Week 1
Schultz ceded last season’s starting role back to TE Blake Jarwin, injured most of 2020. At Tampa Bay, Schultz’s production was more than twice that of Jarwin’s (6 catches to 3, 45 yards to 20). Above all else, Schultz is reliable.

From the Wayback machine of last year’s Fantasy Vision, we found this: “For the 3rd consecutive week, Schultz caught every pass thrown his way.” Prescott recognized that reliability by throwing to Schultz, who caught all 6 passes thrown to him, for a 3rd-and-1 play in the 3rd quarter.

Don’t look at this as Jarwin coming back and reestablishing himself as a favorite target for QB Dak Prescott, who also missed most of last season. We found this gem from last year: “With Prescott playing, Schultz scored 2 TDs; since then, he’s had only 1 in 7 games.”

Schultz and Prescott had some chemistry in 2020, and Schultz’s performance totals suffered when he was playing with the imposters who followed Dak at the helm of the offense. Keep an eye, or both eyes, on Schultz.

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Schultz finished 10th among TEs in PPR points in 2020. He also tied for 9th at the position in targets.
  • Schultz’s 6.6 career average depth target sits notably short of Blake Jarwin’s 9.0 and points to the key difference in their skill sets.
  • In their 2 shared seasons before Jarwin’s 2020 ACL tear, Schultz trailed Jarwin 77-19 in targets.
  • Pro Football Focus ranked Schultz 33rd in receiving grade among 55 TEs with 20+ targets last year.
  • Football Outsiders rated him 35th in DYAR and DVOA among 49 qualifying TEs. In each category, Schultz’s performance rated below the replacement/average level that serves as the measuring mark.
  • Jarwin appears on track for the start of training camp.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We’ll be watching this summer to see if Schultz and Blake Jarwin are competing for Dallas’ top TE spot. But Jarwin’s heading into the 2nd season of a 4-year deal that averages $5.5 million per year. He’s the much bigger downfield threat and opened 2020 as the starter ahead of Schultz (after drawing many more targets than Schultz as the #2 TE over the previous 2 seasons). As long as Jarwin stays healthy through camp and preseason, we’re betting on him to reclaim the TE target lead in Dallas. That would render Schultz a non-factor in fantasy.

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.

The Cowboys selected Stanford TE Dalton Schultz with the last pick of the 4th round. Schultz never topped 23 catches, 222 yards on 3 TDs in any of his 3 college seasons. And he tested as a mediocre 42nd percentile athlete. Schultz is at least a willing and able blocker, which can help him get on the field. And there’s opportunity in Dallas with Jason Witten (likely) retiring.
