Jake Ferguson Impressing This Offseason

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson broke out as the team's starting tight end in 2023 with 71 catches for 761 yards and five touchdowns en route to his first Pro Bowl nod. "It's his consistency and his passion his energy," said head coach Mike McCarthy. "And, really, it's his growth as a football player. We talked a little bit about his weight, and I think he's done an outstanding job in his transition phase of it. He's having a great offseason." Ferguson has so far shown that he has the entire package the Cowboys are looking for on offense. Realistically, the 25-year-old third-year tight end could be quarterback Dak Prescott's No. 2 target behind receiver CeeDee Lamb in 2024. Ferguson led all TEs in targets inside the 20-yard line last year and should be considered a low-end TE1 in fantasy with the upside for more.

Jake Ferguson Feels Like He's Just Getting Started

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson caught 19 passes for 174 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie in 2022, but he enters the 2024 season as the team's top tight end after catching 71 passes for 761 yards and five touchdowns in 2023. "To me, I think I'm not even scratching my surface," Ferguson said. He has taken part in the Tight End University program led by Greg Olsen, George Kittle and Travis Kelce, and TEs coach Lunda Wells thinks Ferguson can go for 1,000 yards receiving. Ferguson is trying to add a little more bulk to his 252-pound frame this offseason to help him as a blocker. Not only does Ferguson have the skills to continue ascending, but he has great chemistry with quarterback Dak Prescott. There's uncertainty at the No. 3 receiver position behind CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks in Dallas, too, so Ferguson could take another step forward as a TE1 in 2024.

Jake Ferguson Scores Three Touchdowns In Wild-Card Weekend Loss

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson scored three times in a Wild Card Weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers. Ferguson was targeted 12 times, making 10 catches for 93 yards and scoring three times. His touchdowns came from 1, 7, and 14 yards out, but it wasn't enough for the Cowboys to make it past the first week of the playoffs. Ferguson turned into a high-floor TE1 this season, and barring unexpected changes on the Dallas offense, he should once again fill that role next season.

Jake Ferguson A Solid Option For Wild-Card Weekend

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson is a solid option in fantasy for a matchup against the Green Bay Packers on Wild Card Weekend. Ferguson developed into a legitimate fantasy asset this season, showing a high floor and occasional ceiling as well. He was a fantasy TE1 in nine games, finishing up with a TE9 performance in Week 18 after a pair of disappointing games the two weeks prior. He should maintain a high floor in the playoffs and has some touchdown upside in the first round.

Jake Ferguson Catches Six Passes In Week 18 Win

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made six catches in a Week 18 win over the Washington Commanders. Ferguson was targeted six times, making a catch on all six for 69 yards total.

Ferguson and the Cowboys will face the Green Bay Packers in Dallas next weekend for the first round of the NFL playoffs.

Jake Ferguson Has A Strong Matchup In Week 18

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson has a strong matchup in a Week 18 game against the Washington Commanders. Ferguson has had a strong season, essentially working as the second option in the passing game behind All-World wide receiver CeeDee Lamb. Ferguson has seen at least six targets in five games in a row and should be in for another target-heavy contest to wrap up the regular season. Ferguson is a mid-range TE1 with a strong floor.

Jake Ferguson Catches Four Passes In A Week 17 Win

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made four catches in a Week 17 win over the Detroit Lions. Ferguson was targeted six times, making the four catches for 33 yards with a long gain of nine. It was a floor game for Ferguson, who has developed into a weekly TE1 in this Cowboys offense, but there just wasn't much there for Cowboys pass catchers tonight behind CeeDee Lamb's 227 yards. Ferguson and the Cowboys will wrap up their regular season schedule in Week 18 against the Washington Commanders.

Jake Ferguson A Solid Option In Week 17

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson is a solid fantasy option in a Week 17 game against the Detroit Lions. Ferguson has developed a strong floor as essentially the WR2 in this offense behind CeeDee Lamb. Ferguson has seen exactly eight targets in each of his past four games, and should be in for a similar dose against a Lions defense that's been struggling to stop opposing passing games of late. He's an easy TE1 with top-five upside this week.

Jake Ferguson Grabs Four Passes In Week 16

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made four catches in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Ferguson was targeted eight times, making the four catches for 45 yards. The four catches left him second on the team behind CeeDee Lamb and the 45 yards were the third most behind Lamb and Jalen Tolbert. It wasn't a particularly good game for the Dallas offense, but Ferguson was at least able to put up a decent floor performance and should be in for a similar or slightly better showing next week when the Cowboys take on the Detroit Lions on Saturday.

Jake Ferguson A Strong Play In Week 16 Lineups

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson is a strong fantasy option in a Week 16 game against the Miami Dolphins. Ferguson has been the overall fantasy TE10 so far this season and has essentially been operating as the second option in the Cowboys passing game behind CeeDee Lamb. The Dolphins defense has been excellent against opposing passing games overall, but they've been just average against opposing tight ends. Ferguson has a chance to have a big game and as the tight end with the most red zone targets in the NFL, he always has touchdown upside.
