We cashed one of three NFL player prop bets last week over at Caesars Sportsbook though an injury played a role in the poor showing. J.K. Dobbins looked well on his way towards hitting the over of his rushing prop with eight carries and 22 yards through the first half of the second quarter, but the Ravens injury-riddled RB1 would shred his Achilles on his second catch of the game. Unfortunately, the injury might be a career ender. The lone ticket cash proved to be Brian Robinson who just got the job done needing all 19 of his carries to exceed his 57.5-yard impost. Though the Chargers racked up 433 yards of total offense, 233 of them came on the ground with Kellen Moore electing to run the ball 40 times which prevented Justin Herbert from exceeding his 290.5 passing yard prop. Winning the time of possession battle by 5+ minutes still saw Los Angeles go down in defeat. Hopefully he lets the stud let it rip moving forward! Let’s see if we can get in the black in Week 2 with some player prop best bet winners – SLAM YOUR MAN!!

The Bills lost a gutwrencher on Monday night to the Jets in a game Zach Wilson was forced into action due to the season-ending Achilles injury suffered by Aaron Rodgers. The worst thing about the overtime defeat was the fact that Josh Allen played a large role in it with his four turnovers opening the door for the comeback win. The Jets defense has had his number ever since Robert Saleh took over the head coaching reins. Though Vegas went into Denver and upset the Broncos last week, the defense still allowed Russell Wilson to play to a 108.0 QB rating and complete 27 of 34 passes with a pair hitting pay dirt. I fully expect the Raiders to play the role of the sacrificial lamb that gets Allen back in the good graces of his fantasy and player prop supporters.
The Chicago Bears dropped a steaming hot deuce in front of the Soldier Field faithful against the Packers last week that had fans of the beloved up in arms about Justin Fields, the coaching staff, and why they continue to go through the agony of being a fan of the franchise. It was so bad that the Bears QB1 felt the need to come out publicly with an apology. “It definitely hurts, not only because it’s the first game of the season and it’s a loss, but it’s a loss to them,” Fields said, per the Chicago Tribune. “Just want to say sorry to teammates and all the fans that were rooting for us. We’ll bounce back and be good.” I get that Tampa’s defense just went into Minnesota and shut the Vikings down, but they’re in for a rude awakening thinking that win categorizes them as a good team. Fields will run circles around that aging defense and get D.J. Moore involved. Don’t be shy about betting on an anytime touchdown either!
The Rams shocked the NFL betting world by going into Seattle and skunking the division rival Seahawks in their season opener. Tutu Atwell and Puka Nacua were two of the main reasons why with the duo combining for 238 yards and 16 receptions on a whopping 23 targets from Matthew Stafford. Seattle had injury issues in its secondary heading into the game and lost another cover man in-game. With Nacua making everyone forget about Cooper Kupp for at least one week, the Rams shiny new rookie wide receiver ended up being one of the biggest gets on waiver wires in fantasy football leagues this week. Peeps exhausted large percentages of their bank rolls to get him on their roster for this matchup against the rival 49ers. Did you see what San Francisco’s defense did to the Steelers last week? It was nightmarish! Don’t @ me when he snags three balls for 30 or so yards and fails to go over his receiving yards prop now that the book is out on him!
