If fretting wagering on NFL spreads — historically the sharpest lines available at any book — props can be an intriguing and outright fun way to have skin in the game for a player’s performance each and every week. This ongoing series will be a weekly feature outlining my favorite player props for TNF, including the six detailed below. All props and odds have been sourced accordingly and tracked for accountability at the bottom of every write-up.

Kyler Murray OVER 54.5 Rushing Yards (-115) — PointsBet Sportsbook
This is a two-unit wager as Murray has averaged 67 rushing yards across nine appearances and now gets a Seattle front-seven that’s been plugged for the third-most rushing attempts (55) and 10th-most yards on the ground by enemy quarterbacks. If Murray doesn’t exceed this number, it won’t be for a lack of trying since he’s also averaged 9.6 scrambles per game. Seattle most recently permitted Murray to rush for 14/67/1 in their last meeting in Week 7.
Chase Edmonds OVER 2.5 Receptions (-152) — DraftKings Sportsbook
Chase Edmonds OVER 22.5 Receiving Yards (-115) — PointsBet Sportsbook
There’s a chance Kenyan Drake (ankle) is limited for this short turnaround in only his second game back from a high-ankle sprain. Even if he’s not, though, Edmonds has averaged 3.6 catches and 30.3 receiving yards in eight games with Drake this year. Note that Edmonds played 34 snaps to Drake’s 36 last week against the Seahawks — the duo’s closest margin in a full game together this year.
Carlos Hyde UNDER 12.5 Receiving Yards (-112) — PointsBet Sportsbook
Hyde has averaged 6.5 routes run per game and will likely be usurped on passing downs for DeeJay Dallas, who has surged as Seattle’s receiving back despite surrounding usage for Alex Collins (practice squad) and Travis Homer (knee, out) of late. Arizona has also allowed the ninth-fewest receptions to opposing running backs, limiting opportunities for Bo Scarbrough, Dallas, and Hyde from the get-go.
Greg Olsen UNDER 23.5 Receiving Yards (-115) — PointsBet Sportsbook
Olsen’s snap count (57%) has plummeted since Seattle’s Week 6 bye to accommodate for both Will Dissly (47%) and Jacob Hollister (31%) in that span. That’s not to say Olsen can’t achieve this number; he’ll presumably continue seeing an 8.8% target share to Hollister’s (8.1%) and Dissly’s (5%) shares, as all have battled for since Week 7. The Cardinals have quietly allowed the 10th-fewest yards per attempt (6.5) to opposing tight ends this season.
