NFL Player of the Week 18 accessories: who’s going to end up strong?


Maybe Antonio Brown bailed out the Buccaneers because he also had “Rob Gronkowski anytime”. Sure, Tom Brady fed his boyfriend like we thought he would, but never for a touchdown. Meanwhile, Keenan Allen comforted Justin Herbert via a touchdown, but couldn’t go past his yardage total. Good idea but bad results mean we finished 4-6 last week to get 98-74-2 on the season.

Here are our player accessories for week 18.

Carson Wentz under 28.5 attempted passes

The Colts must win to advance to the playoffs, and the Jaguars must lose to get the top pick in the overall standings. So I think we know how this game goes. The Colts will look to Jonathan Taylor sooner and later.

With the Jaguars more than willing to play a vanilla defense, there’s no reason Indianapolis should do anything crazy relying on Wentz to throw it. The Colts haven’t thrown the ball more than 28 times since November in a shootout with the Buccaneers.

There’s also a good chance Wentz won’t need to play the fourth quarter with the game in hand and the playoffs looming.

Ben Roethlisberger under 226.5 passing yards

Good for Ben Roethlisberger to bid farewell to Pittsburgh on Monday. However, that couldn’t have happened soon enough for the Steelers legend. The writing is on the wall with yardage totals of 148, 159 and 123 over the last three games. Yes, the Ravens’ high school has been working lately, but Aaron Rodgers, Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford are a lot more capable at this point than Big Ben.

Ryan Tannehill over 214.5 passing yards

I don’t expect the Texans to turn around and let the Titans take the seed in the AFC. Their generally poor game will help Tennessee accomplish this. Whether it’s the Titans shooting early or having to show some urgency late, Tannehill will have to separate the horrific Houston secondary.

Jaret Patterson hit anytime (+240)

Washington would like to accomplish two things this weekend: According to Ron Rivera, they would like to make their young players play more. And thanks to Giants coach Joe Judge’s comments on “organizing the clown show,” I guess they want to put the brakes on New York as well.

Patterson had 12 runs and five targets last week and found himself in the end zone for the second time in three games. The tailback rookie will have 60 minutes of opportunity, and at +240 it’s worth including as an average touchdown bet.

Rob Gronkowski over 65.5 yards on reception

Gronkowski’s statistics could look like this Sunday: seven receptions, 85 yards, three touchdowns.

Why this weirdly specific stat line? Because those are the totals that Gronk needs to trigger half a million dollar bonuses for each stat. But while the first two are certainly doable thanks to its use last week, no touchdowns in week 17 means there’s a good chance it will fail in the last stat. That means other brands are even more important, and Brady always went out of his way to get his guys paid in the last game.

Gronkowski has +110 to score, and if you can find markets for him to score more than two or even three more – with Mike Evans on a bigger guaranteed deal and the other big pass catchers either injured or self-ejected – these are worth a pinch.

Stefon Diggs over 6.5 receptions

Sean McDermott is ruthless. Whether it’s late in the game against inferior opponents or struggling division rivals in the last game of the season, the Bills add stats and keep starters until there is no more life at home. the opponent. Stefon Diggs needs six captures to trigger an incentive contract. I think McDermott and Josh Allen are going out of their way to get the money from Diggs, and if that’s the case, we’ll get it too.

Mac Jones under 214.5 passing yards

Call me crazy, but I’m not convinced Jones is finishing this one in Miami. With a playoff game on the schedule next week, it’s possible Bill Belichick will see the Bills beat the Jets and take out Jones late. Even if he doesn’t, the Dolphins have managed to confuse the young quarterbacks with their pre-snap looks and creative blitz.

Matt Ryan on 214.5 passing yards

Ryan is playing well against the Saints’ defense. It helps that the Falcons’ lack of running play and the quarterback being frequently forced into a duel with Drew Brees forces Ryan to do it himself. While the latter no longer exists, the first has always done so in the first meeting, when Ryan threw for 343 yards.

Tyler Lockett over 56.5 yards on reception

Russell Wilson is finally healthy and suddenly has a running game. That opens things up for Lockett, who in his last four games against the Cardinals has averaged over seven catches and an eyelash of under 100 yards per game.

Elijah Mitchell over 68.5 rushing yards

Mitchell returns just in time for the playoffs, which means he gets the workload back in a make-or-die game for the 49ers. San Francisco’s running game was at its best with Mitchell getting the majority of carries (27 carries, 91 yards against the Rams earlier this season).
