From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Dec 9): If you're desperate at tight end, the Cowboys appear to be finally waking up to Jarwin's potential as a complementary target in their stocked pass offense.

Week 15: vs Los Angeles Rams - $5400

All TE vs LAR

FBG says: Tough matchup. Dallas' passing attack has seen its number bolstered by garbage time production in recent weeks, but on the whole, their metrics are as impressive as any team in the league. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys rank 1st in the league in passing yards, 1st in net yards per attempt, and 5th in total passing volume this season. At the top of the depth chart, Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup comprise one of the league's best one-two punches at wide receiver. Over the last month, Gallup has led the way with 36 targets, 22 receptions, and 375 receiving yards, but this is partially a product of the increased attention given to Cooper, who tops the charts across the board as Dallas' best receiver over the course of the entire season. Aside from the top two, Randall Cobb in the slot and Jason Witten at tight end make for a strong supporting cast as well. Behind one of the league's best offensive lines, Dak Prescott typically has plenty of time to distribute the ball to this talented group of receivers. The Los Angeles Rams' pass defense grades as one of the league's strongest units this season, especially since their acquisition of cornerback Jalen Ramsey. The Rams have defended one of the highest volume of pass attempts of any team in the league this season, and their impressive personnel has done an exceptional job limiting opposing offenses to just 5.6 net yards per attempt, the 5th-best mark in the league. The Rams' pass rush is one of the league's most imposing units, with Aaron Donald, Dante Fowler, Jr., and Clay Matthews combining for 28.5 sacks on the season. Donald alone is one of the league's biggest difference-makers in the trenches, and with strong edge rushers around him, this is one of the most productive pass rushes in the league. At linebacker, Cory Littleton's exceptional athleticism enables him to keep up with opposing linebackers and running backs in coverage as one of the league's best pass-stopping players at the second level. Lastly, in the secondary, the Rams field numerous top-end coverage defensive backs. Jalen Ramsey, Eric Weddle, Nickell Robey-Coleman, and Taylor Rapp all grade as above-average pass-defenders at their respective positions, to name a few. Overall, this defense lacks a clear weakness against the pass, and the Cowboys will have an uphill battle ahead of themselves in Week 15, trying to move the ball through the air.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 14 vs CHI (7 / 6 / 50 / 0 rec - 8 points, $4800)

Jarwin posted a season-high 50 yards against Chicago, adding a deep element to Jason Witten's possession game in Dallas' passing game. Jarwin hauled in a low grab on a deep out plus added a high point on third-and-long, both on Dallas' impressive long touchdown drive to open the game. Jarwin had another deep opportunity but was overthrown by Dak Prescott. Jarwin added two late-fourth quarter receptions to pad his stat line.

2019 Week 12 vs NE (4 / 3 / 17 / 0 rec - 3.2 points, $4500)

Jarwin saw a hearty four targets against the Patriots, tying his season high mark. Jarwin's most notable moment was fumbling after the catch on a hitch route but recovered to keep possession. Jarwin had no open field or downfield opportunities in the low-scoring matchup.

2019 Week 11 vs DET (2 / 2 / 38 / 0 rec - 4.8 points, $4500)

Jarwin saw only two targets against Detroit but turned both into quality plays. He turned upfield on a crossing route for 15 yards after the catch and added additional yardage again on a well-designed play-action reception in the closing minutes of Dallas' road win.

2019 Week 10 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec - 5 points, $4500)

Jarwin saw a season-high four targets against the Vikings. Dak Prescott found Jarwin rolling left down the sideline with the athletic tight end turning the catch upfield for 26 yards into field goal range. Jarwin added two quick out route receptions in the closing seconds as Dallas set up a hail mary attempt to potentially win the game.

2019 Week 9 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 42 / 1 rec - 10.7 points, $4500)

Jarwin saw a single target against the Giants but made the most of his opportunity. Dak Prescott broke the pocket and found Jarwin loose on the sideline. Jarwin burst to the end zone for a long yards-after-catch-infused touchdown. Jarwin has yet to post more than 50 yards in a game this season as the ancillary tight end but is one of more intriguing injury-away options with his fluid movement if Jason Witten were to miss time.

2019 Week 4 vs NO (3 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec - 6.4 points, $4500)

Jarwin has been one of the more active secondary tight ends in the NFL through the opening month and saw another promising three targets against New Orleans. Jarwin's main contribution was a perfect seam throw from Dak Prescott as Jarwin rumbled down to the goal line. Jarwin has shown big-play ability if his role increases with an absence by Jason Witten going forward.

2019 Week 3 vs MIA (3 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec - 0.8 points, $4500)

Jarwin saw three targets against Miami but his best chance for a big play - a wide open opportunity for 15+ yards - was one of Dak Prescott's least accurate throws of the game as the pair missed on the connection. Jarwin added a drop and was tackled short of the marker on third down with his lone reception in a non-descript effort.

2019 Week 2 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec - 2.7 points, $4500)

Jarwin is simmering as a secondary tight end offense for the Cowboys but flashed for a second consecutive week behind the short-range-centric Jason Witten. Jarwin corralled his lone target, a corner route, for a chunk gain against Washington. Jarwin offers more upside for impact plays if Jason Witten were to miss time.

2019 Week 1 vs NYG (3 / 3 / 39 / 1 rec - 11.4 points, $4000)

Jarwin was the secondary tight end to Jason Witten in terms of snaps (40% versus 66%) but Jarwin showed well down the seam for a back-shoulder touchdown as Dallas surged as a passing offense against the Giants. With Witten limited to short areas of the field, Jarwin offers a more well-rounded role to the position, notable for the upcoming weeks.
