Dallas @ Seattle
Team Totals: Seahawks 30, Cowboys 25.5
Galvanized by last week’s 40-39 comeback win over Atlanta, the Cowboys visit CenturyLink Field with Dak Prescott coming off one of the best performances of his career. Overcoming a cluster of offensive line losses and a 20-0 first-quarter deficit, Prescott produced Week 2’s overall QB1 score powered by three rushing touchdowns and 450 passing yards, the second most of Dak’s career. Despite Dallas’ up-front injuries, Prescott has absorbed just two sacks and 12 hits on 96 dropbacks two games in. Already short on pass-rush talent – Seattle has three sacks in two games despite facing 101 combined dropbacks from Matt Ryan and Cam Newton – the Seahawks lost EDGE Bruce Irvin (ACL) for the season in Week 2. After the Seahawks surrendered Week 1’s QB7 outcome to Ryan and Week 2’s QB2 result to Newton, Dak is primed for another monster game. … Even after Week 3 opponent Seattle defended the run stoutly in its initial two games, Ezekiel Elliott is a no-fear elite RB1 play as arguably the most valuable player in all of fantasy following Christian McCaffrey (high ankle sprain) and Saquon Barkley’s (ACL) injuries. Zeke is on pace for 88 targets, 72 catches, 424 touches, and a career-high 91% playing-time rate. Elliott will be involved in projected shootouts all year, raising his weekly touchdown probability.
