Forget being the premier wide receiving corps in the NFC East, the Dallas Cowboys can make a case as the deepest and most gifted group of receivers in the NFL.

Lamb, as a rookie, emerged as the Cowboys’ premier wide receiver by catching 74 passes for 935 yards and five touchdowns, despite a rotating cast of suboptimal backup quarterbacks following Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury in Week 5.

However, while Lamb might be the headliner of this group, Amari Cooper is a legitimate No. 1 receiver who would start on every other team in the league. Cooper came 75 yards of tying his career-high in receiving yards in 2020, catching 92 passes for 1,114 yards and five touchdowns.

Rounding out this group is Michael Gallup, who would likely be one of the top-two receivers on most teams across the NFL.

If Prescott can stay healthy in 2021, the Cowboys are a fringe Super Bowl contender in the NFC, but this is a group capable of producing three 1,000-plus yard wide receivers with him at the helm.
