The Action Labs Player Props tool has been helping bettors all season long.
For Monday Night Football, we have one thriving offense that's hosting one that has been underwhelming, to say the least. We're focused on a receiver from each team and that player's yards total.
Check out the two player props that stood out using Sean Koerner's player prop projections on Action Labs.
Under 68.5 Receiving Yards (FanDuel)
Mike Williams is the ultimate “Go Big or Go Home” fantasy player, and he’s gone big plenty since the start of last season.
The matchup against Denver isn’t a great one for him, though, because of Patrick Surtain II.
The Broncos’ No. 1 cornerback has found himself covering Williams plenty since he was drafted. Since Keenan Allen normally plays in the slot, Surtrain’s focus against the Chargers tends to be Williams.
Broncos +4 | Chargers -4
Last season, Williams went 4/39/0 and 3/63/1 against the Broncos. Allen was active in both of those games and was the Chargers’ most-targeted receiver.
Now, without Allen, the Broncos defense will be even more focused on containing Williams, who has registered more than 110 receiving yards in three of his last four games. The one game was against the Jaguars, which saw Justin Herbert play with a rib injury that caused him to clearly be less than 100%.
Under 24.5 Receiving Yards (BetMGM)
KJ Hamler has four targets this season and two catches for 65 yards in four games. His receiving yards total is 24.5, and our projections have him well short of that.
Hamler is technically the Broncos’ No. 3 receiver, but he hasn’t gotten that kind of treatment. Part of it is because the offense has struggled, and another reason is the top-two receivers — Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy — are so far ahead of the rest of Denver pass catchers.
Hamler has also played 20 or more snaps in only two of his four games this season, Weeks 1 and 5. He played 39 snaps last week against the Colts on Thursday Night Football and had just two targets.
Koerner’s projections have Hamler at 18 receiving yards on Monday Night Football, giving this a big edge.
