    Time to get FB Jamize Olawale More Involved Offensively?

    The are coming off arguably their best and most complete offensive performance of the season after playing the last week, but there is still quite a bit of improvement that can be made. The need to get more playmakers involved is apparent, which is why I think it's time to utilize 's unique skill set.

    I know many of you will argue that getting and going is a higher priority, and you wouldn't be wrong, but Jamize Olawale's playmaking ability could be a huge asset for and the . I know it sounds a little strange, but hang in there with me for little bit.

    As things stand right now, Olawale has only played 38 offensive snaps (10%) in 2018. That's the exact amount of offensive plays has played this year and he's missed the majority of the season. It's not exactly the kind of production I was expecting when the Cowboys decided to bring him aboard via with the earlier this .

    I don't know about you, but I was expecting Olawale to be more involved in the offensive . He is an excellent receiver out of the backfield and isn't too shabby as a runner either. But, we haven't seen him utilized in either fashion this season and I think that's an injustice that needs to be corrected.

    Now, I fully understand there are other offensive weapons ahead of him in the pecking order who need to see more targets, but I also really think he can make a difference maker, especially in the . That is where his strengths lie, not as a lead blocking fullback.

    Olawale was a bit of a Swiss Army knife during his time with the Oakland Raiders. He played a little , fullback, , and even a little . I really thought the Cowboys would take advantage of his versatility in the passing game, but as of yet they have failed to do so.

    I'd like to see the Dallas Cowboys and utilize Jamize Olawale's unique playmaking ability a little bit more on offense. I think they should try to utilize him like the use their fullback, . He's much more involved and has played a total of 263 offensive snaps (63.68%) this year.

    Juszczyk is a better lead blocking FB then Olawale, but that's not where he makes the most difference in the 49ers offense. He does it as a receiver and has already caught 17 passes for 227 yards and one touchdown. That's some pretty solid production from a position that is being phased out in the NFL.

    Now, just imagine the Cowboys offense getting similar production from Olawale and how that would help open up things for everybody else. It's not out of the realm of possibility because the 49ers offense and the Cowboys isn't all that dissimilar.

    Unfortunately, I think Jamize Olawale is pretty much an afterthought in the Cowboys offense right now. It's truly unfortunate because I think he can be a difference maker if given the opportunity. And with a division foe like the next on the schedule, what better time to unleash a new and unseen element of the offense?

    Do you think Jamize Olawale needs to be more involved offensively?

    I remember many years ago, Sean Payton unleashed the fullback against us when we played the Saints and he paved the way for a huge Saints win. Unfortunately, I don’t see our coaches getting that creative.
