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.

Comes on strong in second season

January 19, 2019
Awuzie finished the regular season with 71 tackles, one interception on 11 passes defended, and one forced fumble in 15 games.
ANALYSIS
He missed one contest with an ankle injury, but otherwise Awuzie took a huge step forward in his second NFL campaign. The 2017 second-round pick really came on in the second half as teams shied away from throwing at Byron Jones, giving the Cowboys two young starting cornerbacks that can make life difficult for opposition receivers with their length and physicality heading into 2019.

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.
