Rest Of Way Outlook

Week 14
He led his ­team with 7 catches, 10 targets and 61 receiving yards. Operating at times out of the backfield, he had 2 carries for 15 yards.
Lamb has totaled 138 receptions in his 1st 2 seasons, more than any Cowboy in the franchise’s 62 seasons. He’s tied for 1st in the team’s history with 17 games with 5 or more catches, with 4 games remaining. With RBs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard dinged up, Lamb could see more time in the backfield; he has averaged 8.9 yards on his 18 career carries.
Week 13
After missing 1 game, Lamb returned for game highs of 7 catches and 13 targets and a team-high 89 yards at New Orleans. Also, with the Dallas running game sputtering, Lamb took an overhand lateral from QB Dak Prescott for a 33-yard gain listed as rushing yardage and the longest run of his 2-year career.
It’s likely that Lamb will have fewer targets at Washington on Sunday because WR Amari Cooper is likely to be reintegrated into the lineup after spending little time on the field while returning from missing 2 games. Lamb’s history tells us he would have his best fantasy production in Week 15 against the Giants. He has averaged 83.7 yards per game against them, including 84 in Week 5 when he scored a TD.
Week 11
Bottled up by the Chiefs’ double coverage and by a short-passing offense on a windy day, Lamb caught 3 of 4 targets for a mere 14 yards. His only deep target resulted in a concussion when he banged his head in the end zone on an intercepted pass from QB Dak Prescott just before halftime. He did not return to the game.
With the short turn-around of playing on Thursday, Lamb seemed unlikely to be able to play against the Raiders. The Cowboys were encouraged that he was able to attend team meetings Monday, but Lamb didn’t practice on Tuesday.
Week 10
Lamb caught 6 of 7 targets for 94 yards and 2 TDs, all in the 1st half. After going for a 2-point conversion and a 36-3 halftime lead, HC Mike McCarthy called off the dogs in the 2nd half. If it had been a closer game, Lamb could easily have eclipsed his career best of 149 receiving yards.
Lamb could be a key performer in games at Kansas City Sunday and at home against the Raiders on Thanksgiving, when passes are likely to exceed the number of turkeys. Earlier this season, Lamb had some trouble keeping a focus or just plain dropping passes, but the 2nd-year man has become a more reliable receiver for QB Dak Prescott.
Week 9
Lamb’s game-high 9 targets provided just 2 catches for 23 yards. He dropped a pass, and Lamb and QB Dak Prescott did not seem to be on the same page against Denver’s pass rush that disrupted the flow of the Dallas offense. He had come in following 2 100-yard games.
Expect Lamb to continue to have plenty of targets. He had 8 or more in 5 of the Cowboys’ 1st 8 games. Against Sunday’s opponents, the Falcons, Lamb caught 6 of 9 targets for 106 yards. He also could have a big game in Week 11 against Kansas City’s porous pass D.
Week 8
Early in Sunday night’s game, Lamb seemed to have a rapport with QB Cooper Rush, making his 1st NFL start. Lamb caught 3 passes in the 1st quarter, including 1 on which he had to reach below his knees to catch the ball. He finished with 6 catches in 8 targets for 112 yards. However, on a 3rd down in the 4th quarter of a tie game, an old bugaboo returned to Lamb’s game. He ran a slant and dropped the ball, and the Cowboys had to punt.
Lamb’s hands had been much more reliable in recent games until the 4th-quarter drop. He was mostly exonerated because Dallas came back to win. In the Cowboys’ preceding game, he had career highs of 9 catches, 149 yards and 2 TDs. It might help him if starting QB Dak Prescott returns Sunday at home against Denver.
Week 5
Lamb led the Dallas WRs with 4 receptions in 6 targets for 84 yards and a TD, He also carried once for 4 yards. The 2nd-year man continues to improve in the areas of concentration, holding on to the ball and getting open deep.
Don’t forget that Lamb is 1 of the most electrifying return men in the NFL. The Cowboys have toned down special teams coordinator John Fassel’s daring, off-the-wall play calling. What that could mean is that Fassel is waiting in the weeds, trying to set up Lamb for a big play, possibly a scoring play. QB Dak Prescott already has confidence in Lamb.
Week 4
In a limited passing attack in a game when Dallas ran for 245 yards, Lamb and the Cowboys WRs had limited roles. Lamb had 5 of their 10 targets but caught just 2 for 13 yards and didn’t reach the end zone. Even with a mere 22 passes, 4 other receivers scored a TD each.
Inconsistency has marked Lamb’s 1 ¼ NFL seasons. With an opportunity to be QB Dak Prescott’s deep receiver with WR Amari Cooper nursing injuries, Lamb has had limited success downfield. He hasn’t been a frequent underneath receiver with 2 TEs and WR Cedrick Wilson operating on short patterns. Until Lamb becomes more consistent, he’ll be a high-risk WR with so-so fantasy value.
Week 3
He got open deep, QB Dak Prescott saw Lamb and made an accurate, on-time throw that the 2nd-year man caught at the Eagles’ 1-yard line for a 44-yard gain to set up the game’s 1st TD. Aside from that, Lamb caught just 2 of 5 other targets for another 22 yards. There were few individual lines worthy of note in a game the Cowboys won easily.
With WR Amari Cooper still hurting from a rib injury, Lamb becomes the deep target for Prescott. It’s time for CeeDee to show that when he gets open, he can be a reliable target. That won’t be easy this week against Carolina’s top-ranked pass defense.
Week 2
In an up-and-down Week 1 performance at Tampa Bay, Lamb caught just 7 passes in 15 targets for 104 yards and a 34-yard TD. We called him out for dropped passes and other misses. We’re not sure that was a motivation, but against the Chargers in Week 2, Lamb led the Cowboys with 8 catches, 9 targets and 81 yards. The 1 he didn’t catch was a Los Angeles INT. Lamb can be a thrill-a-minute WR and kick returner. He also can be a major disappointment. This week, we expect more of the up side against the Eagles. In Week 4, like the rest of the Cowboys, he’ll have to step up against a Carolina defense that has been the NFL’s best in the early going.
Week 1
In an up-and-down performance at Tampa Bay, Lamb caught 7 of 15 targets for 104 yards, including a 34-yard TD. He also caught a 3rd-and-11 pass for a 31-yard gain to set up the FG that gave Dallas a 4th-quarter lead.

Lamb and his WR teammates could face a greater challenge Sunday against a Chargers pass defense that allowed just 133 passing yards in Week 1

Basic Stats Preseason Player Analysis

What You Need to Know:

  • Lamb got off to a strong start before Dak Prescott went down. After Week 5 (Prescott’s injury game), the rookie was on pace for:
    • 93 catches
    • 1,386 yards
    • 6 TDs
  • His 16-game pace over the remaining 11 contests:
    • 65 catches
    • 730 yards
    • 4 TDs
  • Lamb’s catch rate and yards per reception dipped after Prescott’s injury. He went from a 73% catch rate with Prescott to 63.5% with all other QBs. The rookie’s yards per reception fell from 15.3 with Prescott to 11.2 without him.
  • That came despite his average depth of target actually seeing a slight boost. Lamb had a 10.00 ADOT through Prescott’s 4 full games, according to Pro Football Focus. It was 10.13 from Week 6 on. (The QB went down in the 2nd quarter of Week 5.)
  • Lamb ranked 56th in PFF receiving grade among 200 targeted wideouts, trailing Amari Cooper but ahead of Michael Gallup.
  • Lamb ranked 2nd on the team in targets as a rookie, leading Gallup by just 6 targets. The rookie led the trio in targets 3 times in 16 games, tying for the lead 2 other times. Cooper led 6 times and Gallup 4.
  • The medians for weekly targets for the trio went: Cooper 7.5, Lamb 7, Gallup 6.
  • Dallas WRs collectively gathered their largest share of targets since 2017, ranking 8th in the league last season. That could leave room for a move in either direction: a larger slice going back to TE in 2021 with Blake Jarwin back -- or the Cowboys’ dynamic (and still young) WR trio commanding even more.
  • The rookie ran 93.2% of his snaps from the slot, according to PFF. He still beat Cooper in ADOT for the season, 10.32 to 9.49.
  • Lamb certainly showed the ability to work downfield in college, averaging 19.0 yards per reception for his 3-year Oklahoma career.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

There is plenty to get excited about with this former 1st-round pick, and it wouldn’t shock us if Lamb finishes 2021 as Dallas’ top-scoring fantasy WR. The only problem with his fantasy outlook is that drafters are extremely excited. As of this writing, Lamb sits 13th among wideouts in FFPC best-ball ADP -- going at the Round 3-4 turn.

Lamb is good enough to break into the position’s top 12 in his 2nd season, but sharing the field with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup will make that more of a challenge than it might be in plenty of other places. We don’t want to be totally out on Lamb, but that WR13 price doesn’t come close to matching our WR22 PPR projection on him.
