Holdout Could Be Coming For CeeDee Lamb

Monday, April 8, 2:01 PM

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken suggests that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb could be absent from offseason workouts this month as he seeks a new long-term contract from the team. If the two sides don't come to an agreement on a new deal this offseason, Lamb is in line to play the 2024 campaign on his fifth-year option, which would pay him $17.99 million. Holding out wouldn't start costing the 25-year-old until June, but it could happen. Fantasy football managers probably won't be concerned unless Lamb isn't present during training camp this summer. He's made the Pro Bowl each of the last three seasons and was a first-team All-Pro in 2023 after setting career-highs in catches (135), targets (181), receiving yards (1,749) and touchdowns (12) in 17 regular-season starts. Lamb is a no-doubt WR1 in fantasy.

Packers Gather More Data On Christian Watson's Injury

Tuesday, March 26, 10:44 PM

The Green Bay Packers feel that they have a better grasp of where wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) stands after he underwent a body scan at the University of Wisconsin-Madison this offseason with the hope of preventing future flare-ups. Watson has battled hamstring injuries in both of his two seasons in the NFL, with the 6-foot-4, 208-pounder missing eight games in 2023, playing just 446 offensive snaps. It hasn't just been hamstring injuries for the 24-year-old, and he's played in only 23 games in his first two seasons to quickly develop an injury-prone label. But when healthy, he's caught 69 of 119 targets for 1,033 yards and 12 touchdowns, adding two rushing scores. There's intriguing upside given the nature of Green Bay's improving offense under quarterback Jordan Love, but Watson's durability makes him a risk/reward fantasy selection heading into his third year.
