1. 10+ receiving touchdowns

This number may seem low to some but Lamb only has 11 touchdowns through the first two seasons of his career. I expect No. 88 to turn into a touchdown machine this season, something we have seen for many years from players wearing that same number.

There is no doubt Lamb will be more of a focal point in the red zone this season. He had 10 red-zone targets last year, that number put him outside the top 50 in the league. Even Ezekiel Elliott had more red-zone targets than Lamb last year with 14. I expect Lamb to see double the amount of red-zone targets this year as he becomes Dak Prescott’s go-to guy in the big spots.

Lamb should continue to have success playing both outside and in the slot. He can attack defenses from so many positions that it will only increase his impact on the game. Watch for offensive coordinator Kellen Moore to get the ball into Lamb’s hands in a bunch of creative ways to maximize his skills with the ball in his hands.
