NFL Week 9 is here, which means it's time to take advantage of some high-value player props.

My picks went 1-2 last week. Jared Cook successfully hit the under on his reception prop while Khalil Herbert seemed to hit the over on his receiving yardage prop in one play with a 15-yard catch, but it was called back due to a penalty. Herbert caught two other passes, but that wasn’t enough to go over 11 yards. It's usually close when I'm wrong but calling for the under on Cole Beasley receiving yardage prop was not pretty. This article's record now stands at 8-10 on the season.

RB Myles Gaskin, Miami Dolphins: Over 12.5 carries (-104)

Gaskin's season has been disappointing, as his playing time and usage have been fairly inconsistent from one game to another. His playing time has stabilized in recent weeks with Malcolm Brown landing on injured reserve, as he’s run the ball 27 times over the last two weeks without Brown in losses. The former Washington Husky has seen two-thirds of the running back carries while Salvon Ahmed receives the other third. Patrick Laird has joined the rotation but only for pass plays.

If Gaskin is averaging over 13 carries in games where the Dolphins are losing without Brown, then he should do even better in wins. The Dolphins are clear favorites this week against the Houston Texans. Miami has been the most pass-heavy team this year due to their weekly game scripts.
