Cowboys TE Blake Jarwin: 2020 Fantasy Football Steal?

Ok, . It's time to take in some hype.

The 25 year old had a breakout game of sorts back during the finale, catching 7 balls for 119 yards and three touchdowns. Yes, it was against the Giants in a “meaningless” game, but nothing about Jarwin's performance felt meaningless. It felt like foreshadowing.

Fast forward a few months and is returning to the team. Not to play in the rumored limited role, of course, but to be the starting tight end. Sorry, Blake Jarwin hype train, you'll have to wait another year.

Well here we are.

Jarwin and have a clear connection, one he couldn't find with Witten during the . Even in limited snaps, Jarwin caught three touchdowns a year ago, and was clearly the team's best option at the position after the catch.

He offers athletic upside, and could be the seam threat that Prescott really hasn't had during his career.

According to's Evan Silva, Jarwin is being quite under-drafted relative to his potential value. And with Witten, who was targeted about double the times that Jarwin was in 2019 gone, 2020 should be Jarwin's chance to shine.

Cowboys fans have been accused of overrating their players in the past, and like most fanbases this tends to be true. But the Blake Jarwin hype is both real and justified heading into the . I'd own as many Jarwin shares as I can, especially if I missed out on the top flight tight ends (Travis Kelce, George Kittle, etc.) earlier in my fantasy draft.

Oh, and in the world of real football: Blake Jarwin is the unquestioned starting tight end with little but question marks behind him on the . He's going to play and play a lot.

Something I'm sure quarterback Dak Prescott is looking forward to seeing.

I might take Blake as my #2 TE but “fantasy steal”? Do you realize who the Top 3 WRs are on the team? He will benefit from Whitten being gone (really sorry to see that, pretty much every star who tries “1 more year” ends his career disappointed in the move) but not he would not be my 1st TE off the board.

Have to agree with Chuck on this one as Jarwin just doesn’t have big enuf body work for that much hype. But with that said i like what I’ve seen so far and he has some burst to him and ability to make lg chunk plays. Witten did stay one yr too long but have say wasn’t too mad bout that. One best TE of all time and a great teammate who represented the star with class.
