SNF PLAYER PROPS: BILLS AT DOLPHINS
Bills RB James Cook over rushing yards
I’m still trying to figure out what’s wrong with the Bills passing attack of late, but I want to steer clear of it as much as possible. Josh Allen has failed to go over 170 passing yards in two of his last three games, and he’s also completed 50% or fewer of his passes in two. Something is off. The only thing we can be sure of right now for Buffalo is that James Cook’s volume has increased.
The third-year back has had at least 16 carries in the last three games, leading me to believe his over is worth a look. The Buffalo offense has quietly transformed into one of the league’s better ground attacks, averaging 130.3 rushing yards per contest (7th). When the Dolphins stepped up in class against the Ravens’ elite running attack last week, they were bulldozed for 6.1 YPC by Justice Hill and Gus Edwards. I struggle to see them slowing down Cook, especially without Bradley Chubb coming off one of the edges. Chubb is primarily a pass rusher, but he led the team in tackles for loss at 11. His presence will be missed in both the pass and run game.
Dolphins TE Durham Smythe over receiving yards
With Waddle out, someone has to see increased volume in the offense; enter Durham Smythe. Once Waddle exited the Week 16 game after just 28 offensive snaps, Smythe has been Tua’s security blanket in the passing attack. We’ve seen him go for 56 and 54 receiving yards in the last two weeks. It’ll be a tad trendy since his workload is on the upswing, but it’s got a good shot at going over if Tyreek Hill is playing through injury. Hill sustained a left ankle injury against the Titans a few weeks ago; however, he also left last week’s game against the Ravens after landing awkwardly while attempting to make a catch on 3rd and 10. If Hill’s ankle is bothering him and he’s not getting separation, look for Smythe to see increased work, as he’s been a reliable target of late.
Dolphins RB De’Von Achane over rushing yards
The Bills’ defense has been stout against the run, only giving up 80.7 yards to running backs per game. Take that number with a grain of salt, as they’ve only faced two teams (Dolphins & Eagles) that sit inside the top 10 in rushing this season. When they met the Eagles in Week 12, Siriani’s tailbacks torched the Bills’ defense for 120 yards on the ground, averaging 6.6 yards a pop. When they last played the Phins in Week 4, the rookie running back shredded them for 101 yards.
The step-up in class hasn’t been kind to McDermott’s defense, and I’d expect Achane to burn them again. Raheem Mostert also missed last week’s game with knee and ankle injuries, leading me to believe he’s not a significant threat to vulture carries from the rookie. As always, check the inactive before kickoff to see if anything changes.
Best of luck betting on SNF player props!
