Last year, CeeDee Lamb was looking like he would be the best rookie receiver in the NFL, until a gruesome knee injury took his starting quarterback away from him. With Dak Prescott coming back this season, Lamb could be in store for a massive campaign.

Here, we’ll take a look at the prop bets on the table for Dallas Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb on DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2021 NFL season and make our picks.

1050.5 receiving yards: Over (-140) or Under (+110)

Our pick: Over

Through Week 5 of the 2020 season, Lamb had 433 yards, which was just under half his season total. Prescott went down in that week and Lamb saw his targets and production dip rapidly when Andy Dalton was under center. The Cowboys have a solid WR corps, but Lamb proved in the early part of last season that he can be a major contributor. If Prescott stays healthy the whole season, expect him to smash this number.

6.5 receiving touchdowns: Over (-115) or Under (-115)

Our pick: Over

Through the first five weeks of his NFL career, he had two scores. Then Prescott went out and he notched just three more the rest of the season. Obviously, the pass catchers in Dallas are all very good, so there are only so many passes to go around. Still, with Prescott back, even if he averages just two TDs every five weeks like he was with the starter, that will still hit the over. It’s only logical to think that he’s gotten more comfortable after his first five weeks in the league and should be able to click and be even more productive with Dak once the 2021 season gets rolling.
