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.

Solid season-opening effort

September 10, 2021
Schultz secured all six of his targets for 45 yards in the Cowboys' 31-29 loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday night.
ANALYSIS
The sure-handed tight end turned in an efficient performance that saw him slot in third in receptions and receiving yards on the Cowboys behind the prolific wideout duo of Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. Position mate Blake Jarwin was active and turned in three grabs of his own in his first regular-season action since tearing his ACL against the Rams in the 2020 season opener, but if Thursday is any indication, Schultz still will retain a solid role in an offense that could tilt toward the pass in quite a few games.

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.
