News: 13 hours agoLamb failed to catch any of his five targets and gained one yard on his lone rushing attempt during Sunday's 25-3 loss to the Football Team.
Spin: Lamb couldn't bring in any passes from Andy Dalton (concussion) and hardly stood a chance on any of the looks rookie third-string quarterback Ben DiNucci sent his way after entering the game. He had at least five receptions and seven targets in every game entering this contest, so the goose egg was a large departure from what fantasy managers had come to expect. Lamb's struggles could continue in next Sunday night's game against the Eagles if the team can't field a competent starter at quarterback, though it seems likely a veteran could be brought in from outside the organization if Dalton is forced to sit out.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Dallas selected Lamb with the 17th pick of April's draft. The Oklahoma product is fresh off a dominant 2019 campaign, in which he averaged 14.3 yards per target, 4.0 yards per route run and 11.1 yards after the catch ' all of which were best in this year's rookie class. Lamb is lean (198 pounds) but tall (6-foot-2) with solid speed (4.50 40-yard dash), as well as terrific separation and post-catch ability. Lamb is in and Randall Cobb out behind Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup, and so, while being third in line will limit Lamb's upside, note that all three 2019 Cowboys receivers were top 31 in fantasy points during 13 full weeks together. Add in Mike McCarthy's history of heavy reliance on three-wide sets and Lamb could flirt with flex value. He is a worth a late-round pick.
