Player Prop Bets can be the best way to make a quick buck, and Week 4 is no exception. The fine folks at Underdog Fantasy do a great job at creating well-balanced props, but every week there are a handful of picks that just feel like free money. Today, we’ll take a closer look at six of the bets most likely to pay off in the upcoming slate of games.
Top Six Week 4 Pick’Em Player Prop Bets
Travis Kelce: OVER 92.5 Rec. Yards
Normally, I try to stay away from the over on big numbers like this. However, the opportunity is just too good here. Travis Kelce is the best pass-catching tight end in football, and he’s catching passes from the best young quarterback in the game. Kelce has exceeded the 92.5-yard threshold in each of the past two games, and I don’t see that changing in Week 4.
No defense can really stop this guy, but Philadelphia offers basically no resistance. Their linebackers are safeties are among the worst in the league, as they allowed Dalton Schultz to go off for 80 yards and two touchdowns last week.

Marquise Brown – OVER 54.5 Receiving Yards
If it weren’t for Mike Williams, we’d be talking about Marquise Brown as one of the biggest out-of-nowhere superstars in fantasy football. The former first-round pick has a massive target share, and he should easily crush the over on this one. He exceeded 54.5 receiving yards in the first two games of the season, and finished Week 3 with 53 receiving yards. Of course, he should have easily topped this number were it not for two massive drops.
Yes, Rashod Bateman is practicing and could make his debut in Week 4. However, there is no guarantee he plays, and even if he does, he’s still a rookie coming off a serious injury. Chances are, he’s going to need some time before he’s ready to steal too many targets from Brown.
Devin Singletary – UNDER 58.5 Rush + Receiving Yards
Devin Singletary looked like the Buffalo running back to own in Week 1, but Zack Moss is starting to steal his thunder. The Bills take on the Houston Texans in Week 4, so this game should get out of hand fast. Unfortunately for Singletary, this game script favors Moss. Moss handles most of the goal line and passing work, and he actually beat Singletary in snaps and touches during last week’s blowout victory over the Washington Football Team. Zack Moss appears to be Buffalo’s primary guy, so I’m taking the under on any and all Singletary bets.
Chuba Hubbard – OVER 3.5 Receptions
Christian McCaffrey suffered his hamstring injury midway through Week 3’s contest, and Chuba Hubbard still managed to record three receptions. Now, given a full starter’s workload, Hubbard should be able to easily reach four or more receptions.
One game is admittedly a pretty small sample, but history shows that Carolina likes to use McCaffrey’s backup very similarly to McCaffrey himself. Last year, Mike Davis saw notable playing time in 14 of Carolina’s games. In those games, he managed to record four or more receptions on eight separate occasions. Assuming a similar workload, that gives Hubbard a pretty solid shot of hitting the over.
If Chuba Hubbard is the starting RB for the Panthers next week, is he a top 12 RB against the Cowboys?

Amon-Ra St. Brown – UNDER 24.5 Receiving Yards
I have no idea how Amon-Ra St. Brown has this prop. The rookie fourth-round pick has yet to record 25 or more receiving yards in a single game, and it’s hard to see that changing any time soon. The rookie’s snap share has decreased in each of the past three games, as guys like Quintez Cephus and Kalif Raymond are proving to be better receivers.
Additionally, this matchup against the Chicago Bears probably won’t have a favorable game script. The Bears will be starting either a very banged-up Andy Dalton or a clearly not ready Justin Fields. This game projects for one of the lowest yardage totals in the league, which means St. Brown will not have many opportunities to break off a big play.
George Kittle – UNDER 69.5 Receiving Yards
Wrapping up the Week 4 player prop bets is George Kittle. Kittle might not play in Week 4 and, even if he does, he’ll probably be extremely limited. Yes, Kittle is one of the most talented tight ends in football, but he missed Wednesday and Thursday’s practices, so I’m staying far away from him on this one.
