2023 Outlook
Depth Chart
The Cowboys let veteran tight end Dalton Schultz walk this offseason which has led to some real debate about the depth chart at the position. Jake Ferguson and Peyton Hendershot were on the team in 2022 and while both players had their moments, neither one really separated himself into being an obvious starting-caliber player going forward. This became particularly true once the Cowboys drafted a tight end - Michigan's Luke Schoonmaker - with a second-round pick in the NFL Draft.

This type of draft capital at a position like tight end typically means that a team intends for that player to be a contributor early in his career and that is likely to be the case for Schoonmaker. However, those contributions might end up being more important for the Cowboys offense as a whole than they are for Schoonmaker as an individual contributor. Schoonmaker was highly regarded for his blocking skills during the scouting process and his 6'5", 250-lb frame should allow him to continue to do that in the NFL. Schoonmaker is an athletic player who would seemingly have upside as a pass-catcher, but we just haven't seen that much as of yet. He caught just 52 total passes over his final two seasons at Michigan.

It's easy to look at Schoonmaker's profile and be enamored by the potential, but the reality is that rookie tight ends rarely produce for fantasy and oftentimes they end up not even securing a regular role in their offense until late in the season.

As of right now, it appears most likely that Ferguson will begin the season as the Cowboys' starter, with Schoonmaker and Hendershot battling for the TE2 spot on the depth chart. Schoonmaker is the player you'll want to draft if you're drafting purely for upside late, but if you're looking for day-one production and the player who will likely lead this group in overall numbers for the season, Ferguson is probably the best bet.
