Dalton Schultz's latest injury update provides some good news as it looks like he will play in the Dallas Cowboys' Week 5 matchup against the New York Giants. Schultz suffered a bruised thigh in a loss to the Cleveland Browns last week, but he will be ready to go.

Schultz has been a rising player at tight end this year and a go-to option for quarterback Dak Prescott. Fantasy managers will be glad to hear he'll be out there playing again this week.

Dalton Schultz Fantasy Outlook

The third-year player out of Stanford has been one of the most popular waiver wire pickups in fantasy football this year and for good reason. He has stepped up and performed well as the starting tight end for the Cowboys after Blake Jarwin went down Week 1 with an ACL injury.

Schultz has been targeted at least six times in each of the last three games and has racked up 219 receiving yards on 18 receptions this season and scored 2 touchdowns as well. He has become a legitimate low-end TE1 in fantasy football as part of one of the most high-scoring offenses in the NFL.

As long as the Cowboys' offense keeps performing as it has been and Prescott continues to spread the ball around, there is no reason to believe Schultz can't keep up this type of production. He has the potential to be an every-week starter at the tight end position and at least carries FLEX consideration each week moving forward.

Schultz checks in as the No. 7 tight end in our Week 5 fantasy football rankings and faces a tough Giants' defense that has yet to give up more than 23 yards receiving to any tight end this season. However, Schultz has proven to be a solid contributor on this offense and that should continue in this matchup.
