2021 Fantasy Outlook
Lamb had a solid rookie year, but it could have been so much better. Through five games with Dak Prescott, Lamb put up a 40-29-433-2 line, numbers which prorate to 128-93-1,386-6. He fell off sharply when Andy Dalton took over, but Prescott is expected to be back for the start of training camp. At 6-2, 189, Lamb is a tall, smooth receiver who runs polished routes for a 22-year-old and has excellent burst when he catches the ball. Lamb probably won’t torch teams downfield that often — 4.50 40 time and two teammates who are bigger deep threats — but he’s ideal for the slot where the Cowboys used him most of the time. The biggest issue for Lamb is the competition for targets. Both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup had north of 100 last year, but it’s worth noting Lamb seemed to be Prescott’s favorite look early last season, when they barely even had time to develop a rapport.

Puts in full practice

November 28, 2021
Lamb (concussion) was deemed a full participant Sunday in the Cowboys' unofficial practice session, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
After sustaining the head injury exactly one week ago in the Cowboys' loss to the Chiefs, Lamb managed only one limited practice on a short week before being ruled out ahead of Dallas' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders. The Cowboys will have another quick turnaround for Week 13 with a Thursday night matchup against the Saints, but Lamb's ability to increase his practice activity a few days later bodes well for his chances of being able to play in New Orleans. He'll still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before exiting the concussion protocol, but head coach Mike McCarthy seems optimistic that the wideout will be able to do so in advance of Thursday's contest.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Lamb was a monster at Oklahoma the last two years with 26 TDs, including a rushing one, on 184 targets in 27 games. And lest one think his 2018 season was due to having last year's No. 1 pick Kyler Murray at quarterback, Lamb's 2019 season was even bigger and more efficient with Jalen Hurts. At 6-2, 189, Lamb is tall and rangy with elite ball skills and excellent hands. He's elusive after the catch, quick in and out of breaks and dangerous in open space. Despite not being a true burner, he'll make plays down the field by tracking the ball in the air and going over top of smaller defenders. Lamb's route running should improve in the pros, and he has the physical tools and football instincts to be an elite NFL receiver. Landing in Dallas with the 17th pick wasn't ideal - the Cowboys have two established receivers in Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper. But Randall Cobb's 83 targets have left for Houston, the Cowboys had the 10th-most pass attempts last year, and they don't have an established receiving threat at tight end. There's also a good chance the team throws more passes in the red zone under new coach Mike McCarthy.
