    I think the big thing I'd look for Lamb to get better at is the YAC. He wasn't nearly as good after the catch as he was in college.

    Think an NFL offseason will help a lot in that regard - since he doesn't even turn 22 until April.

    I think people are going to hold his numbers against him, but his upside is still higher than any other WR in the draft last year.

    Great rookie season but he dropped far too many passes last season, he needs to clean that up!

    He didn't face that Longhorn defense every week in the NFL. LOL

    If Dak was his qb he'd looked a lot better...(runs away)

    Jefferson had 1400 yards and 8 TDs I believe. That was with Kirk as his QB. Lamb is gonna be a stud as well.

    I still watch those Eagles reaction videos when the Cowboys took Lamb.
    I would post them but too much profanity :)

    He got screwed over with his quarterbacks. I still think he's a better prospect than Justin Jefferson. But that means nothing if he doesn't show it on the field.

    My goodness...FINALLY, somebody sees exactly what I saw..huge disappointment in this area..Great season, future is very bright, but big letdown in yac..

    Side note- I forget who it was, but somebody on this board was raving about Lambs yac as a rookie..all I could do was laugh..

    Dak's low arching fastballs play a part in our receivers drops and our redzone struggles.

    I think around 4 dropped TDs. 2 fumbles.

    But just great, efficient production. 8.4ypt, 8.2ypc, 67% catch rate.

    The splits over the year are even more encouraging.

    Right out of the gate with Dak, first 4 games, 10.6ypt. Big lull in the next 4 games with Dalton in and out of the lineup. Once Dalton settled in for Dec, last 4 games 11.38ypt.

    Those are pro bowl numbers if you sustain them for a year.

    Lamb *did* look a lot better with Dak. Lamb had Pro Bowl level production and efficiency in the 1st 4 games. And a big 5th game too, though I'm too lazy to factor out the Dak vs. Dalton split. The first 4 games projected over a full season would have been 1236 yards at 10.7ypt.

    Lamb will have better numbers with a full season of Dak at QB.

    I think Lamb is off to a good start. Two things I want to see from #88 are: 1) Off-season improvement - i.e. Faster, Stronger, Smarter. 2) I want to see CeeDee line up on the outside vs Top CBs, and see how he stacks up.
