Scouting report

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at New Orleans Saints

Injuries to Dallas’s wide receiver corps shined a light on Dalton Schultz Week 12. Schultz caught his first touchdown since Week 4 and has nine receptions for 99 yards the past two games. With Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson expected to miss Week 13, Schultz should be one of Dak Prescott's top three or four targets against the New Orleans Saints this week. After not allowing a touchdown to opposing tight ends all season, the Saints have allowed three the past three games, with two going to Dawson Knox Week 12. There is upside with Schultz this week, but with the Saints playing well against tight ends for the majority of the season, a low fantasy floor is in play.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 versus Las Vegas Raiders

It should be a busy Thanksgiving for Dalton Schultz, especially if CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out. The Las Vegas Raiders are 29th in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to tight ends. The Raiders did well to slow down the Bengals' tight ends Week 11, but have been giving to tight ends each week since Week 5, giving up at least 70 receiving yards to the position Weeks 6-10. Start Schultz with confidence due to receiver injuries in Dallas.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Kansas City Chiefs

A healthy offense hurt Schultz’s targets and production in Week 10, but going against one of the worst teams against tight ends could help Week 11. The Chiefs rank 26th in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to the position, including an average of 5.2/64.1/0.6 to opposing tight ends per game. Temper expectations for Schultz, but his attachment to one of the best offenses in football will keep him in the TE1 conversation for another week.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 10 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs Atlanta Falcons

A bounce back could be in store Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons after two duds against top 10 teams in aFPA against tight ends. We will also get to see what Schultz’s role is with Michael Gallup back. It is safe to say some of Gallup’s work filtered to Schultz, so expecting a ceiling game from Schultz may be asking too much. Regardless, Schultz has top 10 upside in Week 10.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 9 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 versus Denver Broncos

Schultz’s production took a step back Week 8 without Dak Prescott and even if Prescott comes back Week 9 he has one of the toughest matchups. The Broncos' defense allows an average of three catches and 39 yards to the tight end position per game and have yet to allow a touchdown. Only two tight ends – Darren Waller and Mark Andrews – have topped 50 yards in a game. The good thing is Schultz has shown that he has the talent to thrive at the position, but he will need Prescott under center to be at his best.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 8 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 8 at Minnesota Vikings

No matter the talent up against him, Dalton Schultz has performed. He has at least six receptions and 45 yards in five of six games in 2021 and is the clear TE1 in Dallas. The Minnesota Vikings have done well against opposing tight ends and limited T.J. Hockenson (albeit injured) to 2/22 Week 5. With the number of offensive weapons on Dallas, expect Schultz to slip through the cracks enough to be a TE1 Week 8.

DAL TE Dalton Schultz - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 at Patriots

Schultz will have his most difficult matchup in Week 6 against the New England Patriots. New England is fourth in tight end aFPA and has not allowed one to top 30 yards receiving. The position as a whole has only caught one touchdown on 11 receptions. Week 5 was the first time the Patriots allowed over 30 yards to the position in one week. Schultz has been excellent through five games and has a chance to put up the most fantasy points at the position. He ranks 10th in 4for4’s Week 6 tight end rankings.
