Rush is expected to serve as the Cowboys' backup quarterback Sunday against the Broncos after head coach Mike McCarthy said Dak Prescott (calf) is on track to start Week 9 upon returning to full participation in practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Prescott appeared close to playing last week leading up to the Cowboys' eventual 20-16 win over the Vikings, so it comes as little surprise that he's on track to return to the lineup after he participated in both of the Cowboys' first two Week 9 practices. Barring a setback over the next day or two, Prescott will take back the reins of the offense from Rush, who performed capably against Minnesota in the first extended NFL action of his five-year career. He completed 24 of 40 pass attempts for 325 yards and two touchdowns in the victory, though he committed a pair of turnovers (an interception and a lost fumble).

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
2017
Rush has thrown a combined three passes over his first two seasons in the league, but he was nonetheless given a vote of confidence as the primary backup in 2018, and there's little to suggest that will change in the upcoming season. He'll have to hold off Mike White in the preseason, though White did not see a single snap of action in his 2018 rookie campaign. Even if Rush gets an opportunity, the uncertainty limits his fantasy viability, even in dynasty and deeper 2-QB leagues.
Rush saw brief action in two games last year after replacing Kellen Moore as Dak Prescott's backup. He'll face competition for the job from fifth round pick Mike White, but Rush's experience in the Cowboys' system could give him a slight edge.
Rush will attempt to follow in the footsteps of Tony Romo as one of the rare undrafted free agent quarterbacks to succeed in the NFL. With a similar profile to current Cowboys backup Kellen Moore, Rush makes up for what he lacks in arm strength with football IQ. Nonetheless, Rush requires time on the practice squad to re-shape his body and improve his throwing mechanics.
