The Cowboys have chosen to go with a committee approach at wide receiver and tight end, hoping quantity can make up for the quality of the work Dez Bryant and Jason Witten put together for so long. Somehow the group has to make up for the 132 receptions, 1,398 yards, and 11 touchdowns Bryant and Witten combined for in 2017.
The story said seven padded practices into training camp is hardly enough time to make a conclusion, but the passing game so far has not had the juice it has had in the past with Bryant and Witten on the field. OC Scott Linehan admitted in the story it's a work in progress and the team is not where they want to be. Prescott was quoted as saying they are still trying to gain chemistry.
DAL WR Allen Hurns - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 1 at Carolina Panthers
The Cowboys receiving unit has a ton of question marks, but someone will benefit from the passing game and Allen Hurns is the best guess of the one who ends up being the No. 1 receiver. We use that term lightly as there really is no No. 1, but the veteran has shown signs in his career when healthy of carrying that load.
The matchup is pretty good for Week 1 as the Panthers pass defense struggled last season. But even with the favorable matchup, we don't expect much from Hurns or any other Cowboys receiver. Keep Hurns on the bench for Week 1.
