Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb skipped offseason workouts ahead of what’s currently a contract year. Just note: That could change at any moment. Considering potential new deals for Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons, The Athletic’s Saad Yousuf believes Lamb is the Cowboy “most likely” to get paid before training camp. Yousuf writes that the contract “framework” is already in place following Justin Jefferson’s extension.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb is skipping voluntary workouts and might hold out of mandatory work in June, according to The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. Lamb is entering the final year of his rookie deal and is rightfully looking for a big raise. He's coming off a massive 2023 season, posting a 135-1,749-12 line and leading all WRs in fantasy points. Lamb will undoubtedly get a new deal from the Cowboys, but we'll see how long it takes owner Jerry Jones to open up his wallet. For now, consider Lamb's short- and long-term fantasy value unaffected. He sits atop our redraft and dynasty WR rankings.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb became the fifth WR this season to record at least 200 receiving yards in a game in Week 17 vs. the Lions. The talented wideout ended Saturday’s contest with 13 catches, 227 yards, and a TD that amounted to 40.2 PPR points. Lamb trails only Tyreek Hill with four games of 30+ PPR points in 2023, second among WRs. This achievement just goes to highlight just how utterly dominant he’s been this year. Entering his age-25 season in 2024, Lamb is showing no signs of slowing down and should be thought of as one of the elite dynasty WRs.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott rebounded from a relative down week in the win at Carolina to hang 331 yards and 4 TD passes on the Commanders in Week 12. He did so while spreading the ball around more than usual. WR CeeDee Lamb led the way with 9 targets but posted just a 4-53-1 receiving line. WR Brandin Cooks snagged a 31-yard TD among his 4 receptions for 72 yards on 5 targets. The other two scores went to KaVontae Turpin from 34 yards out and RB Rico Dowdle on a 15-yard catch-and-run. The soft opponent certainly helped, but Prescott has now gone over 300 yards with 3+ TDs in four of his past five games. And his remaining schedule ranks third-best for QB scoring, with no truly worrisome spots. Prescott just might prove to be a league winner for 2023.

Cowboys WR Brandin Cooks exploded in Week 10, hauling in 9 of 10 targets for 173 receiving yards and a TD vs. the Giants. Sunday saw several Cowboys pass-catchers post great numbers, including WR CeeDee Lamb (11-151-1) and TE Jake Ferguson (4-26-1), but Cooks is the one that fantasy managers should be wary of chasing in the future. The 10 targets he saw on Sunday were his highest by far this season and mark only the second time in 2023 that Cooks has seen more than 4 in a single game. He and teammate Michael Gallup have essentially taken turns as the Cowboys' WR2 in terms of snap rate and route participation this year. It’s best to avoid chasing this performance if you’re looking for help on the waiver wire this week.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb racked up 191 yards on 11 receptions among 16 targets in Sunday's loss to the Eagles. He drew 36.4% of Prescott's total pass attempts in the game, tallied 37.9% of the team's receptions, and collected 51.1% of the receiving yards. That followed a 12-158-2 receiving line coming out of the Week 7 bye and gives Lamb three straight games with at least 117 receiving yards. If you were worried about Lamb at all after three straight outings of limited production weeks 3-5, he has clearly put that to rest.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb went off for 12 grabs, 158 yards, and 2 scores in Sunday’s win over the Rams. The first two figures set career highs. Lamb actually entered halftime with nearly 35 PPR points, as he overmatched a young LA secondary. Look for Lamb to continue rolling next Sunday at Philly.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb secured all 7 of his targets for 117 receiving yards in Week 6’s victory vs. the Chargers. After a pair of sub-50-yard performances, the talented wideout finished as the WR10 on the week in PPR with 18.7 points. His teammate Brandin Cooks also made good on his opportunities, catching 4 passes on as many targets with 36 yards and a TD in the contest. Not all was good for these Cowboys’ wideouts, however. Michael Gallup saw a team-leading 10 targets but only converted 3 receptions for 24 yards on Monday night. This is a player who’d led the team in receiving yards (167) and receptions (13) over the past three games entering Week 6, so Gallup’s flop was assuredly disappointing for fantasy managers who opted to stream him this week. Following their Week 7 bye, the Cowboys will take on the Rams.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb posted a team-leading 49 receiving yards on 4 catches in Week 5’s loss vs. the 49ers. TE Jake Ferguson posted a respectable 3-catch, 28-yard performance that’s passable in PPR scoring, but these Dallas pass-catchers were otherwise underwhelming on Sunday night. The errors forced by QB Dak Prescott (3 INTs) had a tangible impact on the outcome of this contest. Hopefully, this offense will collectively bounce back in Week 6 vs. the Chargers.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (rest, knee) returned to a full practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that he's good to go for Sunday night's showdown with the 49ers.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb did not practice on Wednesday. The team lists his official designation as "Not Injury Related - Rest" and "knee." We'll see whether this was more of a rest day or if the knee is really a concern heading into Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers. Check back tomorrow for an update on Lamb.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb went off for 11 catches and 143 yards against the Jets. The 11 catches tied a career high. Top CB Sauce Gardner didn’t shadow him, and Dallas was wise to switch up Lamb’s alignment. We’ll see if Brandin Cooks (knee) misses another week, but regardless, Lamb will retain a top-5 ceiling for the road ahead. Next up is a matchup with Arizona.

Cowboys WR Brandin Cooks (knee) did not practice all week. He’s listed as questionable, and owner Jerry Jones labeled him a game-time decision for Sunday’s tilt with the Jets. But it’s safe to assume that Cooks won’t be anywhere close to 100% if he suits up. Keep him on fantasy benches this week. Cooks' absence would leave extra targets for WR CeeDee Lamb, WR Michael Gallup, and TE Jake Ferguson, among others.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught all 4 of his targets for 77 yards in Sunday night’s Week 1 win vs. the Giants. No other Dallas offensive player caught more than 2 passes. The Pro Bowl wideout saw a red zone target sail over his head in the second quarter but otherwise didn’t have much involvement in the blowout victory. Fantasy managers hoping for a bigger game from Lamb are assuredly disappointed, but the early blocked FG TD and a 22-yard INT return for a TD in the first half made it so that Dallas didn’t have to push very hard to earn the W. Hopefully, next week’s contest vs. the Jets can be a little bit closer. An intriguing item to remember is that while TE Jake Ferguson had a quiet 2 catches for 11 yards, he led the Cowboys with 7 targets in this contest.

Cowboys WR Brandin Cooks aims to rebound from a down 2022. The veteran tallied 57 catches, 699 yards, and 3 TDs while missing 4 games. Cooks’ efficiency metrics stunk, but it’s tough to knock him, given Houston’s awful QB play. A March trade to Dallas gives new life to his fantasy value. The Cowboys handed Cooks ~$12 million guaranteed, so they’re confident in him performing as the No. 2 behind CeeDee Lamb. Based on work at OTAs, Cooks’ speed remains a dangerous trait. “Not only the speed, but I think he's an exceptional route runner,” HC Mike McCarthy said via ESPN. “He has a great understanding of routes and time clocks, and specifics of getting in and out of breaks.” See where he slots in our WR rankings.

The Cowboys named Brian Schottenheimer their new OC. He spent this past season in Dallas as an offensive consultant. HC Mike McCarthy is expected to take over play-calling duties from the departed Kellen Moore, so we're not sure Schottenheimer's role will change much in 2023. He does have 12 seasons of experience as an NFL OC, most recently from 2018-2020 with the Seahawks. Those were run-leaning attacks, with 2 of the 3 finishing top 3 in rushing attempts.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy will take over play-calling duties from departed OC Kellen Moore, owner Jerry Jones said. Jones added that McCarthy will deploy a "version of the offenses he ran in Green Bay," according to The Dallas News' Calvin Watkins. McCarthy spent 13 years running the Packers offense, leading 10 of those teams to top 10 finishes in points, total yards or both. He was helped, of course, by having Brett Favre under center for his first 2 seasons and Aaron Rodgers for the final 11. McCarthy's offenses leaned pass, with 9 of them ranking higher in pass attempts than rush attempts. We'd expect a similar attack with QB Dak Prescott in 2023 but will keep an eye on McCarthy's plans throughout the offseason.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb hauled in 10 of 13 targets for 117 yards in Sunday's Divisional Round loss vs. the 49ers. TE Dalton Schultz also came up big again, catching 5 of 10 targets for 27 yards and 1 TD in the contest. Lamb will be locked into the WR1 conversation again in the coming season. On the other hand, Schultz is staring down free agency with an uncertain future ahead. It would certainly be great to see him return to the Cowboys long-term in hopes of extending his streak of TE1 finishes to 4 seasons and beyond. Add Schultz's name to the list of big question marks for the franchise looking ahead into the offseason.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz roped in 7 of 8 targets for 95 yards and 2 TDs in Monday’s Wild Card victory vs. the Buccaneers. Teammate WR CeeDee Lamb also performed well, snagging 4 of 6 his targets for 68 yards and a score of his own. This pair made a tremendous difference in the outcome of this game and will look to continue this success against the 49ers next weekend in the Divisional Round. Though the 49ers’ defense ranks 7th in Football Outsiders’ pass defense DVOA this season, we did see Seahawks WR D.K. Metcalf eclipse the century mark in receiving yards with 2 TDs on Saturday. Perhaps QB Dak Prescott and company could replicate that success in the next round.
