Player Side Predictions: Lamb's Over… for everything
CeeDee Lamb has been one of the most consistent and dominant receivers in the NFL. Green Bay could use Jaire Alexander to shadow Brem, but they will likely use a zone-heavy scheme to contain Dallas' pass attack. That could spell trouble for the Packers and pay off for those betting on Lamb.
Last year against this Green Bay defense, Lahm had 11 receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns. I know his stuff is full of wind, but he's one of the best options to go today.

Player Support Predictions: Cook Anytime Touchdown
While Lemm dominates targets in Dallas' passing attack, he can also face a lot of Alexander. This could create more profitable opportunities for Brandin Cooks, especially in the red zone. He has five red-zone touchdowns on just eight red-zone targets since Week 8 and has scored twice outside of the red zone since then. He has been a touchdown producer this season.
Brandin Cooks Anytime Touchdown +220
Player Support Predictions: Hayes over receiving yards
Jaden Reed has a 112-yard rush against the Bears in Week 18. While it was the only time Reed had more than 100 yards receiving in a game, it wasn't his only time of 48 yards. He has surpassed this mark in three consecutive games and in nine of his 18 games. Reid has had at least 52 yards or 10 carries in his past four games, and even if Christian Watson returns today, the rookie will still have opportunities to produce.
