Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb, S Malik Hooker and rookie S Israel Mukuamu are the three players added to COVID-19 protocol.
In addition defensive coordinator Dan Quinn and defensive tackle Carlos Watkins were added to the list last week. Beat writer Calvin Watkins tweeted a source told him Lamb is vaccinated. The Cowboys had virtual player meetings on Monday, it was reported.
Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is enjoying his increased work in slot. “That’s a whole different route tree than playing outside. ...Everybody labels me as just a ‘deep-ball threat,’ but I know I can do a whole lot more.” Been focused on route-running, conceptual details this camp.
Gehlken went on to tweet that all three Cowboy WRs can play from the slot, which will add a new wrinkle to the offense. As Gallup said, corners won't be able to follow anyone and will have to change up the defense. Gallup could have some later-round fantasy value with his ranking of 49th and an ADP of the ninth round in 12-team leagues.
Cooper said he has been 225 the past three seasons. Cooper’s goal is to have best season of his football career. Not just words, he said. Actions been intentional, the tweet all said. For fantasy purposes, he may be trying to hold off CeeDee Lamb, who is getting drafted ahead of Cooper in some leagues.
There is a significant gap between CeeDee Lamb and everyone else. He’s having the best camp of anyone on the roster. When coach Mike McCarthy talks about noticing several second-year players making the leap in Year 2, Lamb has to be at the top of the list. Every practice seems to include at least one impressive Lamb highlight to go along with a handful of other noteworthy plays that he makes look effortless.
Lamb is a popular pick when it comes to wide receivers who are ready to make a huge jump. We rank Lamb 14th, right behind Amari Cooper at 13. While Lamb is the guy going before Cooper, we're not totally convinced that's the right call. In four games last year with Dak Prescott under center, Cooper out-targeted Lamb 23.4 to 16.7.
