1. Who wins the WR4 job?

The WR4 job between second-year player Jalen Tolbert and third-year player Simi Fehoko will be an ongoing battle in Training Camp.

With Lamb, Gallup, and Cooks locked into the top three spots, Tolbert and Fehoko are looking to lock up the fourth wide receiver spot in Dallas' offense. Both young wide receivers will have a chance to win the WR4 job.

Tolbert was non-existent in his rookie season in Dallas. After the Cowboys selected him in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, he finished the year with just two catches for 12 yards in eight games. The 24-year-old wideout was also a healthy scratch in nine games.

On the other hand, Fehoko hasn't seen much playing time in his first two seasons after the Cowboys selected him in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. He saw seven snaps in his rookie season in 2021 and 36 snaps in 2022 before landing on the injured reserve with a shoulder injury. He has three catches for 24 yards in his career.

However, both players were reportedly impressive in minicamp last month. Head coach Mike McCarthy sees a second-year jump from Tolbert, while Fehoko got first-team reps during OTAs last month.

It'll be interesting to see which young receiver wins the WR4 job in Dallas. Tolbert and Fehoko have both worked hard this offseason to hopefully take that next step in their games.
