NFL Props: Chiefs-Chargers
Tyreek Hill Under 79.5 Receiving Yards
This year, the Chiefs offense hasn’t been as explosive due to opposing teams playing more two-shell coverage against them and forcing Patrick Mahomes to throw underneath more.
It’s a trend that has prevented Hill from having any ceiling games this year and caused a significant dip in his yards per catch — going from 14.7 a year ago to 11.4 this season.
The Chargers play two-high shell at the third-highest rate in the league, and they’ve only allowed a QB rating of 56.6 on throws 20+ yards downfield. This matchup sets up better for Travis Kelce, especially if Derwin James in unable to suit up tonight. I’m projecting Hill closer to a median of 72.5 receiving yards tonight and would bet this down to 77.5.
