CeeDee Lamb will be inactive for the Dallas Cowboys Thursday in their matchup against the Raiders. Lamb was listed as questionable this week due to a concussion. He did not practice for two days but did log a limited session Wednesday.

Even with a limited practice session Wednesday, Lamb ultimately could not clear the NFL’s concussion protocol. The Cowboys are now down him and Amari Cooper in this game against the Raiders, which certainly hurts Dak Prescott’s fantasy upside. Michael Gallup gets a boost though as Dallas’ top receiver, and fantasy managers might toy with the idea of playing Cedrick Wilson as a flex. Dalton Schultz is also going to see some additional targets with Lamb out. Overall, Dallas’ offense needs to recover in a big way after a Week 11 dud against Kansas City. Let’s see if the Cowboys can get things moving in the right direction even with Lamb out.
