Dalton Schultz and Cole Kmet have had similar off-season paths. Both were top 12 fantasy options at the tight end position last year, but they have seen their standing in the target tree diminished with the addition of talented receivers. The arrival of Stefon Diggs will make it difficult for Schultz to repeat his TE11 showing last year. Most of Schultz's efficiency numbers from last season do state that he was playing a bit over his head. Among 51 qualifying tight ends, he ranked 15th in target share, 11th in receiving yards per game, 14th in yards per route run, and 11th in first downs per route run (per Fantasy Points Data). Schultz is likely a high-end TE2 this season that returns some TE1 weeks.

Dalton Schultz inks three-year deal with Texans

The Houston Texans and TE Dalton Schultz have reached terms on a three-year, $36 million deal ($23.5 million guaranteed) to keep the veteran TE paired with QB C.J. Stroud.

Fantasy Impact

With Stroud's emergence, the name of the game for Houston is to build around him, and that includes giving him weapons to work with. Schultz was productive during his years with Dallas, and after he didn't have the strongest market in 2023, his one-year deal with Houston proved to be worth it, turning into a $12 million-per-year contract. He finished 2023 as the half-PPR TE11.
