Last week was rough. In the early fourth quarter, Carson Wentz left the game with an injury while sitting on 20 completions (the over was 21.5). That was one of three props that were missed after going perfect in Week 1. As the great Randall Park says in the hit Netflix film “Always Be My Maybe,”bounce back like a tennis ball.” That’s what we will do. We will bounce back like a tennis ball with five new props for Week 3.

Calvin Ridley 0.5 Receiving TDs
Take the OVER here. The Falcons are being projected for about 22 points against the Giants or three touchdowns. The Giants just gave up 30 last week to the Taylor Heinicke Football team, where Terry Mclaurin had over 100 yards and a TD. The Broncos put up 27 in Week 1 and Tim Patrick had a touchdown. Calvin Ridley just scored against Tampa. If the Falcons are going to score three touchdowns against the Giants, you must imagine Calvin Ridley gets at least one of them. Ryan Weisse agrees in his projections. This is actually 115 points to take the over. Let’s go!!
Lamar Jackson over 286.5 Pass Yards + Rush Yards
Take the OVER here as well. Lamar Jackson had 321 of those yards in Week 1 and 346 last week. Ryan does not think that continues in his projections but so far, the Lions have given up over 280 yards a game just through the air. Let me repeat that: 280+ yards per game through the air. That does not consider any rushing yards nor any Lamar Jackson rushing yards. Lamar is averaging 96 yards a game on the ground. It’ll probably be close, but I will take the favorite and the 95 points. That is assuming he could be the illness that caused him to miss Wednesday’s practice.
Patrick Mahomes 310.5 Pass Yds
Patrick Mahomes has never thrown for more than 300 yards in a single game against the Chargers. That ends on Sunday. Take the OVER. The line on this game is a massive 54.5 line with the Chiefs projecting out about at about 31 points. This team will not score over 30 points unless Mahomes is over 310.5 yards. Mahomes has easily been over 310 yards in both weeks this year and Ryan has him at 327 yards. This is as good of a chance as any to break the curse against the Chargers and hit the over here. It’s 95 points
Jared Goff 1.5 Pass TDs
I am taking the OVER here too. Sense a trend? Jared Goff has thrown 2 or more touchdowns in both games this season. The Ravens are giving up two passing touchdowns per game this year as well. Ryan is projecting two touchdowns for Jared Goff and you should too. It doesn’t feel great as we all remember what happened the last time that Goff played Baltimore (0 touchdowns). However, the Lions will likely need to pass the ball a ton here and big deficits have not stopped Goff from throwing touchdowns this year. The over is worth 90.
Dalvin Cook 90.5 Rush Yards
Finally, Dalvin Cook. Take the OVER here as well. I do not like advising the unders as we are literally rooting for nothing to happen. So, this week, I found five overs worth taking. Dalvin Cook is coming off a 131-yard performance against the Cardinals. Cook has 91 or more yards in 10 of his last 14 games. The Seahawks just gave up nearly 200 yards to King Henry, so they are reeling. Ryan has him at 94 yards in this matchup. The only is over 85 but you can make up the possible points elsewhere.
490 points possible if you take and hit on these five picks.
