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: 19 wins, 2 losses (90.5%)
2019 results: 84 wins, 54 losses (60.9%)

Taylor Gabriel, Receiving Yards 28.5 (-115) — UNDER ★★★★

After missing nearly a month with a concussion, Gabriel got back on the field last week and put up just one catch for six yards. With Anthony Miller trending up, Gabriel is a good bet for another lackluster day. He’s projected at 19.6 yards, making this one of the better plays on the board.

Phillip Lindsay, Receiving Yards 21.5 (-115) — UNDER ★★★★

The Broncos haven’t relied much on Lindsay as a receiver over their last four games, and as a result, he’s only topped this line once over that span. Hammer the under on this line.
