Dak Prescott's Recent Success Following a Loss

There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it: the Bills utterly dismantled the Cowboys in Week 15, handing Dallas their first loss in five weeks and Dak Prescott his first single-digit fantasy performance since Week 5. After seven straight games of two or more passing touchdowns for Dak, he was held to zero on the afternoon in Buffalo and threw his first interception since Week 10. Dak finished as the QB32 on the week, which was his lowest finish all year. But based on what we’ve seen from him in recent years, we shouldn’t have to worry about a second straight dud in Week 16 against the Dolphins…

Since 2022, Dak Prescott is averaging a whopping 25.5 fantasy points per game in five regular season games coming off a regular season loss. Of those five games, Prescott has finished as the overall QB1 on the Week in three of them, including two such finishes this season - the first coming against the Chargers after the loss to the 49ers, and the second against the Giants coming off the loss to the Eagles.

In those games, Prescott is averaging 312 passing yards and over two touchdowns per game. The numbers above don’t reflect the weeks following Prescott’s loss in Week 1 of 2022 where he exited the game early and missed the next five weeks, or the final game of the year in 2022 against the Commanders. However, Prescott would go on after the loss at the end of the regular season to the Commanders to score five total touchdowns the next week against the Buccaneers in the wild card round of the playoffs - one week after the loss to Washington.
