Ranking the Dallas Cowboys top 3 wide receivers in 2021
2. CeeDee Lamb (WR)
After a successful rookie season for the former first-round pick, Lamb will likely look to take a huge step up in his game in 2021. Last season, he had 74 catches for 935 yards and five touchdowns. Even without Prescott, the former Oklahoma star was able to finish second in catches, yards and yards per reception (12.6) on the team.
Most of Lamb’s success came with Dallas’ superstar quarterback under center. In five games with Prescott, he had 29 catches for 433 yards and two touchdowns. In those games, the 6-foot-2 wide receiver had at least five catches and 55 yards in every game.
Like Cooper, Lamb’s production will likely increase next year with his superstar quarterback back from injury. After a tremendous rookie season, Lamb has the skill set to possibly make a huge leap in his game this season. Here’s what head coach Mike McCarthy recently said according to NFL.com.
"“I think CeeDee is an excellent example of what you are looking for in your second-year player. The second-year player benefits the most in the full offseason program. They make the second-year jump. He is very comfortable, very natural. CeeDee is definitely making that move you like to see in your second-year players.”"
Due to Lamb’s production in his rookie season, it appears that the second-year player should be even better next year. Additionally, with another off-season with Prescott, their connection should only continue to blossom.
