More lines continue to be posted at DraftKings Sportsbook ahead of the 2020 NFL betting season. As more players sign their rookie deals and begin for their first year in the league, legal online sportsbooks are beginning to post upcoming player total lines for the year.
Here are a few that are currently available at DraftKings Sportsbook:

There was not a more dominant defensive player in college football than Chase Young a season ago at Ohio State.

Last year in college, Young finished with 16.5 sacks in just 12 games. Meanwhile in Washington, Matthew Ioanidis lead the team in sacks with 8.5. Young immediately becomes the most talented player on the defensive line, and should get close to that 8.5 line fairly easily.
Joe Burrow Over/Under 21.5 Touchdowns
— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) April 27, 2020
Last season, Burrow threw for 60 touchdowns at LSU. He’s not going to sniff anywhere near that, let alone 50% of that number in his first season. However, he does have solid options around him on offense in Tyler Boyd, a hopefully healthy AJ Green, and possibly using Joe Mixon more out of the backfield. The Bengals are going to be bad as they continue to rebuild in Cincinnati, but I think Burrow can hit the over thanks to some late garbage time opportunities once the game has already been decided.
Jerry Jeudy / Justin Jefferson Over/Under 750.5 Rec. Yards
The line for Jeudy may not seem fascinating from the initial glance, but Jeudy’s original line across many sportsbooks was up near 850.5. Now it’s down a full 100 yards with even odds on both sides. While he’s considered to be the top possession receiver in the draft, the Broncos will have plenty of options for Drew Lock to get the ball to, both in the receiving game with Jeudy, Courtland Sutton, KJ Hamler and Noah Fant, as well as in the running game with Melvin Gordon and Philip Lindsay.
As for Jefferson, he’s likely to take over the spot vacated by Stefon Diggs who was traded to Buffalo earlier this offseason. Jeudy may be the more talented offensive player, but Jefferson may see more targets thrown his way purely out of necessity.

CeeDee Lamb / Jalen Reagor: Over/Under 700.5 Receiving Yards:
Much like the Jerry Jeudy line, Jalen Reagor’s totals have fallen quite a bit as well.
The Jalen Reagor 2020 total receiving yards market is all over the place.
FOX Bet: 774.5

Now that DK has gone to 700.5, are we still as tempted to take the over? My inclination is no, considering how often Carson Wentz spreads the ball around in the Eagles offense, as well as the continued improvement of Miles Sanders in the passing game. Reagor has a chance to be a great big play weapon for Philly, but with Alshon Jeffrey, DeSean Jackson, Marquise Goodwin and John Hightower all involved, there might not be enough volume for him to hit the over.
As for Lamb, it’s a similar argument in Dallas. Dak Prescott was second in passing yards/game a season ago with both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup finishing in the Top 20 in receiving yards with 1,189 and 1,107 respectively. Lamb will see opportunities in the slot and with his breakaway speed, could have a chance to carry the over perhaps earlier than expected. There’s plenty of quality options that will want the ball, but with Randall Cobb going for 828 in the same role last year, I think Lamb is set up nicely for the over.
