CeeDee Lamb had a spectacular rookie campaign with the Dallas Cowboys marked by many acrobatic catches on the turf in 2020. He displayed his elite catch radius and consistently produced despite a makeshift offensive line and a revolving door at quarterback following Dak Prescott’s season-ending injury.

Lamb became only one of 19 receivers to accumulate 1000-plus yards from scrimmage in a rookie season since 1990. Joining a talented receiving corps. featuring Amari Cooper- known for being one of the best route runners in the NFL, and Michael Gallup, Lamb carved his own niche. He compiled 74 receptions for 935 receiving yards, a 12.6 average-per-catch, and five touchdowns. Lamb put together two, 100-plus yard games and moved the chains for Dallas.

With the return of Prescott in 2021 from his compound right ankle fracture and dislocation, along with a healthy offensive line, the sky is the limit for Lamb in Kellen Moore’s system. He has the capability of lining up on the inside and outside of both sides of the formation and is one of the NFL’s most promising young stars.
