Dallas Cowboys
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Awuzie battled injuries as a rookie that limited him to 10 games, but when he was on the field, he showed flashes of the coverage ability that made him a second-round pick in 2017, snagging his first career INT in Week 17 against the eventual Super Bowl champion Eagles. He's expected to line up as a starting outside corner opposite Byron Jones this year, and Awuzie could blossom under the tutelage of former Seahawks DB coach Kris Richard given his length, smarts and athleticism.

September 7, 2018
Awuzie (back) was a full participant at Friday's practice and is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Panthers despite being listed as questionable, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
ANALYSIS
Awuzie is trending towards playing in Sunday's regular-season opener and, if he does suit up, he's projected to line up opposite Byron Jones at cornerback. If Awuzie does sustain a setback and is forced to sit out, look for Jourdan Lewis to see an expanded role in the Cowboys' secondary.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A second round pick out of Colorado, Awuzie brings athleticism, versatility and an extremely high football IQ to a Cowboys secondary being rebuilt from the ground up. While he wasn't a turnover machine in college, Awuzie's ability to sniff out a play before it starts could put him in position for plenty of INTs once he's adjusted to the speed of the NFL.
