    I’m going with over.

    2019 - Four players with over 50 catches
    2018 - Three players with over 50 catches
    2017 - Three players with over 50 catches
    2016 - Three players with over 50 catches

    Dak has always had three guys over 50 and usually one is in the 35-45 range.

    I see Cooper, Gallup and Lamb going over 50.

    Jarwin in the 40-50 range with Zeke / Pollard getting some catches.

    Over. I think he has a Bryantesque rookie year, and Bryant had 45 in 12 games. Where he might go under is where Gallup is a much better #2 than RW was. Williams wasnt even the real #2, he was just the starter.

    Bryant was on pace for exactly 60 catches as rookie. I think Lamb will get just under that

    40 receptions for 590 yards (let's say) would demonstrate pretty significant explosion. That's 14.75 ypc. Only 22 players in the entire NFL (that's less than one per team, although 3 of them were on the Cowboys) averaged more than 14.75 ypc last year.

    I think you are in the right ballpark. Cobb had 55 for 828 and he missed a game. I also see Lamb doing more work outside as well as the slot which I think will give him more opportunities.

    Under, First year WRs tend to take a year to get to that level. Add that to him being #3 on depth chart, I just don’t see it.

    Cobb went 55-828-3 last year.

    Lamb should at least match those numbers.

    Under. But barely just under.

    Dak has chemistry with Cooper and Gallup, and Jarwin on a limited basis.

    CDL should make plays his rookie year but it's also a big jump for almost every drafted player going from CFB to NFL. Add in possible delays to you know what and just getting used to the speed of the NFL, I can see a "slow" start and then a nice uptick as the season goes on.

    Now, if MM goes all Adam Gase and uses CDL like Jarvis Landry, then he'll be over easy.
    But with the run game the Cowboys have, I don't see MM force feeding CDL footballs at the LOS to get yards.

    First year WR usually dont make a huge splash. Especially when they play on a team with 2 really good WR already. We will see how good of a groove he gets in with Dak.

    Not your average rookie receiver.

    50 catches on the year is a little over three catches a game. If we play a three WR set as our base, I expect Lamb to get about 65 catches and average about 55 yards a game.

    65 catches.
    6 TD's.
    896 yards.

    So that's an "over" for me. And a waaaaay "over" if Coop or Gallup miss time.

    You have to wonder where the balls are coming from. There are too many weapons on this team.

    Yet I’m still going with the over because I think that Gallup’s numbers are going way down. CeeDee can do it all - he can run every route on the field. The kid scored every 4th time he touched the ball.

    Riley was really good about getting him the ball coming out of the backfield and I hope we see that same play in Dallas this year.

    Good question and think 50 is probably the magic number. I see 45-55 catches for 600ish yards.

    I think he will have a great rookie season but under 50 receptions, probably somewhere around 750-900 yards. Keep in mind, even the best WRs as rookies struggle a little to adjust to the pro game. NFL talent and coverages are head and shoulders better than college competition.

    By season’s end, Cedee Lamb will be one of the NFLs most explosive weapons. But it may take him half a season to get used to the upgrade in skill and complexity of the NFL game.

    slightly under (45 feels right) but the yardage and impact of those catches could be larger than normal.

    Yep I would say 50 to 60 range. Last year the Cowboys had 4 50+ catch WR/TE + Elliott.

    If will be interesting to see if they "force" to ball his way.

    Over is most likely however of passes headed his way I'm interested in the INT vs big play (plus 20 yards ) ratio.

    63 receptions
