2017 FANTASY FOOTBALL CRISIS POINT: DAK PRESCOTT QB DALLAS COWBOYS

So maybe THAT is why Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott was a fourth-round pick?  By the time you finished reading the previous sentence, Prescott might have thrown another interceptions versus the Philadelphia Eagles.  Simply put, Prescott was beyond brutal Sunday night as he completed just 18-of-31 passes for 145 yards with zero touchdowns and three interceptions in the team's 37-9 whitewash against the Eagles and the start was the second in a row where the guy performed horribly.  Of course in both of those starts Prescott was without both All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith (injured) and All-Pro running back Ezekiel Elliott (suspended) which surely contributed to the carnage.  However the fact of the matter is that Prescott has not shown himself to be an even adequate passer without a big running game at his disposal as it is no coincidence his worst two games of a pro came the last two weeks without Elliott.  While backup Alfred Morris is a solid player, he does not possess the home-run ability of Elliott and so opposing defenses can play him in a manner much looser than before.  Add in the offensive line woes and Prescott is now looking like a clear bench option in single-passer leagues as the playoff weeks move closer.  The timing is terrible of course given the fact Prescott's owners were happy and riding him in September and October but what has gone on the last two week is beyond nasty.
