View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Lamb ranked just 37th among WRs in target share last season. That did mark a bump from his rookie year, at least.
  • Pro Football Focus gave Lamb the 10th-best receiving grade among wideouts last season.
  • Lamb ranked just 34th last season in share of team air yards, but he’s almost certainly in for a bump there. Amari Cooper ranked just 4 spots behind him, and is now in Cleveland. Michael Gallup led Cowboys pass-catchers in that category in 2020 (before losing 8 games to injury last year). He’s coming off a Jan. 2 ACL tear. Even if Gallup’s ready to go and somewhere near his usual self, the departures of Cooper and Cedrick Wilson leave Dallas with the league’s 7th largest vacated air-yards share.
  • Cooper and Wilson also leave behind 25.5% target share.
  • NFL Next Gen Stats credited Lamb with 5.7 yards after catch per reception, vs. 3.6 expected YAC per reception. That 2.1 over expected ranked 7th highest in the league. The 6 players ahead of him:
    • Deebo Samuel
    • Ja’Marr Chase
    • Kendrick Bourne
    • Brandon Aiyuk
    • Bryan Edwards
    • Mecole Hardman
  • Lamb’s average target depth increased with Dak Prescott back in 2021, vs. his 2020 rate.
  • Dallas also played him outside a lot more in 2021. After lining up in the slot 93.2% of the time as a rookie, Lamb did so 39.8% of the time last season. More time outside should mean more downfield work.
  • Lamb ranked 3rd among Cowboys WRs in end-zone targets last season. His 6 tied for 44th at the position. Cooper garnered 9. Gallup got 7 in just 9 games. Those numbers may differ by source, but the point is that he landed behind Cooper. As a rookie, Lamb led the team in that category and tied for 11th among WRs in end-zone targets. Scoring just 3 times among those 12 targets – according to PFF – could have been bad luck or bad QBing. Either way, that’s another area with potential upside.
  • It was just 3 years ago that Lamb was coming off strong market shares in his 3rd and final Oklahoma season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Lamb has finished 24th and 20th in PPR points in his 2 NFL seasons. There’s quite a bit of projection in getting him all the way up to #5 in our PPR rankings. But there’s plenty working in favor of Lamb’s upside. He’s still just 23 and heading into his 3rd season. The physical talent is obvious. And the departures of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson plus Michael Gallup’s ACL tear leave a lot of opportunity available. On top of that, Dak Prescott now has a full year of action between him and the ankle injury. Lamb’s no lock to finish this high, but the path is there.

CeeDee Lamb, WR DAL

9:58pm EST 11/24/22

Lamb goes over 100

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught 6 balls for 106 yards in Thursday's win over the Giants. He led the team in both categories, as well as drawing a team-high 11 targets. Lamb nearly added a 2-yard TD in the 4th quarter but just missed getting his feed down inbounds. It's the 2nd game of 100+ yards for Lamb among the past 3. WR Michael Gallup finished 2nd on the team in targets (8), receptions (5) and yards (63). The Cowboys get the Colts in Week 13.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb racked up 11 catches for 150 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's OT loss at Green Bay. He drew a season-high 15 targets and exceeded 100 yards for the 1st time this season. TE Dalton Schultz ranked 2nd in targets (8), receptions (6) and yards (54) and snagged QB Dak Prescott's other TD. WR Michael Gallup caught 4 of 7 targets for 35 yards. RB Tony Pollard was the only other Cowboys to catch more than 1 ball.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott delivered 250 yards and 2 TDs on 21-of-27 passing in Sunday's win over the Bears. He added 34 yards and a TD on 5 rushing attempts. He found WR CeeDee Lamb for a team-high 77 yards on 5 catches and connected for a TD. The other TD pass went to rookie TE Jake Ferguson. TE Dalton Schultz tied for the team target lead (7) and caught 6 for 74 yards. WR Michael Gallup added 4-49 receiving on 6 targets. No other Cowboy drew more than 2 targets. Prescott looks like at least a top-12 fantasy QB going forward, with solid matchups at Green Bay and Minnesota following the Week 9 bye.

Cowboys WR Noah Brown (foot) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bears. His absence frees up a few targets for WRs CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup.

Dynasty Write-up
Many seem to be down on Lamb this offseason, but it's tough to say who's to blame for his disappointing 2021 target share. We're still betting on the talent, though, of a former 1st-round pick who improved his receptions per game, yards per catch, yards per target and yards per route run in his 2nd season. Lamb will head into just his age-23 campaign in the fall and should be tied to Dak Prescott at least through the end of 2024. Dallas shed Amari Cooper and re-signed Michael Gallup, which should at least mean a net gain for Lamb's 2022 target share. Gallup, of course, is coming off a Jan. 2 ACL tear.
