NFL Week 3 WR props

Each Friday throughout the season we will highlight individual player prop bet options.

Garrett Wilson (Over 4.5 receptions / Over 47.5 receiving yards)

The rookie out of Ohio State is ballin with the ninth-most targets and fourth-most air yards in the NFL through two games. It doesn’t hurt that Wilson is playing in a pass-heavy offense that averages a league-high 52 attempts per game. The Jets (+6) are expected to play catch-up again this week against a Bengals squad that’s averaging the second-most passes per game (44.5). Cincy’s secondary has been underperforming so far and Wilson is averaging 2.23 yards of separation per route.

Tyler Lockett (Under 58.5 receiving yards / Under 5.5 receptions)

The Seahawks are playing at such a slow pace that they’re averaging the fourth-fewest passing YPG (178.5) despite passing at the seventh-highest rate. Lockett was able to get loose for 107 yards on 9 catches last week, but he’s a classic boom-bust receiver who should have more duds now that he can no longer run scramble drills with Russell Wilson. Atlanta ranks 18th in DVOA pass defense and 31st against the run after playing much more complete offensive teams in the Saints and Rams. The Falcons have an elite combination of corners in A.J. Terrell and Casey Hayward.

Christian McCaffrey (Over 4.5 receptions / 36.5 receiving yards)

The Panthers need to get CMC involved more as a passer to jumpstart their dormant offense. Baker Mayfield is pressing by looking downfield too often, but the Saints defense might force him to check down to his prolific RB. McCaffrey has still caught four balls for 25 YPG over his first two games this season and he’s handling a monstrous workload with the highest snap share (86.4%) and fifth-highest target share (17.3%) among RBs. He’s averaging 7 catches for 68.3 YPG over his last three outings against New Orleans.

Most receiving yards

This is an open proposition where bettors can select the WR or tight end they think has the best chance to lead the NFL in receiving yards. Justin Jefferson and Cooper Kupp were the favorites entering the 2022 NFL season as Jefferson was +800 at DraftKings Sportsbook and Kupp was +900.

Most receiving TDs

This propositions bettors to pick the receiver most likely to lead the league in receiving scores. Kupp is again in the mix of favorites, coming in at +500 at DraftKings. Ja’Marr Chase joins him with +500 odds to lead the NFL in receiving TDs.

Player totals: Receiving yards over/under

Instead of betting on the league leaders, bettors can take individual prop bets on specific players. There are projected totals assigned to many of the top receivers in the league with odds for taking the Over or Under on each projection. Once the season gets underway, players will be assigned a projection for specific games. So for example, ahead of the Bills’ Week 1 matchup with the Rams, there will be a prop on whether Stefon Diggs goes over or under a listed number of receiving yards set by a sportsbook.

Player totals: Receiving TDs over/under

The same props are available on a weekly or season-long basis for receiving touchdowns. These props are obviously much lower than receiving totals, which makes sense considering only three players posted double-digit receiving TDs last season. Once the season starts, prop bets will be available on whether star receivers catch 1 or 2 TDs, with the odds usually listed in between each number (example: Ja’Marr Chase O/U 1.5 receiving TDs) to avoid a “push” where the bettor gets their wager back because the outcome falls exactly on the projection.
