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.

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.

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.
