Eagles at Texans? This one might be over early. That doesn’t mean we can’t win some prop bets though.
Let’s kick it off with Dameon Pierce vs Miles Sanders (+1.5).
Pierce has been a revelation for fantasy managers this year. His role is only expanding.
Last week we saw Pierce take over 100% of the Texans' two-minute drill work. Versus an Eagles team who has seen the second-fewest rush attempts on the year because they blow people out, we better hope Pierce can catch the ball.
Houston’s defense stinks. They’ve allowed the most rushing yards in the NFL. They’ve given up the most rushes of 10 yards or more. Opposing runners are gaining 5.5 yards per attempt. Yikes.
Give me Sanders on a night when the Birds will do whatever they want. I see Sanders scoring and going over 100 yards.
Even with Houston down both starting wide receivers I still don’t see a path for Pierce to outscore Sanders.
TopProp Play: Sanders (+1.5) > Pierce
Do you want to get crazy? Let’s get crazy. A kicker prop!
Ka’imi Fairbairn is getting three bonus points on Jake Elliot. I’m taking the points here.
Fairbairn is no slouch. He has nine kicks of over 40 yards. I can absolutely see him nailing a few deep bombs tonight for an offense that will stall out.
But Drake the Eagles are going to smoke the Texans. Yes, I know this. But the Eagles also like going for it on 4th down and oh by the way score a lot of touchdowns. Elliot will kick 5 extra points tonight but Fairbairn will beat him on field goals and that sweet three-point bonus.
TopProp Play: Fairbairn (+2.5) > Elliot
