Ryan, Rivers Show Out On Passing Props

In Week 6, Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers threw for the most yards on Sunday. Both threw for 371 yards in victories for their teams. Ryan added 4 touchdown passes, and Rivers has 3 touchdown passes.

Ryan’s passing yards player prop was 289.5 yards and the over/under for passing TDs was 1.5. With his performance, he went over on both of these. After throwing for 450 yards in Week 1 when he had a passing yards prop of 292.5, Ryan struck out on going over his passing yards player prop in the next four weeks. With Week 6’s over, Ryan is now 2-4 on the season hitting the over on his passing yards player prop.

Another Big Day for Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill has been performing well this season. In Week 6, Tannehill threw for 364 yards and 4 touchdowns. His passing yards player prop was 258.5, so he hit the over there. His passing TDs player prop was 1.5 touchdowns, so he also hit the over with this one. With more than 1,300 yards passing, 13 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions, it appears Tannehill could still be undervalued in the passing game.

Henry Smashes Rushing and Receiving Props

On Sunday, Derrick Henry led the way with the most rushing yards by a running back, posting 212 yards on 22 carries. Henry’s rushing yards player prop was 105.5 yards, and he blew the over out of the water. That puts Henry at 3-2 on the season for hitting the over on his rushing yards player prop.

Henry also had 5 receptions for 52 yards receiving. His receiving yards player prop was 10.5 yards, so once again Henry crushed the over on this player prop.

Jefferson More Than Doubles Receiving Prop

Sunday’s leader in receiving yards was Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings, who had 9 receptions for 166 yards. It was the second time this season Jefferson had posted more than 150 receiving yards in a single game. His receiving yards player prop for this Week 6 game was 67.5. Through six games, Jefferson is 4-2 on hitting the over on his receiving yards player prop.

With the 9 receptions, Jefferson hit the over on the line of 4.5 receptions that was set for Week 6, too.

Rodgers, Brady Fall Plenty Short in Yards

Aaron Rodgers, start quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, had a very rough go of it on Sunday. Going against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Rodgers only threw for 160 yards. He didn’t throw any touchdown passes, but he did toss 2 interceptions. It was the worst performance of the season for Rodgers.

Rodgers’ passing yards player prop line was at 300.5 for this game, so he came in well under that mark. He was +171 to throw at least 1 interception and +175 to come in under on 1.5 touchdowns. Having played four prior games this season, Rodgers had hit the over on his passing yards prop three times. He also hit the over on his passing TDs prop in three consecutive weeks before missing out in Week 6.

Even though the Buccaneers scored 38 points in the team’s win over the Packers, Brady didn’t have too good of a day. He only threw for 166 yards, although he did toss 2 touchdowns. Brady’s passing yards prop line was 295.5, so he was well under in result. Brady is now 2-4 when trying to hit the over on his passing yards prop this season.

Brady did, however, throw for more than 1.5 passing TDs, so he hit the over there.

Drake Goes Over for Only Second Time

One of two games played on Monday featured the Arizona Cardinals taking on the Dallas Cowboys. Kenyan Drake was in action for the Cardinals and had himself quite the day, posting 164 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns. Drake’s rushing yards prop was 59.5 and he went over by plenty. It was only the second time Drake hit the over on his rushing yards player prop this season, though.

Big Rushing Day for Edwards-Helaire

Another big performer on Monday was Kansas City Chiefs running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who rushed for 161 yards in the team’s 26-17 win over the Buffalo Bills. After he broke the 100-yard mark in Week 1, Edwards-Helaire had yet to go back over that mark on the season. Edwards-Helaire’s rushing yards player prop was 74.5 for Week 6 and he more than doubled that with his performance.

Edwards-Helaire is now 3-3 on hitting the over for his rushing yards player prop this season. It will be interesting to see how his props are affected by the addition of Le’Veon Bell to the team’s backfield and is something worth monitoring.
