Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dallas placed Jarwin (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Jarwin's move to IR was a foregone conclusion after he was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee following the Cowboys' Week 1 loss to the Rams. The tight end will undergo season-ending surgery and turn his focus to returning to full health in advance of the 2021 campaign. Dalton Schultz is expected to step in as the Cowboys' top pass-catching tight end, while Blake Bell should also pick up more snaps but will likely serve as more of a blocker.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Torn ACL confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed Monday that Jarwin suffered a torn ACL during Sunday night's 20-17 loss to the Rams, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

The timing of Jarwin's season-ending injury is brutal, as he entered the 2020 campaign with Dallas' starting tight end gig to himself for the first time in his career. Now, after playing just 25 snaps and hauling in his sole target for 12 yards, Jarwin will have to turn his attention to rehabbing for 2021. Dalton Schultz and Blake Bell stand to take over at tight end in Jarwin's absence, though the primary beneficiary of his vacated targets could be rookie first-round pick CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The knee injury Jarwin suffered Sunday against the Rams is believed to be a torn ACL, which would knock the tight end out for the season, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Jarwin went down without any contact in the second quarter, and it appears the worst-case scenario is coming to fruition with this injury. Blake Bell and Dalton Schultz will take over at tight end with Jarwin out, and it's possible Dallas will turn to outside help at the position.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Ruled out for rest of Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Rams, Eric Williams of Sports Illustrated reports.

No surprise here, as Jarwin's non-contact knee injury looked to be significant. Expect clarifying information on the severity of the tight end's injury to emerge once the team has an opportunity to run further tests.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Suffers non-contact knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin suffered a knee injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Rams and is questionable to return, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Jarwin crumpled to the field with a non-contact injury, so he's probably on the wrong side of questionable for the remainder of this one. If the tight end is indeed done for the night, his next chance to suit up would come against the Falcons in Week 2, though Jarwin's injury looked like the kind that could force a multi-week absence.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Looking good in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Thursday during an interview on 105.3 The Fan that Jarwin "has had an amazing camp".

"It was hard to be a tight end in this organization when 82 [Jason Witten] was around," Jones continued. "Certainly, [Jarwin]'s getting to spread his wings now, whether it's Coach McCarthy, the offensive staff, his teammates, he keeps showing up out there." Jones also described the tight end's chemistry with quarterback Dak Prescott as "outstanding". Witten saw 83 targets last season as the starter, which would seem to be about Jarwin's ceiling in the offense as the team also tries to work first-round pick CeeDee Lamb into the mix, but the 26-year-old tight end should be a lot more effective on a per-target basis than the aging future Hall of Famer was.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Signs big extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin is signing a three-year extension worth up to $24.5 million, including $9.25 million guaranteed, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This comes just two weeks after the Cowboys placed a second-round restricted free-agent tender on Jarwin, who likely will replace Jason Witten as the team's top pass-catching threat at tight end. The 25-year-old did well with his limited opportunities the past two seasons, producing 8.7 yards per target and finding the end zone on six of his 58 catches. Multiple reports suggest Witten isn't expected to re-sign with the Cowboys.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Getting second-round tender
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin is getting a second-round restricted free agent tender, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Jason Witten, on the other hand, is expected to leave the Cowboys. Witten was a 16-game starter in 2019, when he tied for third on the team with 83 targets, but he produced just 8.4 yards per catch and 6.4 per target, while Jarwin averaged 11.8 YPC and 8.9 YPT (from a 31-365-3 receiving line). With wide receivers Amari Cooper and Randall Cobb also at the end of their respective contracts, the Cowboys are facing a lot of uncertainty with their pass catchers. Jarwin could enter 2020 as the third or fourth option in the passing game, though it's also possible he faces competition for the top job at tight end.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Modest numbers as No. 2 TE
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin wrapped up 2019 with 31 catches on 41 targets for 365 yards and three touchdowns.

Jason Witten's return to Dallas kept Jarwin from building on the upside he showed in 2018, but the latter still posted career highs in catches and yards. Jarwin also kept his burgeoning reputation as a Giants killer intact -- five of his six career touchdowns have come against the Cowboys' NFC East rivals, including scores in Week 1 and Week 9 this season. If Witten elects to re-retire, Jarwin could be headed for a 2020 breakout. Even if Jarwin remains in the No. 2 role behind the future Hall of Famer, his role in the passing game figures to grow given his big-play ability.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Secures lone target
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught his only target for 14 yards during Sunday's loss to Philadelphia.

Jarwin played only 19 offensive snaps -- his second-lowest total of the season -- as the Cowboys struggled to score all game. The 25-year-old enters the final week of the regular season with 31 catches for 365 yards and three touchdowns.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Two catches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught two of three targets for 40 yards in Sunday's win over the Rams.

As has become common this season, Jason Witten saw more targets and catches than Jarwin, who gained more yards despite a lower volume, but the former was able to find the end zone Sunday. Jarwin's athleticism and big-play ability could make him a breakout star in 2020 if Witten retires again, but for now he'll have to be content with a secondary role in the Cowboys offense.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Productive in Week 14 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin hauled in six of seven targets for 50 yards in the Cowboys' 31-24 loss to the Bears on Thursday.

Jarwin enjoyed a career-best night in what was the Cowboys' third straight loss, with his seven targets also serving as a season high. The third-year tight end now has a career-high 28 receptions for the campaign as well, and he's notched multiple grabs in five straight games, easily the most productive stretch of his three-season NFL tenure. Jarwin will look to stay hot versus the Rams in a Week 15 matchup, a week from Sunday.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Nabs two passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught two of three targets for nine yards during Thursday's 26-15 loss to Buffalo.

The Bills kept Jarwin in check Thursday as the tight end was held under 20 yards for the third consecutive game. He has some ability to stretch the field -- his six catches of 20 or more yards rank fourth on the team despite the fact he's only sixth in receptions. A series of tough opponents have stifled Jarwin's production, however, and things won't get much easier Thursday against Chicago, which has surrendered just 31 passes of 20 or more yards this season - sixth fewest in the league.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Struggles in rain Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught three of four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.

The Cowboys' entire offense had trouble moving the ball in the rain against a very stingy opponent, but Jarwin still out-produced Jason Witten on the afternoon. That's become a consistent pattern. Witten has caught 16 of 25 targets for a meager 113 yards over the last four games, but Jarwin has turned only 11 targets into nine catches for 132 yards and a TD over that same stretch. As yet, the Cowboys don't seem inclined to tip the division of snaps and looks in the younger tight end's favor, but based on his performance, Jarwin has earned a bigger role.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Flashes big-play potential Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught both his targets for 38 yards in Sunday's win over the Lions.

The third-year tight end turned a short pass from Dak Prescott into a 23-yard gain and a game-clinching first down inside the final two minutes of the fourth quarter. Jarwin remains a tertiary part of the Cowboys' passing game and the No. 2 tight end behind Jason Witten for now, but his athleticism and big-play potential gives him some stash appeal in dynasty leagues should Witten retire again. Of Jarwin's 17 catches this season, six have gone for 20 yards or more.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Low volume in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught three of four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

The catches and targets both tied his season highs, and Jarwin's fantasy value remains tied to whether he can find the end zone or not in any given week. Over the last four games, he's seen 10 targets to Jason Witten's 25, and it would likely take a Witten injury to put Jarwin on the radar in most leagues.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Makes only catch count
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught his only target for a 42-yard touchdown in Monday's win over the Giants.

The third-year tight end took a short dump-off from a scrambling Dak Prescott and did the rest, knifing through the New York secondary nearly untouched with a burst of speed. While Jason Witten remains one of Prescott's first looks when the QB wants to move the sticks, Jarwin has flashed some big-play ability the future Hall of Famer no longer possesses, catching 12 of 16 targets for 162 yards and three scores through eight games.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Catches second TD of year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught his only target for a one-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over the Eagles.

The tight end was left all alone in the end zone after Philly bit hard on a play-action fake to Ezekiel Elliott at the goal line. Jarwin has yet to break the 50-yard mark in any game this season as Jason Witten's return has reduced him to a complementary role at best in the offense, but he has scored two TDs among his 11 catches.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Catches two passes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught two of four targets for six total yards during Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Jets.

Jarwin was held under 10 yards for the second time in three games as the Cowboys continue to slide. Jarwin is far from the Cowboys' top target on a good day, but the fact is that Dallas hasn't had many good days lately. Dak Prescott's quarterback rating during the three-game losing streak is 82.7, down from 128.0 during the first three weeks of the season. Jarwin and the rest of Dallas' targets are going to have trouble making strides until the dimension of the offense changes. Fortunately, a struggling Eagles defense is on deck for Sunday.

Cowboys' Blake Jarwin: Sets up lone Dallas score
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jarwin caught all three of his targets for 49 total yards during Sunday's 12-10 loss to the Saints.

The potent Dallas offense hit a road block Sunday, but Jarwin managed to deliver the team's longest play from scrimmage midway through the third quarter when, off play action, he slipped behind three defenders down the seam and set up an Ezekiel Elliott touchdown run with a 35-yard reception. That Sunday's three receptions and 49 yards both tied or set season highs is not great for Jarwin, who plays behind veteran Jason Witten, but the third-year player may be due for a few more opportunities. Tied for a team-high three receptions of at least 20 yards, Jarwin adds a different dimension than Witten that might be useful against a stingy Packers pass defense in Week 5.
