According to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic, the Cowboys have been splitting 1st-team TE reps evenly among Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Geoff Swaim. That, of course, makes it difficult for fantasy drafters to decide which -- if any -- to consider in the late rounds of best-ball drafts. Rico Gathers remains in the picture as well but doesn't really seem to be in the starting mix. We'd avoid the whole situation in current redraft formats and wait for a starter to emerge in the preseason.

Recent Shark Bites

Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) and WR Cole Beasley (ankle) each enter today questionable. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the "plan is for both to work out pregame and both be active," adding that Jarwin "has a better chance to play." Beasley's not worth waiting on for fantasy use. Even if he's active, he'll face a tough coverage matchup in slot CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, Pro Football Focus' highest-graded Rams corner. Jarwin will be worth DFS consideration against a Rams D that allowed the 10th most TE receptions this season. He'd obviously still carry durability risk, though. We'll confirm their statuses 90 minutes before kickoff.

Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Rams. He didn't practice all week. An unexciting fantasy option to begin with, Jarwin will come with elevated risk if he ends up active. If not, rookie Dalton Schultz will be left as Dallas' lead TE.
