Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin has been diagnosed with a "clean" ACL tear, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jarwin is done for 2020 but should make a full recovery for the start of the 2021 campaign. His absence leaves Dalton Schultz atop the TE depth chart. He struggled in Sunday night's loss to the Rams and is only worth stashing in deep and TE-premium leagues. The loss of Jarwin figures to mean more targets for Dallas' WRs and RBs.
The Cowboys believe TE Blake Jarwin tore his right ACL in Sunday's game against the Rams, according to insider Michael Gehlken. If that's the case, Jarwin will miss the rest of the 2020 campaign. That'd leave Dalton Schultz as Dallas' top TE. He's not an exciting talent, but the strength of Dallas' offense might make him a spot-start option in fantasy football. Jarwin's absence might also just mean more targets for WRs Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup and CeeDee Lamb.
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.
The Cowboys and TE Blake Jarwin have agreed to a 3-year, $24.25 million extension with $9.25 million guaranteed, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That makes Jarwin a heavy favorite to operate as Dallas' lead TE in 2020. The 25-year-old has totaled 58 catches, 672 yards and 6 TDs over the last 2 seasons, posting a 75.3% catch rate and 11.6 yards per catch. His fantasy upside would get a boost if Dallas loses WR Amari Cooper in free agency.
