Every year, the NFL becomes more of a passing league with stud receivers dominating.
During the 2021-22 season, sportsbooks are offering a wide array of player proposition bets, including the league leaders in receiving yards, touchdowns, and more. On this page, we break down those season-long propositions with recommendations about specific receivers. Once the season starts, we’ll update this page to include weekly proposition bets for key individual receivers.

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. In 2020, Julio Jones had the highest preseason projection (1,525.5) in terms of receiving yardage, but finished well behind Michael Thomas at the end of the year. Thomas had odds over +1000 on many sportsbooks, so a $10 preseason bet on Thomas to lead the league in receiving yards likely profited $100 or more.
Most receiving TDs
This propositions bettors to pick the receiver most likely to lead the league in receiving scores. While Thomas posted the most yardage in 2020, Detroit Lions WR Kenny Golladay led the NFL with 11 receiving TDs. Golladay would have been a preseason longshot to lead the league, along with the only other players to finish with double-digit receiving TDs — Rams WR Cooper Kupp and Ravens TE Mark Andrews — so a preseason bet on Golladay likely paid off handsomely.
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 Steelers, 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: DeAndre Hopkins 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.
