We made it all the way to the final week of the regular season in our prop bets article series and up until now, we’ve followed a pretty consistent methodology and done pretty well with it. This week, we need to check ourselves a bit because not all of these games will be played with the same level of vigor. The first question we have to ask ourselves is who needs a win this weekend and lean on our stars there. Stay away from your Ravens, 49ers, and Chiefs, for example. This weekend does not matter to them.
Here’s what I came up with:
Wide Receivers: Mike Evans and Chris Godwin at Panthers, DK Metcalf at Cardinals, Jayden Reed and DJ Moore in Bears at Packers, CeeDee Lamb at Commanders, Chris Olave vs Falcons
Quarterbacks: Baker Mayfield at Panthers, Dak Prescott at Commanders, Josh Allen at Dolphins
Running Backs: Rachaad White at Panthers, Kenneth Walker III at Cardinals
Week 18 is weird. Lean in where you can with what you can trust. We’ll no doubt get some unsung heroes that come out of left field to post a big game but I’m not one to chase that. Have fun and we’ll see you in the playoffs.
