2018 Fantasy Outlook
Jason Witten's departure leaves the Cowboys woefully short of experience at tight end, and Swaim - with only nine catches in 28 games over three seasons - is the closest thing the team has to a grizzled veteran at the position. Swaim's injury history and lack of standout tools would seem to make him a liability as a starter, but he's got a well-rounded skill set and can fit as a backup who won't tip the offense's hand whether a play is run or pass. The Cowboys may not have the luxury of using Swaim in that role if none of their other TE options impress in training camp, however. Read Past Outlooks

January 25, 2019
Swaim (knee) produced 26 receptions, 242 receiving yards and one touchdown over nine games in 2018.
ANALYSIS
Swaim fractured his wrist in a way that required surgery last November and ultimately was planted on injured reserve for the final six games of the season, a period in which second-year backup Blake Jarwin snagged 23 passes for 265 yards and three scores. While Swaim has since had the cast removed from his surgically repaired arm and seems to be nearly full health, the four-year veteran will become an unrestricted free agent in March and may not be as big of a priority for Dallas to re-sign in free agency than Swaim was before Jarwin's emergence.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
2015
A torn pectoral muscle ended Swaim's season after nine games last year, and offseason foot surgery could limit his snaps in the preseason, but when healthy he's a solid if unremarkable backup to Jason Witten. With athletic specimen Rico Gathers making a push for a roster spot, though, Swaim may find himself squeezed off the roster if he isn't able to fully show what he can do in training camp.
Swaim barely got on the field last year as a rookie, playing in only four games and catching his only target for zero yards. If Gavin Escobar's recovery from a torn Achilles is slower than expected it could push Swaim up the depth chart to begin the season, but he'll need to show more aptitude as a receiver to draw Tony Romo's eye. Even if Swaim does improve, he'll still be stuck behind Jason Witten, so snaps and targets will be tough to come by.
Dallas traded back into the seventh round of this year's draft to nab Swain, an athletic player who was primarily used as a blocking tight end in college after Texas switched offenses early in his career. As a senior at Texas, the 6-foot-4, 250 pound tight end hauled in just 10 passes for 70 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys think he can be something more down the road, but if he wins a roster spot this season, expect him to primarily contribute on special teams.
