Player props can offer some of the best betting value on the board in any given week. They typically feature smaller limits and take less action than traditional game bets, so it’s not as imperative for the sportsbooks to hang accurate lines.
This is where the FantasyLabs Player Props tool comes in handy.
We take each prop bet listed across five of the most popular sportsbooks and leverage them against our player projections from Sean Koerner, the No. 1 in-season fantasy football ranker in each of the past three seasons.
Each prop bet then receives a grade, with 10 being the absolute best.
Our Props tool killed it in the last NBA season, with props graded a 10 covering at a 66.4% clip against the closing number. We currently have 29 props with a Bet Quality of 10 for Sunday’s NFL slate. Here are five props that are offering value for Week 2.
All lines are as of 9:30 a.m. ET on Sunday.
Panthers RB Christian McCaffrey
The pick: Over 4.5 receptions (-150 @ Sportsbook.com)
This matchup couldn’t set up much better for McCaffrey’s skill set, as the Falcons allowed the most receptions and fourth-most receiving yards to running backs in 2017. McCaffrey was the clear focal point of the Panthers’ game plan against Falcons last year to exploit those weaknesses, totaling five catches in each game on 14 total targets. Further, without Greg Olsen (foot), McCaffrey should be one of the primary beneficiaries of increased volume, along with Devin Funchess.
