3. Cedrick Wilson, Wide Receiver, Miami Dolphins

Dallas pulled off a narrow win in Week 6 but once again, they had issues in the passing game. CeeDee Lamb was excellent, with more than 100 yards and Brandin Cooks had his best game of the season and scored his first touchdown for Dallas. However, their third wideout was a major issue. 

Michael Gallup finished with three receptions on 10 targets and had several drops, including one that should have been a touchdown.

Dallas needs a spark at WR3 and one player who could come in and help open up the offense right away would be Cedrick Wilson who is currently with the Miami Dolphins. Wilson was selected in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft out of Boise State but missed his rookie campaign due to an injury.

He then spent the next three seasons with Dallas and broke out in 2021 with 45 receptions for 602 yards and six touchdowns. He parlayed that success into a three-year deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2022 but since his arrival, the Dolphins have added Tyreek Hill and more recently, Chase Claypool.

That latest addition feels as though it could be what pushes Wilson out the door and Dallas would be an ideal landing spot for him. He already has a great rapport with Dak Prescott and even though he's going to need to learn the nuances of Mike McCarthy's play-calling, he also knows the head coach from their two years together.

Miami might also be willing to give him up for little in return, especially considering he has just five receptions for 68 yards on the season and didn't even see a single target this past week against Carolina.
