Cedarian Lamb, otherwise known as "CeeDee," is an NFL wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys. Lamb was born in Opelousas, Louisiana. He lived in New Orleans, but he and his family had to migrate to Houston, Texas, as a result of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Before earning his spot in the NFL, he starred at John and Randolph Foster High School in Richmond, Texas. There he became a four-star prospect and committed to the University of Oklahoma, where he caught passes from quarterbacks Baker Mayfield, Kyler Murray, and Jalen Hurts, who all made their way to the NFL by way of Oklahoma. Lamb put up his fair share of numbers as a Sooner. In three seasons, he finished with 3,292 yards on 173 receptions and scored 32 touchdowns.
Lamb is a sublime talent boasting a 4.5 second 40-yard dash and spectacular collegiate production. The Dallas Cowboys drafted him with the No. 17 overall pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. His rookie season was fantastic. He put together over 1,000 yards from scrimmage, including 935 yards as a receiver. He hauled in 74 receptions and also scooted for a 47-yard kick return touchdown. With a very good rookie season under his belt that culminated with a WR18 finish, expectations were high for him to make the leap into the stratosphere among the elites at the wide receiver position. That particular jump did not occur in his sophomore season, but Lamb did improve on his proficient rookie campaign. He had five more receptions than in his rookie season, finishing the 2021 season with 79 (No. 20) catches. He also accrued 1,102 (No. 14) receiving yards and six (No. 20) total touchdowns.
Lamb's 2022 was stellar, as he averaged 17.7 (No. 7) fantasy points per game. That was even while enduring five games without an injured Dak Prescott. Lamb still delivered multiple decent performances with Cooper Rush under center. Once Prescott returned, Lamb returned to elite production, including six 100-plus-yard performances from week 10 on, including the playoffs. His stock rose yet again and he is commonly held out as a top-10 option in dynasty at the wide receiver position.
