The Dallas Cowboys offense looked awful in Week 1. They scored one touchdown, ran for only 94 total yards, and passed for an abysmal 138 yards on 29 attempts. 


There is a laundry list of problems with the offense after one game, but it appears the biggest one is at the wide receiver position.


The receivers had trouble creating separation all day against the Carolina Panthers defense, and the only receiver who had more than 30 yards yesterday was Cole Beasley, who finished as the Cowboys leading receiver with seven receptions for 73 yards. Beasley has always been a mediocre third-option/slot receiver, at best, but now he looks to be the top receiving option for the Cowboys.

Deonte Thompson had three receptions for 25 yards, while Dallas' "big" offseason signing, Allen Hurns, only had one reception for 20 yards. Lastly, rookie wideout Michael Gallup had a single reception for nine yards in his debut.


Of course, this isn't all their fault. Dak Prescott has not looked good in a while and yesterday was another example. 

This is not an NFL-caliber wide receiving corps, but fantasy wise it's just downright awful.
