2019 Fantasy Outlook
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.

Notches first pick of 2019

Awuzie recorded six total tackles (five solo), a pass breakup and an interception over 70 defensive snaps in Sunday's prime-time loss to New Orleans.
ANALYSIS
Awuzie's lone interception Sunday already matches the career high he set in 2017 and matched in 2018. The 24-year-old has enjoyed a starting role in Dallas' secondary dating back to the beginning of the 2018 campaign and figures to continue operating in that role for the foreseeable future.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
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.
