The Cowboys had yet another disappointing ending to their season last year, but fans should be hopeful as these players are poised for big years in 2022.

Cowboys fans are understandably frustrated after another bad playoff loss last season, but the talent on their team is undeniable on both sides of the ball. If the team can put it together, they have the talent to go farther than a loss in the Wild Card round.

The Cowboys have a few players who have the potential to win awards in 2022, and this will go a long way in ensuring the team has a more successful season than last year.

3 best award candidates for the Dallas Cowboys in 2022

3. CeeDee Lamb, WR — Offensive Player of the Year

CeeDee Lamb’s first two seasons in the NFL have been explosive. His first year, catching 74 passes for 935 yards and five touchdowns, caught the eyes of Cowboys fans and NFL fans alike, as he lived up to what everyone expected him to be after he fell to the team in the first round.

Even with Amari Cooper on his team for the last two seasons, he’s managed to become Dak Prescott’s go-to target. Last season saw him have an even better statistical year, catching 79 balls for 1,102 yards and six touchdowns. His yardage ranked 16th among all receivers, but that number is only expected to grow in 2022 with Cooper’s departure to Cleveland and fellow wideout Michael Gallup battling an injury.

Lamb is poised for a career year, and if he can put it together, combined with another massive passing season for Prescott, he should fight for the top of the wide receiver rankings in ’22, making him a sneaky candidate for Offensive Player of the Year.
