The NFL season is finally upon us and it all gets started with the Dallas Cowboys taking on the reigning champs, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Dak Prescott is set to start the game, marking his first regular season game since Week 5 last season against the Giants when he suffered that horrific injury that kept him out for the rest of the year.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys QB Dak Prescott

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that Dak Prescott will be a “full go” for the first game of the season which comes as a huge relief for the Cowboys. Prescott never saw any real action in preseason due to a shoulder injury, but he was at least active and got some throws in during training when his shoulder allowed it. It comes at a time when Dallas has to face a very tough Bucs team that sees Tom Brady return again with Rob Gronkowski as well as a corps of very strong receivers. Dak is a must-start in Week 1 as he starts the season as a top five quarterback.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
