Dak Prescott's Extension Talks Have Stalled

The Dallas Cowboys' contract-extension talks with quarterback Dak Prescott have reached an impasse after owner Jerry Jones called a deal imminent just last week. Not much is going on and nothing is expected to happen for the foreseeable future, according to sources. Prescott could be holding out for a shorter-term deal that a lot of recent quarterbacks have agreed to. The 26-year-old didn't let his contract talks get in the way of shredding the Giants for 405 yards and four touchdowns through the air in the season opener, and he gets another excellent matchup against Washington in Week 2. Consider Prescott a very solid QB1 against the Redskins.

Sam Darnold Could Be Out 3-7 Weeks

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (illness) is out for Monday night against the Browns with mononucleosis and could miss anywhere from three to seven weeks, according to sources. The illness affected Darnold in the season-opening loss to the Bills, and he's being quarantined from the rest of the team. At the very least, you shouldn't expect to have Darnold back until after the team's Week 4 bye at this point. He's a QB2 in season-long leagues, but this news obviously hurts his stock as a fantasy backup. Trevor Siemian will take over for as long as Darnold is out, but he's a low-end QB2 play. Downgrade all Jets receivers with Darnold missing time.

Nick Foles Could Return Week 11

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Nick Foles (collarbone) is targeting a Week 11 return to the team when the team faces the Indianapolis Colts. Jacksonville made Foles their big acquisition of the offseason, and while rookie Gardner Minshew looked solid in his NFL debut, the team is expected to have Foles back in the starting lineup when he's eligible to return. Regardless of which quarterback is under center, the situation in Jacksonville doesn't allow for their quarterback to ever really be ranked as more than a matchup-dependent QB2, but Foles does have the higher floor of the two passers.
