3. CeeDee Lamb has officially entered elite status
After another unbelievable game by superstar wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, he has cemented himself as one of the best receivers in the game. This comes after his fourth 100-yard performance of the season, a season where he has had just two games with less than 45 yards receiving.
On Saturday, Lamb had 120 receiving yards on 10 catches and two touchdowns. This also marks his second multi-touchdown game of the season, the other coming against the Green Bay Packers in Week 10.
Lamb ranks among top receivers in the NFL in several major categories prior to Monday Night Football including catches (91, fifth among WRs), yards (1207, seventh among WRs), and touchdowns (eight, tied for fifth among WRs). He has answered the call as this team’s number one wide receiver.
After the trade of Amari Cooper in the offseason, all the pressure was put on Lamb’s shoulders to be the receiver they thought they were getting when they drafted him. He has been dominant this season, and he has become one of the most lethal weapons in the entire league very quickly.
