The Cowboys released TE Blake Jarwin with an injury settlement. It's not a surprising move after recent reports that Jarwin underwent major hip surgery that's expected to cost him the start of the 2022 season. We'll see if another team takes a shot on him before then, but Jarwin isn't worth a pick in early best-ball drafts.

Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin had hip surgery in late February that's "very uncommon for an active NFL player," a source tells The Athletic's Michael Gehlken. "He is not expected to be available for the start of the 2022 season, clouding his Cowboys future," Gehlken adds. Jarwin tore his ACL in September 2020. He was ready for the start of the 2021 campaign but went down with a hip injury in Week 8 that ended his season. We'll monitor his rehab this offseason, but he's not worth a pick in early best-ball drafts. Jarwin's situation probably makes it more likely that Dallas does what it has to do to bring back impending free-agent TE Dalton Schultz.

The Cowboys have placed TE Blake Jarwin on IR with his hip injury. That means he'll miss at least the next 3 games, which can only help the target outlook for TE Dalton Schultz. Sean McKeon and Jeremy Sprinkle sit behind him on the depth chart.

Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (hip) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Broncos. He’s averaged 2.1 targets per game on the season and just 1 per game over the last 3, so this is just a slight boost for TE Dalton Schultz.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz missed the team's 2nd preseason game with a "minor" ankle sprain, according to the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. "Fully expected to be ready for start of season," Gehlken adds. We'll see when Schultz is able to get back on the field, but his absence will give TE Blake Jarwin a shot to lay claim to the starting job.

Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin was left off the PUP list to open training camp. It's excellent news after last September's torn ACL and confirms that the team expects him to be ready for the start of the season. Jarwin got a nice 4-year, $22 million deal last offseason and was set to serve as Dallas' starting TE before that knee injury. Assuming he's back to 100%, Jarwin should get that chance again in 2021. He faces stiff target competition in WRs Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup -- but the strength of the Cowboys passing game gives Jarwin top-12 fantasy upside.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy talked up TE Blake Jarwin on Sunday. “I think Blake is going to make a real impact on our offense," McCarthy said. "The ability to attack the middle of the field, in my view, is always critical to the passing game ... I’ve been so impressed with him and really the entire tight end group.” Jarwin has been efficient on somewhat limited opportunities over the past couple of seasons but gets a big opportunity in 2020 with Jason Witten gone. At a TE17 ADP, Jarwin is 1 of our favorite targets at the position.
