Cowboys | James Hanna could have bigger role

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 19:16:48 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE James Hanna elected to return the team after entering unrestricted free agency in March. He hasn't been a major factor in the passing game in the past, but he is viewed as a solid blocker who is an underrated asset in the running game. With TE Gavin Escobar (Achilles') suffered a torn Achilles' in December, and a question mark for the season, Hanna could have a big role.

Fantasy Tip: Hanna could see pass-catching opportunities, not just blocking assignments, behind Witten if Escobar is forced to miss time into the regular season. But his fantasy value is limited unless Witten also goes down.

Cowboys | Dallas re-signs James Hanna

Fri, 11 Mar 2016 15:33:58 -0800

Free-agent TE James Hanna (Cowboys) re-signed with the Dallas Cowboys on Friday, March 11. According to a source, the contract is a three-year deal worth $8.25 million.

Fantasy Tip: Hanna, who was also being pursued by the San Diego Chargers, has transformed into a blocking specialist over his first four years in Dallas. He could be in line for a few more snaps in 2016 since Gavin Escobar tore his Achilles' in December, but his role figures to remain pretty modest behind Jason Witten. Hanna can be ignored in fantasy.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Friday, Nov. 15, that he knew TE Gavin Escobar would need time to develop as a blocker.

Escobar played at least 15 snaps in the first three games, but fewer than 10 snaps in five of the past seven outings.
