Welcome, Bruno Boys Nation to the Week 7 of the 2022 NFL Season! Along with the variety of fantasy football formats, we cover Player Prop bets. So in case you just want some quick action for the weekend, Ernie Estrella is tackling Player Prop betting during the season. He will break down the wiser bets for five players (2 in-depth, 3 quick) at quarterback, running back and wide receiver, based on how he sees the game script going.
Week 8 Wide Receivers and Tight Ends
Tyler Boyd will catch OVER 5.5 receptions (+145 DraftKings) against the Browns
Start Time: Sunday, October 31, FirstEnergy Stadium 8:15pm ET
Broadcast: ESPN / NFL+
The loss of Ja’Marr Chase changes a lot of moving pieces in this game. The run game could be more of the focus, targets and receptions will go to different people, namely Tee Higgins, Hayden Hurst and Tyler Boyd.
Boyd is coming off an eight-reception game off nine targets for 155 yards on the Falcons. Higgins will get a lot of attention from the defense, which is why we are focusing on Boyd as a sticks mover, and someone who can be trouble if he breaks a tackle or two. Yardage is something that could be a premium in this game if the Browns decide to play good defense. It’s hard to tell which defensive-minded group will come out on Halloween. So the receptions seem more of a surer thing than yards. You might be able to find 4.5 receptions out there but Draftkings has +145 with the extra reception, and I feel like Boyd’s in line with 7-8 receptions this week.
