View TE Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Schultz finished 3rd among TEs in PPR points last season; 5th in points per game (0.1 ahead of Darren Waller).
  • That followed a TE10 finish in PPR in 2020, though he ranked just 16th in points per game among TEs who reached 20 targets.
  • Schultz ranked 6th among TEs in targets last season but tied for just 13th at the position in target share.
  • Dallas passed (sacks included) on 59% of offensive snaps last season, down slightly vs. 2020 but up vs. any other season with Dak Prescott as the most frequent starter.
  • Schultz ranked 6th at the position in receiving yards, but just 26th in yards after catch per reception (among TEs with 20+ catches). He also ranked 13th at the position in average target depth. That combo highlights how much target volume drove his yardage.
  • Schultz tied for 10th among TEs in catch rate, though he caught more passes than any TE ahead of him on that list.
  • The Cowboys shed 25.5% target share from last year’s offense by trading Amari Cooper and letting Cedrick Wilson leave in free agency.
  • Michael Gallup returns after losing 8 games to injury last season, but he’s also coming off a Jan. 2 ACL tear.
  • Dallas drafted WR Jalen Tolbert in Round 3 and TE Jake Ferguson in Round 4. Ferguson caught 145 passes across 4 starting seasons at Wisconsin. He ranked 2nd on the team in receptions, receiving yards and TD catches as a 2018 freshman.
  • The Cowboys applied the franchise tag to keep Schultz from reaching free agency.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

The Cowboys clearly love Schultz. If they didn’t, they could have let him test the market – especially in an offseason that found the team cap-strapped enough that it traded Amari Cooper for minimal return. Schultz remains in a good situation for target upside, with unproven new guys taking the spots of more tested veterans. We’re betting his fantasy totals dip vs. last season, but there’s no arguing that he presents an attractive PPR ceiling.

Schultz reporting to minicamp

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz will report to the start of mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Schultz skipped last week's OTAs as he angles for a long-term deal. He's currently scheduled to play 2022 on the franchise tag. "No deal imminent, but contract talks have picked up in recent days," Pelissero tweeted. We'll continue to keep an eye on the situation, but it doesn't look like there's holdout risk with Schultz.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz is skipping the rest of voluntary OTAs over frustration with contract negotiations, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Schultz has already signed his franchise tender, which locks him in for the coming season. The 2 sides have until July 15 to agree on a longer-term deal. If that doesn't happen by the deadline, Schultz will play out the 1-year deal and hit the open market again next March. The fact that he has already signed the tender should keep any contract impasse from impacting Schultz's availability for 2022.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys are expected to apply the franchise tag to TE Dalton Schultz today. Dallas is up against the salary cap, so the team would surely prefer to knock out a longer-term deal with Schultz. For fantasy football purposes, draft as though Schultz will remain a Cowboy at least through 2022. He could find himself in an even better situation for target volume than last year, with WR Amari Cooper expected to leave and WR Michael Gallup coming off an ACL tear.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken believes the Cowboys' starters are "unlikely to see [their] usual workload" vs. the Eagles tonight. Dallas has little to play for with the NFC East already clinched. QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR CeeDee Lamb, WR Amari Cooper and TE Dalton Schultz are all risky fantasy plays.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that his team will play its starters in Saturday night's regular-season finale at Philadelphia. "We're going to line up to do what we need to do to win the game," McCarthy told reporters, according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. We wouldn't be shocked if RB Ezekiel Elliott gets the night off to rest his knee, or if the Eagles decide to rest starters and thus present a light challenge. For now, though, you should assume that any active Cowboys on your fantasy football roster will be going in Week 18.

Schultz surprisingly saw 104 targets in a breakout 2021. This offseason, Dallas dealt Amari Cooper to Cleveland but re-signed Michael Gallup. Schultz was slapped with the franchise tag, so his long-term future remains uncertain.
