CeeDee Lamb Expected To Receive Carries in 2020

When went to the in it left a vacancy for a for the in 2020. Shockingly, they would get their man in the as dynamic was selected 17th overall. His abilities as a pass-catcher speak for themselves. However, another dimension of Lamb's skill set will likely be on display as he's expected to receive carries this season.

“Look for second-year offensive play-caller to get Lamb touches as an outside receiver, inside receiver and ball-carrier on jet sweeps,” Jon Machota of The Athletic reported.

This makes a lot of sense when factoring in how explosive Lamb is once he has the ball in his hands. His speed, elusiveness, and ability to cut on a dime make him a threat to turn small plays into long gains and even touchdowns at any moment.

Another reason this is a good idea is that unlike his days as an Oklahoma Sooner he won't be the first or even the second option in the Cowboys passing attack. and both went over 1,100 yards in 2019 and will certainly get more one-on-one opportunities with the presence of Lamb. That being said, getting the ball to Lamb in the could create an entirely different dynamic for the Cowboys which was the top-ranked unit of its kind last season.

Lamb is coming off an extremely productive year with the Sooners. He registered 62 receptions for 1,327 yards and 14 touchdowns on his way to First-team All-Big 12 and Consensus All-American honors. His 21.4 yards per catch ranked third the nation and was tops for all receivers with more than 30 receptions.

The firepower on the Cowboys offense is up there with the best in the , and with Lamb added to the mix, the scoreboard could potentially light up like the Fourth of July in 2020.
