Offensive Player of the Year: Dak Prescott
You could make the case for Lamb being the Cowboys' Offensive Player of the Year, but I'm going to avoid doubling up on awards. Instead, let's go with Dak Prescott as the midseason OPOY.
After struggling in 2022, Prescott looks more like his old self this year. The veteran gunslinger is averaging 13 more passing yards on a better completion rate (70.2% vs. 66.%) than he did last season. He's also cut his interception percentage in half (1.9% vs. 3.8%), showcasing an improved decision-making ability.
What sealed Prescott winning this award is how well he's played in recent weeks. Since his three-INT debacle against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 5, the 30-year-old has completed 71.4% of passes for 950 yards and eight TDs (to one INT) with a 120.7 passer rating in three starts.
Will he throw for 300-plus yards in every game down the stretch? Probably not, but it goes without saying that the Cowboys are a scarier team when Prescott plays mistake-free football. If he keeps up his current play for the next nine weeks, it's going to be hard for most teams to keep pace with Dallas' offense.
