2. Reach 1,500 receiving yards

This is a lofty goal, but it’s one he can achieve given the circumstances. Lamb has been a machine in the receiving yards category through the first two years of his career. This graphic even puts him in the record books with the likes of Larry Fitzgerald and Randy Moss,

He has even put up these numbers with five different quarterbacks. I think it is fair to assume Lamb will set a new career-high in receiving yards this upcoming season. Last season, Lamb had 1,102 yards and received only 120 targets. That number of targets was 21st in the league. His targets should go up substantially now that he is the WR1. His 20.4% target share was 36th in the league, a number that should also skyrocket.

His opportunities should go up across the board. With targets, route runs, and snap percentage all set for a giant increase. The breakout season we have been expecting from Lamb is on the way and it should be fun to watch.
