The wide receiver position is the constant conversation for Cowboys camp in 2022. In the middle of it is new receiver KaVontae Turpin, whose prowess as a receiver may be overshadowed by his expertise as a returner. Special teams coordinator John Fassel sees a big role for Turpin in 2022.

Meanwhile young receiver Simi Fehoko has been a pleasant surprise at camp, with highlights and reliable tendencies during the early goings. Even still, with young players showing out, the position is a question mark with James Washington and Michael Gallup out for the start of the season.

Considering the Cowboys went out and signed linebacker Anthony Barr to boost that group with veteran talent, could the same come for receiver or will Dallas stick to their homegrown players to cover for those missing early in the season?

On the other side of the coin, the young receivers in Dallas have helped numb the pain about the injuries to key weapons and the loss of Amari Cooper. Simi Fehoko is the main example of a player turning heads at this year’s camp, but will he turn it into success during the season?

While Fehoko has been a star in camp, will he be the receiver across from CeeDee Lamb once the season begins? With James Washington and Michael Gallup out for the start of the season, there’s a strong debate over if it’ll be a veteran role player or a young, suring talent that will be the starting receiver for Week 1.

Barr came to Dallas and noted the team as a contender being one of his main reasons to join alongside his relation with the staff. Interesting enough, he has actually been called out by the Cowboys head coach.

Dating back to 2017 on a hit that injured Aaron Rodgers, the former Packers coach called out the Minnesota linebacker. Now, the two join in arms.

There’s always a story behind an athlete’s number, and rookie receiver Jalen Tolbert is no exception to this. While Tolbert wore No. 8 at South Alabama, it’s a number players don’t touch considering the respect towards Troy Aikman.

The outlook for Dallas is a stark contrast from what it was during the 2021 training camp. Expectations have slowly decreased as predictions begin to roll in that don’t have the Cowboys taking the NFC East in back-to-back years.

With that change, Dallas could use it as fuel to turn the slight underdog status  into a statement year for the team and break the curse of a repeat champion in the division.
