Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz

Dalton Schultz isn’t the type of fantasy tight end that is going to win the week for you. He also isn’t the type of tight end who will likely lose the week for you. He seems to just be consistently mediocre. Some fantasy owners may be in search of consistent mediocrity for a position that is tough to fill this year. If you are one of those mediocrity-seeking owners, Schultz may be just the guy for you. He is averaging 9.3 points and 5.8 targets per game and in a favorable matchup this weekend, he sneaks into TE1 territory. Start him as a decent floor player with upside.
