NFL Week 17: Top 15 Player Props Include Big Games from Etienne, Rodgers

Josh Larky, Ryan Reynolds and Ben Wolbransky each name five of their favorite player props for Week 17 in the NFL:

Larky’s Top-5 Props

Leonard Fournette OVER 27.5 Rec Yds (-115 DraftKings)

He’s been over this number 10 of his last 12 games, with at least seven targets in his past six.

Cam Akers UNDER 69.5 Rush Yds (-115 DraftKings)

Last week, when the Rams beat the Broncos, Akers had 23 carries, 118 yards and three touchdowns. But prior to this game, he has been under this number each week.

Brian Robinson Jr. OVER 75.5 Rush Yds (-114 FanDuel)

Cleveland allows 5.2 yards per carry to running backs, per The Edge. The Browns’ pass defense has been lights out the past six games (6.0 yards per attempt). Their path to winning this game is running the ball.

Gus Edwards OVER 39.5 Rush Yds (-115 DraftKings)

Edwards had 13 carries for 66 yards against the Steelers in early December.

Russell Wilson OVER 1.5 Pass TDs (+195 DraftKings)

The Chiefs have allowed more than two passing touchdowns per game. Their offense forces you to pass to keep up.

Reynolds’ Top-5 Props

Travis Etienne OVER 70.5 Rush Yds (-115 BetMGM)

He’s beaten this number seven times this season, including against the Texans in early October.

Brandin Cooks OVER 47.5 Rec Yds (-115 DraftKings)

Cooks returned to action last week and saw nine targets. He’s beaten this in 7 of 11 games.

David Njoku OVER 33.5 Rec Yds (-114 FanDuel)

I think from a game-planning standpoint, the biggest advantage the Browns have is their dynamic tight end David Njoku.

Drake London OVER 65.5 Rec Yds (-115 DraftKings)

London has at least nine targets in his last three games, and he eclipsed this number in each of those.

Dalvin Cook OVER 75.5 Rush Yds (-115 DraftKings)

The Packers are allowing the sixth-most rushing yards this season.

 Wolby’s Top-5 Props

Aaron Rodgers OVER 250.5 Pass Yds (-115 DraftKings)

Minnesota allows the most passing yards to quarterbacks, that’s really it.

Cam Akers OVER 12.5 Rec Yds (-115 DraftKings)

Over the last three weeks, Akers has led the Rams’ running back room by a wide margin and has looked really good as a receiver.

Devin Singletary OVER 12.5 Long Rush (+100 DraftKings )

Singletary has hit this in 11 of 15 games and Cincinnati has allowed it in 9 of 15 games. 

D.J. Moore OVER 21.5 Long Rec (-115 DraftKings)

His 27% target share is higher when Sam Darnold is the quarterback. He’s been fun over the last month and they are chasing the division title

Isiah Pacheco OVER 64.5 Rush Yds (-115 DraftKings)

While Jerick McKinnon has been the receiving guy, Pacheco has been the rusher. He has eclipsed this number five times since Clyde Edwards-Helaire got injured

Dave Wannstedt: Matthew Stafford’s Elbow Pain Not Yet Cause For Concern

The Los Angeles Rams stirred up some controversy this week when it was announced that star quarterback Matthew Stafford was dealing with elbow pain and they were continuing to limit his reps in training camp.

Rams Head Coach Sean McVay called the issue a “tricky deal” and something that was, in his experience, not normal for a quarterback. In fact, McVay likened it more to something an MLB pitcher might experience instead.

McVay also stated that the way they are handling this issue is totally new ground for him and that Stafford’s experience and mental toughness helps make McVay more confident in the team’s plan to rest and help Stafford heal.

McVay’s tough decision

Former NFL Head Coach and Contributor to The 33rd Team Dave Wannstedt believes that this is only an issue for the team if it reduces Stafford’s effectiveness or if Stafford can’t handle the pain.

“When you’ve got a guy like Stafford where he’s already limited, it’s not something he’s going to just work out in practice. It comes down to this for me: One, is he still effective throwing the ball? Two, can he tolerate the pain? Three, Is this something that’s going to get worse? That’s the criteria that Sean McVay will have to judge making a decision about his quarterback.”

Nothing new for the team

Stafford has been battling elbow pain even going into last season, when he led the Rams to a Super Bowl victory. The Rams have been monitoring this issue and came into the offseason with a plan to help alleviate the pain Stafford is feeling. While he has thrown in red zone and individual drills, Stafford did not participate in team drills for the last several practices.

McVay reassured Rams fans that the precautions are simply because the team cannot predict how Stafford’s arm will feel by midseason and want to control what they can before the season. Stafford was bothered by the arm pain last season but obviously couldn’t take days off.

Looking Back on Legendary Coach Dick Vermeil’s Career
The vote was 4-0 against. Dick Vermeil’s wife Carol voted no. So did the couple’s three teenage children. None of them were in favor of leaving sunny Southern California for shot-and-a-beer, hey-yo-how-ya-doin’ Philadelphia. Hell, even Vermeil had little interest when Eagles general manager Jim Murray called him that early-January day in 1976 to talk about […]
