Top Week 1 NFL Player Props For 9/12/2021
It’s a new era for the Saints with Drew Brees now retired. Jameis Winston takes over as the team’s starting quarterback after he beat out Taysom Hill in training camp. That’s good news for Kamara since Hill is more of a running quarterback than he is a passer. Across the four games that Hill started at quarterback, Kamara only had a total of 10 receptions. Heading into Week 11 before Hill took over, Kamara had totaled at least five receptions in eight of his first nine games. The Saints don’t have many viable options at wide receiver with Michael Thomas (ankle) out, so Kamara has the potential to be very busy in the passing game as the Saints try to keep up with the Packers’ offense.
The Hurts rushing prop is one of the first that I looked for in Week 1. He started and played three full games last season, finishing with at least 63 rushing yards in each contest. He carried the ball at least nine times in each game, which should be a trend that continues this season. Even when he was pulled early in their final game last year, he still carried the ball eight times. With a chance to nearly double your money, the over here is very appealing.
Gibson’s rookie season should be considered as nothing other than a success. He rushed for 795 yards and 11 touchdowns, including three scores in a big performance against the Cowboys in Week 12. Washington leaned on him more as the season moved along, resulting in him carrying the ball at least 14 times in four of his final six games. One of the times that he failed to reach that threshold was when he left a game early because of an injury. With his main competition in the backfield being primarily a pass-catching threat in J.D. McKissic, Antonio Gibson could blow by the over here.
