Thursday Night Football Player Props
1. Kenyan Drake Under 60.5 Rushing Yards: 100 Points
The Cardinals backfield can truly be considered a three-headed beast. It’s already frustrating enough trying to figure out touches between Drake and Chase Edmonds. Add to that the quarterback/running back that is Kyler Murray and the waters muddy even more. This makes the under here a safer bet than most.
While the Seattle defense has been suspect in the passing game many times this season, their rushing defense has been solid. They come into Thursday night fourth in the league against the run with just under 100 yards per game allowed. This does not bode well for the Arizona backs in general and Drake specifically.
He has faced this defense once before in week 7 with little success. Despite being injured in the matchup, he played right up until the 4:12 mark in the 4th quarter. In that time, he managed only 34 yards on 14 carries. Don’t be deceived by the 100 yard game Drake posted last week against Buffalo. The Bills are buried towards the bottom of the league in rushing yards allowed. His lack of success against the Seahawks coupled with his timeshare puts this pick a solid investment in Thursday Night Football player props.
2. DeAndre Hopkins Over 89.5 Receiving Yards: 100 Points
Hopkins has provided us social media gold after his game winning touchdown catch last week. In doing so, he capped off a 127 yard performance against the Bills. There is no doubt who the main target is in Arizona when Kyler Murray is throwing the ball. He’s seen almost twice as many targets (88) as Larry Fitzgerald (47) this season. Even more impressive is that he only has nine less receptions than Fitzgerald, Christian Kirk, and Andy Isabella have combined.
Against the Seahawks in week 7, Hopkins saw a team leading 12 targets. He caught 10 of them for 103 yards and a touchdown. One thing to take into consideration though may be his peculiar track record of posting a 100-yard outing followed by a game in which he fails to reach that mark. In these games following the century, he has also failed to reach this prop. As quirky as that might be, it shouldn’t be cause for much alarm. It should also not scare you off using this as one of your ThriveFantasy Player Prop picks.
There will be no slowing down the league’s second leading receiver in total yards this week. He will be facing a Seattle defense that is dead last in the league against the passing game. All signs are pointing to another decent outing for Hopkins. He should see his normal workload and as a result, reach this mark with relative ease.
3. Russell Wilson Over 2.5 Pass TD’s + INT: 110 Points
While many are writing off Wilson’s bid for league MVP, he is still one of the best in the game. You may look at last week and want to shy away from this prop, but you’d be wrong. Russ did not cook against the Rams for sure, and he also did not hit this mark in the process. But, last week was the only time this year that he has not thrown for at least 3 combined touchdowns and interceptions. In fact, his lowest output outside of last week, was a 2 touchdown, 1 interception outing in week 4 against the Dolphins.
Also in his corner is the fact that the Cardinals defense has allowed 3 of the last four quarterbacks to hit this prop. This includes Wilson who threw for 3 touchdowns and three interceptions in week 7 against Arizona. Given these stats, it’s a little surprising to have the over here worth more. This makes it a perfect spot to grab some extra points in your contest and a lock in Thursday Night Football player props.
4. Carlos Hyde Over 35.5 Rush Yards + Rec Yards: 105 Points
This pick will depend of course on the health of Hyde which as of Tuesday looks like he’ll be back on the field. Hyde was listed as a full participant on the practice report signaling a return to play on Thursday. Chris Carson also practiced, but was a limited participant. Even still, the bar is set low enough for this prop to hit and hit early. In their last meeting with Arizona, Hyde rushed for 68 yards alone. He didn’t even need his 8 receiving yards to cash this bet.
The Cardinals are middle of the pack in terms of rushing yards allowed. They also haven’t given up any big games to running backs in the receiving game either. All that said, he only needs one or two big runs to earn you these points. Or, give him 9 carries and hope he gets his 4 yard per carry average on each. Either way, this pick in Thursday Night Football player props is one of the easiest to get on the entire slate.
