Now that the Cowboys are without Amari Cooper, they really need a wide receiver to step up in his absence. It appears a potential replacement option is emerging. 

Per a report, the Cowboys' fifth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft is getting first-team reps this week. That player just so happens to be wideout Simi Fehoko.

Fehoko is getting first-team reps across from CeeDee Lamb. If he impresses, he could be a starter by the time the 2022 season rolls around. 

“Being the bigger, taller and I guess heavier receiver to be able to have that blend of speed I feel like adding that with learning from the route runner from [Noah Brown] or CeeDee, I feel like it’s only just going to get better,” Fehoko said, via the team’s website. “I feel like that is something I bring to the table.”

Fehoko already has a strong relationship with Dak Prescott. He stayed in Dallas this off-season to workout with the veteran quarterback. 

With a year of experience under his belt and now getting first-team reps, Fehoko could be in line for a breakout season. 

The Cowboys open the 2022 campaign on Sept. 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
