Could TE Dalton Schultz Be In Line For A Big Game Vs. The Giants?

    Heading into the , most expected they'd found a secret weapon at . Someone who could eat down the middle of the field while defenses worried about studded receiving corps and backfield the Cowboys boast.

    We just expected that guy to be , not .

    Since Jarwin went down with a season ending in the opener, Schultz has stepped in rather nicely. He's seen at least 6 targets in each of his three starts, including 10 in the Cowboys win against Atlanta back in week two.

    Schultz has proven to be a nice middle of the field threat for , as he's drawn linebackers in coverage and made the pay. Last week he was a key part of the near comeback, scoring a big touchdown and going for 72 yards on the day.

    The Giants defense has played better than you'd expect this season, but it's still a pretty weak unit. They rank 22nd in EPA/play and 28th in dropback EPA. Despite spending capital to stop the run, the Giants has not been up to par either, and could be in line for a big game on the ground.

    Surprisingly, the Giants weak linebacking unit has not allowed a touchdown reception to a tight end this year, but that could have more to do with opposing and success than anything else.

    Outside of the Giants don't have much defensively that can keep up with these Cowboys weapons, and my eyes are on both Dalton Schultz and to have big days this afternoon.

    Schultz has had the benefit of some pass heavy game scripts, though, so if the Cowboys get a lead early he could be phased out in the second half.
