What to do with Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb in Week 5 fantasy football

Dallas has three very good receivers who could all be of use in fantasy football this week.

UPDATE: For those wondering, it does not appear Amari Cooper is hurt. He has only been targeted once in the game, but there are no reports of him leaving the game. CeeDee Lamb leads the Cowboys with five receptions for 81 yards. Michael Gallup has one reception for eights yards. Cedrick Wilson has four receptions for 22 yards and an 11-yard touchdown pass on a Philly Special pass to Dak Prescott.

One thing is for sure about the Cowboys, there is no shortage of work for the team’s wide receivers. No team throws the ball more than Dallas, and the Cowboys also lead the league with an average north of 400 passing yards per game. That makes their wide receivers very attractive for fantasy football.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb

Cooper is the unquestioned leader of the pack here. He leads the team with 51 targets and 401 receiving yards. An average of 100 yards per game makes him a must-start guy against any opponent.

Lamb is on fire lately. He’s coming off a two-touchdown game against the Browns, and has recorded 250 yards in his last three games. He’s getting the looks from Dak Prescott, which makes him a solid starter this week, and not a bad value in DFS at $6,000 in DraftKings leagues. Gallup is more up and down in his games. He has just 29 yards last week, but broke out for 138 yards and a touchdown in the game before that.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Cooper, Lamb, and Gallup.
