We are blessed this week with two Monday Night Football games and plenty of Monday Night Football player props. Both games should be high scoring and have playoff implications. The Chiefs, Bills and Cowboys are all leading their divisions. The Cardinals are right in the thick of the playoff race. The action kicks off with the Chiefs and Bills squaring off in Buffalo. Then the Cardinals travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. Andy Dalton will make his first start at quarterback after the devastating injury to Dak Prescott last week .
Below you can find a few Monday Night Football player props to close out Week 6 on a positive note.
Monday Night Football Player Props
Stefon Diggs – WR, Buffalo Over 5.5 Receptions (-125)
Diggs has been a star leading the team with 36 catches and over 500 yards receiving in only five games. He has had over five receptions in all but one game and was targeted 16 times last week. In a game that will most likely turn into a high scoring contest, Diggs is in line for another huge game as the Bills try and bounce back from last week’s loss to the Titans.
Mecole Hardman – WR, Kansas City Over 53.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
With the injury to Sammy Watkins, the Chiefs will need someone to fill his shoes as the number three option in the passing game. Mecole Hardman has elite speed and has the ability to produce huge plays vertically for the Kansas City offense. He has 13 receptions on only 17 attempts and is averaging almost 15 yards per catch. After the loss last week to the Raiders I expect Patrick Mahomes to play well against a Bills defense that was torched last week. Hardman should be in line for a much heavier workload and will have multiple opportunities to produce tonight.
DeAndre Hopkins – WR, Arizona Over 84.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
Hopkins is clearly the number one option for quarterback Kyler Murray and the Arizona passing attack. Hopkins leads the NFL in receiving yards and receptions and has been the most dominant receiver in the league. The Cowboys defense has been abysmal allowing 36 points per game which is the worst in the NFL. Arizona has a high-powered offense which should again cause the Cowboys a ton of problems defensively. Look for DeAndre Hopkins to have another big game indoors in perfect conditions against a struggling defense.
Just a reminder Sean and Ryan are competing in a handicapping contest, check out how they’re doing in the Capper Cup.
Ezekiel Elliott – RB, Dallas, At Least 21 Rushing Attempts (-118)
With the injury to Dak Prescott, I think the Cowboys will lean more on Elliott as the season moves on. Andy Dalton is a quality quarterback and has some weapons at receiver, but they need to depend on the running game with Elliott to win the time of possession battle which will then help out their weak defense. The Cardinals defense allows on average 124 rushing yards per game and have allowed over 100 yards rushing in four out of five games. I think Elliott gets a high number of touches and the Cowboys should have success with their running game.
