CeeDee Lamb will not play on Thursday when the Dallas Cowboys take on the Oakland Raiders on Thanksgiving, opening up more opportunities for Michael Gallup, Dalton Schultz and Cedric Wilson.
Lamb joins starting receiver Amari Cooper on the sidelines for the afternoon matchup. Lamb has a concussion and Cooper is on the COVID-19/Reserve list.
With a total in the 50s and a spread of more than a touchdown, expectations were high for Lamb. He would’ve been a top-10 wide receiver this week in fantasy football, but the late scratch changes things up.
Gallup will become the top receiver for the Cowboys in his third game back off the IR. Cedric Wilson becomes the No. 2 option on the depth chart, targets will open up for Schultz and the running game will become more important. That means more opportunities for Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard.
For fantasy managers wondering what to do with Dak Prescott’s new top targets this week, you’ve come to the right place.
Let’s see where our expert fantasy football analyst Sean Koerner places Gallup, Schultz and Co. in Week 12.
Michael Gallup, Dalton Schultz & Cedric Wilson Fantasy Football Rankings
With Lamb and Cooper out of the way, Gallup moves into the WR15 slot, according to Koerner’s rankings. That puts him ahead of Marquise Brown, Mike Williams and others.
Gallup has recorded 44 and 42 yards in each of his last two games, respectively.
Schultz was targeted just twice last week against the Atlanta Falcons, but he comes in as TE2 against the Raiders.
Meanwhile, deeper leagues may want to consider Wilson. Wilson is WR38 according to our consensus rankings, but Chris Raybon has him even higher than that.
