Thrive Fantasy Player Props To Exploit | Week 2

Fantasy Football 2023

Last week was a good week. Out of the five props outlined in last week’s article, four of them were winners. The only prop discussed that was not a winner was Odell Beckham Jr because he didn’t play last week, so we were forced to use a backup prop.  Let’s see if we can make this a perfect five-for-five in Week 2. Remember, each prop gives out a total of 200 points split between two options.  The more likely an option is to hit, the fewer points you get. The more unlikely a choice is to hit, the closer you get to 200. Our goal, based on the bigger winner last week, is to get around 1000 points. Now, where do we begin?

Justin Jefferson 89.5 Total Receiving Yards 

I’m betting the UNDER here. The Vikings just played against the dreadful Bengals defense, and Justin Jefferson managed 71.5 yards.  Now they play in Arizona as underdogs. Arizona may have a weak secondary, but their defensive line is so ferocious. They terrorized Ryan Tannehill, and as a result, held AJ Brown and Julio Jones to a combined total of 79 yards. The Titans have a much better offensive line than the Vikings too. Ryan Weisse has this extremely close in his projections for Justin Jefferson. (Hint: the projection is 89 yards).  The UNDER is worth 90 points. I’ll take bigger risks elsewhere.

A.J. Brown 0.5 Total Rec TD’s 

The over, and the under, are both worth 100 points. That means it’s a pick ‘em. Let’s pick the OVER on receiving touchdowns. AJ Brown scored the only receiving touchdown for Tennessee last week. He also has scored at least one receiving touchdown in 11 of his last 14 games.  He seems like the primary receiving touchdown threat in that offense and the Titans also look to bounce back against a much tamer pass rush with the Seattle Seahawks. Ryan Weisse is also predicting a touchdown. These 100 points seem like a safer bet than the 90 above. Take the OVER!

Darren Waller 70.5 Total Receiving Yards

Take the OVER!! Darren Waller had 19 targets and over 100 yards in Week 1. In the final five weeks of the 2020 season, Waller surpassed 70 receiving yards in all five games. Ryan Weisse is projecting 81 yards for Waller against the Steelers. It’s clear that Waller is far and away the #1 target on this team. If the Raiders are to move the ball consistently against the Steelers, it’s the Waller show. It’s 100 points for the taking here on the OVER.

Carson Wentz 21.5 Total Completions

I’m taking the OVER here too. Carson Wentz completed 25 passes in their 28-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks this last week. The Colts are 3.5-point underdogs against the Rams this week, so it leads one to believe that they will be needing to throw the ball to catch up. The Bears had to do that last week against the Rams, and the Rams gave up 29 completions (27 to Andy Dalton). It’s a funnel defense that requires an offense to dink and dunk all the way down the field. Ryan Weisse has this close, at 22 completions for Wentz. The OVER would net you 90 points.

Keenan Allen 70.5 Total Receiving Yards

I am taking the OVER here as well. Keenan Allen had 100 yards against a tough Washington secondary last week. Now, he gets to take on the horrendous Dallas Cowboys defense. The Cowboys surrendered 250 total yards passing to the Buccaneers Big-3 WRs. Of the Bucs’ three best wide recovers, the Cowboys could only shut Mike Evans down. However, with the way the Chargers use Allen, that shouldn’t be a big worry. Ryan Weisse has Allen leading the team in targets, receptions, and yards (75). The OVER here is worth 95. I am very confident that the Chargers’ offense will have a great game.
