Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb said recently that he feels like “the jump is definitely there” as he heads into his second NFL season and he’s not the only person who feels like bigger things are coming in 2021.

Quarterback Dak Prescott only got to play five games with Lamb last season and said last week that he’s “so excited” about the growth he’s seen in the 2020 first-round pick during organized team activities. That growth has led to a prediction about what the future holds for Lamb.

“My expectations are super-high,” Prescott said, via SI.com. “I’m so excited for CeeDee. . . . He’s a special playmaker that we’re privileged to have and he’ll be big-time and definitely have a breakout season.”

Lamb was one of five Cowboys with at least 52 catches and all of them are back this season, so there’s no shortage of targets for Prescott to go with the ball. What that will mean for Lamb’s numbers after a 74-catch rookie season is unclear, but reaching Prescott’s expectations should make him a popular one.

  1. Every day it’s another Dallas player who is one of the best, if not the best, at his position.

    We’re going to hear this all Summer until they start playing games and reality kicks in. Just like every other year. I remember when getting Zeke’s contract ironed out was the missing piece and then he goes MIA for 2 years straight.

    Lamb is a good young receiver but there is only one football. The Cowboys were already throwing 40+ times a game last year, there will likely be even fewer targets available this year if they decide to run the ball.
