A 2-1 mark with my player prop picks in Week 10 boosted my overall record for the season to 20-10. With only two teams on a bye, we have plenty of player props to sift through for Week 11. Here are three to consider. All odds were obtained from BetMGM, TwinSpires, and Caesars.
Top Week 11 NFL Player Props For 11/21/2021
Carolina Panthers vs. Washington Football Team: Christian McCaffrey Over 115.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards (-115)
In his first game back from injury, McCaffrey had to face a tough defense in the Patriots in Week 9. He played well, though, finishing with 106 total yards. He was even busier in Week 10, turning 13 carries and 10 receptions into 161 total yards. The Panthers’ offense could be more potent after the addition of Cam Newton at quarterback, which might enable them to sustain longer drives. Add in a Washington defense that lost star defensive lineman Chase Young (knee) last week, and McCaffrey could be in line for a big day.
Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans: Brandin Cooks Over 5.5 Receptions (+100)
Cooks has been busy this season, recording 84 targets across nine games. His 67.9 percent catch rate isn’t anything to write home about, but the massive target share has still enabled him to record at least six receptions in a game five times. The Titans have allowed the most receptions to wide receivers in the league, so taking a chance on the over here at plus odds is appealing.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. San Francisco 49ers: Dan Arnold Over 43.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
The Jaguars’ offense is a mess. Rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence only has eight touchdown passes compared to nine interceptions. Part of the reason for his struggles could be the limited amount of talent the team has at wide receiver. With so few viable options there, Lawrence has turned to his tight end Arnold to help. Over the last three games, Arnold has received at least seven targets each time. That enabled him to record at least 60 receiving yards each time. If the Jaguars dig themselves another early hole in this game, their need to throw a lot in the second half could benefit Arnold.
