Cowboys | Rico Gathers added weight

Sat, 09 Jun 2018 19:57:27 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers said he bulked up to 282 pounds in order to be more effective as a blocker. "Now coming off, I'm delivering the blow," Gathers said. "I'm delivering the shot."

Fantasy Tip: With Jason Witten retiring, this is Gathers' best chance to carve out a role in the Dallas offense. If you have been stashing him in a keeper league, continue to sit tight and see what happens.

Cowboys | Rico Gathers could start?

Sun, 20 May 2018 12:42:19 -0700

Dallas Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is a candidate to step up as the team's starting tight end, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal.

Fantasy Tip: Due in part to Gathers' lack of football experience, Geoff Swaim will probably be the favorite to earn the most snaps at tight end in Dallas. But make no mistake about it, Gathers is the one Cowboys' pass-catcher who can be considered a matchup nightmare. If he can stay healthy this season - multiple head injuries sidelined him last year - he could make a strong case to win a job during the preseason.
