Here are five player props that standout to me on DK Sportsbook for the Week 7 NFL slate.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
MATT RYAN: 310.5 PASSING YARDS
Ryan’s been a consistent target in the player props and hasn’t failed us on an over yet. Atlanta has no run game and no defense, which has led to Ryan starting the season with over 2,000 passing yards in six games — each of which he’s topped 300 yards in.
Yes, Jalen Ramsey will make his debut for the Rams, but Los Angeles hasn’t been great overall defensively. This is the highest total on the board, and has all the makings for a shootout. This should be another easy over for Ryan, who’s been the cash game QB king thus far. Atlanta’s failed to cover by 12.8 points per game the past three weeks, which has meant plenty of passing attempts.
JARED GOFF: 287.5 PASSING YARDS
On the opposite end of the matchup, facing the Falcons has been the best possible spot for a QB to be in. This one will be indoors in Atlanta, with a Rams offense looking to get back on track following three losses.
Kyler Murray threw for 340 on the Falcons last week and Deshaun Watson threw for 426 the previous week against them. Goff’s shown 500-yard upside earlier this season against Tampa Bay.
CARLOS HYDE: 65.5 RUSHING YARDS
We hit easily on Hyde over 69.5 rushing yards last week, as he put together his first 100-yard game of the season. Hyde’s becoming a workhorse for Houston, taking 47 carries over the past two weeks combined.
The Colts are off of a bye and a big win over the Chiefs, but still allowing 113.2 rushing yards per game. With Hyde getting the majority of the work, he should get enough carries to hit this modest over.
TEVIN COLEMAN: 50.5 RUSHING YARDS
It might scare people away to target a backfield with so many options getting touches, but Coleman seems to be the guy San Francisco wants to feature. He’s averaging 17 carries and 71 rushing yards per game since his return from an ankle injury.
The 49ers are heavy favorites in Washington, which should lead to plenty of opportunities to run the ball in this game. Washington’s been abysmal against the run, giving up 134 yards per game on the ground.
EZEKIEL ELLIOTT: 80.5 RUSHING YARDS
I’ll mix an under in, and it’s on a big-time player. Elliott will be a big piece of Dallas’ game plan, but he’s also had 62 or fewer rushing yards in three of his six games. This is a stout front seven for the Eagles, and it just held Dalvin Cook to 41 rushing yards on 16 carries. I like the Eagles to win the game, which would lead to more passing late for the Cowboys. I don’t think ‘Zeke gets there on a big number.
HONORABLE MENTION: D.J. CHARK RECEIVING PROPS
Nothing has been released as of writing this, and it likely hinges on the status of Dede Westbook. If Westbrook is out, Chark will face a Bengals secondary that stinks to begin with, and will be without its top-two corners. It would take an impressive number not to hit the overs on receptions and yards.
