|Lamb lived up to his first-round draft pedigree with an impressive 74/935/5 receiving line as a rookie for Dallas in 2020. When you consider he did that without Dak Prescott for most of the season, it makes his performance even more impressive.
When you add in the fact that Lamb was tied with fellow rookie Jerry Jeudy for the second-most drops (9), Lamb could have easily finished with over 1000 yards and closer to ten total touchdowns.
The 2021 prospects for Lamb and the passing game for Dallas appear to be great, with Dak Prescott returning from injury along with three starters on the offensive line. One aspect that could reduce the overall performance of Lamb and Prescott is the improvement of the defensive unit in Dallas. Prescott and the offense were forced to pass at a ridiculous pace last year because the Cowboy defense could not stop anyone. Jerry Jones and the Dallas from office addressed this deficiency in the draft and via free agency, which could lead to lower scoring games and less volume in the passing game.
Regardless, Lamb is an ascending star who could be in line for a monster year. Should Amari Cooper or Michael Gallup get injured, Lamb's ceiling could be huge.

FFToday's Take: This figures to be a minor deal considering Lamb is fully vaccinated. Vaccinated players must test negative twice 24 hours apart in order to return, so he should be able to return to practice later in the week if he is asymptomatic. Lamb is typically being drafted around the likes of Terry McLaurin and Allen Robinson, meaning he will need to push for about 90 catches, 1,000-plus yards and eight touchdowns in order to pay off at his current third-round ADP.

FFToday's Take: Cooper was activated off the PUP list on August 10th after rehabbing from off-season foot surgery. All indications are that he will be ready to go Week 1 without issue. Cooper is sporting a mid-fourth round ADP in PPR leagues about a full round behind CeeDee Lamb.
