NFL Week 7 Player Prop Bets: Our expert picks out the best Player Prop lines for Week 7 of the 2017 NFL season

The NFL is in its seventh week and player props expert Marcas Brennan is here to look at what players are worth following on a betting front. 

Andy Dalton over 244.5 passing yards

This is probably the easiest pick of the week. If the Bengals are to stand any chance of winning, they will need their quarterback to be on his best behaviour.  It’s only two weeks since the Steelers were gashed by Jacksonville running back Leonard Fournette, so you can be assured the Bengals backs will get little room on Sunday. They will close up any running lanes and dare Dalton to beat them through the air which means plenty of opportunities to surpass the above line. The flame haired quarterback can be hit and miss, but this is a game where he should put up plenty of yards as they could be forced to compete with the electric offense of the Steelers. Dalton is in good form and looks comfortable in the new offence, having totalled 600 yards in the last two games. This is well within range.

Matt Ryan over 302.5 passing yards

The repeat of last season’s Super Bowl means one thing- tons of yards. The Falcons are not the same team as last year but the key to beating the Patriots is through the air, as they possess a deplorable pass defence. Although Kyle Shanahan has departed and the effects are there for all to see, Ryan remains an elite QB and a trustworthy gunslinger. In two games played against the Patriots, “Mattie Ice” has thrown for 620 yards which highlights the type of game played when the Patriots and Falcons square off. There will be plenty of points on the board and expect the Atlanta quarterback to be centre stage.

Mitchell Trubisky over 171.5 passing yards

If Mitchell Trubisky is a first round pick and the leader of the Chicago Bears franchise, he needs to be surpassing 171 passing yards. John Fox has wrapped his quarterback in cotton wool since announcing him as starter and that was understandable against two elite defences in the mould of the Minnesota Vikings and the Baltimore Ravens. This week he faces the Carolina Panthers and they also possess am imposing front seven. But the key to beating them is testing their corners and I think this is the weekend when the shackles come off and Trubisky and he gets to show the NFL his worth as a starting QB.

Delanie Walker over 31.5 receiving yards

Regular readers will understand that I tend to target the Cleveland Browns and particularly their secondary. This week they welcome the Tennessee Titans to Ohio and I’m expecting them to focus on stopping the run which will mean bigger passing lanes for Marcus Mariota. The above line for Walker is understandable as the Titans have run the ball so often in recent games but one catch from the tight end could see him surpass the above mark. The Browns are terrible at covering tight ends in recent games so 32 yards is well within range.

Joe Flacco over 177.5 passing yards

Joe Flacco has been a pale shadow of his former self and the above line is due to the fact he is up against possibly the best pass defence in the league this Sunday. However, this is still too low for a quarterback who can mix it with the elite on his day.  We will get a glimpse of the good Joe Flacco, not the bad one, as I expect a higher scoring encounter than many anticipate. This line is too low as the Ravens QB has passed for 180 yards in four of the six games played to date and although it won’t be easy on the eye, he is sure to reach 200 yards on Sunday.

Devontae Brooker to score a touchdown

Brooker would not be well known in fantasy ranks and is arguably Denver’s third choice running back, but he has become a bigger factor in the Broncos offence of late. Last week he caught 4 passes for a total of 78 yards and it would be no surprise to see Trevor Siemian utilize him against teams with good pass rushers. San Diego have that in Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram, so it would be no surprise to see quick passes to Brooker end up in a score for Denver.
