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.

Another strong effort Sunday

October 17, 2021
Schultz caught five of six targets for 79 yards in Sunday's 35-29 overtime win over the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
The tight end continues to show a great rapport with Dak Prescott, hauling in at least five passes in five of six games so far this season, but Schultz missed out on his fourth TD of the year when Blake Jarwin caught a one-yard score instead. Schultz will head into the Cowboys' Week 7 bye with 31 receptions on 37 targets for 359 yards and three touchdowns.

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.
