The top 5 player props for Week 9 of the NFL season includes plays on the Cincinnati Bengals’ Ja’Marr Chase and Atlanta Falcons’ Bijan Robinson.
5 best player prop bets for NFL Week 9
Ja’Marr Chase Over 85.5 receiving yards
Chase is clicking in recent weeks, a trend coinciding with Joe Burrow’s improved health. He’s averaging 13.6 targets since Week 3 and has seen double-digit looks in four of his last five. Chase owns a staggering 33.5 percent target share, and will continue to be leaned heavily upon against the Buffalo Bills this week.
DK Metcalf Over 58.5 receiving yards
Metcalf is the Seahawks’ leading receiver, pacing the team with 404 receiving yards. He’s coming off a Week 8 that featured 14 targets. The volume will likely decrease this Sunday, but he’s averaging 15.0 yards per grab, so he’s not a player who necessarily requires high reception totals to deliver big yardage output.
Bijan Robinson Over 59.5 rushing yards
The Falcons are making a change at quarterback, benching Desmond Ridder in favor of Taylor Heinicke. We’re not going to pretend that this will transform the Falcons into an upper-echelon offense, but sometimes such a change can turn things around to a degree. We’re counting on the change settling the offense enough to propel Robinson to at least 60 rushing yards.
Roschon Johnson Over 39.5 rushing + receiving yards
The signs suggest Tyson Bagent will make another start for the Bears, removing Justin Fields as a rushing threat. Johnson’s 24 snaps last week marked the second highest of the season, a modest number but a promising one considering he missed the previous two contests with a concussion. He surpassed 40 total yards in his first three contests, and if his playing time continues to trend upward, another 40-plus yard performance is in the cards.
Mark Andrews Anytime TD
Andrews leads the Ravens with six touchdowns and his 45 targets represents a 20.1 percent target share. He has multiple touchdowns in two games and he’s scored in more games (four) than he’s been held out of the paint (three). The Seahawks haven’t been the most generous to opposing tight ends, but the Cardinals featured their tight ends for 10 targets two weeks ago and surrendered a 4-77-1 line to David Njoku last Sunday.
