2. KaVontae Turpin, Wide Receiver
It feels funny writing “wide receiver” next to Turpin’s name because the Cowboys so rarely use him there. But, that is why he is on this list. Turpin has done well as a returner this season, and his explosiveness can be used on offense.
Turpin has yet to play more than 10 offensive snaps in any game this season. With a season-low, two snaps, in Week 6. The 26-year-old may be the fastest player on the team so it is weird to not see him have any usage on offense. After all, Turpin did lead the USFL in receiving yards this past season.
The Cowboys could throw him screen passes or use trick plays to get him the ball in space. He only has one carry this year and zero receptions. Now is the time for Kellen Moore to start incorporating him into the offense.
With Dak Prescott expected back in Week 7, that should help make the offense more dangerous and give Turpin even more room to operate. There is no knowing how good Turpin could be on offense unless Dallas starts giving him the ball.
