NFL Must Bet Player Props Week 3 cover


As we roll into Week 3, we’ve still got 9 undefeated teams in the NFL, 7 of those teams are in the NFC; 3 from the NFC East.

With so much happening on the field, let’s get into our favorite prop bets for Week 3.

Justin Fields o59.5 Rush Yards (-120) via Bovada

Justin Fields averaged 94.9 YPG, 8 YPC, and 11.8 carries/game in his last 10 games of 2022/23.

Justin Fields and the Bears have been one of the most dissapointing teams to watch through two weeks of NFL action.

So far this season, through just two weeks, Justin Fields has been outplayed by both Jordan Love and Baker Mayfield.

Yeah, it’s been bad.

Fields ran 10 times for 59 yards in Week 1, and just 4 times last week against the Buccs; and just one of those was a designed run.

Last season, in his last 10 games of the year, Fields cleared this line in 9 games. Averaging 94.9 YPG, 8 YPC, and 11.8 carries/game.

The Bears averaged 21.7 ppg in that span, 2.5 points more than their regular season total. With Fields’ ability to run the ball, one designed run should be a fire-able offense.

The Chiefs gave up the 5th most rushing yards to QBs last season, and they enter today’s game as a 12.5 point favorite; meaning plenty of opportunity for some “tuck and run” type plays.

He’s been a tough guy to bet on so far, but the Bears’ have yet to put him in a position to succeed. With all the talk surrounding the team this week, what better time to make some changes and respond.

Keenan Allen o75.5 Rec Yards (-125) via Bovada

Keenan Allen celebrates a touchdown in the Mile High City.

Another absolute star, Keenan Allen. Through two weeks, Allen’s accumulated 19 targets, 14 catches, 187 rec yards, and 2 TDs.

He’s been Herbert’s favorite targets since Herbie entered the league, mainly because Allen’s consistency. With Herbert, he averages 10 targets/game 7 catches, for 74 YPG.

The last time these two faced off with the Vikings was in 2021, Allen recorded 8 catches on 11 targets for 98 yards.

He’s played the Vikes just 3 times, averaging 110 YPG and never recording fewer than 8 catches. He’s a big body receiver that should present problems for this Vikings secondary that PFF has ranked 25th.

With a total of 54.5 in this game, offense should be flowing, and the ball should be flying. Look to Keenan Allen to put his stamp on this game, and help the Chargers get their first win.

Tyreek Hill o90.5 Rec Yards (-130) via Bovada

Tyreek Hill broke out for 215 yards and 11 catches and 2 TDs against the Chargers Week 1.

Death, taxes, and a Tyreek Hill 60 yard bomb; is there anything more guaranteed in life?

Tyreek’s 24 targets through two games and has recorded 255 rec yards on the year. Last week was a tough divisional matchup with the Patriots, that saw Tyreek pull in just 5 catches on 9 targets for 40 yards.

Week 1 we saw Hill breakout for 215 yards and 11 catches on an insane 15 targets. Thats the offense I think we see here today against the Broncos.

The Dolphins are playing their first home game of the year, and once again have started the year 2-0. Miami is buzzing and it’s all because of Mike McDaniels.

The way McDaniels has revolutionized this offense, and the arm of Tua cannot be talked about enough. Tua’s currently averaging 357.5 passing yards/game, thrown 4 TDs, and recording a QBR of 102.9.

Tyreek averages 110.9 YPG, on an average of 10.7 targets when playing with Tua; he’s also recorded 10 TDs in 15 games together.

You may know me as ‘VSaaauce’. I’ve been a die hard hoops fan my entire life. I’ve been betting on the NBA/NCAAB/NFL/MLB for six years now, each year gaining more and more knowledge about being a profitable handicapper. I’m eager to learn, and eager to pass on everything I’ve gained over the last few years. I started my Twitter page four years ago, and this community makes me so thankful I did. Outside of sports and handicapping, I enjoy traveling, hoopin, a strong espresso and I’m currently studying to obtain my MD. I’m all about the vibes, good vibes only.
