Strictly speaking of the wide receiver position, there’s not another team around the league that rivals the talent the Dallas Cowboys have been able to put together the past few years. Other teams may have a combination of pass catchers just as good or maybe a little better, however, they are few and far between.
The trio of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb has the potential to be something truly great, quite possibly something like the NFL has never seen. On just about any other team around the league anyone of these three WRs would be the “go to” guy for that respective ballclub, yet with the Cowboys they could be competing for that title.
Fortunately, egos won’t be a problem for the Dallas Cowboys Top 3 receivers. None of them will be demanding more targets in the passing game, which in the grander scheme of things will make the Cowboys offense much better for it. This will stop opposing defenses from trying to neutralize one of these WRs, which in turn will make the aerial attack much more dangerous in Dallas.
As amazing as all of the sounds, and it does, one of these receivers are bound to become “the guy” in the passing game. The past year and a half that person has been Amari Cooper, yet Michael Gallup was nipping at his heels last year, thus giving the Cowboys two 1,000 yard receivers in 2019. Add a talented WR like CeeDee Lamb, and suddenly the competition to become No. 1 intensifies.
Anyway you look at it this is an excellent problem for the Dallas Cowboys to have. No one’s going to turn down a plethora of riches, and that’s exactly what the Cowboys have right now at the WR position. Any one of the three in the Cooper, Gallup, or Lamb possesses the required skill set to be the most targeted and productive WR in 2020.
Odds are Amari Cooper will once again be Dak Prescott’s favorite target in the passing game, however, I don’t think Michael Gallup or CeeDee Lamb will be far behind. And that’s not even mentioning the upgrade Blake Jarwin should provide as a receiver now that he’s taking over the starting duties for Jason Witten. It’s almost too surreal to be true.
I don’t know about you, but I’m beyond excited to see what the Dallas Cowboys passing game looks like in 2020. I honestly don’t care who becomes the No. 1 WR for the Cowboys this season as long as they’re all playing up to their talent level. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if this offensive unit becomes the next “Greatest Show on Turf”.
