NFL Week 8 Player Prop Bets: Our expert picks out the best Player Prop lines for Week 8 of the 2017 NFL season

Player props expert Marcas Brennan is on hand to take a look at what players could earn you some extra money in Sunday’s NFL matches.

Kelvin Benjamin over 68.5 receiving yards & Kelvin Benjamin to score first touchdown

The best bet of the week lies in Tampa Bay where the Buccaneers welcome their NFC South rivals to Florida. Tampa Bay has one of the worst secondaries in the NFL and Cam Newton’s number one receiver Kelvin Benjamin is sure to take advantage. They have given up the most amounts of yards and receptions to wide receivers to date and it would be no surprise to see the towering wide receiver haul in the first score of the game either. The Panthers speedster has played against Tampa Bay four times and surpassed the above total with relative ease on each occasion, Sunday’s match should be number five. 

Phillip Rivers over 287.5 passing yards

The New England Patriots showed improvements on defence last week against the Atlanta Falcons, but they still remain a team that can be taken apart by an accurate quarterback. They have conceded the second highest amount of yards to wide receivers in the league and this is an area Philip Rivers will look to exploit. The Chargers are usually involved in high scoring matches and it would be no surprise to see Tom Brady and Rivers airing it out in a game that totals 50 points. The veteran QB has faced the Patriots five times in the regular season and has surpassed the above total on three occasions, so he will certainly not be overawed by the challenge.

AJ Green over 92.5 receiving yards

AJ Green will be playing with a chip on his shoulder this week after the Bengals insipid performance against the Steelers seven days ago. He was held to a total of 40 yards against a team that he has torn to shreds in the past. In fact I have a feeling Cincinnati will rebound from that display with an offensive performance of huge proportions. They face a Colts team who are surrendering over 300 passing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks and are struggling in particular to contain the deep ball. 25% of completions against the Colts have been for 20 plus yards and this is an area where Green excels. A 100 yard performance is on the cards for one of the best receivers in the game.

Amari Cooper over 81.5 receiving yards

Cooper was having an awful season statistically wise up until last week’s breakout performance against the Chiefs where he hauled in 210 yards and a brace of touchdowns. And it has become quite obvious that when Derek Carr gets the ball to Cooper, the Raiders tend to win. The Bills possess a stout defence and it may not be as high scoring as some games scheduled this weekend but Buffalo have struggled against elite wide outs to date. Demaryius Thomas, AJ Green and Mike Evans all surpassed the above total against the Bills and I expect Cooper to continue that trend on Sunday night.

Antonio Brown over 82.5 receiving yards

It always surprises me when Antonio Brown’s line is placed south of 90 yards. He’s a fantasy dream and the best wide out in the league for a number of reasons. In seven games played so far, Brown has seen the ball thrown his direction a massive 84 times. Any receiver that is targeted 12 times a game has a massive chance of eclipsing 100 yards, something Brown has achieved in four of the seven games played to date.  The Lions have a good record on pass defence and opposing QB’s have struggled against Jim Caldwell’s men, but Brown has faced tougher corner men than the Lions possess and another monster outing is in store from the Pittsburgh talisman.

Probably the best matchup of the weekend sees the Washington Redskins host their NFC foes the Dallas Cowboys. This has all the hallmarks of a high scoring affair with players of huge quality on both offences and while it was tempting to side with Dak Prescott having a huge outing, Kirk Cousins needs to throw as much as possible if Washington are to win. It’s easier to run the ball against the Cowboys, but Cousins loves playing against Rod Marinelli’s defence as he totalled 800 yards in their two matchups last year. This will be high scoring affair and Washington knows they will need a big game from their QB if they are to emerge victorious.
