Here are five player props that stand out to me on DK Sportsbook for the Week 9 NFL card:
All odds provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds subject to change.
PLAYER TO SCORE TD AND TEAM WIN
AARON JONES (+110)
Jones has scored 11 times this season, including seven trips to the end zone in his last four games. He’s failed to score just once from Week 2 on, and he gets a favorable matchup against the Chargers here. This will pretty much be a home game for the Packers, who shouldn’t have much trouble getting the victory.
NICK CHUBB: 84.5 RUSHING YARDS
Chubb’s topped this number in each of his last five games, averaging over 120 yards per game on the ground over that span. The Broncos have gotten gashed for nearly 110 yards per game on the ground this season, and Chubb should be in line for a huge workload. The only game he hasn’t carried the ball 20 or more times in the last five games was a 31-3 blowout loss to the 49ers. Cleveland’s favored in this one, and if game script holds, Chubb should see plenty of work.
BRANDON ALLEN: 204.5 PASSING YARDS
Allen is just an awkward middle man, getting the start here with Joe Flacco (neck) hurt, and Drew Lock (thumb) not quite ready to take over. Allen wasn’t even with Denver in the preseason, so this will be his first live game action with the Broncos. He tossed three interceptions with no touchdowns for the Rams in the preseason. The Chubb rushing over would mean Allen may have to sling the ball late, but he has no weapons around him. Cleveland’s secondary has gotten healthy and is playing well right now.
CHRIS CARSON: 18.5 RUSHING ATTEMPTS
Carson is the workhorse back for Seattle, and the game logs and game script tells us he should have a standard week. That’s meant 20 or more carries five weeks in a row. No reason that should change as a home favorite. Pretty simple play here.
LAMAR JACKSON: 60.5 RUSHING YARDS
Bill Belichick coaches against player’s strengths, making you beat him in other ways. If Lamar Jackson can air it out for a big game, then so be it. But the Patriots are very aware that Jackson has rushed for 268 yards over the past two games, and limiting those yards on the ground will be the key to winning this game. Look for a tremendous New England defense to put extra emphasis on limiting Jackson on the ground.
