RANKS
$Signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Cowboys in March of 2023.
Sees little action as backup
QBDallas Cowboys
January 22, 2024
Rush completed 18 of 24 passes for 144 yards and an interception over seven regular-season games in 2023.
ANALYSIS
While the Cowboys' penchant for early-season blowouts gave Rush plenty of garbage-time opportunities, the 30-year-old quarterback didn't get a start as Dak Prescott stayed healthy all year. Rush is under contract for one more season at a modest $2.25 million, and while his familiarity with the offense should ensure he returns to Dallas in 2024, he could face a challenge for the No. 2 role from Trey Lance.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2019
2018
2017
Rush claimed the No. 2 job behind Dak Prescott in camp last year and made himself a fan favorite Week 8 by leading the Cowboys to a win at Minnesota in his only start of the season. The 28-year-old doesn't offer much in the way of arm strength or athleticism, but he knows the scheme and makes good decisions. He again is positioned for the backup role in 2022, but he might have to fend off Will Grier to hang onto it.
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.
