Fantasy managers were starting to panic a little bit on Schultz from Weeks 8-10 where he had two fantasy finishes outside the top-35 at the position. However, he's turned things around in the past two weeks and has come through in the advantageous situation with Cooper and Lamb both missing time. Schultz has seen a 16.9% target share over the past two weeks combined, but we have to assume that that will drop down if Cooper and Lamb both return to the active lineup this week. It's a tougher matchup for opposing TEs regardless with the Saints allowing just 5.2 fantasy points per game to the position too, so we need to at least exercise caution with Schultz in Week 13. He's still worth playing if all three WRs are active, but we need to downgrade him to more of a low-end TE1. If Cooper misses this week, we can at least feel comfortable starting Schultz as a mid-range/low-end TE1. We'll continue to update with more information as it becomes available.
