WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Jamize Olawale | Free Agent FB

The Cowboys release Jamize Olawale.

Olawale opted out of last season, and now he'll be free to sign with another team. The versatile fullback can also contribute on special teams.

Jamize Olawale is opting out of the 2020 season.

Olawale is a versatile fullback and a solid lead blocker for Ezekiel Elliott, and Mike McCarthy was likely going to utilize him again this season on offense. The opt-out deadline is approaching, but we probably haven't seen the end of players deciding against playing during this COVID-impacted season.

The Cowboys picked up Jamize Olawale's team option.

Olawale is a versatile player that contributes on special teams, but this is notable news for Dallas from a real-life perspective and not critical from a fantasy football perspective, though perhaps new head coach Mike McCarthy will want to get him more involved toward the goal line in particular.

Jamize Olawale is re-signing with the Cowboys, according to Ian Rapoport.

Olawale was acquired in a trade with the Raiders last offseason, and he will stick around for another year in Dallas after recording two touches in 2018. Turning 30 next month, Olawale's main responsibility will be blocking for Ezekiel Elliott.

Jamize Olawale catches one pass against the Redskins.

Olawale gained ten yards on his lone reception in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving win. Dallas' fullback isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Jamize Olawale catches one pass for three yards in Week 6.

Dallas' fullback is not on the fantasy radar at the moment.

The Cowboys are trading for fullback Jamize Olawale, according to Ian Rapoport.

Olawale spent each of his six NFL seasons with the Raiders after going undrafted in 2012, but he was previously on Dallas' practice squad in 2012. The Raiders signed former Cowboys fullback Keith Smith in free agency, so the two teams are basically switching fullbacks this season. Olawale has more H-back qualities than Smith, so perhaps the Cowboys will get him involved on offense as a receiver this season. However, he isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment.

Jamize Olawale gets three touches in Week 13.

Olawale had one carry for nine yards along with two reception for 14 yards. He'll chip in with some touches here and there, but Olawale isn't a fantasy option.

Jamize Olawale gets involved in blowout loss.

Olawale rushed three times for 16 yards and caught two passes for six yards. The fullback has just 12 touches this season, so he isn't a fantasy option.

Jamize Olawale scores in Week 8.

Olawale scored on the opening drive for the Raiders on a goal line carry. Overall, he had two carries for three yards and the score. He's a very good and versatile fullback, but Olawale is off the fantasy radar.

Olawale catches 75-yard touchdown on Monday Night Football.

You don't see that often. Olawale got wide open as he ran right by Texans' cornerback Jonathan Joseph, who appeared to have been peaking in the backfield. Olawale had three catches for 90 yards and the touchdown. He also got two goal line carries for -3 yards. Olawale isn't a fantasy option as the Raiders' fullback.
