Week 8 NFL Player Props of the Week


We’re back again with our favorite player props of the week. As we gear up for the Sunday action of Week 8, I’ve got some bets I’m eying.


Here are some of my favorite individual player props for Week 8.

Kenneth Walker Over 81.5 Rushing Yards

Kenneth Walker has done the gambling community a lot of good over these last couple weeks. With Rashaad Penny out for the season, he now has a chance to completely dominate on the ground. For me, the biggest challenge has been deciding between longest rush and yards. Walker’s short tenure as starting back has been filled with long runs, but I do think the almost guaranteed 20-plus carries gives us some safety here. Let’s take a look at how the Giants have fared against running backs over the last few weeks: 

The Giants allow a league-worst 5.7 yards per carry this season and have allowed multiple backs to have success this season. Walker is coming in with a 6.1 yards per carry (third) along with 25 forced missed tackles, putting together 200 yards after contact last week. The Giants defense ranks second worst with a 16% gash rate, meaning 16% of runs go for 10-plus yards against that defense. Giants/Seahawks is expected to be a very competitive game, and I think Walker has proved that he’s gamescript independent so far. 


George Kittle Over 51.5 Receiving Yards

George Kittle is someone I’ve faded so far this season (against the Rams even), but I think we have finally found ourselves in a good spot. One of the main reasons I faded him was because of how injured that offensive line was, but now that they have two starters back and healthy, we should see him used more in the receiving game. The signs over the last couple weeks have been positive, and now that Deebo Samuel is out, even more opportunity should open up for the tight end. 

San Francisco is also the underdog in this matchup, meaning we can probably expect some more passing in this gamescript. The Niners have now lost in back-to-back games, and Kittle went 6-93 and 8-83 on 19 total targets. Kittle should be more involved in this offensive and I’m expecting an impressive performance in a must-win divisional matchup.
