Blake Jarwin, TE
He caught 31 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns. This was all while playing more than 50 percent of offensive snaps in only one game. He did; however, manage to average 11.8 yards per reception and catch 75.6 percent of the passes thrown his way.
With Witten needing a new contract and the Cowboys looking to save some cap room, there is a real possibility that he is not staying with the team. This would mean that Jarwin would likely be re-signed as the starter.
Having Jarwin as the starter would mean that his snaps would increase a significant amount. That would mean more opportunities and more production. Because of that, we can see him eclipse 600 yards and five-plus touchdowns.
Having wide receiver Randall Cobb leave in free agency would also help Jarwin. It would surprise me to see both Witten and Cobb leaving. Regardless, Jarwin would only have a nice jump in production if Witten leaves.
That is unless new head coach, Mike McCarthy, decides to utilize a two-tight end formation more often. That would be an interesting look for the Cowboys.
Overall, Jarwin looks like he is ready for a bigger role with Dallas. Hopefully, he is given this opportunity by owner Jerry Jones and co. and then the Cowboys can reap their rewards. Blake Jarwin is primed for a step up next season.
