NFL Player Prop Bets Week 5

NFL TD and Player Props to consider in Week 5

To say it has been a challenging start to the 2022 football season would be an understatement. The good news is there are plenty of ways to overcome a rough first month of fantasy football. Our NFL Player Prop Bets Week 5 can help you turn your fortunes around.

In addition to rooting for your players, rooting for props increases the fun. The fact that just one or two of these hits results in some nice payoffs is even better!

Here are some of the NFL Player Props Week 5 that we’ll be targeting.

Touchdown Props


Jacoby Brissett (QB) Cleveland Browns 1TD +500 2TD +5000

Brissett is consistently one of the better QBs to bet on for TD runs. The Dolphins, Colts, and Patriots used to bring him in just for short-yardage situations when he wasn’t starting. His size, strength, and ability to run always make him a threat to score in the red zone. 

Caleb Huntley (RB) Atlanta Falcons 1TD +600

The odds on this seem off to the point that maybe Vegas knows something we don’t. Nevertheless, when Patterson came out last week Huntley split carries evenly with rookie Tyler Allgeier and he was the one to score the TD. These odds are far too good to pass up. 

Alen Ingold (RB) Miami Dolphins 1TD +1300

This is one that if you play each week will hit about four times this year. It hasn’t paid off yet, but we’ve seen Ingold get goal-line work in Miami and missed out on one because of a bad call against Buffalo. Mike McDaniel wants to use him as their Kyle Juszczyk and he’s capable of getting the job done. 

Kyle Juszczyk (RB) San Francisco 49ers 1TD +700

Speaking of Juszczyk, he’s always a threat to score on the goal line but is also capable of taking a screen or wheel route to the house from outside the 10. His odds are around where I expect Ingold’s odds to be next season and I still love them. A pair of scores would pay a massive +6000.

River Cracraft (WR) Miami Dolphins 1TD +650

Cracraft is an end-zone target for Miami. He already has two TDs this season and both Tyreek Hill’s and Jaylen Waddle’s availability is up in the air this week. The only fear here is we don’t know if Teddy Bridgewater will look his way the same way Tua Tagovailoa has. 

Daniel Bellinger (TE) New York Giants 1TD +550 2TD +4500

The Giants are running out of people to throw the ball to and Bellinger has a TD this season. He also has eight targets over the past two games. With the news that Daniel Jones is expected to suit up this week, it’s hard to ask for more opportunity than what he has this week with odds above +500. 

Donald Parham Jr (TE) Las Angeles Chargers 1TD +500

Parham was expected to be the Chargers’ starter or co-starter at tight end this season before being placed on injured reserve. With how well Gerald Everett has played, Parham has become an afterthought. However, he is set to make his season debut this week and with Keenan Allen still sidelined there could be opportunities for him. This is a bit of a dart throw, but he has flashed reasons to make us throw the dart. 

Jordan Akins (TE) Houston Texans 1TD +550

Brevin Jordan is out, Pharaoh Brown was cut, and O.J. Howard isn’t particularly good. Houston’s tight end usage has been erratic and Akins is a proven red-zone commodity. He’s played two weeks this season and already has a touchdown. Akins and Howard are both about as likely as the other to find the end zone, but betting on Akins will bank you more money. In fact, +5500 for two scores. 

Chigoziem Okonkwo (TE) Tennessee Titans 1TD +650

Okonkwo was targeted as Tennessee’s  TE1 last week and simply looks like their best option. It is an opportunity for you to get +650 odds this week on a TE1 in an offense that loves to utilize the tight end. He’s worth throwing a few dollars on this Sunday. 

Adam Trautman (TE) New Orleans Saints 1TD +900

Trautman is coming off a three-target game, one of which was downfield and another in the red zone. He has fallen behind Juwan Johnson in the pecking order but is still seeing targets. Andy Dalton also seemed to look his way more than Jameis Winston and Dalton will be the starter again this week. He’s definitely worth a wager at +900.


Passing Props


Aaron Rodgers  Over 232.5

This is an easy over. Rodgers and the passing attack looked horrible the last two weeks against the Patriots and Bucs, and he still cleared 250 yards. New York allowed 266 passing yards to Ryan Tannehill in Week 1 but hasn’t faced any legitimate threat since. That will change in London. 


Rushing Props


James Robinson Over 62.5

Robinson has only failed to hit this mark once this season and it was against a brutal Eagles defense last week. A game in which Robinson only got eight carries. He averaged 17 carries and 76.6 yards per game in the three previous weeks. This time he gets the Texans who have allowed the most rushing yards to running backs this season at 141 yards per game. 


Receiving Props


Robert Woods Over 50.5

Only the Ravens have given up more yards to receivers than the Commanders. And Washington hasn’t had to face Stefon Diggs and Tyreek Hill. With Treylon Burks out, Woods is the WR1 in Tennessee and no one seems to be all that close behind. Conversely, Woods could hit this number in the first half.
