Prescott completed 19 of 24 passes for 248 yards and a touchdown, adding four carries for 36 yards and another score in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.
Prescott was once again efficient while taking a backseat to the Dallas running game, though this time around he was actually a part of the rushing attack, most notably on a one-yard plunge at the goal line. He later recorded the first passing touchdown of his career, and he was able to pick up key first downs whenever the Cowboys seemed like they might be letting the lead slip. While won't be turned loose unless the team has to play from behind, Prescott is shockingly poised and accurate for a rookie, giving him serious upside when such a scenario arises. Dating back to the preseason, he's yet to commit a turnover in the NFL. Next week brings a favorable matchup in San Francisco, though game flow could work in Ezekiel Elliott's favor more so than Prescott's.
Inman recorded three catches for 32 yards on four targets in the loss to the Colts Sunday.
Despite QB Philip Rivers throwing for 330 yards, Inman hardly factored much in the passing game as both Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams saw more targets than the third-year pro. Considering Inman will continue to see plenty of time on the field in the wake of season-ending ACL injuries to Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead, he still maintains some fantasy value, but likely should only be rostered in deep leagues at this point.
Martinez slugged a grand slam and finished 2-for-4 with four RBI and one walk in a 12-9 loss to the Royals on Sunday.
VMart has woken up in the last few days -- he's 7-for-14 (.500) with three home runs, nine RBI and five walks. The home run was Martinez's 27th of the season.
Elliott gained 140 yards on 30 carries and 20 yards on two receptions (two targets) in Sunday's 31-17 win over the Bears.
As promised by Jerry Jones, Elliott's workload wasn't impacted by his Week 2 fumble. However, he somehow failed to reach the end zone in a game that saw his team score a trio of rushing touchdowns, despite accounting for 30 of the Cowboys' 41 carries. Dak Prescott, Lance Dunbar and Alfred Morris each scored from in close, but it didn't seems like a concerted effort to avoid using Elliott near the goal line. With 20-plus carries in each of his first three NFL games, the No. 3 overall draft pick is safely entrenched in the top 10 of the weekly rankings at his position. Elliott should stay busy in a Week 4 matchup with Chip Kelly's fast-paced 49ers.
Miller caught eight passes for 78 yards and a pair of touchdowns on nine targets in Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Cowboys.
Although he actually trailed Kevin White for the team lead in targets, Miller finally came through with the breakout performance many were expecting prior to the season. It happened with Brian Hoyer under center, but while Hoyer's final statistics didn't look bad, he was unable to move the ball until Dallas had a three-score lead. Regardless of whether Jay Cutler (thumb) or Hoyer is the quarterback, Miller will be worth keeping a close eye on, as he was startable in most leagues last last December. While unlikely to be efficient, the Chicago passing attack does have some garbage-time potential.
