Now that we have a couple of games in the books, we have a better idea of what to expect from teams and players. That makes our NFL Player prop Bets Week 3 even more appealing.
The fantasy football slate has been challenging, but player props only increase the football fun. For this week, we’re looking at touchdown player props that offer large wins. Just hitting one of these bets brings a huge return on investment.
Let’s take a look at some of those favorable NFL Player Prop Bets Week 3 to target on this glorious first weekend of football.
All lines courtesy of DraftKings.
Alec Ingold (RB) Miami Dolphins TD +2000
The Dolphins love using the fullback in their new offense. Ingold is in the game on 37% of the snaps this
season and most importantly near the goal line. Miami lacks a true goal-line runner and we’ve already
seen Ingold get touches with a chance to score a TD. These odds are an outstanding value.
Boston Scott (RB) Philadelphia Eagles TD +400
Scott is utilized heavily in the red zone and we already hit on him in Week 1. He is also a threat to score
multiple TDs in this game. He did it twice in nine games last season and totaled seven TDs. Most weeks
he’s a strong bet because having four rushing options that are a TD threat drives his odds up.
J.D. McKissic (RB) Washington Commanders TD +370
McKissic is a guy who is game-script dependent and it’s likely the Eagles beat up on the Commanders in
this one. This should lead to us seeing a lot more of him, particularly in the second half. Coming off a
seven-target game he’s a threat to find the end zone if he catches the ball in space inside the 20. This
will likely be the heaviest utilization we see from him up to this point. A pair of scores bet would return a massive +3000.
Tyler Allgeier (RB) Atlanta Falcons TD +400
Allgeier is going to get about half the carries in this game and his greatest strength coming out of college was his
ability to pound the ball into the end zone. He scored 23 TDs at BYU last year. The Falcons’ ability to get
near the goal line is a bit scary, but they should manage against the Seahawks this week.
Dontrell Hilliard (RB) Tennessee Titans TD +400, 2 TD +4000
We already saw Hilliard score two TDs in his only game this season. He’s a big play threat who can score
from anywhere. If you believe the Raiders will win this game, he’s likely to see plenty of work in the
second half. With the Raiders having the lead and a bad defense, things line up well for Hilliard and the
odds are nice.
Jordan Mason (RB) San Francisco 49ers TD +450
The odds are skewed here thanks to the unknown, and you should use them in your favor. We’ve seen
the 49ers running backs drop like flies again, per usual. However, we know that last week before getting
injured Tyrion Davis-Price carries the ball 14 times, and Mason is expected to slide into his role. These
odds are too good to ignore.
Braxton Berrios (WR) New York Jets TD +750
Berrios is coming off a six-target game and has the benefit of playing in the most pass-happy offense in
the league. Joe Flacco is throwing the ball more than 50 times a game this year. Berrios also has the
additional advantage of being a dangerous returner.
Cole Beasley (WR) Tampa Bay Buccaneers TD +650
We don’t know how Beasley will be utilized this week, but there’s a real chance he has a significant role
thanks to all the injuries and the Mike Evans suspension. If Julio Jones suits up it puts a bit of a damper
on this bet. However, if he doesn’t these odds are worth the risk.
Mack Hollins (WR) Las Vegas Raiders TD +350, 2 TD +3500
Hollins is a big-bodied wideout playing almost 90% of the snaps and coming off an eight-target game.
With Hunter Renfrow ruled out with a concussion, Hollins will see a bump in utilization. He’s a strong
candidate to find the end zone in this one against a Titans defense that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts.
David Sills (WR) New York Giants TD +600
Sills is 6-foot-3 and was on the field for 92% of the offensive snaps last week for the Giants. He saw four
targets and looks to be an important part of New York’s game plan. Not one wideout was on the field more
than him. It’s not farfetched to bet on one of those targets coming in the red zone.
Isaiah Likely (TE) Baltimore Ravens TD +450
Likely has seen nine targets through two games and Rashod Bateman was a late-week addition to the
injury report. This is a slam dunk option if Bateman is out, but a solid bet either way. We know Bill
Belichick is going to scheme up a defense to take away Mark Andrews. This should open up more
opportunities for the rookie tight end.
Juwan Johnson (TE) New Orleans Saints TD +370
Johnson has separated himself as the clear No. 1 tight end in New Orleans. He’s dominating snaps and
targets. With 12 targets through two games and the frame to make plays in the end zone, he’s a good
bet to get in this week against a struggling Panthers team.
O.J. Howard (TE) Houston Texans TD +425, 2 TD +4000
With Brevin Jordan out, routes and targets should open up for Howard. The team will get Pharoah
Brown back this week. However, he’s more of a blocking tight end. Howard already has two TDs on the year and is
a candidate to score another in this one.
