There is less known about who exactly will be healthy enough to play this Thursday night in Cleveland than we know about the location of Jimmy Hoffa. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t a number of tantalizing NFL player props for us to place wagers.

Teddy Bridgewater – Over 247.5 Passing Yards

A defense-first team with a “game-manager” at quarterback has become one of the better over bets, week in and week out. People are slow to recognize that Teddy Bridgewater is actually throwing for a lot of yards, so his lines are much lower than they should be.

On Sunday, he threw for 334 yards against the Raiders, and the week before that, against a very good Pittsburgh defense, he threw for 288. His turnovers are up, which has hurt Denver’s win-loss record, but his yardage is also way up.

Bridgewater has been particularly good on the road, hitting the over in nine of his last 11 games away from his home field. He’ll make that 10 of his last 12 on Thursday night.

Courtland Sutton – Over 70.5 Receiving Yards

It is not a coincidence that as Teddy Bridgewater’s passing yards have risen, so have Courtland Sutton’s receiving yards. The success of these two players is directly tied to each other.

Against the Steelers, 120 of Bridgewater’s 288 came from Sutton and included a 39-yard touchdown.

Against the Raiders, Sutton only had a high of 18 yards, but he was targeted 14 times, and he made eight catches for 94 yards.

Sutton is not only Bridgewater’s best receiver, but he’s also his favorite target. He should get close to another 100-yard game. This makes for one of the better NFL player props on Thursday.

Donovan Peoples-Jones – Over 2.5 Receptions

Odell Beckham, Jr. continues to get banged up, which means that there have been opportunities for other Cleveland wide receivers to step up and make more plays.

Donovan Peoples-Jones has been that guy, catching five passes for 70 yards against the Chargers and catching for passes against the Cardinals for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns on Sunday.

Baker Mayfield or Case Keenum, it doesn’t matter. That kind of production is noticed by the coaches and everyone in the quarterback room, and the offense begins to find more ways to get you the ball.

Denver’s defense has given up at least three catches to 12 different receivers this year, and on Thursday night, Peoples-Jones will make it 13.
