Game day update: Coming off of the bye week, the Dallas Cowboys wide receivers get a chance to go against a beleaguered Vikings’ secondary that is young at the cornerback spots. This season, Minnesota’s defense is allowing an astounding 28.2 fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Amari Cooper should be in line for a productive outing, who has been targeted 18 times in Dallas’ last three games. CeeDee Lamb is right behind Cooper with 17 targets in that span of time. ESPN projects Cooper, Lamb, and Gallup to score 7.6, 6.8, and 6.0 fantasy points
I don’t know if you can technically call it good news when Andy Dalton is slated to return as the team’s starting quarterback. However, between that and a matchup with the Minnesota Vikings this week, things are looking better than they have in a long time for the fantasy football prospects of Dallas’ top three wide receivers.
Fantasy Football analysis: Dallas WRs Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, CeeDee Lamb
Cooper is still the best of the bunch, and the one most likely to post something close to No. 1 receiver stats in any given week. He had 67 yards last week, and posted decent games with Dalton as the starter.
Lamb has the highest upside of anyone here. The Vikings have struggled against slot receivers this year. He had 71 yards and a touchdown last week against the Steelers, despite the quarterback situation. Unfortunately for Gallup, the quarterback situation makes him the odd man out here.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. Sit Michael Gallup.
