Lamb, who is entering his third NFL season after being the 17th pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, was named as a Pro Bowl replacement this past year. He finished the year with 79 catches, 1,102 receiving yards, and 6 touchdowns.
Despite the overall numbers looking really good, there were a lot of moments of inconsistency which included drops. After having eight drops his rookie year, he matched that total again in a year where you were looking for that number to decrease.
Assuming that Amari Cooper is not going to be a Cowboy in 2022 and WR Michael Gallup, who is nearing an agreement to rejoin the Cowboys, is coming off of a torn ACL it will be Lamb who will be the main focus for defenses which only puts more pressure on him to turn into a true number one option for Dallas.
The sample size is very small but in one career game without Amari Cooper, Lamb only posted one catch and 14 yards on four targets. To be fair, that game was last year against the Chiefs when Lamb suffered a concussion right before halftime and could not finish the game.
If you believe that Ceedee Lamb can put together a super impressive off-season and come into summer workouts looking like a different player, then expect a big season from Number 88, especially after having a full season playing with QB Dak Prescott.
If Lamb cannot improve on his weaknesses going into 2022, he could be in for a tough year production-wise, which could reflect negatively on the Cowboys as a whole as he is going to be a major factor on this offense.
