Cowboys | Gavin Escobar on the bubble

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 22:10:57 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar is not considered a lock to make the 53-man roster, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar, a former second-round pick, has never delivered on his draft position, and it looks as though he may be edged out for a roster spot. Odds are someone would take a look at him given his physical credentials (6-foot-6, 260 pounds), but he's of no interest for fantasy owners.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar avoids PUP

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 08:55:56 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') was not placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: With Jason Witten aging, Escobar could have a chance to contribute. He's a watch-list player in fantasy.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar should be ready

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:15:15 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') is expected to be ready for the regular season, according to owner Jerry Jones. Escobar underwent surgery last December to repair a torn Achilles' tendon.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar will back up Jason Witten as long as Witten is healthy. He could steal a few touchdowns over the course of the season, but he can still be avoided in traditional leagues.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar likely headed to PUP list

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 06:11:07 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') is expected to begin the season on the PUP list after suffering a torn right Achilles' tendon in Week 15 last year.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has the size (6-foot-6, 245 pounds) and hands to be a viable option in the passing game, but through his first three seasons, he's caught just 26 passes for 303 yards and seven touchdowns. At this point, he's completely off the fantasy radar given his injury and lack of past production.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar continues to rehab

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 19:16:12 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') continues to rehab from a torn Achilles' tendon suffered last December. His recovery could extend into the start of the 2016 regular season, as a timeline for his return is not yet known. He might begin the season on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Fantasy Tip: If Escobar is unable to play in Week 1, Jason Witten would likely have James Hanna as his backup, unless the team elects to go to free agency or the draft for more depth.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar could play more

Sat, 19 Sep 2015 10:42:54 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar could see increased playing time with WR Dez Bryant (foot) out, particularly in the red zone, according to ESPNDallas.com's Todd Archer.

Fantasy Tip: Terrance Williams, Jason Witten, Cole Beasley and others, including Escobar, will have to step up with Bryant sidelined for a while. Escobar ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is still a risky play on FantasyScore as he's not guaranteed enough playing time, even if he's a red zone threat.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar with solid preseason game

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 06:06:08 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar had five catches for 47 yards Thursday, Aug. 13, in the first preseason game. He had a game-high seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar isn't on the fantasy radar for now, but with Jason Witten advancing in age, he's a name to keep in mind during the season.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar to be used more?

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:01:40 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar could see more snaps as a pass-catcher this season, but he's still expected to see about the same amount of playing time as he did last season, according to ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar seeing more playing time

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 11:45:04 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar is moving closer to 50 percent of the offensive snaps as the team uses fewer three-wide receiver sets. Escobar had three catches for 65 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar remains the No. 2 tight end on the roster behind Jason Witten, but you should take notice that the Cowboys are using him more often. He'll remain cheap at FantasyScore if you're looking for a deep sleeper.

Cowboys | Tony Romo shines again

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 20:17:06 -0700

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo was 17-for-23 for 279 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 7 win over the New York Giants, and two touchdowns went to TE Gavin Escobar. "I'd have to say that may be (the) best game I've ever seen Tony Romo play," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "That was an outstanding game. He was pinpointing the ball, making the kind of plays and protecting the ball." Romo said his surgically repaired back felt fine during the game, and he needed a toradol shot before the game to help with his bruised ribs and sprained ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Romo's fine 2014 season continues, and he shouldn't slow much against the Washington Redskins in Week 8. Consider him a strong play once again in all fantasy football leagues.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar has career day

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 19:38:25 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar had career-highs with three receptions, 65 yard and two touchdowns in Week 7 against the New York Giants. It was his first multi-touchdown game.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar could be an attractive play in FantasyScore going forward, even with the presence of Jason Witten. That's three touchdowns over the past two games for Escobar.

Cowboys | Terrance Williams has No. 2 job locked down

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 15:55:39 -0700

Dallas Cowboys WR Terrance Williams has done everything asked of him in training camp as the No. 2 wide receiver opposite WR Dez Bryant. The No. 3 receiver position seems to be a committee with WR Cole Beasley as the leader among TE Gavin Escobar and WRs Dwayne Harris and Devin Street.

Fantasy Tip: Williams is a big-play threat, much like Bryant, in an offense that should see him gain a sizeable increase in targets. This could be a breakout year for Williams, and he'll surely have weeks where he could carry a lineup.

Cowboys | Gavin Escobar lining up as a WR

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 20:17:28 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar has often lined up out wide during training camp, and offensive play-caller Scott Linehan is experimenting with different ways to get him involved in the offense.

Fantasy Tip: Escobar has the size and pass-catching ability to make some noise in the red zone, and he has the overall physical tools to cause some matchup issues for opposing defenses. Keep an eye on him early in the season to see how involved he becomes in the offense.

Cowboys | Tight ends coach impressed with Gavin Escobar

Tue, 20 May 2014 13:30:42 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar has impressed tight ends coach Mike Pope. Pope praised Escobar's tremendous hands and ability to contort his body to make acrobatic catches. Escobar's fearlessness down the field has also caught Pope's attention.

Fantasy Tip: Watch Escobar on your waiver wire early in the season. He has the talent to be a fantasy starter but is blocked by Jason Witten. If Escobar sees time in the slot and red zone targets, he could enter flex territory.

Fri, 21 Feb 2014 13:44:40 -0800

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said TE Jason Witten will not lose playing time to TE Gavin Escobar in 2014. "Well, I don't know about that," Garrett said. "Witt's a great football player and has been for a long time, a Pro Bowler again last year. In my opinion, our opinion, the best tight end in football and has been for decades. Witt's certainly going to be a big part of what we do with our offensive football team. But that doesn't mean Gavin can't be more involved."
