Schultz caught one of four targets for 11 yards in Sunday's loss to the Rams. Dak Prescott looked his way more often after Blake Jarwin hurt his knee in the first half, but the extra targets didn't result in much production for Schultz. With Jarwin feared to be lost for the season due to a torn ACL, Schultz could step into a much more significant role in the offense as the Cowboys' primary receiving tight end with Blake Bell mainly handling blocking assignments.
Schultz wrapped up the regular season having caught one of two targets for six yards. While he played in every game, Schultz never saw more than 17 snaps on offense in any given week and the second-year tight end had basically no role as a receiver working behind Jason Witten and Blake Jarwin. Even if Witten heads back into retirement, Schultz likely wouldn't get enough targets in 2020 to make a fantasy impact with Jarwin very clearly the heir apparent at the position.
Schultz played just one offensive snap in Monday night's win over the Giants. That marks a new low for the season for Schultz as he's currently buried on the tight-end depth chart for the Cowboys behind Jason Witten and Blake Jarwin. The second-year pro has just one target on the year, hauling it in for a six-yard gain back in Week 6 against the Jets.
Schultz (ankle) participated at Monday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Schultz dealt with the ankle injury through much of the preseason but appears on track to be ready for Sunday's season opener against the Giants. The 23-year-old projects to serve as the third tight end for the Cowboys.
Schultz (ankle) did not participate at practice Wednesday, the Cowboys' official site reports. Schultz played 27 offensive snaps during the preseason opener but hasn't practiced in almost two weeks due to the ankle sprain.
