TE Blake Jarwin - Dallas Cowboys
|6-5, 246||Born: 7-16-1994||College: Oklahoma State||Drafted: ---|
2019 Week 1 vs NYG (3 / 3 / 39 / 1 rec)
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.
2019 Week 2 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
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 3 vs MIA (3 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)
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 4 vs NO (3 / 3 / 49 / 0 rec)
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 9 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 42 / 1 rec)
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 10 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
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.
2018 Week 15 vs IND (7 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jarwin was the clear preferred option over Dalton Schultz for the second week in a row, collecting a promising seven targets in each game. Jarwin fought through contact for yards-after-the-catch converting a third down but dropped a third down floating pass in field goal range. Jarwin had two catches in clear garbage time and also dropped two more passes in his up-and-down performance.
2018 Week 17 vs NYG (8 / 7 / 119 / 3 rec)
Jarwin enjoyed a career day in the season finale against the Giants. With Geoff Swaim still out, Jarwin nearly totaled his yardage total for the previous 16 weeks combined in Week 17 alone. Jarwin dominated in the red zone with three scores, including one down the seam. Jarwin also fought through contact for a third-down conversion and a high-point grab among his notable receptions. Jarwin has shown stronger movement and hands in traffic than rookie Dalton Schultz this season, culminating in the this week's highlight performance which more than doubled Jarwin's previous high-yardage effort.
