Say 'Cee Ya' to CeeDee Lamb



I think what happened on Monday night for anyone who has Ceedee Lamb was great - one, he had a solid week for you (hopefully helped you get the dub), but he also provided you with a nice point total for the game log so you can now go shop him. I don’t see any signs that things are getting better for CeeDee - what do I mean?


He performed by catching all 7 of his targets, but those 7 targets made up only 23% target share - this year, CeeDee has a 22% target share for the season. Last year, he was at 29%. This year, CeeDee is at a 28% air yard share; last year, he was at 35%. Looking at the last 3-year WR1 utilization averages provided by Dwain McFarland over at FantasyLife.com, he was getting WR1 usage last year. This year, his target share and air yards share is indicative of a fantasy WR2.


It’s very possible he’s still being viewed as someone who can bounce back and get that usage back up - maybe, but check out these target shares for this season: he had that one 35% target share game in Week 2, but otherwise - 17%, 19%, 17%, 19%, and then 23% on Monday night. You’re not going to be able to get many elite games from CeeDee, and someone might think they’re buying a WR1 low, so I’d try and sell him now off of this game - let them feel the same pain you’ve been feeling with CeeDee over the first 6 games of this year.
