2021 Fantasy Outlook
When Blake Jarwin went down Week 1 last season, Schultz was the next man up at tight end for Dallas, with the emphasis on "up." His Week 2 line of 9-88-1 proved to be the high-water mark for his season, as Schultz's numbers tumbled along with the rest of the offense when Dak Prescott got hurt Week 5, but he still put together a solid campaign. Jarwin will be healthy in 2021, however, and while Schultz has proved himself reliable, there won't be enough targets to go around for the duo with the team's elite trio of wideouts and Ezekiel Elliott all demanding looks as well.

Leading receiver in wild-card loss
TEDallas Cowboys
January 16, 2022
Schultz caught seven of eight targets for 89 yards in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the 49ers in the wild-card round.
ANALYSIS
The tight end was once again Dak Prescott's most reliable option, leading the Cowboys in catches and yards as their season came to a disappointing finish. Schultz proved his 2020 performance was no fluke, setting career highs across the board by hauling in 78 passes on 104 targets for 808 yards and eight touchdowns across 17 regular-season games. He'll head into the offseason an unrestricted free agent, and Schultz has set himself up for a big payday, either from Dallas or from another club.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
Heading into his third NFL season, Schultz has yet to demonstrate he can be anything more than a depth option at tight end. There will be snaps and targets available behind new starter Blake Jarwin following the departure of Jason Witten, but the team will likely use fewer two-TE sets under Mike McCarthy, and free-agent signing Blake Bell can handle the blocking assignments. Schultz has nowhere to go but up after catching only one pass in 2019, but his production should remain modest.
The Stanford product suited up for 11 games as a rookie last year, catching 12 of 17 targets for 116 yards, but the return of Jason Witten and the emergence of Blake Jarwin late in 2018 should relegate Schultz primarily to a blocking role.
A 2018 fourth-round pick out of Stanford, Schultz more than proved himself as a blocker in college as he helped turn Christian McCaffrey and Bryce Love into 1,000-yard rushers. Schultz didn't make much of an impact as a receiver, however, and while he has the height and athleticism to potentially be a useful red-zone target in the NFL, his ability to contribute between the 20s remains a question mark. There will be a lot of snaps at tight end up for grabs in Dallas this year following the retirement of Jason Witten, but the rookie will need to show he can be at least a reliable chain-mover for Dak Prescott to take a significant share of them.
