Here are five player props that stand out to me on DK Sportsbook for the Week 8 NFL card.
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
RUSSELL WILSON: 20.5 TOTAL FANTASY POINTS SCORED
The last time the Falcons held a QB under this number was Carson Wentz in Week 2. The stretch of QBs to score over 20.5 DKFP against Atlanta includes Marcus Mariota and Jacoby Brissett, who aren’t exactly in the same class as Wilson. Deshaun Watson showed what type of ceiling this matchup offers, scoring 45 DKFP against the Falcons in Week 5.
RYAN TANNEHILL: 240.5 PASSING YARDS
Tannehill completed 23-of-29 passes for 312 yards in his first start of the season against the Chargers. It looks like this offense responds much better to Tannehill, which should mean the Titans will continue to look to move the ball through the air. This matchup dictates exactly that, as Tampa is one of the worst defenses in the league at stopping the pass. With a pretty reasonable number set here, Tannehill doesn’t even have to be close to as good as he was last week to surpass this total.
COREY DAVIS: 3.5 RECEPTIONS
Davis had his best game of the season with Tannehill starting last week, going for 80 yards and a touchdown. It wasn’t just on one deep ball like he generally does, though. Davis was targeted a season-high seven times, which resulted in a season-high six receptions. Expect more of the same against this cushy Tampa secondary.
KENNY STILLS: 3.5 RECEPTIONS
Still brought in 4-of-5 targets last week for 105 yards. Now he gets a much better matchup against the Raiders, who have one of the worst secondaries in the league. Oakland got shredded in Green Bay last week, giving up five passing touchdowns. Will Fuller (hamstring) is going to be out long term, which leaves Stills to settle into this WR2 role. He’s one of the chalkiest DFS plays on the slate this week, and I think we’re all expecting at least four catches from him.
PLAYER TO HAVE MOST RUSHING YARDS: NYJ AT JAX
LEONARD FOURNETTE (-159)
I don’t generally target these types of bets, but this one has a layup feel to it. With respect for Le’Veon Bell, the Jets offense is not good. That could mean 10 receptions for 80 yards for Bell, but it hasn’t meant much rushing upside so far this season. Bell’s season-high in rushing yards so far this season is 70, which Fournette has surpassed in each of the last four games (all of which he’s carried the ball at least 20 times). Jacksonville is also favored by nearly a touchdown at home, which leaves the game script on Fournette’s side.
