After a crazy good run, we came back down to reality last week with our player prop bets. Here are the player props for Thursday Night Football when Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos enter Oakland to take on Carson Palmer and the Raiders’ ugly fans.
Knowshon Moreno UNDER 75.5 Rushing Yards: I dropped Ronnie Hillman in fantasy this week… so I fully expect Knowshon will get hurt in Q1 and Hillman will rack up crazy numbers. Why? Because its the fantasy playoffs and this shit always happens to me. In all seriousness… I think that Peyton keeps the ball in the air for much of the game and Moreno’s rushing attempts are about 15.
Demaryius Thomas OVER 92.5 Receiving Yards: I think Thomas tops a hundo again this week. He is a physical freak and probably the most athletic WR that Peyton Manning has every played with. The two clearly have formed something special this season and they will continue to hone that against a crappy Raiders secondary as they prepare for their Super Bowl run.
Carson Palmer OVER 269.5 Passing Yards: And they will all come in the second half as always. Do not fret when he is sitting at like 112 yards at half. Palmer throws for more garbage time yards and TDs than anyone in the game.
Brandon Myers OVER 57.5 Receiving Yards: Myers has emerged as Palmer’s most reliable asset in the passing game. I think he is looking at 5 or 6 catches for 70+ yards and probably a score.
