DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Minnesota Vikings

If you need to play Blake Jarwin Week 8, it may be time to turn to DFS. Jarwin has not had multiple catches in a game since Week 3 and has only flirted with double-digit fantasy points of late because of touchdowns. Unless your league requires three tight ends in a lineup, look elsewhere in Week 8.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs Giants

Jarwin is playing up to 20% fewer snaps per game than Dalton Schultz and is nothing more than a touchdown-dependent option in tight end-premium leagues.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 vs Carolina Panthers

Blake Jarwin played the role of the “other tight end” Week 3, only seeing two targets and playing just over 55% of snaps. The Carolina Panthers are not necessarily a pass funnel defense but are more likely to get beat by receiver and tight ends than running backs. Playing a Cowboy tight end is a risky proposition, especially if Dalton Schultz and Jarwin continue to have on-and-off weeks.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs Eagles

The pendulum swung slightly back towards Blake Jarwin Week 2 as he collected three receptions on four targets for the second consecutive week. Unless Amari Cooper sits Week 3 (bruised ribs) it is difficult to peg one of Jarwin or Dalton Schultz as a tight end to target. A Cooper inactive situation gives Jarwin an opportunity to run routes outside as the Cowboys receiver depth dwindles.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs Chargers

As long as the receiving work is split between Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz, it is difficult to trust either. Jarwin caught three of four targets for 20 yards in Week 1 compared to Schultz’s 6/6/45. It is only one week but this is not the bounce back Jarwin users were hoping for.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs Buccaneers
There is a lot of unknown at the tight end position in Dallas. Blake Jarwin is listed as the TE2 on their unofficial depth chart behind Dalton Schultz but was paid like their number one ahead of 2020. The Buccaneers defense is good but struggled against the tight end position last season, ranking 22nd in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed to the position.

DAL TE Blake Jarwin - 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside

Blake Jarwin enters year two of his four-year deal with Dallas and stands to benefit as a field-stretching option between the hashes. He entered 2020 as the favorite to be Dallas’s lead tight end with the retirement of Jason Witten but suffered a torn ACL Week 1 after one reception. Jarwin was replaced by Dalton Schultz and put up TE14 numbers with Andy Dalton as his quarterback once Dak Prescott was lost for the season. Jarwin as the lead tight end on a high-powered offense puts him well within the TE1 landscape.

Fantasy Downside

How will Jarwin look once training camp opens? He will be 10 months removed from surgery and will have to work his way into “game shape.” Jarwin also has to compete with Schultz after he produced more than respectable numbers as the starter. Schultz is also a better blocker, which could keep Jarwin off the field in three-wide receiver sets. A committee approach all but mitigates Jarwin’s fantasy upside. Any setback in his ACL recovery also hurts his value.

2021 Bottom Line

Jarwin is being paid like he is the top option at tight end in Dallas. That may be the only way he is the choice with an ACL injury on his chart and a talented second tight end ready to take his role. That said, Jarwin is the better athlete and if given the majority of the snaps is firmly in the conversation for top 10 fantasy tight end production.
