On Sunday, we’ll see two of the league’s top rookies in the Vikings and Cowboys game.

Minnesota has Justin Jefferson, who was drafted with the 22nd overall pick, while Dallas has CeeDee Lamb, the 17th pick.

Here’s how to two compare to each other so far this season:

Jefferson: 42 catches, 762 yards, 3 touchdowns
Lamb: 44 catches, 595 yards, 3 touchdowns

Jefferson has been one of the best receivers in the entire league this season, regardless of experience. Lamb started the season off with two 100-yard games in the first five weeks, but since Dak Prescott’s injury, Lamb hasn’t totaled more than 71 yards in a game.

Both receivers should have plenty of opportunities on Sunday. The Vikings rank 27th against the pass while the Cowboys rank last in total points allowed this season.
