Report: Dallas Cowboys #1 Receiver CeeDee Lamb Will See Plenty of Targets

Fantasy football owners are anxiously waiting for a good report on CeeDee Lamb.

You asked and you shall receive. Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb is going to see plenty lot of action in Week 1,   and that plan will  continue throughout the regular season. Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy made it clear on Monday that Lamb will be targeted often, despite the wide receiver likely facing double teams at times.

Via Michael Gehlken: 

“We fully anticipate him to be targeted as far as double teams and things like that,” McCarthy said starting Week 1. “He’s the guy…Our job is to make sure he gets the opportunities to perform.”

CeeDee Lamb is expected to have a huge year following the trade of Amari Cooper to Cleveland. He is now the Cowboys #1 receiver in the wake of Cooper leaving.

The reactions to this news were pretty mixed.

  • “Maybe if you still had Cooper then you wouldn’t need to worry about double coverage on Lamb??” one fan wondered.
  • “Round 2-3, and an obvious must-start until further notice,” one fantasy expert tweeted.
  • “Want this team to emphasize getting CeeDee the ball. 145+ targets please and thank you,” one fan added.

Dallas Cowboys fans have to be pumped about hearing this tidbit of info, although it sounds a lot easier than it will actually be in reality. Lamb will no doubt be seeing plenty of double teams, as the Cowboys don’t have a clear cut #2 receiver.

We’ll see if Dak can live up to that monster contract he signed.
