Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Two grabs in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz caught two of four targets for 22 yards in Sunday's 25-3 loss to Washington.

The tight end's four targets ranked third on the Cowboys for the day, and he was the only other Dallas player to catch multiple passes aside from Amari Cooper. The outlook for the entire offense is bleak due to multiple injuries along the offensive line, but with rookie Ben DiNucci potentially being forced into action Week 8 in place of Andy Dalton (concussion), Schultz could still see decent target volume as a security blanket for the young QB in his first NFL start.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Snags four passes in losing effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz corralled four of his five targets for 35 receiving yards during Monday's 38-10 loss to the Cardinals.

On what was a sluggish offensive night for the Cowboys, Andy Dalton at least proved capable of putting up garbage-time production, distributing 34 completions, 266 passing yards and a touchdown to his array of talented targets. Schultz was the team's third-leading receiver, also tying his second-highest catch total of the season during the blowout loss. He had an off game with just one catch and six yards against the Giants last Sunday, but otherwise he has scored two touchdowns while averaging 60.8 receiving yards per game since Week 2.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Just one catch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz caught one of three targets for six yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

The tight end didn't see much involvement in the passing game, as Dallas' wide receivers accounted for 25 of the 32 targets thrown by Dak Prescott (ankle) and Andy Dalton. With Prescott lost for the year and the offense potentially forced to be a little more conservative as a result, however, Schultz's role could become more consistent if he can establish some chemistry with Dalton.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Clear of thigh issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz (thigh) isn't listed on the Cowboys' injury report Wednesday.

Near the conclusion of this past Sunday's loss to the Browns, Schultz took a helmet to his thigh, but the issue hasn't affected his ability to take part in practice three days later. With Blake Jarwin (knee) on injured reserve, Schultz remains locked in as Dallas' No. 1 tight end for the rest of the season. So far this season, Schultz has managed 18 receptions (on 28 targets) for 219 yards and two touchdowns.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Expected to play Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz (thigh) is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

The tight end took a helmet to the thigh late in Sunday's loss to the Browns but the team is optimistic that he won't miss time. His level of participation in practice as the week progresses will give a clearer picture of his status heading into Sunday. If Schultz is limited, Blake Bell and Sean McKeon would see additional reps.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Hauls in TD against Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz caught four of eight targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Browns.

With Dak Prescott forced to air it out every week to try and compensate for the Cowboys' atrocious defense, Schultz is getting plenty of chances to make an impact, hauling in 17 catches on 24 targets for 208 yards and two TDs over the last three weeks. His production isn't likely to be consistent on a week-to-week basis given all the other options at Prescott's disposal, but the tight end still is headed for a breakout season.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Modest numbers in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz caught four of six targets for 48 yards in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

The tight end wasn't able to follow up his impressive Week 2 with a similar performance, but Schultz still received a healthy number of targets, and it should be noted Dak Prescott attempted 57 passes overall in a 38-31 loss. Schultz could be headed for a productive day Week 4 against a Browns defense that's already given up 22 catches and three TDs to tight ends through three weeks.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Breaks out with nine catches, TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz corralled nine of 10 targets for 88 yards and a touchdown, losing one fumble during Sunday's 40-39 win against the Falcons.

Fantasy GMs in leagues large and small will be rushing to the waiver wire to add the 24-year-old tight end, as he may have secured a key role within Dallas' high-octane passing attack as result of Blake Jarwin's torn ACL. Schultz attracted just 19 combined targets across his first 27 NFL appearances between 2018 and 2019, but he has already garnered 14 in the early going of the new campaign. The slate toughens up somewhat in Week 3, as the Cowboys take on a Seahawks defense that permitted just three catches and 38 receiving yards to the tight end position in its season opener.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Four targets Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Minimal role in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Sees just one snap in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Still nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. Codey McElroy (neck) and Blake Jarwin (ankle) are also managing injuries, leaving the Cowboys short on tight end depth.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Managing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz did not practice Monday due to an ankle injury, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Schultz is reportedly considered day-to-day. As long as the 2018 fourth-round pick remains sidelined, Codey McElroy and Marcus Lucas stand to see increased reps behind veteran tight end Jason Witten.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Stuck sharing snaps again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz figures to share playing time with Jason Witten and Blake Jarwin in 2019, Clarence Hill of The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

A 2018 fourth-round pick, Schultz caught 12 passes for 116 yards in 11 games during his rookie season while sharing snaps with Jarwin, Geoff Swaim and Rico Gathers. The Cowboys allowed Swaim to leave for Jacksonville, but the majority of his 512 snaps from 2018 likely will be filled by Witten, who reportedly is ticketed for about 25 plays per game. It will be difficult for any one player to emerge from the committee with fantasy relevance, and Witten would probably be the best bet to do so.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Quiet rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz played in 11 games in 2018, catching 12 passes on 17 targets for 116 yards.

The fourth-round pick out of Stanford didn't produce many highlights as a rookie, with modest single-game highs of three catches and 37 yards. Blake Jarwin's emergence late in the season will give Schultz an uphill climb in camp next summer if he wants to win the Cowboys' starting tight end spot even if he shows significant development, but with Geoff Swaim a free agent, there could still be plenty of snaps available for Schultz as the team's No. 2 TE.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Carving out modest role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz has drawn seven targets over the Cowboys' last two games, catching six of them for 60 yards.

While the rookie's snap count has been boosted since Geoff Swaim (wrist) got hurt, Schultz hasn't started seeing regular looks from Dak Prescott until the last couple of weeks. Blake Jarwin has emerged as the team's primary pass catcher at tight end, however, putting a significant damper on Schultz's fantasy potential.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Role to expand in Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Jason Garrett said Tuesday that the Cowboys would lean more heavily on Schultz in the team's Thanksgiving Day game against the Redskins with Geoff Swaim (wrist) sidelined, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports. "He's a capable guy," Garrett said of Schultz. "Just needs to play more."

Owner Jerry Jones said earlier Tuesday in his weekly radio appearance that Swaim would likely be sidelined for 3-to-4 weeks after requiring wrist surgery, leaving the Cowboys without their top tight end for multiple games. While Dallas will likely lean on a committee that also includes Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers to fill in for Swaim, Schultz seemingly projects as the preferred option of the lot by virtue of leading the trio in offensive snaps the past three weeks. Even so, Schultz doesn't make for a particularly intriguing fantasy dart in Week 12, given the likelihood that he'll split work in addition to the fact that Swaim had a fairly minimal role in the team's passing attack.

Cowboys' Dalton Schultz: Catches first career pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Schultz caught one of three targets for 12 yards during Sunday's 20-17 loss to Washington.

The three targets were Schultz's first bit of action on offense this season after being picked in the fourth round of this year's draft out of Stanford. More passes may be on the way. Starter Geoff Swaim is currently battling a sprained MCL ahead of the bye. Should Swaim be unavailable Week 9 against a stingy Titans defense, the rookie figures to battle Blake Jarwin and Rico Gathers -- with just four catches between them this season -- for targets. Keep an eye on Swaim's health and how the depth chart shakes out in the weeks ahead.
