As a new season approaches, new and ongoing expectations arise and predictions are made. The goal of the Dallas Cowboys as an organization is to win the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl. 

However, fans and football experts always like to make predictions and assumptions as to how players will perform individually. Will this player throw for X amount of yards or rush for X amount of touchdowns? The best way to figure that out is to evaluate the player's situation. 

This piece will focus on Fact or Fiction as it pertains to the Cowboys’ offense and the potential outcomes. 

Fact or Fiction: Dak Prescott passes for 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns 

The 2022 season is one Prescott would likely rather put behind him. Even after missing five games, Prescott still led the league with 15 interceptions. 

The now-eight-year veteran has topped 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns twice in his career. Those two seasons are 2019 and 2021. Of course, in both seasons Prescott had a full complement of weapons and was healthy both years. 

The same could be said going into 2023. The Cowboys have talented receivers in All-Pro CeeDee Lamb, a healthy Michael Gallup, and reliable veteran Brandin Cooks. The main concern is health, not just for Prescott, but for his offensive line as well. 

Prescott has dealt with injuries each of the last three seasons, and the lack of depth on the offensive line -- which sustained a handful of injuries last season -- could impact production.
