A VG and fun read from Derek Brown. The Schultz video view on his new outlook will bring a smile to LOL
Aging RBs & middle-round RB rookies like Rachaad White & Tyler Allgeier I’m moving them in dynasty for WRs. Miles Sanders Jamaal Williams Tony Pollard D’Onta Foreman David Montgomery Devin Singletary Kareem Hunt & a ton more…someone will destroy your hopes Invest in WRs
Dalton Schultz (TE – HOU)
Since Dallas looked to be moving on from Dalton Schultz this offseason, the hope and prayer for Schultz are that he would land with Kellen Moore in Los Angeles. This would allow him to hop from one above-average offense to another with the upside to supplant Gerald Everett
on the roster or at least as the every-down option. Sadly this didn’t happen, and Schultz landed in the fantasy black hole that resides in Houston, Texas.
Schultz should still be viewed as a full-time player with only Teagan Outoriano, Brevin Jordan
, and Mason Schreck behind him on the tight-end depth chart. Schultz will check the playing time box this season that we covet with tight ends after finishing tenth in route per dropback rate last year, but his upside to crest the top 12 fantasy tight ends in 2023 and remain a top-15 dynasty tight end is in question. Last year he ranked 23rd in PFF receiving grade and 18th in yards per route run (minimum 20 targets per PFF) as the TE9 in fantasy points per game.
Houston’s passing rate with a rookie quarterback incoming will likely be depressed to league average at best, which will hinder his target upside. Schultz has been a mediocre target earner for most of his career, finishing 16th or lower in target per route run rate in two of the last three seasons. The Texans don’t project to be a high-scoring offense, so we are left with a fantasy volume bet on a one-year deal. I’d be shipping Schultz off your roster as part of a larger deal as soon as possible.
