Cowboys' Rico Gathers: Quiet in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gathers finished the regular season with three catches on seven targets for 45 yards.

While he suited up for 15 games -- the first regular-season action of his NFL career -- Gathers never played more than 18 snaps on offense, and six of his seven targets came before the Cowboys' Week 8 bye. He's still got the size and athleticism to potentially make an impact if everything comes together for him, but the former college basketball player remains a long shot to ever provide fantasy value.

Cowboys' Rico Gathers: Catchless in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gathers was unable to convert his lone target into a catch during Sunday's 20-17 loss to Washington.

Gathers has not been targeted multiple times in a game since Week 2. That might change following the bye as starter Geoff Swaim deals with a sprained MCL. Should Swaim miss any time, the pickings are relatively slim with Gathers and Blake Jarwin tied with two catches and six targets apiece on the season. Keep an eye on Swaim's injury status and Jarwin and Gathers' competition ahead of what should be a difficult Week 9 matchup against Tennessee.

Cowboys' Rico Gathers: Getting more snaps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gathers caught one pass for 14 yards while playing a career-high 14 offensive snaps during Sunday's 40-7 victory over the Jaguars.

A week after recording the first reception of his professional career last Sunday against Houston, Gathers followed up with another catch this week on a bootleg that set the Cowboys up for the team's second touchdown of the day. While the Baylor product still isn't seeing enough playing time -- let alone targets -- to justify being rostered in most fantasy formats, it's nonetheless encouraging that he's averaged over 10 offensive snaps over the past three weeks after seeing just five apiece in Week 2 and Week 3 (Gathers was inactive for Week 1).

Cowboys' Rico Gathers: No receptions in first NFL action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gathers failed to catch either of his targets in Sunday night's win over the Giants.

Both times Dak Prescott threw his way, the quarterback was scrambling to get away from the Giants' pass rush, which suggests that Gathers isn't yet among the QB's first reads. The tight end's athleticism and wingspan should earn him more trust in the offense now that he's beginning to prove he can get open, though, and his two targets were two more than the rest of Dallas' tight ends combined. He's worth keeping an eye on as his role grows, but as yet Gathers' fantasy value is minimal.

Cowboys' Rico Gathers: Active for SNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gathers is active for Sunday's game against the Giants, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Gathers was a healthy inactive Week 1 in Carolina and has yet to make an appearance in a regular-season game. Dalton Schultz will be the scratch this week, leaving Gathers, Blake Jarwin and Geoff Swaim as the Cowboys' options at tight end. None of the bunch is a strong bet to draw more than three or four targets.
