2024 RTSports Outlook

Tolbert got some more chances his second season but still was a spot play for the Cowboys. He had 22 receptions for 268 yards and two touchdowns. Tolbert had multiple receptions eight of 17 games. He has a chance to play a little bigger role this season, maybe serving as the No. 3 receiver for the Cowboys. Tolbert is a great athlete that can do a little bit of everything at receiver. He will drop some passes, though, and lacks a little consistency.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Tolbert has a lot to compete with for targets, but could get a few more this year in a more expanded role. But even with that said, he will be hard for fantasy teams to trust. He will be hit or miss on a weekly basis. Tolbert might get around 35 receptions for 450 yards and a few scores.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb's absence at voluntary organized team activities this offseason has opened up opportunities for the team's young receivers such as Jalen Tolbert, a third-round pick in 2022. Tolbert has the chance to take the No. 3 role behind Lamb and Brandin Cooks this year after the Cowboys released Michael Gallup in the offseason and didn't address the position with a known commodity in free agency or early in the draft. The 25-year-old had only 22 catches for 268 yards and two touchdowns last year, but he showed improvement from his rookie season in which he caught just two passes for 12 yards and was inactive for nine games. Tolbert is heading into the 2024 season with more confidence and more trust from quarterback Dak Prescott, which could make him a sleeper to target late in deeper fantasy leagues.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Jalen Tolbert looks like he has added muscle this offseason, according to Nick Harris of The 25-year-old is expected to have a more significant role behind CeeDee Lamb and Brandin Cooks this season, and his added bulk could help him take a step forward. After catching just two passes in just eight games as a third-round rookie in 2022, Tolbert caught 22 passes for 268 yards and two scores in 2023. After the team moved on from Michael Gallup this offseason, his path to the WR3 role is more clear. It's also worth noting the Cowboys will have to replace 67 targets vacated by Tony Pollard after he signed with the Tennessee Titans at the start of free agency, so there could be more targets up for grabs in the short and intermediate areas of the field for Tolbert.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Jalen Tolbert, who worked as the team's No. 4 wideout in his second season in 2023, is expected to have a bigger role in 2024 alongside CeeDee Lamb and veteran Brandin Cooks. Tolbert essentially split offensive snaps with Michael Gallup last year, but Gallup is now in Las Vegas. In 17 regular-season games (six starts) last year, Tolbert caught 22 of his 36 targets for 268 yards and two touchdowns after recording just two receptions in his rookie campaign in 2022. The 25-year-old former third-round pick in the 2022 NFL draft out of South Alabama won't necessarily be worth drafting in standard-sized fantasy leagues this fall, but if Lamb or Cooks go down with an injury at any point, Tolbert would become a popular waiver-wire pickup.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Jalen Tolbert scored a touchdown in a Week 18 win over the Washington Commanders. Tolbert was only targeted three times but make two catches for eight yards including a three-yard touchdown pass from Dak Prescott to open the scoring in the first quarter and give the Cowboys a 7-0 lead. Tolbert showed some flashes this season but played mostly in a bit role on offense, putting up a total of 22 catches for 268 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Jalen Tolbert made two catches in a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins. One of Tolbert's catches was a big play for a 45 yard gain, with the other a much more pedestrian six-yard gain. It gave him two catches on two targets for 51 yards total, leaving him in second place on the team for receiving yards on a day that any Cowboy not named CeeDee Lamb struggled to do anything offensively. Tolbert has had some best ball league value this season, but has been nowhere near consistent enough to have any standard league value. That's unlikely to change in Week 17 when the Cowboys play a Saturday game against the Detroit Lions.
