Top Three NFL Player Props For Week 6

Week 6 is here, and this is the first bye week of the season, which means that we will have a few fewer options overall to pick out from. That being said, we can still hit on some of the best NFL player props on the board this week.

Justin Fields Over 199.5 Passing Yards

Okay, we missed on Fields last week, and the reason for this was clear… Game script. The game script is KILLING Justin Fields’ volume, and I think that this HAS to crack in this game. The Packers’ offense looks fantastic after a dud in Week 1, and I think that this Bears defense is more gettable than these offenses have made them look this season.

Aaron Rodgers loves targeting the worst players on the team, and the Bears are not strong outside of Jaylen Johnson in the secondary. I think that we see the Packers throw the ball downfield in this game and put up points early and often. This means that we should see Justin Fields when he is asked to make plays.

The Bears’ playcalling and receivers have been much better over the last two weeks when it comes to going downfield. However, the early leads have led the Bears to just sit on the ball and take very, very few risks. I don’t expect this to be the case in this game, and if Fields continues to throw the ball downfield and throws 35 times instead of 20, he will smash this number.

Austin Ekeler Over 55.5 Rushing Yards

I think that this number just isn’t respecting the Ekeler usage in recent weeks in big games. We’ve seen Ekeler be a scatback in certain situations throughout his career, but this coaching staff seems very comfortable letting Ekeler take over the vast majority of the workload. Ekeler has 17 and 15 attempts in the last two weeks, and this Ravens game should also be competitive, and the Ravens aren’t some elite run defense.

Look towards this as one of the better NFL Player Props of the week.

Terry McLaurin Over 83.5 Receiving Yards

Terry McLaurin is dealing with yet another subpar QB, something that has really plagued his upside and consistency throughout his career. McLaurin on tape looks absolutely incredible both when creating separation, AND he has the longest streak in the NFL of catches without a drop.

Scary Terry gets the Chiefs this week, and we have seen the Cheifs get exposed over and over downfield, and I think that Terry will get loose multiple times in this game. The Chiefs also are not a great tackling team over the middle, meaning I think that McLaurin can take a short pass to the house if he slips a tackle or two.
