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 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.

Dec 28, 2023 7:24 PM EST


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.

Dec 24, 2023 8:11 PM EST


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.

Dec 21, 2023 9:30 PM EST


Jake Ferguson Catches Six Passes In Week 15

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made six catches in a Week 15 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Ferguson was targeted eight times, making the six catches for 44 yards. It wasn't a good game for the Cowboys offense as a whole, but Ferguson was able to do a good job with his opportunities and put up a decent fantasy performance. He and the Cowboys should do better in Week 16 against the Miami Dolphins on the road.

Dec 17, 2023 8:07 PM EST


Jake Ferguson A Good Week 15 Option

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson is a solid option in Week 15 lineups despite a tough matchup against the Buffalo Bills. Ferguson has put up two weeks in a row of top-10 finishes at his position, posting 27 fantasy points combined across the two weeks. The Bills defense is ninth against opposing tight ends, but Ferguson has shown to be more than solid enough to deal with better defenses. He's a TE1 option with touchdown upside.

Dec 14, 2023 12:06 PM EST


Jake Ferguson Makes Five Grabs In Week 14

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made five catches in a Week 14 win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Ferguson led the team in receiving yards with 72, making his five catches on eight targets, including a big gain of 32 yards. Ferguson should remain a high-floor TE1 when the Cowboys take on the Bills in Week 15.

Dec 11, 2023 1:04 AM EST


Jake Ferguson Has A Good Matchup In Week 14

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson has a good matchup in a Week 14 divisional matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Ferguson has been the fantasy TE7 this season and gets to go up against an Eagles defense that has allowed the third-most touchdowns to tight ends and the 10th most fantasy points to the position. In what should be a high-scoring but close game, Ferguson is a top-10 fantasy option at the tight end position and can be started in most formats.

Dec 7, 2023 5:45 PM EST


Jake Ferguson Has A Big Game In Week 13

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson had a big game in a Week 13 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Ferguson was targeted eight times, making six catches for 77 yards and a touchdown. His score came on a 12-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott in the fourth quarter that gave the Cowboys the lead for good. Ferguson had a few down weeks recently, but this is almost sure to be another TE1 week, and he should be in those ranks more often than not going forward.

Dec 1, 2023 12:07 AM EST


Jake Ferguson Looks To Get Back On Track In Week 13

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson will look to get back into the TE1 ranks in a Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Ferguson was a top-10 fantasy tight end in Weeks 8, 9, and 10, but dipped to a TE21 and TE24 finish in the past two weeks. The Seahawks are just about average against opposing tight ends, so this could be a chance for Ferguson to see a few more targets and get a few more yards going. He's gone two games without a touchdown after scoring in three in a row, so a return to the end zone would be a welcome sight.

Jake Ferguson Makes Just One Catch On Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson made just one catch in a Thanksgiving Week 12 win over the Washington Commanders. He was targeted three times but was only able to come down with the one catch for 35 yards. It was a great game for the Cowboys offense, but there were no huge individual receiving performances, as quarterback Dak Prescott spread the ball around to 10 different receivers. Ferguson is likely to do a bit more next week when the Cowboys face the Seahawks for another Thursday game.

Nov 23, 2023 11:04 PM EST


Jake Ferguson Looks For A Bounce Back In Week 12

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson had three straight TE1 finishes before taking a step back in Week 11. He'll look to get back to the top-12 ranks in a Week 12 game against the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving. Ferguson ended up with just five fantasy points in a TE21 game in Week 11, but the Cowboys did not really need to throw the ball much in that one, as the defense and running game took care of things pretty well. This matchup could end up with another dominant Cowboys defensive performance, but on the other side of the ball, the Commanders defense struggles through the air and should give all of the Cowboys pass catchers plenty of chances to make plays. Ferguson is a low-end TE1 with touchdown upside.

Jake Ferguson Loses Touchdown Streak Against Carolina

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson caught three passes for 32 yards but failed to find the end zone for the first time since Week 6. It was a disappointing output as fantasy managers have come to rely on a touchdown from the young tight end. However, Dak Prescott did not light up the box score as he had been doing in recent weeks. Just 204 total passing yards were up for grabs for receivers. Dallas took the opportunity to try and get their running game on track. Ferguson will be right back in the TE1 conversation when the Cowboys host the Commanders on Thanksgiving.

Nov 20, 2023 9:25 AM EST


Jake Ferguson A Solid Starter For Week 11

Dallas Cowboys tight end Jake Ferguson is a solid starting option in most leagues in a Week 11 game against the Carolina Panthers. Ferguson has scored double digit fantasy points and been a fantasy TE1 for three weeks in a row, finishing as the overall TE10 once and the TE5 twice. With the Cowboys passing game absolutely on fire right now and a decent matchup against the Panthers defense, Ferguson is a solid TE1 option with touchdown upside.
