Cowboys Standout: CeeDee Lamb, WR

Once again, CeeDee Lamb proved Dallas correct in assuming he could be the No. 1 wideout. While it's true they were ripped off when trading away Amari Cooper, Lamb has proven to be a far superior player.

What makes him stand out is how he can move all over the field. Lamb will line up out wide as well as in the slot. He will even go into the backfield at times and is constantly causing confusion for opposing defenses with how he's used in motion.

He also showed insane toughness, hauling in catches despite contact.

All of that was on full display Sunday as Lamb hauled in 11 passes for 143 yards. He was constantly finding himself open, even coming up big when targeted on third downs. He converted a third-and-two early in the game and later hauled in a pass on third-and-14 from the Jets 39, going for 15 yards, as he helped set up Brandon Aubrey's 55-yard field goal.

Last season, Lamb went off with 107 receptions for 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns. He then started out slow this year with 77 yards on four receptions against the Giants. For most players, that's not a slow start but Lamb — who has had four games with at least 10 receptions in his last six contests — proved he can routinely do better than that.
