Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Wraps up disappointing regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar caught four passes on seven targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in 16 games in 2016.

The Cowboys had depth problems at tight end in 2016 due to injuries to James Hanna (knee) and Geoff Swaim (chest), but rather than give Escobar more responsibility, Dallas simply moved away from using two-TE sets and he actually saw fewer snaps than he had either of the previous two years. That's as clear an indication as any that the organization doesn't see Escobar as part of their future, so expect to see him in a different uniform in 2017.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Catches first pass of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar caught his first pass of the season, a two-yard touchdown, in Sunday's 35-10 rout of the Browns.

The fourth-year tight end has been a complete non-factor this season, but as has been the case throughout Escobar's career, when he does catch a pass, it tends to be in the end zone. Barring an injury to Jason Witten, don't look for Escobar's workload to increase dramatically any time soon.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Listed as Cowboys' third tight end
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar is listed behind Jason Witten and Geoff Swaim on the Cowboys' initial regular-season depth chart, Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram reports.

Escobar's listing behind Swaim is likely due in part to the torn Achilles Escobar suffered last season, as his recovery process lasted into training camp. However, Escobar avoided the PUP list, meaning he will be eligible to play Week 1. Even if he is a full go against the Giants on Sunday, Escobar's placement behind Swaim on the depth chart could mean a loss of playing time, and his fantasy production will always be hit-or-miss with the remarkably consistent Witten taking most of the snaps at tight end.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Limited production in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar caught one pass on five targets for 13 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans.

It wasn't an impressive line by any means, but the important takeaway is that Escobar seems fully recovered from his Achilles injury. He'll once again be Jason Witten's primary backup and an occasional red zone option for the Cowboys.

Cowboys' Gavin Escobar: Did not practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Escobar (Achilles) did not practice on Sunday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Escobar will get the day off as he continues to nurse a torn Achilles he suffered last season. If he continues to miss practice time he may be in danger of missing the Cowboys' first preseason matchup against the Rams next Saturday.
