More Dallas Cowboys Offense

Tight End (3)

Starter: Blake Jarwin

TE2: Dalton Schultz

Depth: Blake Bell

The Dallas Cowboys and Mike McCarthy both have a history of keeping four tight ends but in this case the situation calls for just three. It’s a combination of needs elsewhere and limited depth at TE.

Blake Jarwin is going to explode this season as a big play tight end. His stats have been on the rise and all he needs is Witten’s workload from last year and the whole league will see it.

Dalton Schultz is someone I’ve been touting all offseason as an extremely underrated player capable of seizing the TE2 job. It looks like that may come to fruition now. He’s a strong blocker and a good short-yardage option as a pass-catcher.

Blake Bell is the safety net. He can catch and he can block. What’s not to like?

Running Back (2)

RB1: Ezekiel Elliott

RB2: Tony Pollard

When I first purposed this a few weeks ago people were pretty shocked. The idea of not keeping a true fullback and only two total running backs seems very strange. Especially on a team that typically keeps four RBs.

But as they say, “you gotta rob Peter to pay Paul” and that means going short at RB. If Jamize Olawale was here, it would be a completely different story. Mike McCarthy likes FBs and Olawale fits the mold. But the Cowboys don’t have a great option to replace him (he opted out this season), they’ll probably use TEs in spot duty to cover the loss.

The Dallas Cowboys have been using Dalton Schultz as a fullback and will also lean on Zeke to do some lead blocking for Pollard in 21 looks this season. And if all else fails, they have Sewo Olonilua waiting in the wings.
