#1. Lamb will play in the slot

CeeDee Lamb will more than likely spend a lot of time in the slot this upcoming season with both Gallup and Cooper in tow and established on the outsides. What this means is a few things.

First off, it means that he will oftentimes see the less talented defensive backs in the secondary. That also means that his opposing defenders will often times be on the smaller side and definitely smaller than him, with his 6-foot-2 frame.

You also have a bit of pick your poison going on there, but that bleeds into the second reason.

#2. Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup will draw most of the attention

It’s one thing to be a really good player on your own or to play across from one, as in your opposite wideout or what the Cowboys have had since pairing Cooper and Gallup on the outsides. It’s a totally different thing to be a beast in your own right, while playing in between two other beasts such as Gallup and Cooper.

With the amount of attention that will be paid to them, newly minted starting tight end Blake Jarwin, and not to mention the underrated, undervalued, and underappreciated Ezekiel Elliott, Lamb should be in line for a ton of production. That is the second reason.
