Matthew Berry, ESPN's top fantasy football analyst, does not think very highly of the Cowboys' current collection of wide receivers.

Frisco police arrested Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams early Saturday morning on a charge of public intoxication (police found his Lamborghini crashed into a light pole). Williams might lose his job, but Berry's assessment existed before that incident transpired.

Here's how Berry responded when a fan asked him if the Cowboys have the worst receiving corps in the league on Twitter.

As a fantasy analyst, Berry's main focus is statistical productivity. But the talent of the players also factors into his analysis. A short while later on Twitter, he stood by his take. Here was his response to a fan who claimed the Bills have the worst pass-catching unit.

And when another fan claimed the Jets, 49ers, Dolphins, and Bills roster worse receiving corps, this was Berry's response.

This offseason, owner and general manager Jerry Jones released Dez Bryant and traded Ryan Switzer to the Oakland Raiders.

Meanwhile, veteran tight end Jason Witten decided to retire.

To replace those pieces, the front office signed wide receivers Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson in free agency. The franchise also acquired wideout Tavon Austin in a trade from the Los Angeles Rams.

At the 2018 NFL Draft, the team selected wide receivers Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson.

The Cowboys signed Gallup to a four-year contract Monday, putting the team's 2018 NFL Draft class under contract for the upcoming season.

Dallas Cowboys third round pick Michael Gallup is not superstitious about the number 13 at rookie minicamp Friday at the Star in Frisco.
