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. Each week, we take the player prop lines from BetMGM and break down the best props on the board. We do so by comparing the line to our projections here at PFF. 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: 8 wins, 8 losses (50.0%)
2019 results: 46 wins, 32 losses (59.0%)

Wayne Gallman, Receiving Yards 24.5 (-118) — UNDER ★★★★

Sure, Gallman was used more than we expected in the passing game last week, but we expect his numbers to regress this week. Our projections have Gallman at 22.9 receiving yards against the Vikings, so the under is very much in play.

Daniel Jones, Passing Yards 200.5 (-200) — OVER ★★★★

So the odds are going to pay you a ton if this one comes in, but sometimes you just have to take the gimme putt. Jones should have no problem topping this line.
