Ben DiNucci Benched Ahead Of Week 9

Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci has been benched ahead of the Week 9 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. DiNucci was predictably atrocious in leading the Cowboys offense in Week 8. While Andy Dalton (concussion, COVID) was originally expected back for Week 9, he has already been declared out. That leaves the Cowboys with a battle between Garrett Gilbert and Cooper Rush for the starting role against the undefeated Steelers. Regardless of who starts on Sunday, the entire Cowboys offense will take a big hit in fantasy value.

Ben DiNucci Struggles As Expected In Week 8

Dallas Cowboys rookie quarterback Ben DiNucci struggled in a loss to the Eagles in Week 8. Filling in for Andy Dalton (concussion), who was filling in for Dak Prescott (ankle), DiNucci completed 21 of his 40 pass attempts for 180 scoreless yards. He did not throw an interception, but he did lose two fumbles, one of which was a strip sack returned for a touchdown. DiNucci also ran the ball five times for 22 yards. He and the Cowboys offense were unable to score any touchdowns, settling for three field goals total. Dalton is expected back next week, so DiNucci should settle back into his backup role for now. He certainly didn't do anything to push Dalton for a starting role.

Andy Dalton Still In Protocol, Ben DiNucci Preparing To Start

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said that quarterback Andy Dalton (concussion) remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and that the team is preparing rookie Ben DiNucci to start in Week 8 against the Eagles. A final decision will be made on Saturday. "He's a confident young man. He has a lot of tools to work with," McCarthy said about DiNucci. Dalton is a long shot at this point to play against the division-rival Eagles, so DiNucci looks set to make his first career NFL start. He should be considered a desperation low-end QB2 for superflex leagues, while receivers Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup need to be downgraded even against Philly's shaky secondary. The Eagles Defense will be a strong streaming option Sunday.
