Here are five player props that stand out to me on DK Sportsbook for the Week 6 NFL card.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
MATT RYAN: 315.5 PASSING YARDS
The Falcons have absolutely no running game or defense, which has meant completely relying on Ryan through the air. Ryan’s averaging over 44 pass attempts per game, and he has topped 300 yards in each game. He’s gone over 315 in three of those games, and his average sits at 331 per game.
The Cardinals are one of the most pass-friendly defenses to target against in the NFL, and this one’s setting up to potentially be the type of shootout we saw last week in Houston. The matchup combined with the volume sets up an extremely high floor for Ryan in the passing game.
KENYAN DRAKE: 41.5 RUSHING YARDS
Drake’s managed 82 rushing yards on 21 carries over the last two weeks, and it’s come with limited opportunity, with Miami losing both games by 20 or more points. With the point spread actually close in this game, the Dolphins should finally have a chance to stay in a game and run a normal offense. Generally, desperation has kicked in, and Miami’s been slinging the ball the entire second half.
Washington is giving up 144 yards per game on the ground and has one of the worst YPC defenses in the NFL. Kalen Ballage is banged up in Miami’s backfield, and Mark Walton shouldn’t threaten for too many carries. This could be a breakout game for Drake, and the rushing yard total is set very low.
TEDDY BRIDGEWATER: 9.5 RUSHING YARDS
Once upon a time, Bridgewater was a mobile QB, but not in the second stint of his career following the knee injury. Bridgewater has eight or fewer rushing yards in three of his four games this season, and even on five rushing attempts last week, went for seven yards.
On a number this low, it’s worth mentioning you can lose a yard or two if any QB kneels come into play, but I’m expecting Bridgewater to stay in the pocket unless he absolutely needs to bail.
CARLOS HYDE: 69.5 RUSHING YARDS
The Chiefs’ defense got completely exposed on the ground last week, with the Colts completely controlling the game. The way Indy used Marlon Mack laid the blue print for the Texans in this one — Mack went for 132 yards on 29 carries.
Houston’s not afraid to use Hyde in a workhorse role, as he earned 21 carries last week against Atlanta. This revenge spot has all the makings for Hyde to be heavily involved in the game plan.
JAMISON CROWDER: 4.5 RECEPTIONS
Crowder’s failed to hit this mark in each of the Jets’ last three games, but let’s not forget how heavily involved he was back in Week 1, when Sam Darnold was the QB. Crowder was targeted by Darnold 17 times the only time they played together, and he brought in 14 of them against a tough Buffalo defense.
As seven-point underdogs in this one, the Jets could easily be playing from behind. Crowder makes for a really safe option in the short passing game, and he’s earned Darnold’s trust back in his last game.
