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.

Awuzie (hamstring) was seen working out with trainers on the side during Wednesday's OTA session, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Awuzie appeared to pick up the hamstring injury last week, though the severity of the issue remains unclear. His ability to work out in any capacity Wednesday is a positive sign that he'll be operating at full strength by the time training camp arrives. Awuzie racked up 71 tackles and one interception in 15 games last season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
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.
