NFL Week 10 Fantasy Football Prop Bets
Sterling Shepard: Over 3.5 Receptions (-169)
With Golden Tate‘s role with the New York Giants now influx, Sterling Shepard has ascended to a larger target share. Since returning from a turf toe injury, Shepard has turned 26 targets into 20 receptions. With Philadelphia Eagles top cornerback Darius Slay likely to cover Giants wideout Darius Slayton, Shepard should easily crest this 3.5 reception prop. In the Eagles 22-21 win on October 22nd, Shepard converted eight targets into six receptions, 59 receiving yards, and a touchdown.
Carson Wentz: Over 14.5 Rushing Yards (-112)
Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz is always a threat to run, and has surpassed this rushing total in four of the past six games. The Eagles will have many more offensive weapons available than they did in the first meeting with New York. Offensive tackle Lane Johnson, running back Miles Sanders, tight end Dallas Goedert, and potentially wide receiver Alshon Jeffery should all be available for Sunday’s NFC East road matchup. Look for Wentz to take advantage of running lanes and reach this rushing yardage prop.
Joshua Kelley: Under 43.5 Rushing Yards (-134)
Joshua Kelley has fallen out of favor with the Los Angeles Chargers coaching staff, and has failed to reach this yardage total in each of the past six games. He has seen Justin Jackson, Kalen Ballage, and even Troymaine Pope have a larger role in the Los Angeles backfield. With Kelley’s confidence reportedly waning, this continues to be a full running back by committee backfield. Even in a favorable matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders, this number is too high for the struggling rookie.
Quintez Cephus: Over 9.5 Receiving Yards (-125)
Quintez Cephus returned to the field last week against the Minnesota Vikings, and caught both of his targets for 31 receiving yards. With Detroit Lions leading wide receiver Kenny Golladay again sidelined (hip), the 6-foot-1, 202 pound rookie wide receiver should see enough production to again reach double-digits in receiving yards. In the three games without Golladay, Cephus has averaged five targets and 42.7 receiving yards.
James Conner: Under 22.5 Receiving Yards (-119)
The Cincinnati Bengals are surprisingly good at limiting receptions by running backs. They have allowed the third-fewest receptions (28) and fourth-fewest receiving yards by running backs. In a Pittsburgh Steelers home game with a seven-point spread, Pittsburgh will not need James Conner‘s receiving prowess with their myriad of talented offensive options. And Conner has failed to reach this total in six of Pittsburgh’s eight games this season.
These are some of the NFL Week 10 fantasy football prop bets that fans can wager on this week.
