CeeDee Lamb (concussion) has been a solid fantasy producer this year, but he suffered a concussion last week and was reportedly out of action for the Thursday afternoon game of Week 12. head-to-head in the Raiders-Cowboys Thanksgiving, Lamb’s is only listed as “questionable,” so there’s a chance he’ll play. Their fantasy-starting decisions around Lamb, Michael Gallup, and even Cedrick Wilson keep their balance while we wait for the latest injury updates.
We will continue to update this article with Lamb up news until the official active/inactive report is released on Thursday. For all the latest fantasy updates, follow us on Twitter @SN_Fosystem.
Does CeeDee Lamb Play on Thanksgiving?
Earlier in the week, Mike McCarthy said Lamb has a chance against the Raiders, so his concussion must be “small”, if so, and we’ll probably have to wait until just before the game starts. . Thursday afternoon match to see if he can go. Latest news said Lamb “on track” to play after he trains on Wednesday, but we won’t make any final decisions until we know for sure.
However, we do know that concussion is often a complete or non-traumatic type of trauma. He clears protocols and is not limited or he doesn’t play at all. That makes the fantasy owner’s life easier. If he’s in the lineup, he’s seen as the man to start despite the tough game against Las Vegas. The Raiders gave the WRs the fourth least fantasy score per game, but Amari Cooper (sub/COVID) ran out and Lamb had to start even though Cooper was on the roster. Plus, the Raiders have largely avoided playing top tier WRs this season, so we don’t view its defense as the Patriots or Bills.
Michael Gallup has been a strong flexibility candidate since Cooper’s absence, but if Lamb is absent, Gallup is a much-needed start. Let’s put it this way – whoever is Dak Prescott’s #1 WR should be on the roster. However, Cedrick Wilson’s imaginary scenario was entirely dependent on Lamb’s condition. Yes, you could technically start Wilson as a low-level flexer regardless, but he’ll perform much better if Lamb can’t go. He caught three touchdowns in Michael Gallup’s absence earlier this season, so we know Prescott trusts him and isn’t afraid to look his way.
In the end, it’s a long-winded way of saying that you should start using Lamb and Gallup if they’re working and consider Wilson if Lamb isn’t. See Lamb as a WR1 if he’s active and see Gallup as an intermediate WR2 if he’s not, with Wilson coming in as a versatile option.
