Dak Prescott is getting healthy just in time for Week 1 and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback should be back on everyone’s radar as a bounce-back candidate for the 2021 season. 

Prescott, who’s been dealing with a shoulder injury, no longer has any limitations or a pitch count at practice, according to offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.

Cowboys fans can now breathe a sigh of relief, as the Prescott injury updates had been sounding more and more concerning leading up to Week 1. After suffering a season-ending ankle injury in Week 5 last year, Prescott went through a rough offseason trying to get back on the field consistently, but it appears his time out of practice is over. 

WynnBET has him at +400 to lead the league in passing yards (second) and +1500 to win the league’s MVP award this season. He’s also the frontrunner for the Comeback Player of the Year award. 

Prescott lit the NFL on fire in the 2020 season before his injury, averaging 371.2 passing yards per game while throwing nine touchdowns through the first five weeks of the season. The Cowboys were struggling when he went down (just 2-3), but ended up finishing with a dreadful 6-10 record (4-7 without Dak) and missed the postseason. 

With Prescott back and presumably healthy with this latest update, Dallas is the favorite to win the NFC East at +160 odds

I love backing Dak, especially for Comeback Player of the Year and to lead the league in passing; especially after seeing how high-powered Dallas’ offense was last season with him in the lineup. 

The Cowboys’ defense remains a major question after allowing the fifth-most points in the NFL in 2020, so Dallas and Prescott could find themselves in a ton of shootouts this season. That would put Dak in line for a major statistical year, and given the pace that he started out at last season, he’s a great bet to take another step now that he’s healthy.
