Week 7 Review
Near bounce back in Week 7, Russell Wilson threw for almost 400 yards and D.K. Metcalf came away with just 23, his fewest since a Week 15 matchup with Arizona last season. In Cincinnati, Joe Burrow blew past his 241.5 total by 165 yards, while Baker Mayfield went over on his final two passes Sunday, including the game-winner to Donovan Peoples-Jones.
Finishing two of five on Sunday dropped our season total by $5; we currently sit at $265.
With a mass of injuries across the NFL, 16 rookies wide receivers, four rookie running backs, and four rookie quarterbacks are set to start in Week 8. We are going back to the well on 2-for-2 More/Less Props, keying on trends and juicy matchups.
No. 1) Indianapolis @ Detroit: More or Less
Prop: Kenny Golladay Over 4.5 Receptions, Jonathan Taylor over 71.5 Yards.
During the bye week, teams like to take a look back at the first portion of games to see what worked and what didn’t. In Indianapolis, getting Jonathan Taylor involved was a major key. In four wins, Taylor has had at least 12 carries or 60 yards rushing. He has finished with just 22 and 57 yards in Colts losses.
Since returning from injury in Week 3, Kenny Golladay has averaged seven targets, five receptions, and 84.5 yards per game. In Week 7, Cincinnati moved Tee Higgins around the formation to get him away from Xavier Rhodes, and he still finished with a 5-71-1 stat line.
No. 2) New York Jets @ Kansas City: More or Less
Prop: Denzel Mims Over 3.5 Receptions, Tyreek Hill Over 66.5 yards.
The Law of Conservation of targets leads us to Denzel Mims. New York is playing without its three Week 1 starters, Jamison Crowder, Chris Hogan, and Breshad Perriman. The targets have to go somewhere, and in Mims’ debut, he secured four receptions on seven targets. Smash the More button.
After a hot start in Weeks 1-4, Tyreek Hill had cooled off, finishing with just one touchdown over the last three and surpassing 60 yards just once. That changes in Week 8 when Hill draws the No. 28-ranked defense against wide receivers in yards.
No. 3) Tennessee @ Cincinnatti: More or Less
Prop: Derrick Henry Over 100.5 Yards, Tyler Boyd Over 68.5 yards.
The most dominant running back in the NFL today, Derrick Henry is No. 1 since 2018 with 3,262 total rushing yards. So far in 2020, Henry averages 28 carries and 117 rushing yards per game on the road. Coupled with Cincinnati’s inability to stop the run, ranking No. 28 and allowing 113 yards per game, Henry is a smash on Sunday.
On the flip side, Tyler Boyd has taken the reigns as the most heavily used receiver in Cincinnati. Boyd is averaging seven receptions per game while manning the slot and has failed to hit the 68-yard mark just three times this season – all in games he missed the seven-reception mark. In Week 8, Boyd will face Chris Jackson, who is replacing the No. 105-ranked player on the PlayerProfiler cornerback rankings in Kristian Fulton.
No. 4) San Francisco @ Seattle: More or Less
Prop: Russell Wilson Over 303.5 Yards, Jimmy Garoppolo Over 265.5 yards.
In 2020, Russell Wilson has surpassed 310 passing yards in four games. Though in 16 career games against San Francisco, Wilson has never thrown for over 260 yards. This is the Contrarian Prop of the Week, with all but DeeJay Dallas injured in the Seahawks backfield. Wilson will again be asked to “cook” against a battered 49ers defense. While PlayerProfiler’s No. 2-ranked cornerback Jason Verrett takes on D.K. Metcalf, Jamar Taylor is manning the slot and is ranked No. 110 among cornerbacks. Expect the Tyler Lockett connection to stay hot on Sunday.
While Wilson struggles against San Francisco, Jimmy Garoppolo has played Seattle just twice, with both games taking place last year, finishing with 248 and 285 yards. With a beat up backfield, George Kittle at tight end and rising star Brandon Aiyuk on the outside, expect Garoppolo to test replacement cornerback Tre Flowers often on Sunday.
No. 5) The Podfather’s Prop of the Week – New Orleans @ Chicago: More or Less
Prop: Drew Brees Under 264.5 Yards, Nick Foles Under 255.5 Yards.
The Podfather’s Prop of the Week was broken down on Friday night during the Prop Cast Happy Hour. Catch it every Friday at 5 pm ET.
With Michael Thomas, Marquez Callaway, and Allen Robinson all looking to miss Sunday, and the weather in the red, expect both teams to focus on protecting the football and winning a hard-fought old school game.
