4.) CeeDee Lamb

In the Cowboys’ first six games, wide receiver CeeDee Lamb averaged just 15 points a game (with just one game above 20 points). After their bye week in Week 7, Lamb went on a tear for fantasy owners where he had five games with 30+ points and scored no less than 16 points in a game.

The connection between him and quarterback Dak Prescott was unstoppable at one point. He had four games where he caught 150+ receiving yards, including a Week 17 performance against the Detroit Lions where he caught 13 passes for 227 yards and a touchdown. From Week 13 and on, he had no less than 10 targets a game and he finished the last two regular season games with 13 catches each.

Lamb was a monster after Dallas’ bye week and he played like the best receiver in the NFL in the second half of the season. However, it is important to keep an eye on the Cowboys this offseason who are coming off a beatdown from the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round and there is uncertainty at coaching and potentially even the quarterback position.
