2020 Fantasy Outlook
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. Read Past Outlooks

Ends season on high note

January 4, 2021
Schultz caught seven of 10 targets for 70 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.
ANALYSIS
The third-year tight end had his highest yardage total since Week 4 while tying his season high in targets during the Cowboys' final outing of 2020. Schultz came into the season with low expectations, but a season-ending knee injury to Blake Jarwin in Week 1 thrust him into a starting role, and he never looked back. Schultz caught multiple passes in 14 of his 15 starts, finishing the year with a 63-615-4 line on 89 targets after managing only 13 grabs through his first 27 NFL games. Jarwin is expected to be fully recovered in time for training camp next season, but Schultz played well enough in his absence to earn a substantial role in 2021, even if he isn't the clear-cut starter.

Michael Gallup may have been a fantasy bust in 2020, but his late-season usage and production suggests a 1,000-yard season could be around the corner in 2021.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
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.
