FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT WRAPUP: COWBOYS/VIKINGS

-It took 13 weeks but Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott finally showed he was a rookie when he completed just 12-of-18 passes for 139 yards with 1 TD and 1 lost fumble against the ferocious Minnesota Vikings defense.  Prescott is on a long list of QB's who have struggled against that unit so this does nothing to alter the spectacular narrative he has produced this season.  Throw him back out there Week 14. 

-Even when the numbers don't jump off the page, Ezekiel Elliott makes it a productive day as he rushed for 86 yards and a score on 20 carries, while also catching 4 passes for another 19.  Elliott has now cleared 100 total yards in 9 of 12 games as he leads the league in rushing and earned plaudits.  He is one of those monster weapons that are the envy of many going into the playoff weeks.

-For the first time since 2008, Jason Witten did not catch a pass for the Dallas Cowboys.  That is a spectacular statistic but it just goes to show you what a Hall of Fame career the guy has had.  It also shows you how age and the fact Witten seems to be written out of the passing offense have now made him just another guy. 

-Dez Bryant did his touchdown thing as he caught 4 passes for 84 yards and a touchdown.  Just like with Rob Gronkowski when he is healthy, there may not be a guy who is more dependable in terms of getting into the end zone.  The numbers don't jump off the page this season like in years past but Bryant is still getting it done as a whole.

-Stefon Diggs caught 8 passes for 59 yards of the dink-and-dunk variety.  After being very questionable coming into the game due to a knee injury, Diggs had a decent PPR return to active duty.  After a big start to 2016 however, he has dropped back to being a firm WR 3. 

-Sam Bradford is garbage and he showed it in a comically bad performance last night when he completed 32-of-45 passes for 247 yards with 1 TD.  His 2-point conversion misthrow at the end of the game was a joke and the career of Bradford is as well as he simply can't be a viable starter from week-to-week.  Story of his career.
