-passer leagues since he has been so good no matter the format.  There seems to be no signs of any slowdown for Prescott and so he is heading into the stretch of what is shaping up as the best rookie debut under center since Cam Newton.
