- NFL player props are now available for the 2019 season.
- Below are NFL yardage and touchdown over/unders for passing, rushing and receiving.
With the 2019 NFL season upon us, a number of sportsbooks have released season-long player props. These are usually a fan favorite, and similar to win totals, allow bettors to invest and root for something over the course of the season.
Below are six prop categories from DraftKings: passing yards, passing touchdowns, rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
When it comes to QBs, reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes has the highest numbers with 4650.5 yards and 35.5 touchdowns. Last year, he threw for 50 TDs to go along with 5,097 yards — second behind Ben Roethlisberger’s 5,129.
Of the quarterbacks listed, rookie Kyler Murray has the lowest expectations at 3500.5 yards and 21.5 touchdowns. Baker Mayfield was the sole rookie quarterback to eclipse either of those marks last season.
Saquon Barkley tops the list in both rushing categories, though it should be noted that some notable names such as Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon are absent from the list.
Barkley rushed for 1,307 yards in his rookie campaign and oddsmakers expect him to improve upon that number in his sophomore season.
Ravens QB Lamar Jackson doesn’t have any passing props posted, but he does have a rushing yards over/under of 825.5. Despite not starting until Week 11 last year, Jackson rushed for an impressive 695 yards.
Ravens Coach John Harbaugh literally said to take this over, so do with that information what you will.
As for pass-catchers, Julio Jones has the highest yardage total by more than 100 yards. His 1,677-yard performance last year was 105 yards more than DeAndre Hopkins.
Here’s how Jones has fared in receiving yards over the past five years:
- 2018: 1,677 (1st)
- 2017: 1,444 (2nd)
- 2016: 1,409 (2nd)
- 2015: 1,871 (1st)
- 2014: 1,593 (3rd)
Not bad, but we also know that he’s had some trouble finding the end zone compared to other elite receivers, which is why Davante Adams has the highest touchdown total at 10.5.
With Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb both out of the picture now, Adams is the only proven receiver for Rodgers to trust.
Adams had 13 touchdowns last year and 10 in 2017. He and Hopkins are the only two players with double-digit receiving touchdowns in each of the past two seasons.
