CeeDee Lamb Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb posted a mediocre 5-53 receiving line on 8 targets in Sunday's win over the Rams. Those 8 targets marked a 50% share of Cooper Rush's 16 attempts, though. WR Michael Gallup checked in 2nd with 5 targets (31.3%). WR Noah Brown (2) and TE Dalton Schultz (1, left early) were the only other Dallas players to get any looks. Lamb has been targeted on 34% of Dallas pass attempts for the season. Once Dak Prescott is back to full health, Lamb could be a fantasy football difference-maker the rest of the way.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (groin) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He sat out Thursday’s practice but returned to a limited workout on Friday. There have been no reports about Lamb being limited today, so we’d keep him in fantasy lineups.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (groin) is expected to play vs. the Rams this afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Lamb was sidelined on Thursday before returning to a limited practice on Friday. That adds some risk to his Week 5 fantasy profile, but there's still plenty of upside vs. a Rams defense that's struggled against the pass early this season.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb put in a limited practice Friday after sitting out Thursday with a groin issue. Jon Machota of The Athletic reports that Lamb had an MRI "to make sure it wasn't anything significant" and got "good results." Lamb is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, but Machota says he's expected to play. Plan on using Lamb in your fantasy football lineups, but try to secure an insurance option in case he turns up inactive.

Cowboys WR Ceedee Lamb sat out Thursday's practice with a groin issue, but it doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Rams. "I'm fine. I'm good. I don't want to scare nobody," he said, per Yahoo's Jori Epstein. We'll watch for his Friday status.

Cowboys WR Ceedee Lamb led the team in targets (8), receptions (6) and yards (97) and caught 1 of Cooper Rush's 2 TD passes in Sunday's win over the Commanders. That marked a 29.6% share of Rush's total pass attempts. WR Noah Brown (6) was the only other Cowboy to see more than 3 targets. He caught 3 balls for 61 yards before leaving with a neck injury. WR Michael Gallup made his season debut -- coming off the ACL tear at the end of last year -- and posted a 2-24-1 line on 3 targets. TE Dalton Schultz played through the knee issue that cost him Week 3 and caught none of his 3 targets.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb tallied 8 grabs for 87 yards and 1 score in a Week 3 win over the Giants. His 12 targets easily led the team and represented a 38.7% share from Cooper Rush. He dropped an easy downfield ball before halftime, but fantasy owners can’t really complain about his production. The young WR has now tallied lines of 6-112 (2021), 7-75 and 8-87-1 in 3 starts with Rush. Dak Prescott (thumb) might only be a couple of weeks away from returning, and Lamb will clearly remain a fantasy starter in the meantime. Next up is a divisional tilt with Washington.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (knee) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. He increased his practice participation this week, but "there is still a process of return to play that he has to finish," HC Mike McCarthy said. CeeDee Lamb (98%), Noah Brown (86%) and Dennis Houston (64%) operated as Dallas' top 3 WRs with Gallup out last week.

WR CeeDee Lamb, TE Dalton Schultz and WR Noah Brown easily led Cowboys pass-catchers in playing time in Sunday night's loss to the Buccaneers. Schultz played the most snaps of any offensive skill players for the game (100%). Lamb trailed him by just 2 snaps while leading the team in routes (97.8%). Brown played just 7 fewer snaps than Lamb and trailed him by a mere 6 routes. Dennis Houston checked in 3rd among Dallas WRs at 40 snaps (58%) and 30 routes run (65.2%). Of course, the whole offense will be challenged to produce worthwhile fantasy numbers while Dak Prescott is out.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with his thumb injury, ESPN's Todd Archer reports. Prescott is meeting with a hand specialist on Monday, but the expectation is that he'll need a pin and plate inserted to stabilize his fractured joint. The short end of that 6-8 week timetable would have Prescott back for Week 8. But Dallas has a Week 9 bye, so Week 10 might be the most likely return date for Dak. His absence is obviously a big blow to all of the Cowboys' skill-position players. Prescott is cuttable in fantasy leagues without an IR spot.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb was back at practice on Wednesday. He missed about a week with a cut to his foot that required stitches. "Came out good," HC Mike McCarthy said after Wednesday's workout. Consider this a non-issue going forward.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb was sidelined for Wednesday's joint practice with the Chargers. He told insider Clarence Hill that he suffered a cut to his foot that required stitches. Lamb wouldn't say how it happened. We'll see exactly how long he's out, but we're not expecting this to impact Lamb's availability for the start of the season.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb missed this past week's minicamp with a hamstring injury. He said that he plans to work out with QB Dak Prescott prior to training camp next month, so it doesn't seem like a real concern. But we'll keep an eye on him over the next couple of months.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken believes the Cowboys' starters are "unlikely to see [their] usual workload" vs. the Eagles tonight. Dallas has little to play for with the NFC East already clinched. QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott, WR CeeDee Lamb, WR Amari Cooper and TE Dalton Schultz are all risky fantasy plays.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that his team will play its starters in Saturday night's regular-season finale at Philadelphia. "We're going to line up to do what we need to do to win the game," McCarthy told reporters, according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. We wouldn't be shocked if RB Ezekiel Elliott gets the night off to rest his knee, or if the Eagles decide to rest starters and thus present a light challenge. For now, though, you should assume that any active Cowboys on your fantasy football roster will be going in Week 18.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) put in a full week of practice and isn't listed on the final injury report. He'll play vs. the Saints on Thursday night and should be back in fantasy lineups as a WR1.
