Minty Bets and Matt Harmon offer up their favorite player props for Week 2.
MATT HARMON: Yeah, some tasty Player Props, indeed. I'm psyched to be doing this with you, Minty. I'm psyched for these Player Props we got today. We've got four pretty interesting players to talk about right now. Why don't you hit me with your first prop of the day.
MINTY BETS: OK, well, first one is going to be Nick Chubb, over 86 and 1/2 rushing yards. He's going up against Houston today, who had the worst rushing defense last season, allowing 5.2 yards per carry. The Browns are a very run-heavy offense, and Nick Chubb just cannot be contained. Honestly, I think he hits this over in the first half alone.
MATT HARMON: Ooh, that is spicy. I love it. But it's true. I mean, the Browns are big favorites. This is a perfect time to take a banger, early down banger like Nick Chubb and his rushing yards prop here. I'm going to go through the air on this one, and I'm going to take Emmanuel Sanders, over 47 and 1/2 receiving yards.
The Gabe Davis fanboys got their little touchdown in Week 1. That was cute to see. But Gabe Davis was really the fourth receiver behind Emmanuel Sanders, who was number 3 in routes run on the team, actually only ran three fewer routes then Cole Beasley and Stefon Diggs, got eight targets, and most importantly, averaged 18 air yards per target.
Like, I didn't see Emmanuel Sanders being a deep threat at this point in his career, but that's how the Bills used him in Week 1. I think the Bills offense has a big game against Miami, who they have pretty much steamrolled the last couple of times they've played them, at least in 2020. So I like Sanders here. The veteran is ageless in this spot.
MINTY BETS: True, true. OK, my next prop is going to be Derrick Henry, under 86 and 1/2 rushing yards. Now, he's going up against Seattle who had the fourth best run defense. And you know what? Last week, the Cardinals only held him to 58 rushing yards because they knew that in order to win the game, they had to stop the run. And that's what they did, and that's what Seattle is going to do today. So I think 86 and 1/2 is a big number for Derrick Henry today. I got to go under.
MATT HARMON: Yeah, there's like a laundry list of questions about the Titans offense right now. Like, you could unscroll this thing. There's a lot going on there for Tennessee, so I understand your logic on that prop.
My last one here is Cooper Kupp, and I am going over on the 5 and 1/2 catches at minus 115. Cooper Kupp was clearly the number 1 receiver on this team in Week 1, led the team in targets, led the team in routes run. And I just absolutely love the connection between him and Matthew Stafford right now.
Like, Cooper Kupp has a great role. He gets schemed open, just obliterates zone coverage. Now he's got an aggressive down-the-middle passer in Matthew Stafford. I think I will be betting the over on his yardage, his catches props basically every single week because I just love the way this offense looks right now.
And oh, by the way, if you get yourself a little side piece on Van Jefferson, over 2 and 1/2 catches. He was actually ahead of Robert Woods in routes run last week too. So I know he only had two catches last week, made the most of them. But I think Van Jefferson could have a pretty big game with Xavier Rhodes out for the Colts once again. So these Rams receivers, really like them here.
