5. CeeDee Lamb came into WR1 form
One of the biggest questions coming into the season is if CeeDee Lamb will breakout as the WR1 most expected him to be. After the Cooper trade, it was evident this team was banking on just that, and it paid off.
Whether it was the right move to move on from Cooper is up for debate, but I don’t know if we would’ve seen this jump from Lamb with him in this offense. Lamb found a ton of success this year, totaling over 100 catches, 1300 receiving yards, and eight touchdowns in the regular season.
Lamb certainly looked like the receiver media members expected him to be coming out of college, and that was much needed this year with the rest of the receiving group underachieving in 2022. He consistently was the best receiver in every single game for the Cowboys this year.
Last season, Lamb did take a small step, but this year was something we haven’t seen since Dez Bryant’s prime. He gave Prescott a guy who he could target 10+ times a game and get consistent production out of, which is something the offense desperately needed this year.
