A.J. Brown OPOY Odds
Brown leapfrogged a lot of names after the Eagles defeated the Dolphins Sunday night. Before the Sunday games kicked off, Brown was priced at +4000. His 137 receiving yards on the night outpaced Hill by 49, a critical piece in winning this award. He’s only 97 yards behind Hill on the season with a matchup against Washington this week. When they played in Week 4, Brown notched 175 receiving yards and two scores. If he can replicate that performance, he could close the gap on Hill even more this weekend.
One thing to monitor with Philadelphia is that QB Jalen Hurts wore a knee brace in the second half of the game against Miami. While he said after the game that he would be fine, the team could be hesitant to have him run a lot if it’s bothering him. If that’s the case, Brown could be the beneficiary in the passing game.
Stefon Diggs OPOY odds
After losing to the Patriots Sunday, Diggs slightly slipped in the odds board. He was priced at +2000 before kickoff, and now the best price available is . The problem facing Diggs is that the Bills may not win enough games at this rate for him to win the award. Each of the last three winners that were receivers saw their team win at least 12 games. With their in-season win total sitting at and their defense suffering key injuries, Diggs’ path to winning requires him to catch Hill in receiving yards.
bYE WEEK BUY POINT?
An interesting situation is about to present itself in Week 10. Hill, Brown, and Puka Nacua – the three leaders in receiving yards at the time of publishing – will all be on their bye week. If you think someone can close the gap on them that week, it would be an intriguing time to hop in and grab a ticket on that player. Diggs is fourth in receiving yards and plays the Broncos that week on Monday Night Football. Ja’Marr Chase, who sits ninth in receiving yards, plays the Texans in Week 10.
I remain bullish that these two are the only other receivers still worth a flyer in this market outside of Brown. If you think Hill is vulnerable or think someone can close the distance on him, Week 10 is probably your entry point.

Ultimately, I think Hill still wins this award. He’ll likely have 1,000 receiving yards before November with nine games remaining. Brown is intriguing, but he plays two games at home in December. It’s much harder to throw in Philadelphia in December than in Miami. If Hill goes down with an injury, this market gets incredibly interesting. It can also get interesting if Tua goes down with an injury. Best of luck betting OPOY Odds!
