Gets fifth-year option

The Cowboys exercised the fifth-year option on Lamb's rookie contract Thursday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Analysis: Teams have a deadline of May 1 to make such decisions with first-round picks from the 2020 Draft, and the 17th overall selection that year now is locked in in Dallas through the 2024 season. Lamb is coming off a second consecutive 1,000-yard campaign, having put together a 107-1,359-9 line on 156 targets in 17 games last season. He's also been plenty durable during his three-year career, missing just one of a possible 50 regular-season contests to date. After the Cowboys added Brandin Cooks to their receiving corps this offseason, Lamb may have even more room to operate in a Dak Prescott-led offense.

Salvages day with TD

Lamb caught five of seven targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 26-6 loss to the Commanders.

Analysis: The third-year wideout was the lone bright spot for the Dallas offense as it put together maybe its worst performance of the year. Lamb wraps up the regular season with career highs in catches (107), targets (156), receiving yards (1,359) and TDs (nine), and he'll likely need to come up big on the road in the wild-card round if the Cowboys are going to advance past the Buccaneers.

Another busy night Thursday

Lamb secured 11 of 14 targets for 100 yards in the Cowboys' 27-13 win over the Titans on Thursday night.

Analysis: Lamb comfortably led the Cowboys in receptions, receiving yards and targets on the night, repeatedly capitalizing on a very short-handed Titans defense. The third-year wideout's performance included his fifth 100-yard tally of 2022 and tied his season high in receptions, and it also put him over the 100-catch mark for the campaign. Lamb's final opportunity to tune up for the postseason comes in a Week road matchup versus the Commanders a week from Sunday.

Double-digit catches Saturday

Lamb secured 10 of 11 targets for 120 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys' 40-34 win over the Eagles on Saturday.

Analysis: Lamb paced the Cowboys' pass-catching corps across the board in what was a spectacular performance. The star wideout recorded 36- and seven-yard touchdown grabs in the second and fourth quarters, respectively, the second erasing a 34-27 deficit to cap off an eight-play, 75-yard drive. Lamb's pair of touchdowns give him a new career high of eight for the campaign and served as his second multi-score tally of the season. Lamb also has consecutive 100-yard efforts for the first time in 2022 heading into a favorable Week 17 road matchup against the Titans on Thursday night.

Perfect perfect against Jags

Lamb recorded a reception on all seven of his targets for 126 yards in Sunday's 40-34 loss to Jacksonville.

Analysis: Lamb was surprisingly out-targeted by Noah Brown in Sunday's loss, though he put together a far more efficient performance. Lamb ripped through the Jaguars' secondary for long gains on 39, 25, and 22 yards on his way third 100-yard performance of the season and in his last six games. The only thing missing from his effort was a trip to the end zone, though Lamb still needs just one more touchdown to reach a career high.

Disappears against Texans

Lamb recorded five receptions on six targets for 33 yards in Sunday's 27-23 win over the Texans.

Analysis: The Cowboys came into the game as heavy favorites and operated as such, focusing on establishing the rushing attack. However, the Texans hung around and held a small lead for the majority of the game, which forced Dallas to open up its offense. Even so, Lamb couldn't get going and had to settle for a 13-yard reception as his longest gain of the game. Lamb's yardage was his second-lowest of the season and worst output since Week 1.

Dec 11, 2022 2:16 PM EST

Shines on SNF

Lamb corralled five of seven targets for 71 yards and a touchdown while adding 23 rushing yards on two carries in Sunday's 54-19 win over the Colts.

Analysis: Lamb led the Cowboys in receiving and had his way with the Colts' banged up secondary. Dallas' star wideout could have had an even bigger game had Indianapolis kept the score closer in the second half of this lopsided affair. Lamb is closing in on his second consecutive 1,000-yard season with a 69/938/6 receiving line through 12 games. The Cowboys will take on the 1-9-1 Texans on Sunday, giving Lamb another prime opportunity to take advantage of weak opponent in Week 14.

Tops century mark against Giants

Lamb caught six of 11 targets for 106 yards in Thursday's 28-20 win over the Giants.

Analysis: He added 11 rushing yards on two carries. Lamb, and the entire Dallas offense, had a sluggish first half, heading into the locker room down 13-7. The receiver got going after intermission though and nearly hauled in a two-yard TD midway through the fourth quarter, but he couldn't quite get both feet in bounds at the back of the end zone. It was Lamb's second 100-yard game of the season, both of which have come in the last three weeks, and he'll take plenty of momentum into a Week 13 matchup against the Colts.

Low usage in blowout win

Lamb caught all five of his targets for 45 yards in Sunday's 40-3 blowout victory over the Vikings.

Analysis: Lamb was able to haul in 100 percent of the passes thrown his way for the first time this season, but the five targets also marked a season low. The 23-year-old was used sparingly due to a crooked score and a combined four touchdowns from Dallas' running backs. The game got so out of hand that head coach Mike McCarthy was able to pull all of the starters for the fourth quarter, also adding to Lamb's suppressed output this week. The Cowboys' star wideout could be in line for a big game on Thanksgiving against a Giants team that may be without both of its top corners Thursday.

Breaks century mark with two scores

Lamb corralled 11 of 15 targets for 150 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 31-28 overtime loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Lamb finally broke the century mark in receiving yards for the first time in 2022 after coming close on a couple occasions. Dallas' star wideout also tallied his first double-digit reception and multi-score game in this monster fantasy performance. The 23-year-old now carries a healthy 53/706/5 line through nine contests, putting him well on pace for career highs in all three categories. Lamb will look to build off of his best showing of the season in a favorable matchup against a vulnerable Minnesota secondary next Sunday.

Scores, records 77 yards

Lamb recorded five receptions on seven targets for 77 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 49-29 win over the Bears.

Analysis: Lamb narrowly beat out Dalton Schultz to lead Dallas in receiving yards, and he now has 13 targets combined in the two games since Dak Prescott has returned. Lamb's performance was highlighted by receptions of 22 and 21 yards -- the latter of which went for his third touchdown of the season. He has still yet to surpass the century mark in a game this season, but Lamb has at least 70 yards in five of eight contests.

Team-high receiving yardage Sunday

Lamb brought in four of six targets for 70 yards and netted minus-4 yards on one carry in the Cowboys' 24-6 win over the Lions on Sunday.

Analysis: Lamb's receiving yardage total was a team high, while his reception tally was second behind only the team-high five catches secured by Noah Brown and Dalton Schultz. Lamb's first game back with Dak Prescott didn't result in better numbers than he compiled in a couple of his games with Cooper Rush under center, but the third-year receiver naturally should have a chance to reignite his chemistry with the talented quarterback the more they play together moving forward.

Logs full practice Thursday

Lamb (hip) practiced fully Thursday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Lamb hurt his hip prior to the Cowboys' Week 6 matchup with the Eagles, but he still suited up this past Sunday, hauling in five of 10 targets for 68 yards and turning two carries into nine yards. While he opened Week 7 prep with a limited session, he told Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News after Thursday's practice that he was a "full go," which was confirmed on the team's ensuing injury report. Lamb thus is set to serve as Dak Prescott's No. 1 option in the passing game Sunday versus the Lions, with the quarterback expected to put an end to a five-game absence due to a broken right thumb.

Oct 20, 2022 1:21 PM EST

Ready to play Sunday

Lamb (hip) said he was "full go" in Thursday's practice and is set to start against Detroit on Sunday, the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken reports.

Analysis: Lamb was only limited in Wednesday's practice, so his words imply he was a full participant Thursday. So long as he avoids setbacks between Thursday and Sunday he should be at or close to 100 percent for a favorable matchup against the Lions.

Oct 20, 2022 12:47 PM EST

Still tending to hip issue

Lamb was limited at practice Wednesday by a hip injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Lamb was a late addition to the Cowboys' Week 6 practice report, being tabbed as a non-participant last Friday with the aforementioned hip concern. It didn't stop him from playing this past Sunday at Philadelphia and turning 10 targets into five catches for 68 yards and two carries into nine yards. Even if he heads into this weekend with a game-day designation, Lamb doesn't seem in danger of missing Sunday's contest against the Lions, and he's also in line to be on the receiving end of passes from Dak Prescott instead of Cooper Rush after the former gained medical clearance from the broken right thumb that has sidelined him Weeks 2-6.

Oct 19, 2022 2:38 PM EST

Gains 77 yards on seven touches

Lamb (hip) had five receptions on 10 targets for 68 yards while adding nine yards on two rush attempts in Sunday's 26-17 loss to the Eagles.

Analysis: Lamb's fantasy managers suffered a late-week scare when the star wideout was added to the injury report with a hip injury at Friday's practice. The 23-year-old was expected to play based on early reports Sunday, and he followed through and provided solid production. Lamb added his second and third rushing attempts of the season, but his efficiency (5.0 YPC) is lacking compared to his sporadic usage as a rusher over his first two seasons (8.3 YPC). Cowboys star quarterback Dak Prescott (thumb) could return as soon as next Sunday's tilt against Detroit, but Lamb has proven that he can still be relied upon even if backup Cooper Rush is forced to make another start.

Oct 16, 2022 11:18 PM EST

Playing Sunday, as expected

Lamb (hip) is active for Sunday's contest at Philadelphia.

Analysis: After sitting out Friday's practice due to a previously unknown hip issue, Lamb was termed questionable for Week 6 action. Still, there was an expectation that he'd play, which was supported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network on Sunday morning. With his status now confirmed, Lamb again will be the focus of the Cowboys' passing game, but he'll be on the receiving end of passes from Cooper Rush instead of Dak Prescott (thumb), the latter of whom may be able to return Week 7 against the Lions. While working with Rush over the last four outings, Lamb has put together a cumulative 26-312-2 line on 39 targets.

Oct 16, 2022 3:57 PM EST

Expected to play Sunday

Lamb (hip) should play Sunday night against the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Lamb was added to the Cowboys' Week 6 injury report Friday, but it appears that he's trending toward active status Sunday night, unlike QB Dak Prescott (thumb). Official confirmation of the wideout's status will arrive when Dallas' inactives are posted ahead of the team's 8:20 ET kickoff.

Oct 16, 2022 7:30 AM EST

Added to injury report Friday

Lamb (hip) was added to the injury report Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, though he's still expected to play, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Cowboys are no friend to fantasy managers this week, with Lamb a late addition and QB Dak Prescott (thumb) surprisingly listed as questionable. The 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff further complicates things, but there's always the possibility of weekend reports that provide further clarity by Sunday morning/afternoon. If Lamb were to miss the contest, Michael Gallup and Noah Brown would get big boosts in target share projection, while either Simi Fehoko and Jalen Tolbert would take the No. 3 role. The Cowboys reportedly don't expect it to come to that, figuring Lamb's mid-week hip injury will be okay after he was held out of Friday's practice to rest it.

Oct 14, 2022 1:13 PM EST

Five grabs against Rams

Lamb caught five of eight targets for 53 yards in Sunday's 22-10 win over the Rams.

Analysis: The Dallas passing game never really needed to get going in this one, but Lamb was on the other end of exactly half of Cooper Rush's attempts and completions. It was still Lamb's weakest production in any of Rush's four starts, and the third-year wideout will likely need to be a lot more productive in what has shaped up to be a huge Week 6 matchup against the Eagles.
