The Dallas Cowboys made a surprising move with their first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, adding even more wide receiver talent by drafting Oklahoma's CeeDee Lamb.

Lamb closed as the odds-on favorite to be the first receiver selected, so when he fell to Dallas at No. 17, they didn't hesitate to take him as the third wideout off the board.

FanDuel Sportsbook has released prop bets for Lamb's rookie year numbers, and they should have Cowboys fans hyped.

CeeDee Lamb Projections 2020

The over/under for Lamb's 2020 receiving yards has been set at 799.5, with his receiving TD line set at 4.5 (the over is a -138 favorite). That's the second-best yardage projection and third-best touchdown projection so far among this year's rookie WR class.

Those numbers are especially intriguing because of how much competition Lamb will have for touches. The Cowboys' offense is always going to look to stay balanced, feeding Ezekiel Elliott on the ground, and their receiving corps is stacked. Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup both eclipsed 1,100 on over 110 targets each in 2019.

The Cowboys' offense could be shaping up as one of the most dangerous in the NFL, and if these projections are any indication, Lamb is going to be a big part of that.
