Every year, FanSided puts out their NFL quarterback rankings to see where every starting player ranks when compared to everyone else in their positional group. Thankfully for the Dallas Cowboys, this year’s FanSided NFL quarterback rankings have Dak Prescott ranked in the top ten.

It’s great to see Prescott rightfully land where he did because his recovery from that devasting season-ending ankle injury will not be an easy thing to come back from. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott has handled everything in stride this offseason in his recovery and will be a full go for their Week 1 season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Prescott is ready to once again lead the Cowboys back to glory and despite having some shoulder issues throughout training camp and preseason action, is ready for the task at hand. Speaking about such a task, it won’t be easy to beat the defending Super Bowl champions, but Prescott under center undoubtedly puts them in a better position to win and win often in 2021.

Dak Prescott lands at No. 6 in FanSided NFL Quarterback Rankings

Even as the rest of the regular season unfolds, as long as Prescott is healthy and returns to form in his year of redemption, he’s easily one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Even in the FanSided NFL quarterback rankings, it’s evident that with Prescott running the Cowboys’ offense, they will truly be a force to reckon with.

In an article written by Matt Verderame of, Prescott made the top ten of NFL quarterbacks at No. 6. Here’s what Verderame had to say about Prescott making it so high:

"Prescott appeared on his way to a career year in 2020 before grotesquely breaking his ankle against the New York Giants. Provided he stays healthy, the Cowboys should have one of the league’s best offenses with CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper on the outside. Prescott is a prime candidate to win the passing title."

In the grand scheme of things, Verderame hit the nail right on the head. On paper, the Cowboys’ offense is stacked with talent that can truly be amazing in 2021. The wide receiving corps has the speed, versatility, and experience to make a name for themselves and then some. If Prescott picks up where he left off from before his unfortunate injury, the sky is the limit for the Cowboys.

The NFC East will more than likely be another tight race as the division can be up for grabs by any of these teams. It will all come down to quarterback play and how each team’s offense is able to adjust, execute, do their best to maintain consistency in the new season head.

Hot. Predicting the Dallas Cowboys season game by game. light

The Cowboys are not only ready to make some serious noise but Prescott, if healthy and able to do what he does best, will be a huge catalyst for America’s Team. If he’s able to click on all cylinders, 2021 will undoubtedly be a season worth remembering once it’s in the books.
