C. Quality Starts - Wide Receiver
"Quality Starts" is a term pioneered from the Fantasy Baseball gurus. It's a statistic that represents how often a starting pitcher will put up a good (not great, just good) performance in a given game. Jeff Pasquino brings it to Football and in this one, applies it to wide receivers.

Source: DallasCowboys.com - David Helman

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott officially signed his one-year tender offer Monday, June 22.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

This gives him a fully guaranteed one-year deal worth around $31 million. The two sides still have until July 15th to come up with a long-term agreement. By signing his tender, Prescott now must show up to all mandatory work when training camp rolls around. Reports indicate that Prescott wants a four-year deal while the team wants him to sign a five-year contract. Stay tuned.

2. CIN - Joe Burrow has impressed

Cincinnati Bengals No. 1 overall draft pick QB Joe Burrow has impressed head coach Zac Taylor with his preparation for meetings and mental acumen. 'He's been great,' Taylor said. 'As advertised is the best way to put it. You can tell he spends a lot of time on his own being prepared with questions and he's doing a great job taking ownership, which is important for a quarterback to do, and he's doing everything he can to own this offense. Been really impressed with him, but not surprised.'

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

There is no doubt that Burrow has the upside to be a franchise quarterback for the Bengals, and he's going to start from day one. We're excited to see how his skills translate to the pro level. Burrow is not only accurate as a passer, but his pass placement is uncanny. He's got nice weapons around him in the passing game and a strong rushing attack. Burrow is a low-end QB2 with upside for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

3. DAL - QB Dak Prescott still seeking four-year deal

Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is still looking for a four-year contract extension, while the Cowboys would prefer to give Prescott a five-year contract, according to a source.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

This must be the biggest hangup in this contract situation. With the uncertain nature of the salary cap due to COVID-19, things are more complicated than ever. The Cowboys and Prescott have until mid-July to get a new long-term deal done.

4. TEN - Cole McDonald under contract

Tennessee Titans seventh-round draft choice QB Cole McDonald agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Titans Monday, June 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

McDonald is a player we are watching in deep dynasty formats. During his college career at Hawaii, McDonald showed that he wasn't afraid to attack all levels of the field as a passer. He is confident in his arm and is known as a rhythm passer. McDonald wasn't asked to make full-field reads in college and he'll have to learn how to work better from under center as he primarily operated out of the shotgun. He'll compete for a spot in the pecking order behind starter Ryan Tannehill.

New York Giants QB Daniel Jones has had a very productive offseason and has taken a leadership role on the team, according to head coach Joe Judge.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Jones flashed as a rookie in 2019 but that was under former head coach Pat Shurmur. We'll see how Jones works under Judge in 2020. He's got healthier weapons around him in the passing game and a strong rushing attack featuring Saquon Barkley. Jones is a QB2 for Fantasy GMs this season.

6. CIN - WR A.J. Green has not signed tender yet

Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green has not signed his one-year franchise tag tender offer at this point. The two sides have until July 15 to reach a long-term agreement.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

We'll see what happens in mid-July. Deals get done at deadlines but there seems to be little traction between Green and the Bengals. Having him out there in 2020 and beyond would greatly help the development of young quarterback Joe Burrow.

7. CLE - WR Jarvis Landry targeted on play action

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry recorded 36 receptions on play-action passes during the 2019 season, which was the most among wide receivers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

Landry is great at getting open underneath. The play-action fakes allow defenses to bite o the run which only gets Landry more room to work with. The Browns should be more efficient on offense this year, and Landry should clean up in this category once again.

8. LAR - WR Robert Woods successful on play action

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods recorded 35 receptions on play-action passes during the 2019 season, which ranked second among wide receivers.

[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ FOOTBALLGUYS VIEW ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ] ]

The Rams want to use play-action fakes to set up receptions down the field. They also can be used for quick fakes and screen passes to the other side of the formation. Woods led all wide receivers in 2019 with 146 yards on screen passes and this makes him a high-floor WR2 for Fantasy GMs.
