2019 Fantasy Outlook
Thorson was a four-year starter at Northwestern but he didn't seem to significantly improve from season to season.

Thorson was signed to the Cowboys' practice squad Sunday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The fifth-round pick didn't impress with the Eagles this preseason and got cut as a result, but the Dallas scouting department saw enough potential in him to bring him aboard. Thorson remains a developmental prospect, and even if injuries hit the Cowboys hard at QB, it seems unlikely the rookie would be pressed into regular-season duty.
