With Week 3 behind us, it is time to turn our attention to Week 4 and the perfect player props to target. The article below is going to give the three best NFC player prop bets for Week 4 based on certain trends that have been occurring during the young NFL season from players and their opponents defenses and why bettors should target them.
Best Player Prop Bets Week 4 – NFC Edition
D’Andre Swift: Over 64.5 Rushing Yards
After a horrible Week 1 debut with his new team, D’Andre Swift has emerged as the number one running back in an efficient Philadelphia Eagles run offense which makes his over on rushing yards this week a premier play.
After that disappointing Week 1 performance, Swift has rushed for 305 yards on 42 carries combined from Week 2 and 3. In his previous two games, he has eclipsed the 64.5 rushing yard line with ease, going for 175 yards in Week 2 and 130 yards in Week 3. Running behind that strong Eagles offensive line has been more than beneficial for Swift as well.
Bettors should target Swift because of another favorable matchup with the Washington Commanders. This season the Commanders have given up 4.8 yards per carry to opposing running backs. On top of that, they have allowed opposing starting running backs to average 80.7 yards per game.
Swift will continue to receive volume in this Eagles offense, especially if the Eagles get out to a comfortable lead and need to utilize the run game to put this game away in the 2nd half. Bettors should trust Swift to continue his outstanding production and go over his line of 64.5 rushing yards.
Alexander Mattison: Over 50.5 Rushing Yards
Alexander Mattison’s rushing yard line should be on the radar of every single bettor out there. Although he went under in both Week 1 and 2, he was able to go over this line in Week 3, and his chances for Week 4 look just as good.
Mattison in his best game so far carried the ball 20 times for 93 yards and averaged 4.7 yards per carry. This week he gets a Carolina Panthers defense that is atrocious against the run. The Panthers allow 4.5 yards per carry and 114.7 yards per game to opposing starting running backs.
With the Minnesota Vikings expected to control this game being favored, Mattison is expected to get high volume against this weak Panthers run defense. Bettors should consider taking the over on this valuable rushing line.
Rondale Moore Over 2.5 Receptions
Rondale Moore is an interesting play that bettors should consider even though he is going against a tough San Francisco 49ers defense.
Moore in his first three games has gone over this line twice and missed once. The reason this play looks so good is the 49ers allow the 4th most receptions to wide receivers and the most to running backs.
Looking deeper, the 49ers weakness against slot receivers is evident. In three weeks, the 49ers have allowed 37 receptions to wide receivers lined up in the slot. Moore is the slot wide receiver in this Arizona Cardinals offense showing that the opportunities to rack up receptions will be there. Moore also lines up at running back so getting receptions from the backfield is another plus for over bettors.
The Cardinals are going to have to pass to keep up with this 49ers offense, so betting the over on Moore is a great look especially with such a low line at 2.5 receptions.
