The NFL has metamorphosed into a passing league over the last decade and it’s got a bevy of talented pass catchers that go to work every passing Sunday. Trying to figure out the ones that excel any given week has become quite the chore with so many teams sporting multiple studs that can go off at a moment’s notice. Which one’s got the best matchups? Who owns their opponent like Aaron Rodgers owns the Chicago Bears? Who’s going to get shadow coverage and who isn’t?
Don’t worry about all that noise - These are the pass catchers you’re going to want to ride at PointsBet Sportsbook in Week 7!
Bet Week 7 WR Props at PointsBet Sportsbook
Terry McLaurin Over 50.5 Receiving Yards -120
The Commanders passing attack was shot out of cannon to start the season with rookie Jahan Dotson, Curtis Samuel, and even Dyami Brown getting into the scoring act. Notice the one name you didn’t see there? The best one on Washington’s roster otherwise known as WR1 Terry McLaurin. This dude has rotted away watching his teammates reap all the spoils of Carson Wentz’s hot start. Thankfully, Wentz is out of commission for the foreseeable future which opens the door for McLaurin to bust through!
He’s back with his ride or die in Taylor Heinicke with the duo making sweet music with one another a season ago. While they weren’t consistent at all, the first shot out of the gate supersedes any doubts we should have about the Commandos WR1 logging his biggest showing of the season against a Packers defense in disarray after giving up three second half touchdowns and losing to the Jets on the “Frozen Tundra” last week.
Alec Pierce Over 43.5 Receiving Yards +102
I really like what I’ve seen from the rookie through his first four starts. Averaging 15.1 yards per reception and starting to build a real nice chemistry with Matt Ryan, the former Cincinnati Bearcat finds himself in an excellent position to succeed this week running up against the weak link of Tennessee’s defense. The Titans secondary has been ripped for a league-worst 287.6 passing yards per game and 15.2 yards per reception.
While I don’t think the Colts will need to throw the ball 58 times like it did last week against the Jaguars in order to pull off the comeback win, I can’t help but think Frank Reich demands OC Marcus Brady stick to last week’s script after the showing was Indy’s best of the season. Alec Pierce went for 80 yards on four receptions in the first meeting with the Titz. It only took six targets to get there. His receiving yards prop is way too low for the rematch!
Davante Adams Over 83.5 Receiving Yards -115
The Raiders went into their bye on a major downer after dropping a 30-29 decision to the Chiefs in Arrowhead. They come out of it owners of a 1-4 SU record and are essentially playing for their postseason lives entering Week 7. I’m expecting a determined effort to be put forth by the Silver and Black against the also rested Texans who’ve been a surprise for NFL bettors by going 3-1-1 ATS in their first five games.
Lovie’s squad has been competitive, but it’s also taken on a very shaky cast of opponents. They’re going to get the Raiders best shot! I’ve already suggested backing the over of Derek Carr’s passing yards prop so it goes without saying that I love Davante Adams in this spot as well. There’s a reason why Adams is the owner of the highest receiving yards prop in Week 7 - He’s gonna let out all that pent up frustration over pushing that photographer and go nuclear!
Jaylen Waddle Over 58.5 Receiving Yards -115
Tua Tagovailoa will be back under center for the Dolphins on Sunday night. That means even more fantasy goodness will be had by all that have both Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle on their fantasy rosters. Even more so for those looking to attack their player props with the duo set to go HAM in front of a nationally televised audience. With Tua under center the first three weeks of the season, Miami looked like a team that could win a Super Bowl as electric the offense was. While Minkah Fitzpatrick is expected back this and the Steelers did a sensational job limiting the Bucs passing attack last week, the Fins are a different animal.
Pittsburgh’s pass D ranks No. 30 overall and it’s flat-out gotten destroyed by any and all receivers lined up in the slot. I’d look to back either Hill or Waddle with the two bouncing around the line of scrimmage seemingly every snap. With the Steelers ranked No. 30 in pressure rate and Tua already excelling evidenced by a -0.11 EPA when under pressure (No. 3), he’s going to be able to stand tall in the pocket and find his wide open receivers all game long. Miami’s gonna run laps around Pittsburgh on Sunday night and Waddle will be one of the main reasons why. The only way he doesn’t go over this impost is if that shoulder injury incurred late against the Vikings last week turns out to be more of an issue than he’s led on all week.
Waddle over the number is my favorite prop of the bunch!
