There are two NFL player prop bets offering value in the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles matchup on Monday Night Football, which kicks off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The Action Network’s public betting data will often be used in this data-driven analysis of props.

So will the player props tool at FantasyLabs, which takes each prop bet listed across five of the most popular sportsbooks and leverages them against our player projections from Sean Koerner, the No. 1 in-season fantasy football ranker in each of the past three seasons.

*All odds as of 12 p.m. ET on Monday

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery

The pick: Under 55.5 receiving yards (-115)

Before the Golden Tate trade, Jeffery possessed 23.5% of the Eagles’ market share of targets, but since the Tate acquisition, he’s dropped to just 15.5% of their target share, seeing a meager 5.3 targets per game.

Overall, Jeffery hasn’t cleared 55 receiving yards since Week 7 against the Panthers and with  Carson Wentz’s propensity to spread the ball around and key in on Zach Ertz, Jeffery may continue to struggle with his yardage totals given his lack of volume of late.

Eagles WR Golden Tate

The pick: Under 49.5 receiving yards (-115)

Tate is second on the team in target share (19.5%) since joining the Eagles, but he’s averaging just 4.85 yards per target over his three active games, which is the worst mark on the team by nearly four yards. Unless Tate breaks off some big chunk plays it’s likely the under could be a solid bet again.
