2. CeeDee Lamb gets 15 receptions, 150 yards

A major issue that crept up following the loss to Miami was the usage, or lack thereof, of CeeDee Lamb. The incredible wideout had 93 yards on just four touches in the first quarter. Then, he didn't see the ball again for the next four drives.

Once Dallas started to target him again near the end of the game, they unsurprisingly started to move the chains. They even briefly took the lead but the defense was unable to hold off the Dolphins. After the game, Lamb didn't hold back when he was asked about being ghosted saying that it was his own team that limited him.

"They weren't doing anything. I feel like if I’m gonna be involved, keep me involved," Lamb said, via Nick Harris of DallasCowboys.com. "It was weird, that second and third quarter. Very weird ... Started off the game hot. I went absent. That’s why it was weird."

On the year, Lamb has 109 receptions for 1,424 yards and nine touchdowns plus another 101 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. All of those numbers are career highs and it's no secret that the entire team is better the more he's involved.

That's why he should be targeted early and often in Week 17. This bold prediction has that formula leading to a lot of success with Lamb hauling in 15 passes for at least 150 yards.
