Thursday Night Football Player Props
Daniel Jones Under 237.5 Passing Yards: 105 Points
There was plenty of optimism for Jones heading into this season. Unfortunately for the young arm and his Giants, that optimism has been misplaced. In a dreadful 1-5 start to the season, the New York offense has sputtered. This is obviously due in large part to the loss of Saquon Barkley. Despite that, Jones has yet to find reliable help in his absence. Darius Slayton, his number one wide receiver, is boom or bust so far. Evan Engram, last season’s break out tight end, has yet to eclipse 65 yards in a game. Even the veteran pass catchers, Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard, have battled both with health and productivity. All in all, it’s been a rough go for Eli Manning’s heir apparent.
Through the first six weeks, Jones has only hit this Thursday Night Football Player Props number twice. Week 1 against the Steelers, he accumulated 279 yards. The following week, he posted 242 yards on the Bears. Since then he has failed to reach even 200 yards in all but one game. At the head of an anemic offense, Jones will have his work cut out for him this week. For one, he is facing an Eagles defense that is surprisingly only allowing just over 253 passing yards per game. Secondly, he is playing on a Thursday night which boasts historically low offensive games. Over half the quarterbacks this season have failed to hit this prop. Jones has more of a chance being one of them, than one of the exceptions.
Travis Fulgham Over 5.5 Receptions: 110 Points
Carson Wentz enters Thursday Night Football player props down two major weapons. Miles Sanders and Zach Ertz will both be missing from his quiver when the Eagles take on the Giants. These holes equal many opportunities for Fulgham to see what has quickly become his normal target share. Over a brief two week span, the second year breakout has garnered double digit targets from Wentz. He has rewarded his quarterback by catching more than this prop in both weeks.
He grabbed 10 of his 13 targets against the Steelers two weeks ago. Last week in a loss against the Ravens, he snagged six of his 10 looks. There is nothing to stop Fulgham from having another one of his multi-catch games. Kyle Allen managed to spread the ball around on the Giants defense last week. He also had the able bodied pass catchers to make that work. Wentz is thin in that regard and his newly christened lead receiver will command enough attention to make this prop an easy hit.
Boston Scott Over 75.5 Total Yards: 105
As stated before, Miles Sanders hasn’t participated in practice, and will likely not play. This paves the way for it to be the Boston Scott show. The Eagle offense is hemorrhaging playmakers and will lean heavily on the warm bodies they have left. Scott is in a fantastic position to capitalize on these losses. Historically, Scott owns the Giants. Last season in week 14, he amassed 128 total yards. He followed that up with a 138 yard explosion in week 17. The ball was basically his all night in both instances accounting for 39 total touches. Even with Corey Clement waiting in the wings, Scott has shown he is fully capable of a big night, especially against the New York Football Giants in Thursday Night Football player props.
Boston Scott’s two best games last season came against the Giants.
W14: 16 touches, 128 yards, TD
W17: 23 touches, 138 yards, 3 TD
2020 W7 opponent: NYG
* Corey Clement was not on the team last season

New York is averaging just over 89 yards per game to opposing rushers. They have also allowed at least 40 yards receiving to at least one running back in half of their games. It’s a little surprising given all he has going for him, that Scott is actually favored to not hit this prop. And while this may feel like a trap bet, there is more to feel good about here than not. What you are counting on here is for most people to look at what he has done this season and bet accordingly. Don’t make that mistake if you choose to add this to your picks.
DeSean Jackson Over 35.5 Receiving Yards: 105 Points
If you are looking for an opportunity to gain an edge if the bet hits, here is your chance. The Eagles are expected to see their long suffering wideout return this week from his latest injury stint. Should he suit up this prop seems set too low to pass up. In the first two games of 2020, he easily passed this mark. He had 11 yards in week 3 before his exit. We know Jackson has the talent to win this pick. If he plays, he has the opportunity to pick up a few extra targets given Zach Ertz not being on the field. He doesn’t need much to cash this and there will be many who will be too scared to take this chance. But in this case, the risk will be worth the reward.
