RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Lucky Whitehead.

2016

An undrafted rookie free agent out of Florida Atlantic last year, Whitehead found a role with the Cowboys as their primary kickoff returner while also getting the occasional touch on offense as an option on bubble screens and jet sweeps. While he flashed some occasional burst, including two kick returns of 40-plus yards, Whitehead wasn't so impressive in the role that his job heading into 2016 is secure. He'll need to show some development to retain the Cowboys' primary returner job, much less earn more offensive snaps on a crowded WR depth chart.

2015

Whitehead will compete for a role as a depth wide receiver and return man for the Cowboys as a UDFA, but may need to begin his career on the practice squad
