Awuzie notched 10 solo tackles during Sunday's 34-31 win over the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
Awuzie logged his best fantasy performance of the season during Week 17's crucial win, while playing 100 percent of defensive snaps for the first time since Week 11. The starting cornerback will look to capitalize on opportunities Week 18 against the Browns and quarterback Baker Mayfield, who has thrown seven interceptions in his last three appearances.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2018
2017
Awuzie is coming off his best statistical season in the NFL, recording career highs with 79 tackles and 14 passes defended while shaving a few points off the QB rating he allowed in 2018. He's still prone to the occasional big play, however, and there remains chatter around the Cowboys about a switch to safety, where his athleticism might be better suited to attacking the ball rather than chasing after receivers. With Byron Jones gone, though, the team likely needs him more at corner, and the team's wholesale coaching changes on the defensive side of the ball could allow Awuzie to be more aggressive than he was under conservative coordinator Rod Marinelli. With free agency looming next offseason, Awuzie will be looking for a breakout - and a big payday - of his own.
The Colorado product took a step forward in the second half of his second NFL campaign, finishing the year with an impressive 71 tackles and 11 passes defended while snagging his second career interception. Much like Byron Jones opposite him, Awuzie's length and athleticism makes him a great fit for secondary coach Kris Richard's attacking philosophy, and the duo figure to be a big part of whatever success the Cowboys defense has this season.
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.
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.
