CeeDee Lamb was a high draft pick in fantasy leagues. He was a popular prop bet for "Monday Night Football." Dallas Cowboys fans are obviously invested in his success.
So at a little before 8:30 p.m. Central time on Monday, you probably knew someone who was screaming in anguish and going all Ken Dorsey on whatever was nearby.
There was little action in the Dallas Cowboys-New York Giants first half when Lamb got deep and was all alone. You can't blame Cooper Rush for what happened next. He delivered a perfect pass that traveled about 45 yards in the air.
Lamb just bricked it off his hands.

Here's another angle, if you want to torture yourself some more:
Unbelievable. At best that was going to be a 52-yard touchdown. He had one man to beat to get to the end zone. At worst it was going to be about a 40-yard gain.
If your over prop bets on Lamb lost or you fell short by three or so points in your fantasy matchup, there it was. Though Lamb made up for his mistake in the fourth quarter with three clutch plays, including a brilliant 1-yard touchdown to help lead Dallas to a big win. He finished with 87 yards and a touchdown.
If that late rally wasn't enough for your bets or fantasy team you can still be mad about Lamb's drop, but at the end of the day Lamb had done his job.
