The Dallas Cowboys didn’t have many bright spots in their 2020 season. However, CeeDee Lamb showed as a rookie that it is possible to be an impact player for Mike McCarthy’s offense.
Lamb had 74 receptions last season for 935 yards and five touchdowns. These are impressive numbers for a rookie wideout. It’s even more impressive considering that Dak Prescott was absent most of the year.
Albert Breer, an NFL insider, has made his predictions for Lamb with the upcoming season only a few weeks away. It is clear that Breer expects big things from the Oklahoma product.
Breer wrote, “CeeDee lamb’s going to become a star.” “The best thing about his knowledge of the offense is that he can move around more freely from X to Z and F.” This is a huge deal for Mike McCarthy’s receivers.
5) WR CeeDee Lamb's going to be a star. The big thing is with his increased knowledge of the offense, he can be moved around from X to Z to F more freely. And that's a very important deal for receivers playing for Mike McCarthy.

Lamb discussed his mindset heading into his second NFL season during an interview earlier this offseason. He is hopeful that he will be able to take the next step in his career.
According to Calvin Watkins, Dallas Morning News, Lamb stated that he wants to concentrate on himself and being better for the team. The team will naturally get better. If you’d like, we have a completely new system. We hired a new defensive coordinator. We brought everyone back to offensive. It’s a new role. I want to be a better person than last year. To improve on last year’s performance and to have a positive mindset as a group.
Prescott should be able to return to full strength in time for the 2021 season. He will form an extraordinary one-two punch alongside Lamb.
