View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Tolbert averaged 17.6 yards per catch across 4 seasons at South Alabama, going for 17.0 or more in each of the past 3 years.
  • His final 2 campaigns saw him account for 39.9% and 30.4% of team receiving yardage; 44.4% and 36.4% of TD catches.
  • Tolbert delivered above-average testing in the 40-yard dash, vertical and broad jump, producing an 85th-percentile relative athletic score.
  • He also rates above average for the position in burst score and catch radius.
  • Dallas drafted him in the 3rd round.
  • Tolbert lands in an offense that has shed WRs Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson from last year. Those 2 combined for 25.5% target share and 34% of targeted air yards.
  • Michael Gallup re-signed for big money, but is coming off a Jan. 2 ACL tear.
  • Dallas also signed James Washington to a 1-year contract in free agency, worth just less than $1.2 million.
  • According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Cowboys rookie WR Jalen Tolbert "is expected to start Week 1." Machota said right after the draft that the 3rd-round pick had a chance to compete for a significant role right away.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

We’ll see about Tolbert’s readiness for the pros, but he steps into a great situation for immediate opportunity. Any delay in the start of Michael Gallup’s season leaves an outside starting spot open. And James Washington has done little through 4 years in the league. Tolbert looks like primarily an outside receiver, though he did run one-third of his senior-year routes from the slot, according to Pro Football Focus. The rookie makes for an intriguing late stash in early drafts – especially on best-ball rosters with Dak Prescott. Pairing Tolbert with Gallup in Prescott lineups for best-ball tournaments could reap benefits by covering the position early and holding Gallup for late-season upside.

Michael Gallup, WR DAL

11:38am EDT 10/2/22

Gallup active

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is officially active for today’s game vs. the Commanders. He’s been a full participant in practice the past 2 weeks, but it’s still unclear how big a role he’ll play in his 1st game since last January’s torn ACL. Try to leave Gallup on fantasy benches this week. WR Jalen Tolbert is a healthy scratch for Dallas.

Cowboys WR Jalen Tolbert is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Bucs. The rookie had a rough August and is now behind WRs Noah Brown, Simi Fehoko and Dennis Houston -- along with, of course, CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys insider Bryan Broaddus "wouldn't be surprised" if WR Jalen Tolbert was a healthy scratch for Sunday night's opener vs. the Cowboys. We knew Tolbert had a disappointing August, but it'd still be surprising if he was scratched considering the Cowboys will be without WRs Michael Gallup and James Washington. The takeaway, of course, is that Tolbert should be nowhere near fantasy lineups. Noah Brown figures to serve as Dallas' #2 WR this week. WRs Simi Fehoko and Dennis Houston could also see snaps.
