Dallas Cowboys undrafted rookie wide receiver Dennis Houston has been working with the first-team offense all week according to Kevin Patra of NFL.com.

Houston is 6'1/198 and ran a 4.49 forty at his Pro Day before going undrafted out of Western Illinois. He was All-Missouri Valley first-team last season with a 90-1,015-6 line across 11 games. He led the FCS in catches per game.

With Michael Gallup (knee) and James Washington (foot) out for a long period of time, it's next man up for the Cowboys and rookies Jalen Tolbert and Houston have been working with the ones behind CeeDee Lamb.  Noah Brown and Simi Fehoko are also in the mix.  "A lot of young guys have stepped up. Just to say one would be cheating the other," quarterback Dak Prescott said. "But obviously Dennis Houston and Tolbert, just to start off on who have been in there and taken more reps. You're asking 'hey, give us an X, give us a Z,' just coming in, just trying to play whatever position and be available to the offense. That's how you get on the field, doing as many things as you can and doing it at a high level. That's what these young guys are doing right now."

Whoever can win the jobs behind Lamb will at least be on the fantasy map in Dallas' offense.
