Player prop bets are a great opportunity to start dabbling in the world of sports betting, especially if you’re someone who has played fantasy football. The transition is relatively easy because unlike picking games, you’re still evaluating individual player performance.

When it comes to player props, determining which bet to make can seem daunting. There are so many things to pick from, so how do you know what bets are good bets? That’s where we’re here to help. This week, we’re taking the player prop lines from FanDuel’s sportsbook and breaking down the best bets on the board. Bets are listed by quality with five stars as the best bets.

Keep in mind that only playing these bets isn’t a strategy for long-term success. You’ll also need to do some work on your own to identify the best plays of the week. That being said, this list will get you off to a good start.

Last week’s results: 12 wins, 15 losses (44.4%)
2019 results: 211 wins, 174 losses (54.8%)
