Receiver CeeDee Lamb has taken another step forward towards stardom in 2023. Lamb is the clear-cut No. 1 pass-catching option for the Cowboys. The 2020 first-round pick has the versatility to line up all across the field and create chunk plays downfield.
His silky smooth route running isn't anything to look over. The 24-year-old is first in the NFL in receptions (122), second in receiving yards (1,651 yards), and tied for third in receiving touchdowns (10). He's exploded for at least six catches and 110 receiving yards in eight games thus far.
Travis Kelce (1,338 yards), Cooper Kupp (1.947 yards), and Mike Evans (1,006 yards) were all the leading pass-catchers for their respective clubs during their Super Bowl-winning campaigns. These weapons showcased a knack for taking over certain games and drives when it was required.
Lamb has displayed that all year long for the Cowboys. Since he arrived to Dallas in 2020, the Oklahoma product built a strong rapport with Prescott. He's recorded 120-plus targets and north of 1,000 receiving yards in three straight seasons. When things don't seem to be going well for the offense, look in the direction of No. 88.
Lamb's ability to attract two defenders will also open things up for his fellow teammates. Furthermore, defenses can't load up the box and that will free up the run game. Lamb's outstanding playmaking capability has a ripple effect within the offense.
