CeeDee Lamb playing like a first round pick

A.J. Brown isn't the only NFC East wide receiver that has been hitting up as CeeDee Lamb has put together back-to-back big weeks. In Week 6, Lamb had seven receptions for 117 receiving yards and after their bye week he had 12 receptions for 158 receiving yards and two touchdowns on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams.

The start of the year has been frustrating for fantasy football managers that probably used a first or second round draft pick on the Cowboys wide receiver in their drafts. The most frustrating part was that Lamb just wasn't seeing a high volume of targets as he had only one game with more than seven in the first five weeks of the season.

The good news for Lamb is that the schedule is very favorable over the next few weeks with a road game against the Eagles, home game against the Giants, road game against the Carolina Panthers, followed by a home game against the Commanders. The patience could finally be paying off when it comes to CeeDee Lamb.
