More Dallas Cowboys offense

Receiver (6) Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown, Simi Fehoko

These are the clear favorites to make the WR squad. Cooper, Gallup, and Lamb are locks and will likely form the top pass catching unit in the NFL this year. Making the team as well is Cedrick Wilson. He’s expensive for a WR4 but he can effectively back up all three starting positions so his value is greater than your typical WR4. If any of the top three goes down, he’s the replacement in the lineup.

Noah Brown is one of the best blocking WRs in the game and his ability to do it on the frontside, backside, and on the move, make him a clear asset to the offense. Finally, we have the rookie Simi Fehoko. Simi is raw so his contributions will be limited to a deep field stretcher.

Tight End (3) Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz, Sean McKeon

Blake Jarwin is a financial lock. Some are saying Jarwin might be on the chopping block if he doesn’t prove he’s worth his new deal, but his contract is cost prohibitive and cutting him would be more expensive than keeping him.

Some also want to say the TE1 job is Dalton Schultz’s to lose but the only way Schultz bumps Jarwin is if Jarwin isn’t healthy. Together the two TEs set Dallas up pretty nicely at the tight end position for 2021 and since the Cowboys are again expected to play primarily 11 personnel, two is plenty.

Dallas will surely keep an extra TE for depth and short yardage situations and the guy who has the inside track is second year pro, Sean McKeon. Jeremy Sprinkle is a viable challenger but he’s going to have to significantly outperform McKeon to bump him.
