After the initial evaluation, the Cowboys fear Blake Jarwin’s season is finished with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports. Jarwin will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Jarwin had one catch for 12 yards before leaving with his non-contact injury. Dalton Schultz and Blake Bell are the only other tight ends on the team’s roster, so the Cowboys will have to find another tight end, the story said. Fantasy owners should start looking for other options.
DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 vs. Los Angeles Rams
Blake Jarwin has intriguing sleeper appeal as the starting tight end in a high-powered offense, but there is too much uncertainty surrounding his role to start him as a TE1 in Week 1 against the Rams. He can be deployed as an upside TE2 in deep leagues given the projected high-scoring nature of the Sunday night game between the Rams and Cowboys.
