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 NFL, and with Lamb added to the mix, the scoreboard could potentially light up like the Fourth of July in 2020.

    No offense Matthew, but this isn’t news. The subject kind of implies he would get the ball out of the backfield (ala Ty Montgomery?). Every offense runs the jet sweep. If you play slot wide receiver in today’s NFL, you should expect to get the occasional handoff … in fact if you don’t, the jet sweep motion won’t alter a defense.


    Kudos to you for enticing us with “news” though … you got your click!


    I apologize, I stated that I meant no offense in my initial remark. I probably let the plethora of comments I’ve seen here lately exasperate me and perhaps I came across terse and short.


    Can you imagine even more possibilities with 4 wide and pollard split out there? That was basically his position slot reciever/rb in college.
    Hell There’s QB’s in the NFL that could only dream of having this much firepower at their disposal.


    Actually, the Boys have one starter in Cooper who is chronically injured and was in the top 3 in drops ,one who is a rookie ,and Gallop who led the league in drops. Then, there are really no backups at the receivers.
    Dont fall for the hype .

    Cowboys fan

    I think you mite wanna go check those statistics again…. Smh


    Given Cooper’s feet issue, I expect Lamb to become the outside starter later in the season with Cooper becoming the slot. This would have happened to start the season if not for covid19 killing the preseason.


    Seems to me that if you have foot issues, and as a staff you are looking to lessen the load on the feet, you’d prefer the guy to be on the outside. And I’d like to see Gallup start getting reps in the slot as well.


    I hope we do better than “scoreboard could potentially light up like the Fourth of July in 2020” becuse we didn’t have much of fourth of july this year and that was a bad pun to use becuse it matress it seem like we are going to be trash..just saying

    I agree with any strategy that puts the ball in Lamb’s hands more. Reminds me alot of D Hopkins one of the best “bad ball” catchers I’ve ever seen and a hard man to get to the ground .


    … and another reason he should have been allowed to wear the No.10
