Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News noted that Cowboys TE Rico Gathers "didn't get many chances" to catch passes during OTAs.
It seems Gathers, who beefed up to 282 pounds this offseason, has mostly worked as a blocking tight end. Gathers has been a trendy sleeper in fantasy leagues following the retirement of Jason Witten, but that enthusiasm might be wishful thinking. According to Hairopoulos, "it remains to be seen if the coaches believe he's absorbed the all-around duties of the position." The former Baylor power forward has yet to play a snap since arriving as a sixth-round pick in 2016. Jun 15 - 1:38 PM

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports second-year UDFA Blake Jarwin worked as Dallas' No. 1 tight end during OTAs and minicamp.

According to Mosher, Rico Gathers "barely gets any snaps in practice." Gathers hasn't played a single snap since being drafted in 2016 but flashed big-time potential last preseason only for the Cowboys to ask him to bulk up and improve his blocking this year. It sounds like Jarwin is the preferred pass-catching option, with Gathers competing for snaps as an in-line blocker. Jarwin showed some Jacob Tamme-esque traits as a walk-on at Oklahoma State.
