Player prop bets to consider in Week 3

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 said, this list will get you off to a good start.

2019 results: 27 wins, 21 losses (56.3%)

Phillip Lindsay, Receiving Yards 25.5 (-118) — UNDER ★★★★

Sure, the over would have hit on this last week, but look for more run out of the Denver backfield this week in a plus matchup against the Packers. That plus the fact that Royce Freeman was the more productive back in the passing game makes this an appealing under play.

Marquise Brown, Receiving Yards 80.5 (-118) — UNDER ★★★★

There’s no denying the appeal of Brown after the rookie saw 12 targets and led the Ravens in routes run last week. That said, this is a big line. Our numbers like Brown this week, but not this much. We have him projected at 61.6 receiving yards.
