CeDee Lamb is finally showing his potential as a legitimate number-one wide receiver.

Despite never winning in January and always coming up short when they need to be at their best, the annual conversations about the Dallas Cowboys being Super Bowl favorites have taken center stage again. In fairness, they’ve been impressive, grabbing wins over the Minnesota Vikings, Giants, and Indianapolis Colts during a three-week stretch.

Despite a strong showing versus the Vikes, an impressive second-half showing versus the G-Men on Turkey Day, and the dismantling of Indy thanks to an explosion of points in the fourth quarter, Dallas’ receiving corps has looked fairly pedestrian at times.

They’ve tallied 426 receiving yards these past two weeks, but as is the case with the Commanders, Dallas has more talent at the position than Big Blue. Would you rather have Darius Slayton, Richie James, and Isaiah Hodgins in the lineup, or are you hitching your wagon to CeeDee Lamb, Noah Brown, and Michael Gallup? That’s what we thought!

CeeDee Lamb has been Dak Prescott’s main as Dak has targeted him 18 times during Week 12 and Week 13. Lamb has been on quite a tear during this time, collecting 177 receiving yards and one touchdown. He is also averaging 15.95 yards per catch during the Cowboys’ past two games.

Michael Gallup, and tight end Dalton Schultz have each proven to be valuable complementary pieces. Maybe CeeDee is a legitimate number-one receiver after all, but the Eagles have a trio of Batman-level players because as Darius Slay put it, there are no ‘Robins’ in Philadelphia. The Birds top this list.
